Hype? LOL. It's a fact, not an opinion. And contrary to your assumption, I do understand the the MP vs. sensor size issue. But simply because 5MP maxes out the sensor on the GNex's camera doesn't mean that 8MP on an appropriate-sized sensor wouldn't take better pictures in a well-lit area - it is likely that it would. Do you think that, in a well-lit environment, the GNex's camera would still take a better picture than the 8MP camera on my HTC Incredible?
