It has been said that all Droids click when starting the camera, but the autofocus issue is related to a software bug.
No camera clicking here. But the camera sucks as much as the reviews say they do. If you have a still subject then you are okay. However, if you want to capture your kid doing something for the first time forget it. Takes too long for the thing to get going and focus.
I asked the Verizon guy to check it and he looked at me funny. I didn't hear clicking in the store but it was loud.
