Moto X

Improvements to camera, touchless control and call quality among others

We got word earlier today that T-Mobile's version of the Moto X was receiving an OTA that above all fixed some of the camera woes in the release software, and now Motorola has a full list of changes on its support website. The update to software version 139.12.57.ghost_row.Retail.en.US specifically calls out a few different camera improvements: auto-white balance, exposure, color accuracy, focus time and camera switching have all received positive tweaks.

Camera aside, Moto X users should see improvements to Touchless Control to increase responsiveness and training for the "Ok, Google Now" command. The Motorola Migrate feature for transferring data from your old phone has received a speed bump, voice quality has improved and two bugs have been fixed in Moto Care and Moto Assist driving mode.

The promotion for an additional 50GB of Google Drive storage when you buy a Moto X now has an expiration date as well, giving users until 30 days after the phone purchase (or this update if you've already purchased) to sign up and receive the storage boost. The camera fixes and improvements may be the biggest user-facing change here, but the other bugfixes and tightening of the screws are just as needed for an overall stable system. Let's hope this hits other Moto X models soon.

Learn to express yourself properly in the English language. Until then, you sound like the jerk you probably are.

hahahaa I'm sitting here scratching my head thinking I forgot the english language when its this douche that can't type a comprehensive sentence to save his life

Nothing, they aren't related. The droids are the stuck up side of the family just because "daddy has money". But daddy doesn't love them, he ignores them just like the rest of the family

Yeah, if my RAZR HD is any indication, don't hold your breath on any updates. Actually, I'm surprised they didn't release your phone with 4.1 so they could update you to 4.2.2 a month later and call that your support.

They All Have Issues.. But T-Mo gets.. Preference..

T-Mobile Forever.

Don't have my Moto X yet but planning on it. I would imagine this phone would get quicker updates on account of it being almost pure vanilla Android. I'm sick of heavily skinned user interfaces and tons of extra fancy features from Samsung or LG that I'd never use. Even though it's being called a "midrange" phone, it's no slouch. And the few extra features Motorola does include seem genuinely useful.
