Android 4.4.3 soak test begins on Moto X, brings camera improvements and more
A couple days ago, we heard that a soak test was about to begin for Moto X users on T-Mobile (aka the unlocked Moto X), but it wasn't clear what the soak test would be for. It seemed odd that a bug fix update would push out for the Moto X before Nexus devices, but Android 4.4.3 started rolling out to Nexus devices, and now the 4.4.3 soak test has begun for Moto X users.

The update lists improvements to stability, framework, security, and power profile for the Android 4.4.3 side of things, and we know that Android 4.4.3 in general brings a new look to the Android Dialer app. On the Moto X side of things, image quality is said to be improved with more consistent exposure, more realistic flash coloring, and better photos in low light when using the front camera. There is also an improvement to video recording which allows you to pause recording, rather than completely stopping it. 

Assuming this goes as it has for previous Moto X soak tests, the proper update should start rolling out to all users within the week.

Let's hope carrier devices don't take to long to get the update.

I got a email from Moto a few days ago about the T-Mobile Moto X soak test. It's 4.4.3.

Why wasn't this available on the first version of Kitkat?

Did it take few months to realise this.

Looks like cowboys are employed at Google, not doing their job right?

Why not think a year in advance?

I'm sorry, I'm trying to figure out exactly what you're trying to complain about.

Meanwhile, the 2012 Droids are on 4.4.2, and the 2013 Droids are still stuck on 4.4... Come on Motorola, you're better than this.

Talk to Punit Soni on Google+. He's very good at responding to questions about updates.

Shouldn't this be called a Beta test, and not a Soak test?

"Soak Testing also known as Endurance Testing is performed to determine if the application under test can sustain the continuous loads."

Meanwhile the new white Moto X is being sold for $275 on eBay. :)
