    That switched from the Bionic to one of the two phones listed in the topic title? If so, is the camera better or worse then the Bionic??

    My father an I both have/had Bionics with extended batteries. He got a Moto X (he works for Motorola) and I've been able to play with it a bit. In my opinion, the camera operates MUCH better than on the Bionic with similar if not better quality.

    Moto X user here. Camera is much better, especially after the recent update they pushed out.

    My wife had the Bionic and she now has the Moto X, like others have said after the upgrade the camera is much better. She loves the Moto X, where she hated using the Bionic.

    So then coming from a Bionic to either of these two phones is not a step down, but a step up. Good to know!!!

    All those reviews ranting about the camera had me worried, not anymore! Can't wait for my Moto X to arrive!

    As expected, the camera delivered although NOT with the Motorola Camera App but rather the Camera Zoom FX app.

    The quality difference is very noticeable even though both cameras are the same MP

    How does the battery life compare between the Bionic with its 2760 mah oem extended battery and the Moto X's 2200mah battery?

    My X gives me very similar battery life as my Bionic with extended battery did - maybe even a bit better (at about half the thickness).

    Just curious, jamjr - did you have the Moto X early on, or after the camera update (which I believe was around early November?)

    I had it after the update. I thought the camera was terrible. It would take good shots from time to time but overall the majority of pics were poor. I have seen some say they like the camera but for me it was a deal breaker.

    Agreed. It's better and thinner than the bionic with the extended battery.
