    Doesn't seem great in what standard? For a cell phone, I'd say those are excellent.

    *seems like SOMEONE thought 8mp meant it would be like their point and shoot*

    Yeah, blurry. Seems like the autofocus just sucks.

    It is. You have to compare it to other phones though.

    It's not about megapixels but quality of lens etc. Nokia had years ago N95 with Carl Zeiss lens and cam was 5 megapixels and quality was excellent. High megapixel number only sounds impressive until you look at quality of the lens etc.

    To everybody saying it sucks for a cell phone, you're doing it wrong.

    First, for a cell phone, those aren't that bad of quality.

    Next, what you're really running into is the automatic adjustment of the ISO for darker images. If you take a picture in full light, you'll see an amazingly clear image. If you want to get a less grainy picture in darker settings, go into your settings in your camera and change the ISO setting from Auto to a low number ISO. Keep in mind, the lower the ISO, the less light you're going to see in the image. If you're in a dark area and use ISO 100, you'll get a pitch black picture.

    It's mostly here about the lens and your sensor size (and some internal workings). Forget about Megapixels.

    If you want a high quality image in darker light (and keep in mind, just because you see huge lights in a stadium doesn't mean it's well lit for a picture in the area you're taking!), you end up in the realm of digital photography. I have equipment that will take amazing pictures in the same setting you have there, but it cost over $2000 and on the fastest lens has a lens opening bigger than the Evo :).

    All in all, I'd be happy with what you're seeing, but feel free to tweak the settings if you want some better performance.

    Adding in after the fact: I don't know if the Evo has a fixed Shutter Speed or not, but the other important thing to consider is that as the phone needs to gather more light, you're going to have a slower shutter speed, normally (for auto adjustments). Slower shutter speeds mean blurry images. Really low shutter speeds will give you a blurry image if you even breathe. This is the normal working of a camera.

    Wow, those pics look great. Now all I need to do is shrink you down to a manageable size so I can stick you in my pocket for whenever I need to take a picture.

    Lol thanks brian. I showed her the comment. She giggled and possibly blushed. She's put up with a lot from me over this phone.

    Aw love her hair. I'm dying my hair blonde as well lol
    But the ops pix and his pix look great.

    I just took some pix for my Facebook just a few moments ago and uploaded them and my friends don't believe that they are taken on a camera phone. Evo has good quality in my opinion

    This photo is absolutely ridiculous. The rays of light piercing the clouds is especially awe-inspiring.

    When I take pictures in dark areas using the flash people seem to glow. I think its because the flash doesnt turn on long enough and thus the camera is still adjusting to the light. Any ideas or settings that will remedy this?
