    When you move the phone side to side or up and down, the white background goes blue. Anyway to make it all white or is this the way it is?

    That is a characteristic of AMOLED displays.

    The Moto X is not nearly as bad in this regard as Samsung phones.

    LCD screens on the other hand start going gray or fuzzy as you start increasing the viewing angles.

    Well, I'm sorry but if you want a phone with an AMOLED screen it's just something you'll have to live with. I find that because I'm actually using my screen, I'm normally looking at it head-on so I don't see the blue shift.

    But, there are many positives and negatives for both AMOLED and LCD screens that there is a trade-off when choosing either.

    -AMOLED Blacks are actually black - LCD Blacks are slightly lighter because there's a backlight and the crystals cannot block the light completely
    -Outdoor visibility suffers a bit but it isn't great with any non-e-ink screen.
    -AMOLED screens have more vibrant colors, while LCD ones can often have a white pallor with colors looking washed out
    -AMOLED screens suffer blue-shift when increasing viewing angles but the screen remains highly clear (although it is much less severe in modern displays) LCD screens turn gray and distort when looked at from an angle.
    -AMOLED pixels require no power to display black colors, so the screen can produce a lot of power savings over LCD ones when displaying many dark screens. LCD's use a backlight which remains constant meaning the pixels work harder to block light. Dark screens draw more power on LCD.
    -AMOLED allows for features such as Moto X's Active Display because each pixel provides its own light so only the pixels being used draw power.

    In all, there are drawbacks to using any type of screen, so you just have to decide which ones you want to live with. Personally the blue shift on my Moto X is very slight so I'm more than happy to live with it in exchange for the benefits AMOLED gives me.

    I started a thread on my issue but thought I would mention it here since we're talking about displays. I find if I use the auto brightness with the Moto X, it distorts the darker colors. I wasn't sure if this is a power saving technique or my phone is defective. If the brightness is set to 20-25% the colors are awesome.

    I literally laughed out loud when I read this.

    Motorola doesn't really have a choice, unless you want them to get in their Delorean, travel into the future, and bring back better screen technology. As it is, this screen is a big advancement. Bummer you don't like it.
