Unbelievable how slow this camera is...
Makes it almost unusable, especially with moving objects.

Is it just me?

This camera has literally made me want to throw the phone against a wall.
What makes it worst is the results are the same with every camera application.
It has to be hardware.

I'm thinking I should've fixed my DROID DNA.
Support Your Local Android Developer. That stuff* is HARD!

Taking pictures of moving objects is painful to say the least. It makes you wonder how they were able to get those pictures on their commercial...

I would of thought with optical stabilization that moving objects picture taking would be improved.

Optical Stabilization has nothing to do with that. It has to do with "shake" caused by handholding the camera. OIS has nothing to do with moving objects. That's shutter speed.

I would say the slowness of the camera is my biggest/only? gripe of the entire phone. This should get fixed soon, but we need to put the word out to them that this is a major concern of its users.

Taking pictures of the kids is ridiculously hard!!!! I have to put it on time shot so it takes multiple shots
