    They look pretty good in the sample shots I've seen.... Did you see Phil's review here? Couple pretty amazing shots in there imho.

    Some of those stills from Phills review look pretty good but I clicked to zoom in and they are indeed blurry to me.

    Take for example, the shot of Phills little girl in the orange pumpkin suit, looks pretty darn crystal clear....as a small picture, then I clicked and zoomed in to what the picture actually looks like and every bit of the photo is blurry.

    I guess that all depends on what your comparing it to. It is just a phone camera. and a $350 phone at that.

    What phone cameras do take suitable pictures? serious question. I personally don't have experience with devices that are taking pics that are drastically better than what I've seen from the reviews on this phone. Not saying there arn't just wondering what i can look at to make a comparison.

    I would have to agree. Something to think about those particular videos seem to be shot in not optimal light. That could effect the quality a bit couldn't it?

    Not really trying to compare it to anything more than a sharp clarity picture, LG put a lot of R&D behind this phone and camera too for it to come out all blurry and the front facing camera to be much better.
    What are u comparing this camera to? Are u going to be blowing the pics taken with ur phone to 8'x10' or what? These photos/videos are perfectly acceptable for a phone. Ur not going to replace a dslr with a phone sorry

    Welcome to cell phone cameras? I don't know what you want to hear. It sounds like you expect every camera to have extreme sharpness. Its not gonna happen.

    At some point you've got to realize its an 8MP cellphone camera with a sensor only a few mm across. How much do you really expect to zoom in? The small number of pixels alone will create "blurry" pictures when you zoom in... You said yourself the photos look fine at normal zoom levels, and that's what the goal of these cameras is. They're not meant to be taking pictures and blown up or printed at large sizes.

    I think your expectations are too high here. Want big pictures you can zoom in on? Buy a real camera.

    Is it an iPhone 4s or 5 competitor, probably not as little is, but the best shots I have seen lead me to believe it is decent (which has not been the case with previous Nexus devices).
    It a camera on a cell phone, you point it at things and push a button.

    I did read that the GS3 had better pics as well as the HTC OneX. And bare in mind, this is a premium phone, since we are getting at a good price doesn't mean they skimp out on quality hardware, some people are going to end up paying over $600 for this phone in some parts of the World.......and Yes I am comparing it to GS3, HTC OneX+ and Iphone 5.
    GS3 does not even compare with the iPhone 5.

    good luck everyone trying to have a reasonable conversation about this. imo its not fualty, its not a problem again thats my opinion. if you want an s3 get one dude. this takes reasonable pics for a phone camera. and it cost half as much. im not trying to defend google or any nonsense like that i just don't understand what you expect.

    Im sorry but they looked clear to me after I clicked on them. I dont know but they looked fine, especially the link you supplied it looked crystal clear.

    Not bashing you, just stating that I disagree :-)

    It's quite amazing how much people nitpick. There are probably some people in the world that have issues with those 5 cent Double Bubble gums...

    I think folks might be mistaking "out of focus" with resolution.
