While there is an argument that there is still a future for compact digital cameras, in is undeniable that mobile phone cameras have surpassed them in popularity and, in many ways, photographic potential. In order to assess this potential it is important to review the similarities between each camera type. 

Both types of device are designed with portability and ease of use in mind, rather than absolute image quality. Compacts and smartphones feature much smaller sensors than DSLRs and common mirrorless cameras and as such are limited in their maximum pixel count and ISO sensitivity. This makes large image reproductions and low-light shooting less practical than when using a full frame camera, APS-C or even a Micro Four Thirds model
