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

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

-Removed unwanted Verizon software

tdizzel says:

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.

Why take the two minutes to disable or remove it when you can take a few seconds to bitch about it online?

NoNexus says:

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

baldypal says:

The "disable" button is disabled for a lot of the VZW bloatware, btw. Just thought you should know.

tdizzel says:

Unless you have a pretty old phone its not disabled.

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

tdizzel says:

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.

ultravisitor says:

And I have a Moto X, and I have a bunch of Verizon bloat disabled.

Maybe this means my Moto X is special.

Is the Moto X still on 4.2?

Still waiting for MotoMaker and 32GB on good ole VZW!

Muzta says:

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

udazavlanje says:

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

When will this arrive for us Maxxers?

mattbrich says:

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

PlayDLine says:

At this point I'd rather wait a little longer and skip to Kit Kat 4.4. Is that an option?

2ntense says:

Yup...

endofrico says:

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.

Pollster says:

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?

Nev says:

They're all downloading their updates right now.

deadpenguins says:

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....

udazavlanje says:

Are there reports of call issues on GSM carriers ?

Brady KEITH says:

tmo and at&t approved the update pretty quickly...i think any issues were addressed by installing the update.

udazavlanje says:

Sweet. I can be hopeful then, while waiting on 32gb w Verizon.

Wish I was eligible for an upgrade now...

Mark_Venture says:

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!

VTerp says:

Same for me! Woo hoo!
