    Default purple smearing

    I got a moto x, and I noticed that moving black objects have a purple haze effect. This Is actually similar to my aunt's S4. Is my moto x defective or is this just an amoled thing?

    Welcome to the forums.
    Can you post some kind of picture?
    That doesn't sound normal.

    Does it show up in the picture though? Or is it just while in the viewfinder?

    I was able to take a video of it with my iphone, but I don't know how to upload a video to this forum.

    I'm no Spielberg but here it is. Might be hard to see though... I chose the app drawer because it was easier to capture the smearing there due to the grey boxes and the black background.

    I could see it a little. If you can, exchange it.

    Yes they will exchange if you're not happy with it. I found their customer service top notch. You can either keep the phone while they make you a new one (you need to give a credit card up front) or they will email you pre paid postage, you send it back and they send you a new pin code to design your new phone.

    Weird, I hadn't read about the issue from anyone else in the Moto X forum

    Maybe this? Moto X 4.4 Kit Kat T-Mobile, low brightness causes gray to turn purple?

    My moto x does have that grey-to-purple with low brightness effect as well. My note 3 has the same purple trail effect as my moto x, so I think the purple haze and grey-to-purple effects are due to the amoled panels they use.

    Every AMOLED I've had has done something similar @ low brightness.

    I thought this was a well known amoled issue on low brightness. I certainly could be wrong, but this is not the first time I have heard of this. Anyone else?
