Nowadays, they are capable of producing good quality photos that can also be edited either with a smartphone editing app or a desktop one. With smartphones being so lightweight, discreet, and quick to use, it's no wonder that many enjoy shooting with them on the go.

I agree 90%
the last picture with a man standing there and looking somewhere just to stand there does not make a better landscape picture for me. Did you ever saw someone standing in the landscapes from for example Ansel Adams? It would be much different with a fisherman standing.
if your smartphone offers RAW, shoot in RAW and do the best post processing, you can
try a wider view by using the panorama function of your phone, but than you get only JPG
