Joseph Mama: I guess it is a small improvement, but 1/2.3 vs 1/3 isn't THAT big of a gain. It also has no optical zoom and more importantly no image stabilization.

On phones, using the Shutter key is a LOSER. It pretty much guarantees a lousy picture. Phones are just too flimsy and light. Instead you hold it steady and tap the screen. The slight delay while it focuses on that point gives it time to dampen out the vibration from tapping.

Perhaps a little late ....
I have a Sony Ericsson Arc S with a shutter button that is fairly stiff, but have been able to get some fairly good shots once I recognised the limitation and worked with it.
....on the issue of half press .... Samsung have addressed it quite well with their "press-and-hold" to focus feature - once focused, release to take the shot.
...I still prefer the dedicated Shutter button though.

...at what point did the rodent board the Anas Plasticus? Things don't look too stormy unless there was maybe a lot of thunder that we can't hear....

Browsing thru a catalog of photo's, I would not have stopped at this one if I was looking for something soft ....
I must applaud your challenge to my interpretation with your soft lines, curves, and light.
A great shot
