Sometimes the hardware and software of a phone's camera just does not meet the exacting standards of an owner but does for another hence the different reviews people leave.
We all 👀 differently in photographs.
I use the Samsung Galaxy s²² Ultra which is a flagship phone from Samsung and it's the same with mine which has the latest camera hardware and software.
To me my photo's look great but others leave comments that theirs isn't great.
Maybe a dslr camera maybe your option to using a phone unless your next intended phone ticks your wants and needs boxes.
I wish you all the best.
