Getting super grainy pics off their Bold?

I've got it set to automatic, mid size and super fine but they all come out really grainy!

Anyone?

Welcome to a plastic lens on a cell phone world. To be honest they should not be that bad but they are crappy. A digital camera picture is only as good as its weakest link usually the lenses or CCD chip. I have attached some pictures i just took with my Bold and they suck to be honest. It is an outdoor camera for sure or you have to have great lighting.

It's a chunk of pyrite, it looks like gold but it's not even close. An old colleague gave it to me when I was starting my IT career and said "Every time something looks and feel like it should, remember that it's not always as it first seems" in other words don't be an idiot and do more then just assume by first impression

What I don't get is that on my 8310 they were pretty good!!

Wouldn't they put at least the same, if not better, camera in the Bold??

I have it set to automatic and each one is at the different size Large Medium Small. I do have the flash on for them. Well compare those other photos to this one from a real point and shoot camera night and day difference to me.
