Mine has it off center too. No idea if it came like that or not though.

Doesn't seem like anyone has reported occlusion of the image on the sensor though. I would rather not have to return the phone to Moto.

The only reason I'd even do it was to get to customize my actual own Moto X rather than keep the one I bought.

Problem is I know most people don't keep in contact nor store the persons number they bought or traded on CL unless they got burned

Just because it has Corning Gorilla Glass™ doesn't mean it won't break/scratch, it is glass after all.

i fixed mine in 10 minutes flat. pop off the back and the camera comes right out - see the ifixit site, much easier than getting a replacement.

I removed the offending piece entirely. On mine, it wasn't foam. It was more like a black circular sticker just to fill in the slight space between the camera and its opening.

i probably could have done that too, but i didn't mind the option of getting a new look on my phone! going from black front, black accent, teal back to nwo White front, Gold accent and Royal back (Notre Dame) but i didn't get the case

Arrow same problem... seems common

My MotoMaker MotoX (XT1060) has this same issue... from what I can tell, it's a common problem straight from the factory.

As with others, my camera appears unaffected (for now), but it sounds like brave/competent folks can DIY the fix without having to deal with the Moto RMA hassle.
