These are really close, even in lower light which is crazy.

No they aren't.

How's that iPhone do in low-light at 400mm-equivalent and a fixed shutter speed of 1/400th to freeze motion?

Answer: The iPhone won't even get a shot, while the SLR and 400/2.8 will get great shots.

I don't think anyone is seriously suggesting that an iPhone can replace a DSLR and 400 f/2.8 for situations suited to that gear.

Frankly, it strikes me as silly to point out that there are situations in which large, heavy, expensive gear will perform better than a phone. It's a bit like pointing out how your 7Dii and 400 2.8 are absolutely the wrong imaging equipment for undertaking a gastroscopy or colonoscopy (ouch). Or, closer to the point, for taking a wide angled landscape or a portrait in a confined space - things any smartphone camera will do a much better job of.

One of my lenses is the Canon 8-15 zoom fisheye which will crush any smartphone in a confined space.
