    The camera is the one thing that puts me off my HD7. It's awful.

    Looking forward to seeing what Nokia's WP7 has to offer; they've always had decent cameras.
    I actually love the HD7 camera

    Zune, screen than camera.

    FFC is useless majority of the time...I haven't seen one person who actually uses it.

    It's the one thing compared to my girlfriend's HTC Desire HD that really doesn't compare well. When we both take pictures on days out, ect, there's a big different in quality.

    I voted other. My smartphone is a PMP first, portable PC second, and phone third. A good music/media experience is the most important factor for me. I love Zune for music, althought it lacks in the video department (video playlists please). Camera, NFC, etc aren't as important as media playback, a good web browsing expeirence, or easy email/social integration.

    I don't care too much about any of the poll options, but I would like to see more emphasis on the battery. It seems like battery tech is getting better, but instead of increasing battery life they just use the improved tech to make the battery smaller. Forget all the fancy hardware extras. I don't care if my phone is super thin, just give me a battery that lasts a long time without making the phone look like it's growing a tumor.

    I voted better camera but I'm very interested in nfc. Before I switched from android that was one of the things I was pretty pumped about since it seemed google at the time was in the fore-front of that market. I'd still like to see it but a better camera is more realistic for me than nfc. After all I don't even have 4G in my area yet.

    That's because carriers in the U.S. haven't added the feature yet. I used an Orange SIM card in Europe and the FFC worked great on a normal voice call.

    Looking at my 5000+ Skydrive photos, which were all from my WP, I have to say the camera is the most used and most important for me.

    Camera. The saying goes, the best camera is the one you have with you. The 8MP shooter on the Mozart is good, but the camera I had on the iPhone 4 was, for a phone, spectacular. In fact, I'd go as far as saying it was pretty good full stop and I took some amazing shots with it.

    Least important has to be front facing camera. Video calls just aren't catching on, no matter how much they're pushed.

    I agree about the ffc, even on wifi video chat sucks. And I think its more bragging rights than anything. Also I think nfc is overhyped.

    then buy a camera LOL
    ive said it before and ill say it again!! ..
    NO ONE SHOUL EVER COMPLAIN about a phone camera ( specially on smart phones they are all 5pm+ ) cameras on phones are 100% for casual users...!!!! unless they start making phones that are 5`` thick to fit proper Camera hardware in them....



    i would LOVE to see INFERRED or RF come back!! i use to love using my phones as a TV remote. specially in my guess room i dont have a remote :( lol
    This completely depends on what stage you are in your life. I never cared about a camera on a phone until I had kids. It's simply not possible to carry my digital camera 24/7 and there have been MANY amazing moments i've been able to capture using my phone camera. Regretfully, most of them, when trying to print, turn out LOUSY. But, I typically view those pics on my 52" LCD which always has a screen saver on or my tablet which has a screen saver or my little pictures smart tile.

    I do agree to some extent, you shouldn't expect miracles. But, there are some smartphones that take better pics than others. For me, its one of the primary features I look for. That being said, I keep hearing Nokia has the best photo sensors on the market. If that is true, I will be all over them when they come out.

    I have a Nokia N8 with the 12MP camera. The pictures are outstanding. There's a Nokia N8 photo group over at Flickr where they post their N8 photos: Flickr: Nokia N8 User Group

    Yep my next phone is either going to be a Sammy or Nokia. But the better camera will prevail over purty screen res.

    I just like a flash on the camera. Its finallly nice to be able to take photos with minimal lighting and they not look like a dim color blur.

    Actually you will not have to make a choice soon except in regard to how much money you are willing to spend and the OEM decision on making the technology available. Which means if they believe the market is there you'll get your chance to purchase. The question is with the advances in micro minimization and limited space within the housing is this the best use of the space? Do you want a PPC or a camera phone. Now if the OEM can allow apps to call the processor for multiple tasks the question become moot ? THE OP asks a very interesting question one of the best I've seen discussing phones:dry

    Begin Quote "Sony will commercialize "IU081F" and "IU105F2" compact auto-focus lens modules which include the two new "Exmor R" back-illuminated CMOS image sensors. These down-sized modules are suitable and efficient for mobile phones with relatively limited space and are equipped with high performance lens which maximize the image sensors' respective performances. "IU081F" is the industry's smallest and thinnest*1auto-focus lens module (W10.5 X D10.5 X H7.9mm) and is equipped with the 16.41 effective megapixel*2 CMOS image sensor. " End Quote
