Updated: Motorola’s full change log is now live.


Some good news for early Moto X buyers on T-Mobile as a new software update is rolling out with “dramatic” camera improvements. The Moto X was a device I gave high remarks to in my review but specifically called the camera as an area that needed work before the device could really hit the levels of the Galaxy S 4 or HTC One.

As anticipated, a software update is rolling out with improvements to the Moto X shooter and a number of sites are already calling it a big improvement. Unfortunately my unit is of the AT&T branding, so no update has arrived on that end…but T-Mobile branded Moto X customer should be on the lookout for the update.

According to Motorola, the update will include:

  • Enhanced auto-white balance performance and color accuracy
  • Improved exposure in outdoor and backlit scenes
  • Reduced noise in low light scenes

There’s some pretty measurable test results on both AnandTech and Droid-Life so hit the links if you want to see the “in person” differences with the “before and after” quality.  I haven’t found any word on when this roll-out will go widespread but if you’re a Moto X user, I’d be eagerly awaiting its arrival.
