I'll stick to my handy dandy Canon. The only smartphone that can match it's quality is the 1520/808/1020/Icon. Props to Nokia for that.

1520 and Icon downsized to 5MP. For those, I should have added compare.

But 808 and 1020 match/exceed quality without a doubt.

I think you should have written the only phone which can outclass your handy dandy canon quality is Lumia 1020 or 808 instead of this"the only smartphone that can match its quality is the......as Lumia 1020 and 808 has better quality

Most of the pictures posted to social media or sent via the internet are taken by phones. I don't think that many of those pictures were taken by a dedicated camera. Posting a photo taken by most camera is no where near as simple as posting a photo taken by a phone.

Last Summer I traveled with my family in a holiday, I carried A Canon G12 camera & my smartphone (Galaxy S3 mini), I found out that I can take pictures with my smartphone more easier, I used my camera only one time, but I used my smartphone for taking pictures every day.

I know that the quality my camera offer is much much better than my S3 mini but I ignored the quality, I just upgrade to Galaxy S4 to solve quality issues.

I believe companies like Canon & Nikon should start developing smartphone cameras
