Thanks, nthanh61! It's funny - the amount of light was too high for the last two pics to shoot at that high of an ISO setting. The 400 one is actually 225 and the 800 one is actually 192. (and they had exposure times of 1/10000th of a second)
Any chance at re-shooting the last two indoors or something, (some other item to shoot is fine) so we can judge the 400/800 ISO settings?
These pictures were taken with my Droid X a few weeks ago indoor and they look fine. However I have others that were grainy. Correction, the first one was outdoor on a sunny day.

The photos posted in this thread definitely suggest the lens on the DX is soft and probably uncoated. Would be interesting to run it through these paces:
Introduction: Lens Reviews: Glossary: Learn: Digital Photography Review
In addition, the colors lack punch (and by punch I don't mean extreme oversaturation, but strength and purity), which may be a consequence of the CCD, or simply of the lens washing out the photo.
nthanh61's photos in his last post on this page are actually somewhat decent, but overall, this camera seems to be a big disappointment. All other photo and video samples looks terrible.
And for people looking so forward to this phone for features such as the camera for one, that is depressing :/
I wish somebody could ask the Motorola guys from that conference why the cam is actually such **** lol.
C'mon, they gotta stop advertising the camera as being so great with 8 mp when it really sucks and the mp doesn't even really matter lol. You would think with this new flagship phone, they would really put the time and effort and hardware into each and every little bit of the phone, but I think we can confirm that they missed it with the cam for sure.
