    Yeah it does.

    Funny my wife hates the 'tap anywhere on the screen to take a picture' that Moto does too. I can't stand having to hunt for a little fake shutter button like the note 4 has.
    LOL!

    I refuse to buy any phone that doesn't use the onscreen buttons.

    I may have misunderstood the question. The note 4 does not have a dedicated *physical* button. It has an on screen button which I dont like. I think the note 4 lets you change it to 'tap anywhere to take the picture' though.

    Yep, my N4 (perhaps the last IMO great Note) is set to tap anywhere. This can also be a problem, since I take a lot of unintended pics when moving the phone around. A slight ding in regards to thin bezels. Did not have the issue with the S4.

    Pretty thorough camera comparison with a lot of indoor and low light shots. Moto X gets killed here by the Note 5, which was expected, but it's also bested by the one plus 2. Fairly disappointing.

    New review from Slash Gear.

    http://www.slashgear.com/moto-x-pure...kout-16404526/

    They summed up review by stating,

    "The Moto X Pure Edition is the best value in a top-tier smartphone on the market today."

    Think I made the right choice in going with XPE over OP2!

    Am I all alone in not caring that much about the camera? If I want to take pictures I will use a dedicated camera. I only take random pictures with my phone.

    You're not alone I just don't understand why it is SO important as ok low light quality isn't great but normal light the images I have seen it looks more than good enough and as you say if it matters that much then carry a camera around!

    Glad I am not alone. I usually only take pictures during the day or inside anyway.

    I just want the phone to work and not lag.

    OK, have this thing set up enough to take it out and use it today. Actually it was pretty easy and Moto Migrate did carry over everything from my old phone pretty fast - first time I have not started over on my texts when getting a new phone! Also paired with my Moto 360 easily (as it should...). It is bigger than I am used to but does feel good in the hand. Anyway, off into the wild with it...

    Agree 100% though I think more and more people like us are in the minority.

    Of course a dedicated camera is great when practical, but I don't always want to take it with me everywhere I go. With 4 kids I appreciate the speed and simplistic operation of a camera on my phone, which is always with me. Sure, most of my pictures are outside, but I can never predict or plan when I'm going to want to take a quick picture or video, and I'd like to have a capable device to do that with.

    I care about the camera -- My phone is my camera since it is always with me. I don't expect insane quality but a good solid picture really isn't asking for much now a days when we are walking around with quad cores in our phones (remember when those were the new thing in PCs?) .

    Yeah don't get me wrong. I see why people want a camera and it is nice to have a decent one. It just isn't my go to for taking pictures.

    Pocketnow has its video review online. I think today it will also be on the site.
    I believe it's a pretty fair review. The major downside for the reviewer was battery life.
    He liked most of Moto's software additions, the camera and the performance.

    This. Phones are a pic taking convenience, but "real" cameras to me have optical zoom and not the "evil" known as digital zoom, which is not a real zoom.

    Wow that comparison picture of the screen at full brightness doesn't look good for a potential buyer like myself, I just hope he made a mistake with the slider bar

    I thought the same thing. I'm glad they put it right next to the note 5 as that's the other phone I'm considering. Edge to the note 5 in display....
