Spoiler alert: not well.

Smartphone image quality has improved rapidly over the past few years, creating a fun sub-genre of YouTube videos pitting smartphones against vastly more expensive cameras. (Watch, for instance, how the iPhone 7 compares to a Red Weapon.)

In this video, via Potato Jet, we have what may be the toughest comparison yet, an iPhone 7 vs. an $82,000 Arri Alexa. Suffice it to say that, in this case at least, you do indeed get what you pay for. See for yourself.
