I'm a firm believer that it also matters who's taking the pics, and it's sometimes the photographer that makes the difference from time to time.
I will say the above pic of the Breitling is very good compared to some of the others.
I've come to still expect this from phones, simply due to sensor and lens sizing. I'm known to shrug cell phone cameras off as long as they take semi decent pics anyway because my wife and I do photography as a hobby, so anything that is worth photographing, we take a Canon 5D MKIII around to shoot with... but in a pinch a cell should do a decent job. It seems to me that the phone, just like all the others i've used, really struggles even in moderate lighting, and to get anything worth while the light has to be spilling in (Again, lending back to the sensor/lens).
