Lightroom 6, Lightroom Mobile and the Creative Cloud - Just a lot of hot air?

Lightroom 6, Lightroom Mobile and the Creative Cloud - Just a lot of hot air?
'I've been impressed by Lightroom 6 as I've written in a previous post and as part of the deal I get Lightroom Mobile to install on all my phones and tablets (well actually not my Windows phone Nokia, Adobe don't support that) so I can sync up all photos taken on those and automatically have them turn up in Lightroom.

'It works well because small sensor video has been around for years anyway. After all a 1080 video frame is only 2.1MP, which makes it not that difficult to turn out decent footage. And that footage compares very well with other better specified cameras I have.'

It stitches together pretty well, with only the odd (fixable error) the great thing is that you see it emerging as you move the iPad.

Are the Apple iPad air 2 / iPhone 6 genuine photographic tools? Nokia 1020 Raw Samples and iPad AIR 2 jpg. samples.
Since the camera on it is much the same specs. as an iPhone 6 and supposedly very similar* (See below). I thought I'd have a look at what it can do.
