A lot of handset vendors actually do use their own handsets. Made with iPhone, for example, uses only iPhone cameras. Now, they do spruce them up with bolt-on lenses and a bit of retouching, but you could theoretically make those same pictures if you owned an iPhone (and some bolt-on lenses). While Samsung has been busted in a few markets doing this, they generally also use their own handsets for such marketing in the US and Europe. The trick is, their cameras don't suck.
As a general rule, though, you aren't wrong.
