Motorola Moto X camera app apk available for your Android phone

0. phoneArena posted on 27 Jul 2013, 12:18

The incessant buzz surrounding the Motorola Moto X will probably get louder leading to the August 1st release of the phone; last week, we showed you the camera interface and controls. Now, the APK for the Moto X's camera app has been outed so that anyone with an Android phone can theoretically install it. The problem is that not all of the features are working...

How long till all the major features get put into custom roms making the software side of this phone pointless to anyone who can root their phone.

how could you say that, it wouldn't be pointless because you would get all of the features without voiding your warranty :P

The always on voice control and always on display can't be put on other phones without having a MAJOR MAJOR hit on battery life. Moto X has specific cores and display built in a specific way to save battery.

That's true. At least any phones with OLED screens should technically be able to get the cool notifications feature! I'm not sure if its worth doing on a Galaxy S4 though. Trading all the sensors functionality for that isn't worth it for my use case.

I don't even think the new camera functions would work well for anything other than the Moto X too. Without ClearPixel, maybe fast shutter speeds or some algorithms will funk with your camera and give you messed up pictures?

I do remember that during S4 launch video, they have said that they have a co processor for sensors. the octa core X8 is just mere marketing. It all boils down how google is going to use that co processor to make a difference in real time usage. It's just like a solution for videos, where application cores delegate task to Hardware video encoders and decoders, which are essentially co processing units optimized for hardware implementation of the codec software.

Moto never marketed their processor as octa core though.

This is how they describe it on their website:

Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System (1.7 GHz dual-core application processor, 400 MHz quad-core GPU, natural language processor, contextual computing processor), Power/Audio Management: PM8921

That's a big difference from saying octa core

you have to enable unknown sources in your security settings and install it by some file explorer app (like ES file explorer... or "my files" app which have samsung with touchwiz pre-installed)

Well, I don't know anyone else's having this problem, but my camera won't flash when I have the settings on flash.

HDR doesn't work on i717, you cant set the resolution or storage location and the wrist flip thing doesn't work. I'm sticking with "camera ICS+".
