Default Smart Phone VARIO?

So how far have the smart phones and apps come to use as accurate Varios? I've read some mixed opinions on accuracy but mainly due to smart phones not having built in barometer capabilities. Well now some smartphones do have the barometer built in and I've heard some pilots are selling off their vario for an "App". For HG I've read they do just fine? Has anyone tried an App vrs a dedicated Vario? Any thoughts?

Sri, I did some research on the S4 and it certainly appears like it has all the sensors needed for accurate flight info feedback....hmmmm
