1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

So, about that camera?

    Please, please, please post sample pictures, links to flickr of sample pictures, etc.

    I'm currently sitting on a lemon of a Droid Bionic. 4G completely stopped working for me. Monday is my 30th day for return potential at Radio Shack and I'm at a complete loss as to whether I should swap for a RAZR tomorrow or return tomorrow and grab a Rezound on Monday.

    I like what I've heard about the Rezound camera and the recent HTC cameras. That said, the videos I've seen show a rather slow response between shots. That's a deal breaker since my primary subject is my two year old son. That's the other plus for the RAZR, is that the thing will be nearly indestructible in his hands. That said, my experience with the Bionic's camera has been miserable, even using other camera apps like Camera Zoom FX.

    SO...please, please, pretty please, post pictures and your opinions on the camera in the RAZR.

    Thanks in advance!

    Take my experience with a grain of salt. I moved from the Droid 1 to the Razr. My biggest gripe with the Droid 1 was the camera. The camera in the Razr is 1000x better than the Droid 1 camera. It works as I would expect a camera should. Without flash the camera is very quick to snap the picture. With flash, there is a slight delay. However, the image with flash is not blurred even if the object is moving. Here are 3 quick picks that I snapped of my pugs. The one just had eye surgery, hence the need for the cone. The one with cone is without flash, the other two are with flash. I have not changed any settings since I powered up the phone earlier today. Let me know if there is something in particular you are looking for.

    If you want a fast camera get the Galaxy Nexus.

    Those were some pretty good pics. I could even see the name of the dog. Marley is it? I did have the bionic and did take it back because of the camera and went back to my Thunderbolt. I'm picking up the Razr tomorrow and hope to be satisfied.

    Does the Nexus snap photos with "zero lag" even with the flash on auto? Who knows?

    As far as those pictures, adm, it shows the obvious deficiencies of the Droid RAZR camera. First of all, they came out all wrinkled! And forget red-eye, that's close-eyed. Just kidding, very cute.

    Too much truth in one statement.

    Very close. Barley. Not bad for just aiming and pointing. Just glad my phone number wasn't visible...

    My best advice for you is wait out the extra week or two or whatever it is for the galaxy nexus... i had the droid charge and it was all around amazing as far as screen and camera goes in daylight or at night time i could take flawless pictures, if you look at pictures from the bionic as well as the razr that are taken at night you can clearly see if you take them with the flash you will get very washed out pictures with a blueish or pale white tint from the led flash. I am selling my bionic to get the nexus when it comes out because nothing beats the quality of samsungs screens and cameras in my opinion. Htc is also great but however with HTC you suffer with battery life severely and the rezound will have sense overlayed on top of android 2.3.4 which you may or may not like but ICS is a huge plus and the camera on the nexus is incredibly fast as well.. overall being that you are going to take loads of pictures of your two year old son i would recommend holding out for the nexus because it will most definitely be worth the wait.

    How so confident? What if it has poor battery life, severe bugs, or just looks like an ugly piece of cheap plastic?

    wow, thanks!

    adm, great photos and subject! thanks so much for the quick and useful response.

    i'm still on the fence, but it looks like the razr is a definite improvement over the bionic. amazon's $111.11 will be an incredible temptation tomorrow!

    not sure if i'll be able to hold out for the nexus. i have severe gadget lust. i switched from iPhone to android over the summer. while i can't fathom going back, the one thing i did like is knowing that a better iPhone is always a year away. with android phones, i fear i'll be drooling for more every couple weeks :(
