Last month, Motorola announced that a software update for its Moto X was coming to help with camera performance, not just speeding up focus times and transitions between front and rear cameras, but also working to correct one of our biggest problems with image quality, the color balance. From the early sample pics we saw, the improvements seemed quite noticeable, and after that update first became available to T-Mobile users, we saw it hit Sprint just a couple days later. Since then, though, we’ve been wondering when AT&T – arguably the most popular Moto X carrier thanks to its exclusive access to Moto Maker customizations – would get around to sending out its own update. We ended up having to wait until October, but it’s finally here, hitting users starting today.
In addition to those camera changes, the update improves voice recognition accuracy and speed for the phone’s touchless control features and fixes some minor bugs.
A better camera will go a long way towards making the Moto X more attractive, but bigger news may be coming soon: we’re anxious to learn when those wood backs will finally arrive, as well as when Moto Maker carrier availability will expand to include networks beyond AT&T.
