LG G Pad 8.3 and HTC One Google Play editions are receiving Android 4.4.2 right now
Those with the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play edition will find that Android 4.4.2 brings nothing more than a few bug kills and some small UI improvements. The update for the slab weighs in at 52MB. Screenshots showing the HTC One GPe "About Screen" show the device with the most recent Android build installed. Earlier on Friday, HTC posted the kernel source and framework support files for the device's Android 4.4.2 update, foreshadowing this evening's rollout.
Android 4.4.1 just recently was pushed out for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 10. For the lone smartphone in that group, the build brought improvements to the camera. Android 4.4.2 is supposed to fix an issue that Nexus devices are having with SMS messages and also removes a hidden privacy feature called App Ops. This has been a part of all Android builds since 4.3 and was designed to help Android users better control what kind of data Android apps could collect while installed on your phone. Google said that App Ops could break some apps if left as part of the OS, and was released by mistake.
With the LG G Pad 8.3 GPe and the HTC One GPe apparently both receiving Android 4.4.2 on Friday night, it might be a good time for those with the Samsung Galaxy S4 GPe to see if the update is rolling out to that model as well. Let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.

This is what Google Play Editions provide you : No bloatware, speedy updates and no lags.. Well, lags are preety much avoided in 4.4 but because of no bloatware, probability is much decreased..

I think the GPAD is great. Easy to use and super fast. Good battery life too. Pairs up very nice with the G2.
