    Default 4.4.3 - An improvement? Camera?

    I've avoided installing 4.4.3 until I hear more feedback (although it seems to be trying to get me to install it every 5 seconds). Didn't even mean to download it but it did it anyway.

    Has anyone noticed the alleged camera improvements? Any other changes other than the dialer and contact lists, which from comments and pics seems to be a step backward?

    I think the low light performance has improved dramatically for the camera. Haven't noticed much other difference.

    Good to hear about the camera. Guess I'll just go ahead and install it.

    I have several comparison photos on G+. The camera has greatly improved in auto white balance, exposure, and low light.

    I don't shoot with the flash so I can't give an opinion there.

    I assumed that he referring to photos that end up with a haze over them. This can happen when using the flash in low ambient light situations. The haze is sometimes white but usually it has a green hue. Therefore, I believe the "Hulk effect" was referring to the green color.

    When this happens it seems to me that the flash is out of sync with the shutter. Whether that's the actual problem I don't know.

    Hi,
    Can you point me to your photos on G+? If you have any comparison shots before and after, that will be great.
    I have just ordered the Moto X after lot of apprehensions about the camera.
    I am not expecting the best camera smartphone but something that is passable... something in the range of a Nexus 5 in terms of image quality would be fine with me.
    If you have used the Nexus 5 or other mid-top end phones , some comparison with the MotoX camera would be very helpful.

    Thanks.

    I've had pretty good luck with the camera after the 4.4.3 update, but sometimes I can see that it's trying to underexpose the shot, so I just drag the focus/exposure reticle to a darker area of the frame. That helps a lot to brighten up a dim photo.

    I want it! Sadly I'm on at&t so nothing yet. My outdoor pics on the Moto X are fine on 4.4.2, but the indoor ones - they're really hit and miss.

    Can someone post the apk for the camera app? I don't see any update for India in the near future.

    Here is a fundamental question that I have not yet find the answer:

    When they say improved camera quality, does that only apply to the Moto X's default camera app? Or is there a system level tweaking that made all camera apps taking better pictures?
