The improvement in image quality is quite noticeable. Especially for short distances (e.g. photographing printed materials or business cards).

Agreed. I often see photos of documents, prices tags, etc, that are badly out of focus. the users can't tell they're out of focus on the small screen, so they keep doing it.

AF fixes this problem, but I assume most phones won't give you any control over it, so we risk having some long distance photos spoiled by it focusing on the foreground occasionally.
