My wife's is a 2011 V6 EXL with navi. It's not a touch screen. This is one down side imo. I love her car but since I don't drive it that often i'm not that familiar with the stereo/navi and its a bit confusing for a car that is designed with keeping you're eyes on the road in mind. However it does have voice command for nearly anything you want the car to do.
I have no experience with the Camry and we didn't look at them since the wife wasn't interested in them. She wanted something a little sportier looking so the Camry just didn't do it for her.
Our Accord does have a bit of road noise but it does have the 17" wheels with lower profile tires which I think contributes to this.
A co-worker of mine picked the Camry over the Accord due to the road noise. But she also went with a 4 cylinder. Not sure how or if that makes a difference?
Someone mentioned earlier that the Camry felt more powerful. I haven't driven one but find this hard to believe since Toyota typically isn't known for being the fastest most powerful cars. I don't even know the specs of the Camry but our Accord will book it. Don't take this the wrong way, I'm not being a hater towards the Camry, they're both great cars. I just know I was pleasantly surprised at the power of the Accord, just like the Camry, I've always thought of them both as gas saving family cars.
Ultimately test drive them both and as others have said, let her decide. But at least let her drive both first, who knows? We were not even considering the Accord at first either. Good luck!
