    Went to a Verizon store today to check out the other phones... I think I've decided I can't give up my Nexus, even with its crappy camera. The Rezound just seemed so "cheap" compared to the Nexus! I really couldn't believe the difference. I've only had this phone for a few days now, but I think I'm hooked. With that being said, I did love how the Rezound would focus (and turn the box green) without having to click on the screen. I think clicking on the screen and then on the camera button is creating extra movement which leads to poor picture quality. I'm guessing that is something that can be fixed with a software upgrade etc?

    Cute dog! :) Are his eyes usually like that in the second picture or is it the camera? My camera does this same thing to my kids eyes... I'm guessing it can be fixed with editing though.

    While it's a camera on a phone, so I don't have much expectation for the quality, (it's the size of the sensor and the lenses stupid), I think the GNEX is a little lacking for what it should be. Saying that, I am betting it is fixable in software. I'm expecting that the 4.03 update will clear it up some.

    This would make me VERY happy if it was an easy fix with software. I hope you're right and that we see it soon!

    I haven't had a problem with the camera and am stoked with how well the panorama works. So much better than the og.

    Yes its a phone first, and it has a camera!

    Wow I think that's the first time i have seen call an HTC phone cheap feeling.. especially given that's normally the stigma given to Samsung phones. But I will admit the nexus is a great feeling phone and after having HTC for awhile and being used to sense it didn't feel "new" to me and the nexus with ICS fits that bill perfectly crappy indoor camera and all. :)

    So HTC and Apple have good cameras. The blueprint is out there so why cant every company nail a good camera?? Maybe on the next round of phones!

    That's what really bothers me about this camera issue. It's not like this is some brand new technology here. Cameras in cell phones have been around for YEARS. Comparable phones have much better cameras. Heck, even Samsung's own GSII has a much better camera, and how long has that thing been out?

    It almost seems as if they did it on purpose, so that not only one carrier has the 'best' device. AT&T gets the GSII that's bloated with an old OS and a great camera, Verizon gets the Nexus, unlocked, new OS, horrid camera.

    To me my pics look the same as my iPhone 4s. But even if it is slightly bad I'm sure there are apps to tweak them.

    Here's some more pictures that I took. Someone brought in cupcakes to work so I snapped a few pix since they look really good.

    These were taken under florescent light with no flash.
