But look at the Jack Daniels bottle in the back (I was weened off Jack before I got married ). Tho not a focal point of either pic, the detail is clearer in the One's pic than the iPhone's. At least in this comparison, I would think the advantage goes to the One.

I think that you just got your question answered, in large part if not completely, about the suitability of the One camera and you just identified the one with fewer megapixels as having better detail. On a close-up.

Megapixels. Myth.

Color and contrast. Fact.
Yep, this is what clinched it for me. The iPhone camera is great, sure, but the One camera edges it out for the type of use I will be putting it through. I think the picture from the iPhone might be a tad closer but it didn't really change that the Balvenie bottle stayed washed out at any short distance on the screen of the iPhone as I took the picture.

I'm more than happy to take a couple more comparison shots of something else if it would assist though?
