    The one thing i would never do is listen a apple fanboys opinoin on anything not apple. You can make other phones pics look bad by moving on purpose and useing a tripod for ur iphone and so fourth.

    The X has a mechanical shutter and the i4 is electronic, maybe that has something to do with it.

    I think it depends on "how you hold it". :icon_ banana:

    the Droid X pics look terrible compared to the iphone4 in this set. iphone pics appear to be much sharper.

    Yikes! Looks like more of the same. Man they really made a big deal about how great this camera is, and so far it doesnt really look that way. Perhaps, like bgr said, it is just an issue with the shutter button being too stiff. We shall see.

    It may not matter to me anyway, I was hoping to get the x with an early annual upgrade, but I may not be able to do that after all.

    I have to admit though, some of the iphone shots I have seen have been so oversaturated that they hurt my eyes. Like the iphone4 sunlight photo of the tomatoes. Completely unrealistic.

    i dont think its the saturation, saturation looks fine to me for the iphone. some are a bit contrasty though. nonetheless, iphone4 'seems' to take much sharper pics

    Really? The red of the tomato, and the blue of the bowl look completely overblown to me. Not that it is really a big deal. Saturation/contrast are easy fixes.

    Between the camera softness, and the bootloader issue, I am afraid this phone may turn into a turd. This makes me a sad panda. Step your game up moto.

    Is this really a shocker considering the camera on the Droid? Let's face it, Motorola leaves a lot to be desired in this area.

    how is it the newest 'super phone' has the worst camera out of all the high end android phones released since the first droid? something tells me moto may be trying to do too much with their mobile line up right now and is starting to drop the ball. the droid 2 might just end up being a better overall phone since they're just refining an already good phone in the original droid and it has the same processing power as the x plus vanilla android.

    the more we hear about this phone, the more the luster starts to wear off. the camera, the laggy ui, the restricted hdmi out...makes me wonder what else is going to be disappointing once the droid x finally hits the hands of users.

    I like how they designed the phone around the camera and made that bump like that was the highlight of the phone
