    Of course it does - they moved all that silly antenna stuff out of the way of the camera sensor so they'd have camera bragging rights. ;)

    ... too bad about the reception thing though. ;)

    The only one that looks noticeably bad to me, is the third one down from the top.

    yeah, typical motorola. they havent been able to build a decent camera, in, well forever. even the HD video recording on the X is pitiful.

    in those threads i talked about, i even showed a link going into details about the iphone's camera. apple really took their time with this one. its has a superior image sensor which translates into much better pics overall. motorola was trying to cut costs and corners as usual.

    remember that it is a phone and not a camera if you want good pics you should get a camera and those pics look a whole lot better than the droid

    My X is taking awesome pictures! Make sure your software version is .516 instead of .514.

    I don't know if they're using the same camera but the Droid X is 8mp. And for a 5mp iPhone4 to take better pictures than an 8mp camera I think it has something to do with the quality of the sensor.

    megapixels means nothing when it comes to image quality. at 3mp, that's still enough to provide a high resolution image that will fill a standard computer screen. motorola using an 8mp camera was pure marketing, since theyre camera is garbage to begin with

    People may not like the answer to that but as I mentioned in another thread, I just bought my Droid X (at full price) specifically interested in how the camera compares to my Incredible.

    So far - and I have .516 - the Incredible has less "shutter" lag and takes sharper pictures both indoors and out at all resolutions.

    I will give it a few more days but photos are important to me (as they are to most parents of little kids) and I always carry my phone while the camera is often forgotten home.

    I agree I had the nexus one before which is just like the incredible and the pics came out really nice and the lag was no where near the Droid Xs
