3 D will be interesting and all but actual clarity, resolution etc etc will not improve I assume given the 5 megapixels?
Thanks

That's not a safe assumption. MP don't necessarily correlate with picture quality, at least not MP alone. Look at other phones with 5mp cameras that take better pics (iPhone, epic). HTC claimed to have improved the camera despite the lower resolution ...

MP has nothing to do with quality. MP is strictly a rating to measure resolution. For the average user MP only matters if you wish to crop out a small portion of your picture. Otherwise anything over 5+ isn't a big deal, in my opinion at least

Considering the phone is being featured as a camera phone I sure hope they improved the quality.

Its all about the CMOS sensor. Trust me, 5 MP is more than enough. You could easily blow up a well taken 5mp picture to a 5x7 or 8x10. If you need to do an immense amount of cropping...MP might come in handy but thats about it. Plus...a higher MP photo typically takes up a lot more space.

I really want to see them do some interesting things with the camera, like quick shot mode using both cameras or HDR etc.

This is all great to hear. I've come to use my camera a lot with my Evo for various things.
Look forward to the dedicated button too!
