    Megapixels mean squat. Megapixels only really matter if you are going to blow the picture up.

    The only reason why the 8mp would look better is due to the 8mp camera having smaller pixels, hence having seemingly smaller amounts of luminance noise. The 8mp cameras on the moto are pretty well known to have pretty bad cameras. If you want a phone with a really good camera go for a rezound. It might not have 0 lag(though is almost kept up with my bro's i phone), it takes great pics and is pretty dam good in low light(especially in HDR mode, which i REALLY liked). Is has a pretty good BSI sensor in it and a F2.4 lens.
    From what ive been seeing on the nexus's camera is that they are using WAY to much noise reduction. I would prefer a noisy pic over something that looks like a water painting. I wish you could pick the ISO it is using....


    ALSO the 0 lag is crap.....it has to focus first....if it takes the pic right away i know im about to get an out of focus pic....

    Now megapixels affect picture quality in low light. I've heard it all.

    Ummmmm....they do.....why do you think canon just went from 21MP on the 1Dsmk3 to 18MP on 1DX.....more pixels does not mean better....at all....ever...normally

    More pixels can be great at base ISO(iso100 or what not) and give you large amount of detail. but once you bump the iso up, you get more noise. The 5mp camera SHOULD be better then what is is.....read my post above.

    I know that. The OP is sipping the megapixel kool aid, saying that more megapixels gives you better image quality in low light. That's total garbage. Low light performance is all about the sensor. Megapixels is all people focus on. Can you imagine if car enthusiasts only cared about horsepower and nothing else? That's what it's like when you guys keep ranting about MPs.

    You could be a ricer and care about everything except horsepower. :happy3:


    The camera is the nexus is... meh, at best. Everyones complains about the razr's camera but from the pictures I've seen it take, its really not bad at all. If you want a nice camera, the Rezound is your best choice. If you want -the- best camera installed on a phone, switch to Sprint and get the Epic Touch 4g.

    The biggest reason you should want a nexus compared to a razr is it's screen. Other then that they are pretty much similar hardware wise. If you like to root and rom your phones then the nexus is the obvious choice. Its already seen more development then the razr and rezound which have been out months before the gnex. The nexus has its own issues though, so I'd wait until they are fixed. You don't seem like the type who would take them in stride.

    Let me ask what I think may have been one of his questions :

    When the razr gets ics, will it then have a 0 lag camera? Like, is the 0 lag a ics feature or a samsung feature.?

    My RAZR has zero camera lag right now after the latest update. I doubt it will be any faster when ICS is pushed our way.

    IMO, all of these cell phone cameras are pretty crappy. If all you want is a snap of your friends at a well-lit party to put on Facebook, any of the newer phones should work just fine. A landscape shot in daylight, fine again. But anything else... I'll continue to carry my DSLR. From what I've read online, the camera in the iPone is the equivalent of a 30 mm f/22 lens in a real camera. No way you get quality pics indoors at f/22. This is low-end point-and-shoot range. A good Canon or Nikon point-and-shoot is far superior to a cell phone camera. And if you're willing to step up to a DSLR...

    if the razr indeed gets ICS (don't count on moto for software updates), it''ll surely be a half assed ICS experience.

    (zero shutter lag has nothing to do with ICS, btw)

    Except Motorola is considered one of the best at providing OS updates.

    ICS will likely be the same aside from bloatware and Motorola widgets now that they have dropped MOTOBLUR.

    I'm not trying to favor one phone over the other (I will not be getting either but I would not mind a Galaxy Nexus in a RAZR case). I just have a profound hatred for false truisms.

    as a bionic owner since the day of release, I have to strongly disagree with that.


    no phone made for gingerbread is going to give you an optimal ics experience.

    I believe the Bionic is an exception. Verizon and Motorola have clearly been trying to forget the Bionic in favor of the RAZR. I think that's wrong of them but it's true.

    And again with the false truisms? Hardware is not software specific unless the software handles processing power fundamentally different.(favoring one chipset over another) (i.e. Most video games on a computer with i7).

    The main difference between the RAZR and Nexus is the OMAP4460 which is the same dual core processor (Cortex A9) clocked at 1.5 instead of 1.2. And the GPU clocked at 384 instead of 304.

    The Nexus is faster but the hardware does not preclude the RAZR from being optimal ICS. It may preclude it from loading as fast as the Nexus on something that needs the full processing power but nothing else.

    I'm trying to figure out if this is a Razr question posted in the wrong forum or just another one of those megapixel discussions that have been done to death.

    Either way, if the camera is the most important thing then you won't be buying the Nexus or the Razr. If ICS is important then there's only one place to go right now.

    Frankly the zero lag camera is a gimmick. I wish they gave the option to force the camera not to take a picture until it is focused. What is the point of taking out of focus photos? I realize that the whole zero shutter lag thing is based around the idea that this camera has continuous autofocus, but in practice it just doesn't work. I wound up getting the ZOOM EX camera app which consistanty gives me significantly better pictures especially if I use the shake detection shutter delay function.

    You know, I'm not sure where to move this thread, lol. I think OP is still in limbo about choosing between the razr and nexus but it is about the razr so maybe I should move it there.

    Edit..moved thread

    again with the "false truisms"? LOL

    processor speeds make no difference if you have bad software and skins causing lag as with most all android phones, except for there nexus. you don't have top root the nexus to eliminate lag ;)


    also, if you believe "the bionic is the exception", you're sadly mistaken. you must not be aware of the fact that Moto pulled the update for ALL it's previous 3g android phones a day or two after release due to major issues. now that's a "false truism". lmao

    it's a far more usefull gimmick than the razr's kevlar "protection" and "splash proof" nonsense.


    my GN camera works great. best phone camera i've ever had :D
