    Yeah, i got this phone used off of craigslist it's only 2 years old if that, but i didn't get it from the store so i'm kind of lost on how to fix things with it. The camera, as we all know, is 5mp... but my pictures look TERRIBLE. They are blurry, and grainy, and it just looks so bad. (My Ally took more high-def pics than this.) I went through the settings made sure it was on 5mp, made sure the exposure was neutral and everything else i could think of. Nothing is helping, any suggestions? I really hope someone can help, because i love taking pictures and this quality is just flat out depressing.

    Are you zooming in? Are you looking at the pics on the phone or pc? They always seem to be grainy on the phone but fine on the pc.

    if its abnormal quality, a hard reset may help. the Droid's don't have the best pic quality. you can always post some pics for people to compare.

    I have the same problem but I think my pics look worse. My old D1 took much better pics for sure.

    lol. well that would probably be a cute picture if it wasn't so blurry! I would try a factory reset of the phone first. You'd be suprised what that fixes. besides, verizon will make you do it before they replace it anyhow. Auto focus is on right?

    Not to sound like a smartass, but did you clean the lens?

    Cute pic though, even blurry. I forget to clean the lens sometimes and it makes a huge difference.

    I would have said that too, but there's no way that from face or hand grease! that would be hair spray on the lens! and I don't think she's doing that lol. Factory reset it. only way to know if its hardware of software.

    My pics look like that too! Nothing I try works and I have done a factory reset too. I notice its scratched on the corner of the camera side (I also got it on craigslist) so im betting it was dropped. I have tried diff camera apps ect. Same result. Most phones I've had have a second where u can see the camera auto focus before takin the pic b ut this one doesn't seemto do that. Im thinking im better off with a diff phone cuz I use my camera a lot
