Now if you plan on making big enlargements, or selling your images, then your cell phone might not be the best choice. But for most of the pictures that most people take, a cell phone is the tool of choice.
My opinion is that you should always have a camera with you, but what camera you bring along isn't important. What's important is that you have a camera--any camera--and your cell phone will do just fine in most cases.
Vision is what matters, not equipment.
