Moto X camera interface leaked ahead of August unveiling, looks dreadfully complicated

Motorola is going to announce a phone on August 1st in New York City called the Moto X. The device has been leaked so extensively at this point that we pretty much know everything there is to know about it except for the price. One new piece of information, courtesy of Android Police, is a detailed description (with screenshots!) of the device’s camera interface.

Let me cut to the chase: It’s bad. Everything is based on gestures and semi circles that require a heck of a lot of manipulation. It’s basically the stock Android 4.3 camera app, except you’re forced to use the sides of the screen instead of the middle. There’s also confirmation of the new “quick capture” gesture, which involves you flicking your wrist to activate the camera app.

Here’s a suggestion: A dedicated camera button.
