I have an iPhone 13 Pro Max with the Procamera app. Low light is definitely improved and my mobile is now easily a decent alternative to the Sony RX100 IV that I used to carry around.

99% of my photography is taken on my mobile phone, previously Samsumg S20 Ultra.

My Canon R5 and RF lenses, especially my RF70-200 2.8 and RF100-500, blow the 13 Pro Max away for quality and the mobile cannot match the autofocus tracking and a host of other tools. The R5 is very clearly the more capable Camera and so it should be.

But my mobile is always with me. I spend 3-5 hours a day cycling and I can't have my best gear while training but I do have my phone in my jersey pocket.

The iPhone 13Pro camera seems pretty good. I wish I could get along with Apple iOS because I'd otherwise jump ship from my S21 Ultra.

Sony is releasing a phone with their 1” sensor from the RX100 VII next month. That will surely be the best camera phone ever.

Wow! A 1" sensor from the RX series? Even with it using just 12mp of the 1" sensor this is still a huge development. Packing a 1" sensor into a smartphone has huge implications for future improvement of phone imaging systems using this sensor. Smartphone camera systems are advancing far, far faster than I expected. If use of 1" sensors spreads then this will decimate a wide swath of ILC cameras in just a few years time. This might be why Canon may not offer APS-C in the R system.  It might not be a good long term proposition.
