    Can't argue with you about how the phone feels in your hand. We all have different hands.

    I do want to ask you about camera quality though. Have you owned a Nexus 6 and the Pure side by side? I consistently get "better" pictures from the N6 indoors or mid range outdoors.

    The Pure just has this delay that causes motion blur. I'm trying to adjust ME (my technique) to see if I can make it work for me, but the Nexus is hands down much simpler to get sharp and contrasty photos with.

    Regarding the 5x, no contest, it's easily better than both of these phones camera's.

    What puts the N6 ahead of the Pure is its auto HDR processing so far.

    In a dark setting the Pure makes brighter pics, the N6 makes sharper pics. Put them both together and you have the 6P.

    Kind of agree with that.

    So, I got my otterbox defender case on the pure, and either the extra weight has improved the steadiness of the photos OR yesterday's camera update did something. I'm getting much less motion blur now.

    The shots are all still slightly overexposed with mediocre processing, but I've found that transferring the photos to computer and tweaking curves in Photoshop has made me much more satisfied.

    Overall, it's getting there.

    There was actually clouds behind that. Had to manual exposure to get any detail on the tree. HDR was no help. MPXE simply can't deal with contrast.

    I had no idea there were palm trees in England.

    I agree with many of the complaints about this camera. Overall, just not very good compared to other camera phones. But with descent light, it's pretty good (as are most camera phones). This was taken in good light. Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock.

    Another pic. I will try to use a 3rd party app the following days, I find the native app too restricting.

    For me this is quite good but I am not too picky... The pictures of the lightbulbs were taken with exposure adjustments.

    Just ordered my Moto X and was curious to know if you have to use the Motorola camera app or if you can switch to the default android/marshmellow camera app?

    Concert video, second half zooming in (warning some adult language)

    did NOT select stabilization on YouTube

    This makes me happy to see. I really do enjoy recording concerts and I have had a hell of a time finding a phone that doesn't blowout the bass. Looks great, sounds fantastic.

    Just dumped my Nexus 5x for a MXPE. The battery life was too short for me there.

    Yes, you can use other camera apps but only the Motorola camera app will work with the double-twist gesture.

    Nice pics Ry.
    Anyone notice any improvement after the camera app update?
    Haven't really tested it and I saw some people claiming they are getting better pics.

    Just found out that you can lock focus (don't believe it was there) by tapping and holding.
    Also you need to tap everywhere on the screen to shoot but not on the focus icon (I used to take pics by tapping on the icon and I couldn't use the camera yesterday).
