the phone cam doesnt let u have "physical" control over those settings what a real cam does.
the closest maybe will be haptic feedback buttons

just like driving auto over manual cars...makes things so much easier for beginners...and u feel more in control driving a stick.

the phone camera sensor size is also smaller compared to APSC/4-3 let alone FF so most are "digitally enhanced" images...like how i am fascinated by the p20 cameras performing in lowlight

of course if your pictures are just for instagram..... stick with a phone cam...saves you trouble of transferring the pics over though it is more seemless nowadays. no one is gonna pixel peep 400%....u can even get away with easy editors to remove some artifacts

How much is the GR III going for now ? If price similar to LX100 Mark II, my recommendation would actually go to the panasonic despite M43 sensor.
Not cheap, its about USD1000, but not official yet. Launching only Feb/Mar. LX100MkII is good too. But not pocketable like my X100F. GR II is expected to be cheaper, as usual. Can get that instead, might be a better choice than GRIII due to the flash.

I recommend GR III

Used GRD 3 & GR. Love them to death. But all 2 were short lived.

Now looking forward for the GR III to come out so that I can retire my X100F(if I can convince wife on why I need "GR III" when I have an X100F). I always use an fixed lens compact, X100F is the biggest & heaviest cam I ever own. I really missed the small and pocket friendly size of GRs.

Here's one sample gallery shot on GR

GR 3 is not out yet, and I'm on the fence on getting a GR2 because... well like kinda a bit 'wasted' to buy a old model when a new one is coming out soon. I know, this is not the case for cameras, where people actually encourage to get an older model of a camera if budget permits. Nothing wrong with that. It's about me. lol

If u really want learn photography.. Get an entry DSLR.
That's what I thought, too.

I spoke to few reputable camera shops. All of them told me the same advice. Do not get an DSLR, just for the sake of the name DSLR.

If you want to learn, a decent mirrorless system can enable you to learn as well. Yes, you will miss the optical viewfinder, and your selection of lens available for the particular mounting type is VERY limited.. But, do you really need all the lens out in the market available to you?

GR II is still very good, but I am like you though, knowing the new one is around the corner, I will spend more to get the latest.

The bigger the sensor generally the better the low light.
And the bigger the sensor, the more expensive it gets.
