Hello friends, I have a question that is because the camera JB have no option to photosphere?

The specs say that the Moto G has Gyroscope.

Moto G doesn't have a gyro sensor, so this is the reason why Photosphere won't ever work.

Are you sure it has no gyro? Some site report it has gyro, some other no.
You can try installing photospere.apk and check if if works

The Moto G has an accelerometer. Since it's able to determine X/Y/Z I was able to play Ridiculous Fishing on it. So, I have no idea, why an accelerometer shouldn't be enough for Photosphere to work properly.

Accelerometer and gyro sensor are completely different types of sensors, read Wikipedia.
I suspect it doesn't have a gyro because all sensor test apps report that there is no gyro sensor...

Hang on a moment the Moto G does have a g-sensor. Explain why Temple Run works when it requires a g-sensor for its tilting functionality? There are some videos on YouTube that show the Moto G in action by tilting it, which would require a g-sensor to be on board. An Accelerometer only measures speed/motion, and is used on some mobile devices to determine if the device is in landscape or portrait orientation.

A g-sensor (Gyrometer) determines where a device is on an axis (eg to see where the device is tilted and by how much).

Temple Run (and other games like RR3) rely on accelerometer. It doesn´t need a gyroscope. Sorry.

The g-sensor is the accelerometer, not the gyroscope. The accelerometer measures the device's acceleration compared to the free fall vector (the direction of the g-force), and the gyroscope measures it to a fixed axis of the phone itself.

If you are somewhat handy at flight dynamics, you should know that a plane has three dimensions of rotation: the roll, the pitch and the yaw. An accelerometer can only measure roll and pitch because the axis he yaw is measured to is the orientation of the gravitational pull. Because of he gyroscope has an independent reference axis it can measure all three dimensions which is needed not just keeping a plane safely in the air, but for the photosphere feature too.

How does a level app works then? Smart Tool is able to display pitch and roll correctly

Edit: Found my answer, it has a multipurpose AK8963 magnetometer which also provides orientation and hall effect (magnetic cover screen on/off)

Moto G does have a gyroscope. I'm not sure if it's just the 4g edition or not, but mine does.
