Changelist is here for T-Mobile's Motorola Moto X update

Changelist is here for T-Mobile's Motorola Moto X update
Those T-Mobile customers rockin' the Motorola Moto X have received an update for the phone. A number of improvements to the rear-facing snapper come with software version 139.12.57.ghost_row.Retail.en.US. You will notice an improvement in capturing natural light and in color accuracy for better shots outdoors and in backlit conditions. The update also allows you to focus faster and there will be no need to refocus in conditions with low-lighting or where your subject is in continuous motion.

Thanks to the OTA update, T-Mobile users with the Moto X will need less time teaching the phone when to respond to the "Ok Google Now" verbal cue. Touchless controls are more accurate and responsive, and transferring content from your old Android phone to the Moto X is much easier.

Some bugs are also killed dead by the update including one that made your voice sound choppy to the person on the other end of a phone call. Another bug that could prevent the phone from reporting its position to the Moto Care Lost Device Finder service has been fixed. And for those who have their Moto X in their pocket during delicate brain surgery, a bug that caused the phone to read text messages and announce calls while not in Drive mode has been repaired. The new software version gives T-Mobile's Moto X users 30 days from installation of the update or the activation of the phone, to redeem the free 50GB of Google Drive storage being offered in a promotion.

Motorola suggests that your battery be at least 50% charged when you download and install the update. If you have not received a notification about the update, you can try to pull it out manually (what a image that conjures up) by going from Settings>About Phone>System Updates>Download>Install.

T-Mobile is on top of their game when it comes to updates as always.

T-Mobile had nothing to do with it.
the T-Mobile version is the unlocked model.

Could we maybe see an updated review based on the new camera performance? I think this is the first time any company has released a software update that has so drastically improved camera performance.

HTC did something similar with the One, but I don't remember PA revisiting the One's camera for it. Hopefully they decide to do it this time, because it really is a big improvement.

We'll see. They just recently did a comparison between the Moto X & the DROID Ultra, which doesn't make sense. That's like Chevrolet comparing the Traverse & the Tahoe.
