@magman: There is a distinct pop/click as the camera activates. I think I speak for most people who notice it that if the camera actually performed better (i.e. took a picture when you tapped/pressed the button, saved ALL photos/videos, etc.) I think the pop/click would not really matter. Overall, I really liked the camera on my Droid X better. This one, as far as photo quality, seems to be more like a "1995 webcam". No matter what the resolution of the camera, if the color and quality are not there, the camera is crap. This one is crap. The worst part of this is that on the DX2 they removed the physical camera shutter button. I don't use my camera half as much as I used to. And, it's a deal-breaker for me. Touch-screen shutter buttons are a waste. The designer who pushed that through the system should be ... well, I would fire them on the spot... and then push them down a stairwell.
