The iPhone5, 5s and 6' cameras are amazing for basic, well-lit shots which lack moving objects. I owned a 5, and now a 6. I produce a trail-guide book as well as a map brochure and have used iPhone shots in both print publications. iPhone cameras have a near-RAW-equivilant capability that the vast majority of digital cameras lack: saving images as .tiff formatted files. This lossless image file format should be mandatory in quality cameras, as most laymen are not familiar or technically savvy enough to post-process RAW formatted files. I can only imagine that the reason for embracing lossy .jpg as the standard / default file format is due to lack of serious processing power in most classic cameras. But that is likely to change soon, with dual, quad and octo-core microprocessors becoming incredibly common. I love my '6' and look forward to the iPhone7 and beyond. Add some improved glass, larger sensors and more advanced pixel extrapolation, and get the public over the 'thinner is better' headspace, and I see camera-phones destroying not only point and shoot sales, but mauling DSLR sales as well.

I expect cellphones will continue overtaking traditional cameras, just because that is what people carry around, and cellphone cameras are getting better and better each year. Not that I am saying cellphones will ever replace or take better photos then a nice DSLR. But they are getting good enough for the people who just want a decent looking photo. But I did find it interesting that all of the brands had an increase especially Samsung. Apple may have over taken Nikon but, Samsung had a higher percentage increase overall, and over took Sony. But Samsung has Cameras and phones, so they have the advantage of having an extra market share.
