I have owned the Dare and then the Pearl. I just got the Storm last week. I was very impressed with the camera feature on the Dare and was satisfied enough with it to quit caring around my big camera (except for a few events). Of course, the Pearl's camera was terrible. I was expecting the camera on the Storm to at least be equal to the Dare and am VERY unhappy with it. An update SOON would be much appreciated. I didn't buy the phone FOR the camera, but I did buy it so I can have an all-in-one package.
