    Hello all, didn't think I wanted to do it. But I am very impressed with my Nexus..battery and camera is the only Achilles heels to the Nexus.
    But the SCREEN and ROMS are balls to the walls!!! :) :) :) :hail::icon_ banana:DancingNexusdancedroid

    Picture doesn't look as sharp and had tons of blurry pictures. Tired multiple camera apps and found one that looks decent enough. The RAZR wasn't great, but slightly better.

    Make sure you are tapping the screen to focus before the shot (camera). And get the extended battery. Boom, good to go! :biggrin:

    Congrats on making the switch!

    I find that if you do what tgyberg suggested it takes pretty decent pictures, at leat IMO it does.

    Yup, gotta tap to focus that image. Makes a world of difference instead of just aiming and shooting. The camera has far exceeded my expectations. Lowlight and indoors it's alright, outside in the sunlight, it looks as good as any other camera on a phone imo.

    Yes. This is also a basic feature on many smartphones. It allows the camera to focus on the spot you tap on
