I grant that cameras in cell phones are hard to beat for portability and availability when you need them. I'll even grant that they meet the basic needs of casual photographers. Nevertheless, today's cell phones still leave something to be desired for more serious photographers, as I pointed out in post #9.

Let me counter that by asking the resolution of images used.

Newsprint, online, billboards, magazines. None of those are high resolution. Even movies and tv is not high resolution.

What does this have to do with the issue? I have already granted that image resolution of even the cheapest devices is adequate for most purposes, within limitations. Nevertheless, you can expect the resolution to drop below acceptable limits if this image must undergo a draconian crop to simulate a telephoto, especially if the image was taken under low light where noise or denoising artifacts or limited dynamic range interferes too much with general image quality. Casual photographers won't necessarily care about such issues, but more sophisticated photographers/viewers will. Furthermore, even the casual photographers will still notice the better image quality from better equipment, even if the quality from the "everyday' stuff may be okay with them. It is a difference between "okay" and noticeably better.
