Thanks Luke. I appreciate the information. My phone is definitely convenient as far as taking and uploading photos.

Melissa, if you know what you're doing, you can put a smartphone camera into manual mode and adjust settings that way.

I've stopped using my point-and-shoot and opt to just use my S7 for most of my photography.

Just invest in a rechargeable battery pack of a high mAh capacity, and don't cheap out on it unless you enjoy the smell of burnt plastic (And burning everything else.)
