    I'm satisfied with the camera in my MotoDroid, so I'm pretty sure the DX camera will be ok to me lol. Camera phones arent meant to replace high end digital cameras, they're just there to snap images when a camera isnt available.

    Naysayers

    Are people that are just upset that they got a Droid, But now they want the Droid X and cant have it so they try to discourage others from getting it by downplaying something they haven't even held in their hands...... And wont unless they are holding their friends...... Hahahahahahaha So Quit Hating fools

    I dont think thats the issue. I got the Droid on release day in November, and while I normally wouldnt have an upgrade available till November of this year, I have 2 lines set up which gives me the ability to upgrade every 6 months if there's a phone I want. I REALLY like the X, but now because of the encrypted bootloader I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to get the X tomorrow, or wait for the Samsung Fascinate later this summer, or maybe even just hold out to see what the next gen dual core LTE phones offer. I really think the X is a better phone than the Fascinate, but the Fascinate not having an encrypted bootloader might edge out the X in my opinion. Still undecided.

    I think the video and picture quality on the X is outstanding. It's definitely not able to replace a standalone device, but the video looks very clear and sharp and the pictures come out great as well. They're not perfect, but they're not garbage, and definitely better than my D1 did. The panoramic feature takes really nice pics too. I'm more than happy with the video/picture taking on this phone!

    I think the camera and video on the X are great. Definitely a step up from any other phone I've had. I wouldn't use it for family outings or anything really important, but for shooting clips and whatnot it's worked great so far.

    I switched from AT&T with the Blackberry Bold 9000 for it. Definitely an improvement. At least in my area there is absolutely NO speed comparison between the two companies' 3G. Verizon is to broadband as AT&T is to dial-up.

    Really? Where is your evidence. I think you're full of it. I think it's amazing and it is not a major concern for me at all.

    It seems that all internet forums are the same...If someone wants to post something negative about a product they feel the need to greatly exaggerate the negativity to make their point. Come on, "Awful"? Really? I don't yet have the phone, (On backorder) but I've seen a couple of demos in local stores and I don't think a reasonable person would say that anything about the camera is, "Awful". Certainly not when you compare it to other camera phones. There are none that I've ever seen that rival the quality of a decent stand-alone digital camera or camcorder in all categories. My daughter has a digital camera that I paid about $100 for. It's not what most people would consider a great camera, (Obviously) but it works quite well for everyday use. Many of the pics that I saw on the in-store Droid X looked as good as the ones taken on my daughter's camera. And the video looked pretty good too. I've had 3 Nikon cameras in my life so I know what excellent camera quality is. The Droid X won't replace a Nikon but from what I've seen it's quite good for a camera phone. Some people should really try to think about the adjectives they use in reviews before they post them. When they exaggerate like that it really hurts their credibility.

    Since we're stuck on the camera thing...

    ...I figured we might as well make it a more positive thread. First of all, no, there is not a camera on anyone's phone that is going to be better than higher end stand alones. The Droid X is a smartphone with a camera, not a camera with a smartphone. I would also say that the camera on the Droid X, IMO, is pretty decent. My outdoor/well lit photos come out pretty crispy. I would not say that about lower light situations (kind of fuzzy and not so crisp) though I haven't spent much time trying to learn how to take better pictures with my DX. But, given that the camera is not the main feature here, photographers should consider buying an actual camera and not rely so heavily on their phones for their art. ;)

    Also, there are some appealing looking apps out there that seem to add some quality to your smartphone's photographic capabilities. I have recently enjoyed taking photos with my DX because it DOES take decent pictures. Are they the best? Of course not, but, for a phone it must be up there with the best cameras on a phone! Seriously, how much better is any other phone's camera?! Now, I feel better.

    So, anyone have any success with some of those camera enhancing apps out there? If so, which ones do you like? I want to purchase one but I'd like to hear from the Droid community about this.

    1). I like the camera and the rest of the DX's features are AWESOME! 2).Speed is Super,3).phone sounds great and love the 4)voice to text feature, I'm able to use so many apps including Touchdown for outlook sync emails calendar, 5).Screen size is so much bigger than last 4 phones. Truly for me this is so much more than I expected from a droid phone!dancedroid
