As posted before, I thought it was stupid/dumb/crazy/idiotic that the camera shutter must be activated on the screen. After all, one is supposed to hold a camera steady and not push it forward. So I've posted in androidforums and spoke also with three different Samsung Corp tech support agents. Everyone indicated: a) there is no button to take a picture :"because this is Android" and b) this feature is not customizable, and c) neither the Attain nor the Admire will take a picture unless you touch the proper place on the screen. W R O N G !! If one holds down the side button for one second, CLICK. A picture.
