    Just upgraded to the Note 4 on Sprint. Unfortunately Sprint doesnt have as many phones to offer as other carriers. Will the Moto X 2015 be available to Sprint?

    No one knows for sure, but the rumor is that the Moto X will be a one-version for all carriers like the Nexus 6 is.

    There's no excuse for the camera to be less than S5 quality, and it should really be close to the Note 4. Flagship products should be the best, and their cameras have been awful. I rarely take photos with my 2014 x since it's so bad.
    You're right, there is no excuse but the sad fact is that the Moto X's camera has been so subpar in it's two previous releases that it's what we should have come to expect from it.

    Trust me, I'm hoping for the best but I am not optimistic the least bit.

    Has moto ever has a camera on par with other phones of the same year? They always seem to say it's going to be good and never deliver

    I'm happy with my new Note 4. Was talking with the reps at Best Buy and they keep telling me to stay away from this new Moto X. They say that there are nice features unique to the phone but the camera and battery has less than stellar on the previous two.

    That's not much to go on, really. It's just their word. If you went in with the intention of buying a new phone, even though it's not out yet, they might've just tried to make a sale, because they know the Note 4 is the "top" Android phone and also the most expensive. Until both Moto X's are out (especially the phablet) and used in the real world, it's anyone's guess.

    I doubt your local best buy reps know anytime we don't know. It's not like they played with it or anything given its over a month away from release.

    Reading it back, I think he meant to say that the reps said he should stay away from the Moto X because the camera and battery was less than stellar, not has. It was a typo. But still, I just think they said that so they could make a bigger sale with the Note 4. That's their job, afterall. On the other hand, it's also irresponsible of them, because they have no idea what the new phones will be like. The bottom line is they had to make a sale.

    probably not.

    No, they definitely never have. I don't remember them ever pimping the camera as a selling point but to say they're going to "bring it" w/ this year's camera has me slightly optimistic.

    The same guys who've been saying they're going to bring the 5.1 update?

    seem to remember HTC saying something like that about the M9. maybe even the M8. I mean what else would these people say when they're asked if their camera is gonna suck again?
    have to admit though, I've bought into it a little myself.

    Looks like they are putting in a front flash which is useless for me. I'd rather the flash be gone and a better sensor for the rear camera.
    Next-gen Moto X leaks hint at a big screen and a front flash

    Theres no question that MotoX has always been a step behind high end phones released in that time frame but yet it always runs about the same or sometimes better. Motorola's OS skin is very light and close to vanilla and they add improvements on it. The only thing that will steer me away is if they come out with a 32GB for VZW and no 64 or even high option. I wouldn't mind a 32GB with Micro SD but 32GB without expandable memory is useless for me.

    I do hope Motorola smartens up and puts a good camera in it but we will have to wait until it's released to find out more. I also do like that nylon ballastic back like on the Droid Turbo. I played with that phone and it's nice but only 32GB and no expandable.

    Showing my age I guess, but I couldn't care less about a flash on the front.

    Nope. I'm not a selfie person. My wife takes some when we are away or something of us but that's it.

    exactly ... never trust a sales person, much less one at best buy, when discussing phones that aren't out yet.

    i want to believe but I've never had nor seen a Moto device with a good camera. They've all been so poor compared to the Galaxy and iPhones of the world.

    If there is a moto x sport with a 5.2 inch screen and large battery (like in the droids) there really wont be a reason for the droids since their biggest selling point is the battery.

    If the moto x sport has a big battery and is more of a pure android without the verizon droid stuff... the new droid is going to have to really be something worth skipping the sport over..

    With everything being rumors until next tuesday who knows though.. with a star wars movie coming the droid line may wind up being something gimicky..

    agreed ... some employee that says they're gonna "bring it" doesn't exactly have me doing cartwheels. I just hope it's decent, cause if a phone is running near stock, it's pretty much a guarantee they're gonna have to sacrifice in the camera optimization ... I think it's important to judge it on its own, cause realistically it's never gonna be the S6 or G4. there's tradeoffs, that's Android, for better or worse

    it better have good low light performance. there's no excuse anymore.
    so don't go showing us closeups of friggin roses, ok? we wanna see what you can do in da club!
    This. Well not how I would've worded it lol, but I agree with the sentiment. I'm tired of people posting macro and outdoor shots saying how great cams are when there's already a ton of phones that pull those shots of well. But only a select few don't fall on their face at low light shots

    I agree, im spoiled to the motorola features, when the first moto x was announced and i saw the commercials on youtube i was sold! The only thing that kept me from buying a moto x was that the droid maxx was anounced.. i got all the goodness with a bigger battery!
