    On the back of the rumours of a 6" N6 I bought a moto x and on reading the rumours were correct I'm glad I made the change.6" phones are too big for me.
    The downside is you're stuck with my dumb questions over the next few months.

    I've only taken a couple of photo's but so far it's as good if not better than the N5.HDR is much faster on the x.

    is the google camera app better than the stock moto x camera? Just got my new smartphone and went ahead and downloaded the app. (First time post, glad to be apart of the community!)

    I found the google camera to be better at focusing than the moto camera, though the moto camera seemed a little better in low light.... But that was only in two photos. I'd have to do more tests to see.

    FYI I have no photo skills. I just attempted to get identical shots. Stock app settings were a little different as one shot 4:3 and one wide screen. I tried multiple times to force the moto camera to focus on the pink flower and never could. Same with the red berries....if you zoom on the moto pic you see they are out of focus.

    The Moto X camera can switch to 4:3 or 16:9 (default) and it has a weird semi-manual focus+exposure "reticule" you can turn on (it's off by default)

    Im not an avid camera user.. But the google app seems to be my preferred choice IMO. all in all a decent camera for a great phone.
