    So I take it you've tested it with the new update then?
    My performance/satisfaction with the turbo was so bad I actually reverted back to my Maxx, which was outperforming the Turbo. I've used the update, and its an improvement for sure, but nothing to really get overly excited about. I've used the Galaxy 6 and holy god....I know its the top of the line camera, but wow. The battery didn't work for me on the G6 tho, so I'm looking to compromise so im going to be trying the LG G4....camera and replaceable battery. That's what I, personally, realize I look for. Its important to me, and if someone else like me was looking at the Turbo, I'd say don't.

    I snap shots while walking at an average of 5mph without stopping, no blur at all. Going to o test it at the tigers game and the slow roll bike tour in the next few days, I'll post my results.

    I take shots while spinning slowly in a circle with my hands up in the air like I just do not care, no issues yet except some slight nausea and vertigo!!!

    What I meant was have you tried the Turbo's camera after the update with the same type of shots that were giving you issues before?

    I would expect nothing less out of Samsung, I mean how long have they been producing P&S cameras? If anything I'd be disappointed if they didn't have one of the best cameras out there. Same with Sony, and while Motorola uses their sensor, it's their post processing software that is their weak link. And that is where companies that have produced dedicated cameras start to shine. They have the experience in software to back up their hardware. And if we're being honest, that will also be their Achilles Heel, because they're not going to get help from Sony or Samsung in that regard when it will only make Motorola more competitive to them. For me personally, it's the other stuff that make Motorola worthwhile. And if a camera is good for even 75% of what I need, in conjunction with the other plusses Motorola brings to the table, I'll stick with them.

    Not sure why, but I still don't have the update available in the Play Store.
    Play Store apps tend to roll out over time. Maybe they just haven't gotten to you yet (although it seems they should have by now).

    I've used the update extensively over the last couple days, and I'm really impressed. I don't have a GS6 to put it up against, but my wife does have a GS5. At least in speed of taking photos, the Turbo keeps up with it. That's more than good enough for me.

    The most noteworthy thing in this thread is that somebody walks an average of 5mph. That's a 12-minute mile. 37 minutes, 12 seconds for 3.1 miles (5k). I know people who can't RUN a 5k that fast.

    I wasn't disagreeing or anything. Just a little befuddled. Your height probably has a lot to do with it, if your legs are proportional.

    For the record.... I truly hope the update makes the turbo the killer camera it could be. Yes I was pretty vocal about my let down with it, but was more insulted by those who felt I had no right to discuss that fact or who said how perfectly amazing the camera was, in light of countless examples of failures. I wanted it discussed for the exact reason...the hope moto would realize the problem and try to remedy, or at least, improve it. I simply got tired of waiting and was blown away by a really, really good camera, so I simply can't go back, esp with prime time picture taking season for me coming up and having been spoiled with that Galaxy s6. If the lg g4 is even 90% as good camera, with the removable battery, I'm excited for it

    I kinda felt the same, it worked in full sunlight great, but was bad indoors at medium and low light. I remember the backlash you got for saying negative feedback, I also got the same treatment. But if they are updating the app to fix exactly what we "bitched" about, obviously it was a large issue. I think some Motorola fanboys and close minded or maybe take comments about a phone personal. And that's true my hilarious, unless they have a relationship with it like in the film Her...

    It's a camera app that will work on the turbo. Try it out, it doesn't replace the stock app.

    What you said, and also the "I don't have that problem" factor. It's apparently difficult for some folks to understand that their usage may not be the same as yours. What works for them, may be broken for you...or vice versa.

    That's why when we complain about lower light motion shots we are treated to replies with brightly lit motion shots.

    It's not just this phone and this camera where that happnes, though. It's a bigger issue in human interaction.

    Ah. Yes, indoors is a tricky thing.

    I took my daughter to the playground and took a bunch of shots of her shooting some hoops this afternoon. The quality from a clarity standpoint has never been a problem outdoors, and it wasn't today. Never have had a blurry shot on the playground. So, I couldn't check on the lower light and motion issue, but I did definitely notice the captures were more as I was hoping with the quicker shutter. The ball was much closer to where I expected it to be (if it was in the air when I took the pic) than before the update. Before it was a matter of taking a couple/few shots if I wanted the ball at a particular point. Margin for that seems closed significantly now.

    Still hoping for positive reviews on the bigger issue, though.
