All of the phones I have ever owned, including my iPhone, seem to have the camera added as an afterthought. The camera on most phones is junk that won’t take a decent picture, especially in low light. The crap camera is my biggest complaint on my iPhone.
Samsung has taken a different route with its new Pixon 12 camera phone. The camera is the big draw for the device with 12-megapixels of resolution and a full touchscreen. The camera has autofocus and the user can touch the touchscreen to tell the camera where to focus in the shot they frame up.
