Motorola introduced the Moto X in early August and there was one certain aspect that received critics from both the tech publications and customers: the 10 MP ClearPixel camera mounted on its back.
When Motorola presented the Moto X they said that the ClearPixel camera would provide excellent photos in low-light environment, but the real-life test have proven the contrary. If you experienced similar issues and you acquired your terminal from T-Mobile, you would want to hear that the US carrier has started to roll out a firmware update for Moto X which addresses the camera issues.
As of today, the T-Mobile Moto X owners will be able to download and install a software update on their handsets which enhances the camera and brings other bug fixes and minor improvements.
According to Android Authority, “Motorola has fine-tuned the software in order to deliver better color accuracy, reduced noise for low-light situations and improved exposure for outdoor/backlit scene” in the Moto X software update.
According to the same publication the photo quality difference after the software update is “huge.”
Just like any other software update the Moto X update is rolling out in stages, so if it didn’t hit your handset already, you would have to wait a few more days. Of course, you can check for the update manually by heading to Settings > About Phone > Software Update and frenetically hit the update button.
In case you aren’t familiar with Moto X’s technical specs I remind you that the smartphone packs a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display, a Motorola 8X chipset (dual-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU + two low energy cores + quad-core Adreno 320 GPU), 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, NFC, all standards of WiFi, and a 10 MP primary camera with ClearPixel technology.
