I agree. I own the 710 and my wife has the 6000 and I will agree that in low light or when viewing pix on the phone that quality suffers. However when viewed in high quality on a computer monitor the 710 does actually win for clarity. The bluetooth was advertised primarily by Motorola or by word of mouth before the actual release. I'm not making excuses but responding to this thread. Neither of these "problems" need the atention asked for at the start of this thread. The phone was placed on hold due to a defect where the camera lens is about 5 degrees to the left

Umm.. You must not be accustomed to the standard cycle of Eagerly Anticipated Hardware.

The first thing to remember that in the community that's Eagerly Anticipating the Hardware, 95% of the people are under the age of 12, if not physically, mentally. About 15% of the community claims to be from the company that's offering said Hardware and/or has some sort of "in" with them. At most, 1% of the community really is working from said company and they usually don't post but, I imagine, are snickering whenever they read forums.

There's usually at least some fiscal idiots, who either spend far too much money to get the hardware really early, or replace hardware every few months. There's also usually some folks who act like they are fiscal idiots but who make stuff up.

In general, a lot of folks are making stuff up. It's really amusing because they are generally not too creative when they do. More than once, I posted about the theoretical possibility of something happening. Only after I posted did anybody start blathering about that being What Was Going To Happen.

Now, there's a standard cycle at play.

First, there's the eager anticipation where *everybody* wants it.
Then, people start to hear more information and some percentage of the community complains about how it's going to suck whereas everybody else maintains it's going to be great. Oh yeah, and people who claim that some other Eagerly Anticipated Hardware is even better, but insist on throwing their two cents in elsewhere instead of hanging out with the people who are eagerly anticipating *that* piece of hardware.
Then, the "insider information" starts, most of which is wrong, but sometimes folks start to believe.
Then, people start to argue about the release date.
Then the hardware comes out. Some of the people who maintain that it's going to suck buy it anyways and then complain about how much it sucks, keep it past the return period, and complain some more. It's at this point when people start talking about lawsuits, none of which ever actually come to fruition. Some people have their product and find new and interesting things to do with it or, at the very least, take it apart and post pictures of the inards. And the large percentage of the community leaves in happy bliss with their new piece of hardware.
Which therefore leaves the hackers, who are trying to do something interesting, and the people who continue to whine. And a few people who have some questions about stuff because they purchased it late.
