I think the advantages of a phone is the convenience... Makes it easier for a layman to get a good pictureWhy not just put a sim card in a Canon DSLR. It would take far better pics and cost a lot less than a phone with a dinky camera. The tech gap is so large between a good camera (even a point and shoot) and what is in a phone, that it is unlikely to ever close. It's like trying to race a motorbike on a bicycle. Yes there are fast bicycles and riders but they will never be as fast as motorbikes.
I do understand...but the mechanisms are different. The phone manufacturers are just trying to make life simpler for us... Check out the mobile photography thread... U will see what I am talking aboutSensor size and quality for a start. The biggest difference between a phone and a point and shoot. the same as the difference between a professional camera and an amature camera.

The best camera is the one you have with you. Cellphone cameras these days are good enough IMO that for the average unskilled photographer you'd actually be worse off witha DSLR that you don't know how to use well.
