    I have to say, coming from Google Pixel (tired of waiting for the XL when the 5" was too small and Bluetooth Issues), I am very impressed with the Moto Z camera, especially with 16x9 (which was "crippled" on the Pixel to 8MP)

    Could you elaborate? What was disappointing about the camera in the Z Force?

    16:9 is never ideal with a camera sensor that is 4:3 or 3:2. The camera software is just cropping the top and bottom of the photo for you. It's only good, frankly, if you know that you need a photo with that shape.

    True but 16x9 at 16MP is better than 8MP on the Pixel.

    It is ideal for us because we view our photos on our TV most of the time and if not there, then on 16x9 monitors.

    That would be great...I am always open minded... And yes, 21MP would be better than 16.

    Does anyone use a 3rd party camera app and not the Moto camera? I have trouble with the autofocus in low light, and I'm hoping maybe there's a camera with some better software. Or, maybe it's just that this camera isn't the best out there for low light. I will say that Motorola has improved a lot with their cameras though.

    I guess this isn't happening, after all.

    I've played with a few. I'm toying with Open Camera at the moment and it's DRO mode right now.
    None of the apps focus any better and probably worst as 3rd party apps tend to not use the phone's laser.
