Believe it or not my 4 year old phone (also with a 5 mega pixel camera) took better photos simply because it had auto-focus.

The flash doesn't bother me too much, because they drain the battery and usually aren't much good on phones anyway. But the lack of auto focus makes it useless for anything other than uploading photos to Facebook. You can't even photograph close up items, and as per this thread can't scan barcodes easily.
