GO ANDROID!!!!

Awesome phone, congratulations! Always wanted one of these to replace my BB Torch. I can't help thinking that it may be a little too fragile for my use since I don't tend to "baby" my smartphone, throwing it about here and there in and out of my briefcase. Nevertheless, the huge screen (and resolution) is the real winner here. I might just get one for myself this coming XMas.

I fully agree with your observations. I came to the same conclusions after experimenting with my HTC Thunderbolt. I like having the phone camera available for emergencies, such as photographing the scene of an accident. It's also useful for reminding myself what a potential purchase item looks like.

I got that very same phone a month ago. It does a lot of things, but I'm still going to buy a camera app to expand its possibilities.

Very nice photo of your kid; I'd be curious to see how it prints as an 8x11.

Awesome phone. I love my HTC. Cameras on them aren't the greatest by any means but they do work well when it is the only camera you have. Enjoy your phone!

Did you also compare the iPhone in your decision?

I've got the iPhone 4 and it's so good I've sent some pics to press!!!

Yup, I agree with your approach on all counts. Several of my friends are well into their smartphone photography (iPhone or Android, depending), using Vignette and other suchlike tools for applying effects and styles.
The idea that a mobile (and I have the Desire HD myself, also 8-megapixel territory) might produce a finished work of art is still rather abhorrent, so I prefer to use mine for snapshots, "indications" of what's going off nearby that go onto mobypicture, and noting waypoints.

It very helpful for me and other people have a cellphone with camera, most especially with LED flash, because I like taking pictures every time I wake in the mornings. I'll be taking pictures with my pregnant wife, so if my baby comes out I'm going to show her my wonderful life we have. Praise GOD and thanks a lot!! Thanks for sharing!!
