If you notice, the colours are not quite true to life. Too cool. Here the image is again after applying some filters to "warm it up" a bit:
The first shot isn't bad, but you can see the issue with the colours when compared with the second shot.
As for something like HDR, it's a great thing to have to get a full exposure range. That same day, my sister was doing some sidewalk art for a local art group. Here's a work in progress of her chalk art:
This is with absolutely no post production (i.e. editing after the shot was taken). You can see the rich colour, deep blacks, and good highlights.
All in all, the shooter on the RAZR is pretty decent for a modern smartphone camera, but it does have a few quirks. However, with a very little bit of work (a little post production to get the colours right and/or use of an app like HDR Camera+ for shots of non-active things) it takes some really nice shots. I'm very happy with it.
