Yep. We don't know if that's software (prerelease), software (compression artifacts), hardware (the iPhone lens is tops), or software/hardware (image stabilization at prerelease).

Point being, some of that may be addressable.

Also, three is a depth of field (focus range) trade-off with an f/2.0 setup. I can say with confidence that that's not an issue with mine.

Tell you what though - I'll decide on something that I can shoot as a reference, and show you the difference between standard HTC compression and and what happens without it. I think two pictures will be worth a thousand words on what I've been going on about.
