What's the point of a compact camera in 2017 and beyond?

I took both my iphone 7 plus and TZ100 out with me on my daily bike ride yesterday and did a couple of grab shots that to me clearly illustrate the death of the point and shoot. Remember this is a £500 camera that just takes photo's versus a £600 phone that makes phone calls, is a sat nav, a note book, a book reader, a diary, and all manner of other devices. OK it's lacking a decent zoom but that's on its way..........

There is a difference in IQ but to the average punter with no specific photographic knowledge, skill or serious interest it's not an issue in the slightest
