Not too long ago, Motorola broke away its camera app and released it into the Google Play Store for faster updating. And today, the app saw an interesting update which adding the ability to use the volume rocker as a shutter button. This app update is one that is somewhat odd, because really there shouldn't have been any reason why Motorola would need to add this new feature...

"Still, we would rather see more handsets going the Windows Phone route and building dedicated shutter buttons onto smartphones."

Why couldn't you say the SONY XPERIA route - HATERS!

I know - my issue is, this is an ANDROID STORY and there is an ANDROID phone manufacturer (Sony) already doing this - so why elevate Windows Phone as the "exemplary one" and totally deny Sony the credit that they deserve. Neither Nokia nor Windows Phone needed any mention here.

Not that I'm complaining at all... it's just that I've noticed that Phone Arena is posting an article for every Motorola update that gets released, but not for other manufacturers... are other manufacturers just not releasing frequent updates like Motorola, or is Phone Arena just really big fans of the Moto X & Moto G?
