These are really close, even in lower light which is crazy. Most trained photographers will be able to spot the iPhone shots because of the aggressive bokeh, not because the overall photo is inferior quality, but your average person would never be able to spot that. I think if he had edited the iPhone photos by increasing the aperture slider to more match the look of the bokeh in the 1DX, they would pretty indistinguishable. The bokeh in portrait mode looks too mushy and fake to me if the aperture is anything more than about f/4 in most shots. You really have to watch it and adjust accordingly.

The most surprising thing here to me was at the 4 minute mark. The iPhone nails the tricky lighting situations where the 1DX struggles and blows out the backgrounds and sky. It’s those things like smart HDR, Night Mode, and now Deep Fusion, that are making these smartphone cameras really good these days and in some cases, even better than high end cameras.

Seems like you want some kind of better/more intelligent 'auto' mode for the 1DX. Not entirely unreasonable, but why would Canon invest in implementing that if that is not the reason people buy the 1DX? Nobody in their right mind is cross-shopping between the 1DX and a smartphone. Its a bit like complaining dump trucks don't have sun-roofs or in-built seat massagers or rear seat DVD players.
