Why can my naked eye see the full moon clearly, but my phone camera can’t?

This morning as I was going to work, the full moon was in the sky and very bright. I could clearly see the dark spots on it. I got my phone out (after stopping) and thought to get a picture, but no matter how I tried to focus the camera, it couldn’t see the moon as anything but a bright ball of light, like looking into a flashlight. Why was it so difficult for my phone to capture this image that my eye could see so clearly?

Believe it or not, millions of years of evolution can result in a pretty good camera and image processor (eye and brain).
