    I have seen some very nice photos from the Moto X (including Damien's above) but in many cases there is post-processing that has been done. So while it may be true that you can coax some great images out of the Moto X with a little effort, that's still different than getting great images straight out of the camera that you feel good about sharing/publishing spontaneously.
    I entirely agree. Most of the photos that I'm happy with are in natural light. I'm not mucking with images much - typically just cropping or letting Google apply HDR as the software sees fit - but anything taken in poor lighting conditions (read: dark) turns out poor to terrible. Also, I tend to take 4-5 shots of a scene and then select that image(s) that I prefer. Admittedly, this is the same workflow I have with my DSLR but for people who just want to take a single photo and be done, well, this is the wrong camera phone.

    comparison between Moto X and Nokia 1020. the 1020 downsized the pic for sharing so I did the same for the MotoX. My son took the shots in his daughter's room....no flash, out of the box settings on the X.

    Light is yellowish/orangish in the room so the Nokia is the most faithful one.

    This first photo was taken outdoors with bright light:

    The second photo was in taken in the dim light of my office:

    I used Tap to Focus on both (this seems to give a better photo). I have the HDR set to "auto."

    Wow. The MotoX is in desperate need of a firmware update to address the camera issue. Are you sure there is no protective plastic on the MotoX camera lens?

    Moto X on left and Iphone 5 on right. Both without hdr and straight out of the phone only resized.

    I'm not displeased. My Galaxy Nexus could never handle a picture taken at a concert like this.

    No flash. HDR off. Touch to focus on.

    A full-res pic of that would be nice. That way, we'll be able to tell how sharp and clear (and noisy) it is in low light situations.

    I've done a few side by side shots with my x and girls s4. My x gets better photos each time. I'm not sure what is the issue with everyone and the camera. Then again maybe there is settings I'm not using on my girls s4 to make shots better

    Its a good camera. Don't see any issues with it. Might not be the best but it does well.

    Jev425's side-by-side comparison of the same pic taken on the MotoX and iPhone 5 clearly illustrates the need for improving the MotoX camera. I can't even imagine comparing the pics of the MotoX and a Nokia Lumia 1020.

    Look at it on your computer. It's 2.28 megs and 10 megapixels.

    Aah. My mistake. The image is hosted on imageshack.

    Anyway, it seems it got the sharpness fairly accurate. I'm impressed.

    I thought the cam messed up on the sharpness in the images... What I'm eager to see are more lowlight shots.

    Edit: typos.

    Some pictures I've taken over the past few days.
    Damien were these post edited? Or are these straight from the phone?

    Tony - Good point.

    These were taken in an ideal condition...outside with diffused light. I'm still looking for pics of people in a dim (not dark) room, or slightly backlit, etc. Mine always turn out unusable.
    Seems like the thing does pretty good in ideal lighting.

    They were fantastic. They even did a Bon Iver song as the last song of the main set.

    Your attachments didn't work.

    [EDIT] Can you please make an album of comparison shots??? That would be awesome.

    It seems like no ones' attachments uploaded to AC work. What's the magic word or secret recipe we need to follow to get them to work?

    No filters on either. No flash, I can't remember if HDR was on.
