    Those photos really do look washed out... Definitely looks like a downgrade from my Gnex... I don't mind holding the camera steady for a shot as it is just good practice in general.

    I think the GS4 has taken another step in the lead in my grades for all these phones.

    @All the moto x owners:
    Can anybody take a picture with a 3th party application?

    All reviewers argue that the washed out pictures are software related, so maybe its in the stock moto x application....

    just to pipe in. Marques Brownlee said there was nothing he could find to make it work. also to add my 2 cents, from everything i've heard, no motorola camera that was bad was ever fixed with a software update. to me personally it would make no sense that if it were a simple software fix they woulda just neglected to apply it to the motorola. Assume the worst in making your choice, that camera will stay as is.

    A major issue seems to be from post-processing in my opinion, albeit the sensor and lens aren't the best they are not bad.
    If you see some review sites like AnandTech you will see some good pictures taken by the Moto X yet a majority remain washed out, bad processing of the details.
    What they captured with their cameras was pretty much the same results I got when I used the moto x for a day.

    Before you look at the pictures: Please ignore the colors. Pay attention to the details, the sharpness, the contrast, as well as focus. It's sometimes realistic, and takes decent pictures but there's this fuzziness about the details that looks like bad post processing to me, but again I am not familiar with their this type of sensor so it may just be a trade off.
    (and yes they were taken at the same time, not in different times of the day).
    Moto X

    Samsung S4


    Yet the Moto X is sometimes capable of something like this (notice the sharpness, and good focus while keeping crisp detail despite the black plastics (anyone who does photography knows it is difficult for a lens/camera sensor to capture black on black):


    I have little to no experience with the Moto X's sensors (Anand goes a little bit in dept here) so I am unsure if these can be fixed with a kernel or if it's a sensor trade off. Which imho isn't that great in low light scenarios.

    Edit:
    Now that I remember this camera reminds me an awful lot of the Lumia 920's camera. The fuzziness in details when you zoom in.

    Yeah I did yesterday, works fine. Pics still don't look that great, but photosphere works, gives you an extra gallery app though.

    For me the moto x photos looks fine as I don't require stellar photos to be printed. Subjects are usually locations and family life which it seems fine for. I usually take multiple pics on my cells anyways turning turning back to amateur mode(excludes sports photography), rather then setting up my shot/composing and getting it done right the first time for fine art photography. 98% of my photos on my cells stay on my cells so viewing them on a tiny 5 inch screen isn't so bad to look at. I use my trusty canon 1DC and Arri Alexa for my professional work which do make it to my editing bay.

    moto cameras have always been their achilles heel. its a shame they can't figure out how to produce a phone with a good camera.

    I agree, and that's the only thing keeping me from switching to it from an S4 or One. It's just really important to me.

    I'm in the same boat. I wish moto would come out with a phone with a maxx battery and a good camera for once.

    Edit: Weird, that picture looks much better on my phone. The orange is much brighter, actually all the colors are. And it's not because the brightness is turned up, it's around 40%.

    AMOLED screen....saturates the colors, brightness won't matter much in that case.

    The pictures aren't that bad. This is with HDR on Auto. Is world beating? Not really. Is it the worst camera ever? Not even close. It's infinitely better than the Nexus 4, and just a step below the Lumia 920.
