Z6ii sharper images help.

Hello all, thank you for taking the time out to read this. I purchased a z6ii at the beginning of the year and don't have any previous experience except 4 years of photography in high school but that was 25 years ago... I had fun with it then and wanted to get back into it. Experience could very well be the issue here and I'm fine with that as an answer. Originally the z 6ii I got was intended for astrophotography and didn't consider it for anything else, however after having the camera for a while astro isn't as high on the list like I thought it would and really only applies to me in the winter so I don't have to stay up so late, now I find myself using the camera much more than I anticipated in day light for landscape, architecture, everything really and it's a lot of fun. The images I've taken are sharp especially after a bit of modification in LRC but I feel like images are still lacking a bit and are missing some pizazz and haven't taken anything I really find print worthy, maybe its just timing and location (probably) but I have found that the camera on my phone takes images that seem just as good with LRC edits which i feel shouldn't be the case. Currently I'm using the kit lens 24-70 f\4 and was considering the 20mm 1.8 Or any lens for that matter in hopes I could obtain that missing bit of sharpness/clarity I was looking for but it got me wondering, would purchasing the z 7 be a better option? with the 24-70 f4? Should I just keep the z 6ii and get a 24-70 f2.8? 14-24? 14-30 f4? Or would the 20mm prime be sufficient? Is that missing element obtained by a lens upgrade or is it the camera? Is 45mp that much better than 24.5? I've read tons of articles/reviews about this and am confused some say the 45mp is only for large prints and to not dwell on mp size which is how I came to purchase the z6ii but I've read recently that the 45mp produces better imagery regardless of the print size. I was going to buy the 20mm 1.8 today after reading great testing reviews and then this morning found an article saying the 20mm was just OK and that the 14-30 f/4 was way better. Perhaps I'm just crazy and over analyzing all these reviews and I should just get off the computer and just take better pics with the equipment I have? Again, thank you for reading and any insight that anyone has to offer would be greatly appreciated.
