Who needs LED Flash?
I had an LED flash on two blackberrys, and it always made my low-light pictures look grainy and red.
The captivate camera without flash takes MUCH better low-light shots, no red-shift, plus incandescent lighting shows up clearer.
I'm glad there's no LED flash... in fact this phone takes better low-light pictures than my wife's new iPhone4, which now has an LED flash.

My only real issue with the camera is the location of the lens, I have a hard time keeping my finger out of the way, and it is slippery to hold while I wait for cases to become available, that makes me nervous taking pictures. I think I want a lanyard for this phone, as I'd really like to use it for a camera as much as a 'phone'.

Okay, so you just about have to be on top of the subject in order for the LED flash to do much good.
I always got complaints when using the LED flash as well. It would turn on so you could see the shot on the screen, then it would turn off, then flash when you took the picture.
And the result was always the subject groaning about how he/she has been blinded, and I still get a grainy, red-shift blurry picture.

I agree, my LED flash on my last phone was most useful as a flashlight. I think it is best to adjust the photos later in an editor than worry too much about a flash, keeping them from blurring too seems most important to me. That can't really be fixed later.
