It wasn't so long ago that if you wanted photos of your life, it meant carrying around a separate camera with you. Now we've gotten to a point where we have access to an awesome camera right in our pockets. Plenty of people depend on the camera on their smartphone as the primary way they get photos, and many of those photos end up being really, really good.

That's why in this week's poll we want to know how important the camera on your phone is. Does an awesome camera make a phone, or is it just a fringe benefit if you get access to an awesome camera? This week you've got 5 choices in our poll: "very important", "kind of important", "not particularly important", "not very important", "not important."

Is an awesome camera a must have feature, or do you overlook it? Drop us a comment and let us know how important the camera on your smartphone is!
