Nothing new, but casual portrait so much better than a phone

Yesterday I was having lunch inside a cafe, sitting across the table from a friend. I pulled my RX100M3 out of a jacket pocket, turned it on, set it to "A" (wide open) and then zoomed fully (70mm equiv), all in a very few seconds. I got a quick shot, aided by face detection, and it turned out really good. It overexposed the face (to my taste) but since I shot RAW it was no problem adjusting it in DxO PhotoLab4, in addition to virtually eliminating any noise. The background is nicely blurred, and there is no way I could match that shot with a phone; although I have to admit that I'm not up to speed on the capabilities of the new phone cameras.
