    I have five Droids. All of them have a way to invert the screen colors, except one. How can I get negative colors on a new Moto G (motorola XT1032 falcon_aio)?

    Accessibility/Inverted Rendering Does not exist.
    Accessibility/Vision Does not exist.
    Settings/Display has nothing even remotely related.

    There are no widgets like the Invert Colors on Samsung Admire 2.

    Even the apps for this are no good. The Droids that do it do so through GPU transformations. The apps are resource killers.

    I, too, have searched high and low for an invert or negative display feature without success. I am running Android her 4.4.4 but have been searching for this from 4.4.2

    Any guidance from Motorola or a kind soul?

    I am beginning to think Motorola just plain doesn't give a flying poo that their new phone is 800 kinds of broken.

    The phone isn't broken just because you can't invert the colors. I don't even understand the idea of inverting the colors. Why would you want to do that? What do you mean by inverting? When I think of inverting something, it's putting it upside down.

    Don't call a phone broken just 'cause you can't do something you could do in another phone.

    As aside, this is in the Moto G thread, but the moderator put it there. Indeed, the Moto G is not broken. The XT1032 Falcon, which for whatever horrible reason Motorola is calling it a Moto G, has hit an miss manufacturing defects.

    Now for a lesson in inversion math: COLOR inversion, as stated BEFORE your worthless post, is where you INVERT the colors. That means you take the binary value of it and you find its complement and assign that color to the respective pixel(s).

    You are correct that an inversion of pixels by coordinates would flip it upside-down. But the fourth word on this thread title is color. Or are you poking holes in my lexical discourse? There is a word for digital color inversion but since Android called it "Invert Screen Colors" I simply chose to be consistent. I get it, I do, sometimes people ask ridiculous things. If someone posted "Hey how do I transpose every third pixel in a Diorgian pattern on my device?" my instinct would be to say why the blazes would you want to do that?! But we must overcome that kind of crap and try to help each other.

    Ok. So, I didn't think my response was rude, and didn't mean it to be. I asked you what it was, and said I didn't understand what it was. I do apologize. You're right, I don't know you or why you want/need this inverted thing.

    I'm still not sure what it means to invert colors.

    The XT-1032 Falcon is the Moto G; so is XT-1034, XT-1028, XT-1031 & XT-1033. They are all code named Falcon and given the name Moto G for the general release to the public.

    But, my response is still correct; you can't call a phone broken just because it doesn't have a capability that one of your previous phones had.

    Thank you for tying to explain. I still don't understand inverted colors, but that's just me, I guess. But, again, thank you for trying to explain.

    At what point did I say "it is broken BECAUSE I cannot invert the colors." I said it is 800 kinds of broken. 800 kinds of broken does not translate to screen colors. It translates to "there are many problems with this phone and lacking this functionality is just one of them."

    I understand what they have done, but people who help with the other 799 problems continue to confuse it with the Moto G from a few years ago. My goal was to provide a little heads-up, this phone just rolled out of the factory five weeks ago.

    That figures the one person exclusively familiar with the phone I have is the one that I explained it to lol. I don't even know what it is, but I have one of them. When I turn it on it just says Moto G by Motorola then freezes there (an app I wrote bricked it when I was learning to write su code.)

    Anyway that old Moto G served me well for 2 years before it was bricked and was the inspiration behind choosing this phone.

    You are welcome. Sorry if I offended you earlier. I don't easily get offended so am willing to continue a discussion. I guess I'm not aware of a phone that Motorola called Moto G a couple years ago. I'm only aware of the one that came out last year. I have the XT-1034, US unlocked GSM version.
