It goes without saying that photos intended for the interweb are just fine too. The biggest problem with all camera phones for me is shutter lag so she’s got an app that purports to help but I think it just cripples the res. I also hate holding at arm’s length, it’s just the most rubbish way to take a photo. That’s why I think the ‘M’ is such a joke it’s got the worst two features of a camera phone and you can’t even make a call with it :P

I don't think holding at arms length is a rubbish way to take photos.  Live view is a very good way of taking landscape photos.  Also, it depends on the preference of the user.  It might not be for you but don't generalize.  A lot of users are fine with taking pictures using a live view.

Nah...I'll still take a Nokia N8 (my current phone) or a 808 Pureview instead of the Samsung...any day. Zeiss glass, large sensor, no Google crap, better build quality and battery life.

Primarily for the Zeiss glass. It's definitely noticable. I can shoot and print 11x14 prints that are pretty hard to tell from an average P&S. Now, when up against a 1Ds3 or H4D, then it just ain't fair...

Yup.  Nokia is better but I'm talking of the form factor which I like.  I hope somebody take notice of it though.  I just don't like the cellphone's form factor.

Yeh live view with a bleedin tripod!
I’m not generalising Jason, It’s my opinion. I struggle to think of a less stable way of taking a photograph. Oh wait standing on one leg whilst holding a camera at arms length… yip that would do it  ;D
