Each to their own. I like it that way, and I do use a calibrated color managed work flow in Darktable. I purposely de-saturated the colors and reduced contrast. This is another version from the phone.
I don't like the saturation. But maybe this is more to your tastes.

Personally I find the stone (buildings & cliff face) improved slightly in the second but the foreground foliage is ghastly, much better in the first.
I don't see the 64MP adds anything to the image compared to one of my ageing digital cameras, even the 6MP models.

Phone cameras are great. I hate them, but they're great. I use mine quite a bit in my line of work, make money from it even. Quick, convenient, efficient. Look at those gorgeous images. What more could a "proper" camera bring to the table? Did I mention I hate them?

These were all shot with a Samsung Note 8 or Note 10. My Pen-F or Leica X113 would have given me better files, but I'm glad I had the phone to capture these. If I am going out "shooting", I prefer to use one of my cameras, if for no other reason than I like the experience of using a camera. But cell phones have gotten surprisingly good, and if need be I can usually get a perfectly good 8x10 print from their files. Part of me hates that they have gotten this good (and there are better phone cameras than what I have), but they have. These were all processed with Snapseed on the Note 10+
