They suck, but for different reasons than you might think.
You are stuck with a small aperture of 2 mm give or take and 1-3 focal lengths.
The typical phone camera has the equivalent focal length of 24 mm at about 2 mm aperture, making equivalent to a 24 mm f/12 lens.
That is good for snapshots where you want to get everything into the frame and in focus.
However it sucks since you can use only that aperture and focal length, maybe 2 more on some phones but they are usualy just different focal lengths with simmilar apertures.
If you want to take a portrait, you want some 50-100 mm of focal length at the equivalent of F/2 (give or take).
A new IPhone has 52 mm normal lens, but also with only a tiny aperture of what? 3 mm?
That's f/17 and terrible for portraits.
An interchangeable lens camera with a kit-lens and a fast prime as an example could use the kit lens as a wide angle and stop it down for a shot with everything in focus for something like the 1st example.
But it can also open up the aperture pretty wide with the fast prime for portraits.
You can also mount a telephoto or superzoom lens for stuff that is far away.
And that's just the beginning, proper cameras give you far more options and manual controll than phones ever could.
And in addition to that, they also have better image quality, but that's not as important if you don't do large prints.
