Are you sure?
I think an average consumer camera has the edge on all technical/photographic parameters compared to a phone camera. Less noise/better light sensitivity, sharper image, less distortion, better colourrepresentation, better control on shutter and iris, better build in flash, better image stabilisation etc etc.
The cameraphone however is better in how we handle our pictures and the device; uploading it to facebook, whatsapp, better portablility etc etc, and has a better screen in most cases.
So the cameraphone gets the upper hand when the technical aspects of the photo are good enough, when they are acceptable. A better photo at some point doesnt outweigh the convenience of a dedicated camera.
