Good pictures can be taken with the camera on the MAXX HD. The various shots users here have taken provide excellent examples of that. And it's definitely a better performer than most low range to mid range devices out there. It's just disappointing that Motorola hasn't seen the need to jump into the big leagues on this front with Samsung, HTC, and Apple. I'm really hoping they get their act together next year when Google's influence will start being directly felt in the devices that get released.
