is there something wrong with my gopro, or do they just take meh pictures

I was wonder if there might be somthing wrong with my gopro hero 7 black that I just got, or if the gopro just doesn't take good pictures. this is my first action camera so maybe I'm doing somthing wrong here. I took some photos but noticed that they weren't as detailed as I expected and seemed worse than what I thought other peoples photos looked when I was doing research into whether or not to buy it. so I took a photo from the same place with my galaxy s8 and the details seemed more fine and sharp. Specifically zoom in on that car in the background that you can see through the branches. I will put the 2 pictures below. is this normal? I was only using defualt settings except for linear mode
