All of these statements might be true

They are easily demonstrated as true.

but not necessarily meaningful unless one either crops a lot, prints very large, or has pixel peeping as a favorite pastime.

If you are happy with reasonable 10x8 prints or viewing on a low resolution low priced laptop  then improvements may not be meaningful - to you.

What I find ironic is that I encountered more than once on this forum that some of the same folks who criticize older cameras and lenses are raving about new smartphones.

Maybe this is because using them sensibly and taking advantage of their inbuilt post processing ability they can usually easily exceed 10x8 inch print standard - are are even good for 4k monitors.

The smartphones do not have a significant telephoto lens option - but sometimes at wider angles straight out of a smartphone can beat straight out of an old DSLR and lens.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
