Verizon Moto X

Motorola, as it's done for the other carriers, has released the full changelog for the most recent update to Verizon's Moto X. The camera improvements are the big strokes, of course, but there's a good bit more to the update.

Here's what's new in version 139.15.1:

  • Camera – Improved Photo Quality Improved capture of natural light (auto-white balance) and color accuracy for more precise exposure in outdoor and backlit scenes
  • Camera – Improved Focus Faster touch to focus time and reduced unnecessary refocusing in low light conditions and scenes with continuous motion
  • Camera – Faster Switching Shortened the time it takes to switch between rear and front-facing cameras, as well as transition between the viewfinder and the Gallery app
  • Enhanced Touchless Control — Increased accuracy and responsiveness when using Touchless Control, and added easier training of the “OK Google Now” trigger
  • Improved Motorola Migrate Experience — Improved transfer of content from an old Android phone to a new Motorola phone
  • Google Drive – 50GB Promotion — Added a promotion expiration date - customers have 30 days from phone activation or installation of this update to redeem the 50GB offer
  • Calling – Improved Voice Quality Fixed an issue that could sometimes result in choppy audio being heard by the person you’re talking with on your Moto X
  • Moto Care – Lost Device Finder Fixed an issue that could sometimes prevent a lost phone from reporting its location to the Moto Care Lost Device Finder service
  • Motorola Assist – Driving Detection Fixed an issue that could sometimes cause the phone to read out text messages and announce calls when not in Drive mode

Here's the changelog for the Verizon Moto X update


I wish there was one more feature added to this changelog.

-Removed unwanted Verizon software

Verizon can't possibly know which software no one wants, that why they give you the iron to disable it. I realize that might take a whole 2 minutes, but sick it up big guy.

Because how would anyone know his dissatisfaction? Not many people go in the basement

My S-Pen went through hell to deliver this important message to you

we are talking about about moto X so its a pretty new phone and disable for bloatware wont work

What Verizon bloat can't you disable? I have an ultra and the only Verizon bloat I didn't disable was my Verizon Mobile but I actually use that.

Okay! Yay. So when do I get it? My call quality sucks. On Moto X number two.

That's is actually a list of all the things that bug me the most. We'll see how it goes but I'm exicted

Wow that's sad. Hearing from othersI thought it was a hit or miss but w your experience it looks more like miss. Did you try to replace it again? I guess the motomaker wouldn't make sense - w waiting n going back and forth.

Voice calls is the most important feature that should be at the top of the list

That's the real question! :) mine works great but I'd welcome a few camera improvements. 4.3 soon too I hope.

I care more about the camera update than 4.4 to be honest. The camera is the only element of the MAXX I'm not thrilled with.

Where's the conspiracy theorists who usually say that Verizon cripples anything that stands between them and pushing only Droids?

Verizon couldn't possibly approve an update on a non-droid device with no corresponding update for the Droid version pending, could they?

Am I the only person who has an issue with their speaker volume constantly dropping really low a few seconds after a video starts? I was hoping this update would fix that issue, because it's clearly software....

I'm stock, unrooted, and didn't register my X with Moto Feed Back site since this is just a Demo device that I have.

I was not invited for soak, but I just got notice of the update and it is installing now!
