With their high-quality sensors, powerful shooting modes and multitude of camera settings, smartphones have shown point-and-shoot cameras the door. There are even some flagship smartphones that give lower-cost mirrorless cameras and DSLRs a run for their money. But some smartphone cameras are simply better than others.
