    I think you should at least wait and see if a software update can enhance/improve the shortcomings of the camera before completely writing it off. I will be waiting and see if moto can improve on what they have or if it is just another poor motorola camera.
    Fingers crossed!

    Went from a gnex on Verizon to the gs4 for 11 days. Was so tired of touchwhiz by then that I jumped at the chance to get the moto x when it came out. I couldn't be happier. I was pretty shocked to see that it was smaller then the gnex. As far as software features go, I think everything moto has included in the x fully compliment stock android. There's no lag and everything seems to just work which is something I couldn't say about the gs4. The moto x is basically the opposite of the gs4. Its usable with one hand. The software is relatively close to stock or at least appears that way and the software "gimmicks" feel like they have been fine tuned to actually be usable and useful not just thrown together with a million other things to make a features list look better.

    I've been using an S3 for a year. Touchwiz annoyed me and my relationship with it got worse, not better, over time. Stock, or near stock in this case, seems to be much more natural in comparison.

    This phone is almost the anti-Galaxy. Simple, uncluttered, and subtle.

    I love my Moto X. I just got it yesterday and it's been great.

    The only thing is that I noticed it rebooted itself (twice). Yesterday it was fine all day, I went to sleep and when I woke up, I noticed that BBS said it had only been on for an hour since it's last boot. And then it rebooted again about twenty minutes later. I have no idea why this happened and it's something I'll have to keep an eye on. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Haven't had that happen but its only my third day. Try a factory restore. I did that right out of the box like with any new phone.

    Has Motorola ever done this? Seems like DROID bionic owners are still waiting for that camera fixing software update. If it happens and does improve the camera I'll be putting my one up for sale on eBay hehe.

    No. The camera is actually not that bad but new Motorola owners always keep hope that an update will be issued. In my opinion we will never see it happen.

    They have some minor improvements but if it was hardware related like the old moto cameras that's probably why nothing has been fixed. This is a new type of camera so only time will tell

    Just don't get your hopes up. If the camera as it sits right now doesn't suit your needs then get something else. You will be let down if you wait on Motorola for anything camera related.

    I love this phone and the camera works great for my needs.

    I'm at work and can't have my phone with me, went out to check on it: 5 hours of idle time and it's at 96%.

    That's amazing. My S4 was normally in the low 80s by now.

    This isn't the old Motorola so I would not assume anything. Their entire management has been replaced by Googlers down to Director level.

    Am I the only one on AC who thinks phrases like "incredibly important" and smartphone camera don't belong together?

    Thank you for this link. This was and is very educating on motos choices for doing things.

    AnandTech | Moto X Review

    This Is awesome to see how the moto is in the running with all quad core performances. Interesting how the extra cores in s4 bring down cpu frequency in first 2 cores lowering the ceiling on achievable speeds while the moto maintains a 1.7 reading because it's only using 2 cores.

    Posted via Android Central App
    Very few apps and OS functions use more than one or two cores and all the quad core phones throttle heavily for heat reasons. Quad core is a spec sheet feature rather than anything really useful.

    Have you seen the new droids? The old Motorola as you put it is very much alive and well.

    This is against the best general rule when buying a smartphone from any OEM: you should always buy based on how it works NOW.

    If folks are worried about the camera, as I was, for some washed out pics just use any number of photo editors and in 5 seconds you have beautiful rich colors.

    It's too bad Google decide the X would have lower specs but the same price as premium phones. Really makes little sense since they can afford to do better. It would remove a lot of doubt from people's minds. Plus the rollout was botched with the exclusivities and availability issues. I'm getting one to see how I like it but will probably wait for the dev version since I pay full price anyway.

    After getting a Moto X on Friday and using it through the long weekend, I gotta say I'm really impressed. This phone is fantastic--perhaps the best of the smartphones I've owned so far (BlackBerry Storm, Droid X, Galaxy Nexus). I love it. I really hope this phone finds its way into lots of people's hands. I think it's great for Android.
