iPhone 12 Pro Telephoto vs. X-T4 + 35mm f/1.4

First X-T4 image is SOOC, full auto, +0 Exp comp., Classic Chrome +3 color. iPhone image is with portrait mode (obviously). This is not intended to be a 'good' images or to 'show what the sensor can do.' It's intended to replicate the kind of casual portrait of a kid that normal users often take with their camera, in full auto, with less than perfect focus placement etc. That said. . .the iPhone is obviously much smarter than the X-T4, while the X-T4 image is obviously better from a technical IQ standpoint, the difference isn't huge when viewed even on a desktop screen. It's amazing that we're even having this discussion. . . some extraordinary computational photography going on here.

Also for everyone who's going to say 'the Max will be even better', the tele lens will be longer (65mm vs 50mm equivalent) but I don't think the sensor will be any bigger than the one in the 12 Pro. The only larger sensor is in the 24mm 'Wide' camera, which is also the only one with OIS. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
