New Moto X and Moto G boot animation welcomes in the warmer weather of springtime

Alright, Moto X and Moto G owners, Motorola thinks it's time to welcome in the spring. And they're doing so with a boot animation, just as they did for the winter and April Fools' Day. Except now it's ten seconds of melting snowmen, flowers, and a chick breaking from its egg.

Motorola, ever so cute. Apologies to those in the southern hemisphere.

Obvious troll is obvious. We shouldn't even be replying. I pity how empty and meaningless his life must be if he's really got nothing else better to do.

Moto keeps the moto x owners interested and keep doing something different threw out the time they have the device that's good to see.

Gives a reason and reminder to reboot. Computers need regular rebooting, phones included. Thank you, moto X.

why should I reboot if I'm not having any issues? The phone is great and it can last months without needing a reboot. I probably reboot once every 2 months. I saw the April 1 animation once. now it's changed to spring. I'll probably see it once before they change it again.

nice problem to have ;)

I'm glad Moto is taking the time to do this. Not as beautiful as the original boot animation but I appreciate anything I get given to me.

Actually this made me wanna reboot and check it out lol. Still hadn't changed yet.

I have a Moto X and the boot animation is the least important thing about this phone, I find it charming that Motorola has taken it upon themselves to change this up every so often. Boot animation will never sway my purchasing decisions, but hey, come on, a little bit of whimsy should be appreciated.

To debate the pros or cons of this is laughable. It's benign.

Yet if this were Samsung, there would be a multitude of posts calling this a gimmick (which is really what this is).

At least it wasn't an animated tornado or flood.

That would be insensitive.

It uses your location to determine if you get a spring or fall animation. Southern hemisphere gets a fall animation!

Well man, Im from Brazil, and Have a Moto G... my boot have changed to a fall and appears to have a skrill.

I don't have a Moto X but I'm curious of the technical details of the animation delivery. Was this an update that needed to be pulled down or just a time bomb? I don't think they'll put this type of thing on their feature list, it's just a nice little bonus that does differentiate their brand.
