My point though - the RAZR MAXX takes fairly good pictures. The HD doesn't have nearly the same sensor quality, nor does it have image stabilization.
The other thing I noticed is that despite what some said, the only way I could get a "decent" photo from the RAZR HD is to manually focus it using whatever object has the proper lighting in the shot. If I leave it to the camera it fails every time.
I attached more samples to show what I mean (had to edit because DF isn't linking the images properly).
This first one is a standard shot near sunset, where I purposely focused on the tree to the left. Zooming in you can see that this sharpness is maintained, but the ground is blurry and the trees in the distance are rife with noise. I didn't change any settings except Portrait and there is no post processing.
Same scene but this time with HDR. I set focus on the tree in profile. Not only are the colors way blown out but again, sharpness in the distance is totally a pipe dream. Without tapping on the tree on the left side, it also gets blurry.
Same scene, no tap, no HDR. This is a joke.
