As much as anything thats because you let the camera fire its flash (which is comparatively powerful), thats why it ended up overexposed but with detail visible.

Forcing the flash off on the camera would give you more comparable results

the flash was off they still make it look pink without flash of strange

Thats because its overexposing to preserve detail - see how the darker detail gets lost on the phone picture.

The thing about a proper camera is it gives you more control, you can change the metering mode or crank the exposure down a bit to compensate for difficult conditions like that whereas with most phones its pretty much all auto which either works okay or terribly depending on the scene

I dont believe that the flash was off on the canon, the shadows don't look natural enough.

Yeah it definitely fired, says so in the EXIF data
