It all depends on what you want to use it for. Phones are OK for landscape, street photography and selfies as such but no phone, no matter what make, will ever match a decent, bridge, DSLR or mirrorles camera, especially if your passion is wildlife (IMHO). On Flickr ,there are hundreds of IPHONE groups (see here:- https://www.flickr.com/search/groups/?text=iphone ) have a look at some of the photo's and you will see what I mean. The first rule of photography, for anyone though is...... you have to be there.On the other end of the spectrum… when my wife’s fairly expensive (too us) £500+ point and shoot camera developed a fault I asked my amateur photographer sister what camera we should buy to replace it. She knew Hilary had an iPhone 12 Pro and advised that this would meet our needs. I appreciate that this would not suit the more demanding photographer but is it true that mobile phone cameras have developed to a point where more serious photographers can forego their expensive equipment?
Aahh how wise are you, that fits me exactly. If I go out to take photographs I take my all singing all dancing Olympus.. if I am out and see something I unexpectedly want to snap I use my phone. ‘Cept this morning trudging with dog thru a foot of virgin snow I used iPhone. But the snow was so bright I couldn’t see cos of the reflection. And I wished I’d had the camera. In short - I’ve never got the right one at the right time in the right place.It’s the mindset too - do you go out to take photographs, or do you take photographs when you go out……….??

When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white you photograph their souls.I don't see the point of black & white photography.
The pictures look totally drained of 'life'.
