Motorola seeks soak testers for the T-Mobile Motorola Moto X

It looks like T-Mobile subscribers sporting the Motorola Moto X are being invited to take place in a soak test. This is a test conducted by Motorola on an upcoming software update. By keeping the number of participants in the test small and manageable, Motorola can quickly take action if something goes wrong and bricks everyone's Moto X. Even if there are just some minor bugs, using the soak test allows Motorola to keep the number of affected units at a minimum while it works on a fix.

To take part in a soak test you need to be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network. And if you are selected to be part of this soak test, or any soak test, you must promise to keep any information relating to it confidential.

Since this model has already been updated to Android 4.4, and other Moto X models have been updated to Android 4.4.2, you can pretty well guess what update is coming to the T-Mobile version of the Motorola Moto X.  And now that Motorola has started lining up soak testers, the actual update is probably not that far away.

other Android OEM's need to get on Motos level when it comes to updates.

For real. The closest right now is HTC, but they haven't even gotten 4.4 to the One on carriers. Granted, they are within their own time frame, aside from the delay caused by the carriers.

Motorola has really stepped their game up, I hope Lenovo doesn't undo all the progress made this year. If Motorola does end up slipping, I'm back to HTC after a 3 year break, because they show the most promise.

"The closest right now is HTC, but they haven't even gotten 4.4 to the One on carriers."

You can't really blame HTC for delay on the part of the carriers. I doubt that HTC could go the Google Play route for a full scale OS update, so the responsibility for the delay points back to the carriers.

I blamed the carriers in the sentence after that, but I can't help but put a little bit of fault on HTC. Motorola has somehow dealt with the carriers effortlessly, the *Verizon* Moto X got KitKat before some unlocked Nexus. I know it's not exactly fair to compare nearly stock devices to OEM-skinned ones, but the carrier certification process should be about the same for all Android devices, and Motorola apparently really hit the carriers hard.

KitKat 4.2.2 leaked for AT&T two days ago. Right now it's a battle between HTC and Samsung to release KK to their flagships.

This is due to Google effect I think so. Let's see now onwards from Lenovo's side.

+1. Somehow, I doubt Lenovo will be able to push the updates out as quickly as when Moto was part of Google. Sad. I can't say this is progress. :-(
