    Did you that you can drag the autofocus box around to any place on the screen, so that you can focus on the object that you want in focus and not the background?

    This is my favorite tip so far. I didn't know you could do that. I thought a simple tap on the screen where you want to focus would have been a better idea by moto but this will totally do!

    Thank you again!

    I have done this and haven't noticed any better image focus quality on my shots. How about everyone else?

    I just checked my girl's D2...her phone does it too.
    How could this have eluded so many for so long?

    I was referring to the fact that no one had reported it for the BIONIC.

    I never had a Droid X. Nor D2, D3, D2 global, R2D2, etc. I came from plain jane vanilla DROID to this phone.

    And so are a lot of other people.

    You guys never knew that? lmao I've known that since the beginning but assumed that everyone else knew about that feature.

    Because silly head:

    Some of us that had Droid X's should remember this, or remember to try it after owning a Droid X. I remember the Droid X picture threads and the Droid X vs. Incredible picture threads from last year. You posted some nice pics in there too, Vihzel.

    I wonder do Bionic owners know where the 3 mic idea came from....;)
