Straight out of the camera, it appears the smart phone wins hands down for the best picture to post on the web. It has great color, sharpness, depth of field, and it seems to have more pop than the DSLR cameras. Keep in mind the smart phone captured the image in jpeg, so it probably did some internal sharpening, tonal correction and color compression automatically. The two Canon DSLR cameras are doing RAW capture, so the images out of the cameras need sharpening and some tonal work from the get-go.
Verdict: For fast web posting, the smart phone is a great quick and dirty solution. At least for this image, no post-capture processing is needed for a very respectable picture.
Now, let's do some pixel peeping. Here are crops from each image, of approximately the same area of the butterfly:

Final verdict: An image from the Android smart phone is fine for web viewing, but will disappoint if printed on paper much larger than 4x6 or 5x7 inches.
