    That's the only thing keeping me from buying the 820 over the 920. Does the camera have a BSI sensor? How's lowlight performance on it? Or macro? Anyone used it yet?

    I posted a couple of quick pics in the link below. The kitty pic was with Macro, and the shot outside my window is using auto.

    att 820 owners, can you share your experience?

    I believe it has the same camera as the 900, so no BSI sensor.

    I just picked up the 820 and so far the photos are outstanding no issues here. I compared both the 920 and 820 and to be honest the photos were about the same. They are all sharp and crisp IMO but again its just a cell phone.

    I like the colors and wideangle. Sometimes i think the focus is not that well. They look sharp if in 70% but 100% seems blury....

    Some pictures made by me. Check out the gallery too. You can download the full screen pictures!

    Now I've worked out how much pressure the camera button requires to take a picture, I'm getting some ok shots:
