Motorola releases new boot animation for autumn

Motorola releases new boot animation for autumn
One of the small touches that shows the impressive attention to detail that Motorola puts into its devices is in the boot animation. The stock boot animation on a Moto X is already quite nice, but Motorola has a habit of making new animations for different seasons or events. There was a new animation last winter, and for April Fool's Day this past spring; and, instead of a summer themed animation this year, there was a World Cup themed animation. 

Now, it's time for a boot animation for autumn, and Motorola doesn't disappoint. This one is a bit shorter than in the past, and simply shows a cartoony woodland creature swinging on a branch and jumping into a pile of fallen leaves. The only odd thing is that we're not 100% sure what kind of woodland creature it is. The teeth seem to imply that it's a beaver, but the tail is too small. It could be a chipmunk, but without stripes. Maybe even some sort of bear. Who knows?

Still, if you are a Motorola owner, it seems to be time for your quarterly device reboot.

I got this phone Monday and the battery is quite frankly not that bad.... Maybe it's because I don't play games on my smartphone but I surf the web constantly plus at my job I have to use my phone to communicate with others by the time I get home at 9pm I'm left with 30%. That is not bad to me..

Battery life on my OG Moto X is great. Battery life on the 2014 Moto X seems pretty bad though...

I was going to buy an LG G3 because of the beautiful display and beastly specs, nut when I saw the specs in the Z3C, I was still going to get the G3. Then, I saw the battery life for the Z3C. I don't know how they did it, but 10 hours of battery life, plus high-end specs in a small package, good bye G3

Hasn't arrived on my X yet. They're probably rolling it out to chunks of devices at a time. I do love how little touches like this give Motorola's phones personality. :)

Maybe they should devout some of that personality to the battery.
