Moto X on US Cellular Receiving Camera Improving Update This Month

moto x

We talk a lot about the “four major wireless carriers” in the U.S., often leaving out US Cellular as a potential fifth even though it has typically received all of the same flagship devices that Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have. Obviously, that distinction of being one of the big dogs comes from network coverage, but if you were looking for an alternative to the familiar major players, they tend to keep you covered in the device department. The Moto X is one of those devices that US Cellular received at the same time as the rest.

And with other carriers receiving an update for the Moto X that improves upon the camera, along with Touchless Controls, Motorola Assist, and audio during calls, it’s no surprise that US Cellular’s variant is next up. The update, which we have the details on below, does appear to be identical to the software update that was pushed out to T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T variants of the phone.

We don’t have a specific date for release, but if support docs are being passed around the company, we’d assume it’ll arrive shortly.

If you haven’t already, be sure to checkout our comparison gallery of pictures taken before and after this new software update.

  • NexusMan

    US Cellular before Verizon…unbelievable.

  • needa

  • John Clausen

    Verizon Moto X to receive update when Android 6.9 hits.

  • MikeSaver

    blah blah blah Verizon blah blah blah *everyone laughs*

  • trwb

    Is the Moto X on Verizon the Bionic part 2: the drama continues, lol

  • BrianLipp

    The ONLY excuse ill take from Verizon is that they have the 4.3 update from Moto and are waiting for that to be ready to push out an update.

  • BigRed4X15

    maybe they are releasing it in alphabetacle order?

  • Richard Giordano

    verizon would be the last of all carriers like come on even us cellular got the update before them

  • Phil

    and yet verizon states this update does not exist even though we point out they have all released it

    • BrianLipp

      exactly. Ive kinda been trolling verizon support on twitter and when i called it a “camera update” after they called it an “OS update” they then thought i was having an issue with the camera. i naturally pointed them to the droid-life article with the huge patch notes and they havent responded since. i try not to get mad at those people though, its not their fault that Verizon higher-ups are morons.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Oh Verizon…. Waiting for that 4.3 update at the “end of the month” for the HTC One. We’ll see how I feel about Verizon then if they hit or miss that date… they’re always last.

    • NexusPhan

      Just be happy you don’t have a Verizon Galaxy Nexus still stuck on 4.2.2 I told everyone that it wasn’t coming and nobody believed me. They told me the files were on Google’s website already and that it would be a quick update this time. People never learn.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        That whole GNEX experiment was a disaster. I’m just satisfied for now that I have 4.2.2. . . . either way that N5 just might break me away from Verizon

      • Jaxon Wright

        shiny 4.3 rom on my gnex.

        • Adrynalyne

          Not really relevant to stock updates though.

    • whoa

      Still waiting on 4.2 for my maxx HD its almost been a year didn’t woodside come on stage and promise quicker updates? when they announced.

  • Guest

    I need this on my vzw moto x. I’m tired of people telling me I’m breaking up when I’m on the phone.

    • dtraini30

      How many people do you break up with?

      • whoa

        Just about every call I make someone is telling me I’m breaking upup Verizon needs to hurry up their update testing procedure is causing me to have a negative experience longer than I should have.

      • JZ

        I hadn’t heard about connection issues with this phone. Is it a chronic problem?

        • Fozzybare

          without this update i guess so…

    • Adrynalyne

      Stop dating so many people then.

  • dtraini30

    Save the best for last?

  • Fozzybare

    Generic Verizon statement.

    • rachaelobrien43
