I'm trying to decide on my next smart phone purchase. The Razr Maxx is at the top the list but I'm concerned about the Camera's picture quality. My wifes Iphone Iphone 4s takes great pictures. Do the available apps improve the picture quality of the Razr Maxx?

The stock camera app sucks as it's hard to stabilize the picture. I use the camera360 app and it has solved that problem.

I'm going to try camera 360 or something. The Maxx does take too long to focus. If I wait for focus & have good light, then i can get a very good pic; however, overall, the camera isnt great, IMO. Not horrible, but iphone it is not.

The camera on the RAZR/MAXX isn't a terrible camera in the slightest. It's not at the top of the line with the 4S, but it's far from the bottom. Unless nothing else matters in a smartphone to you for your uses besides having the top of the line camera, don't let the camera be the thing that holds you back from getting the MAXX. It does far too much right to let that be the thing that prevents you from getting it. I had a 4S for five months, and I now have a MAXX. Having used both extensively, on a scale of 1 to 10, if someone considers the camera on the 4S to be a 10, I'd say the RAZR is a solid 8 to 8.5 depending on the situation. It's definitely a more than capable shooter.

If you're on Verizon, and the camera really is the deciding factory for you, I'd rank the top five currently available phones like this (based off of the ones I've used):

1) iPhone 4S
2) HTC Rezound
3) Droid Charge
4) RAZR/RAZR MAXX

5) Galaxy Nexus (coming in at a distant fifth place)

Well I just switched to the iphone 4s specifically because of the camera. I still prefer android, and the luke warm camera reviews on most Motorola phones, kept me from going with the Maxx. If Apple can make a smartphone with a great camera, why can't android!

Clearly you haven't had a recent higher end HTC phone or some of Samsung's top of the line phones, because they have cameras that rival the 4S. And both are also releasing phones with even better cameras now or in the near future. It's no fault of Android, it's all on the individual manufacturers. For whatever reason, Motorola hasn't decided to put the effort into their cameras that others have, but the RAZR/MAXX has the best Moto camera to date.
