A pair of lucky Verizon customers have Android 4.4.2 on their Motorola Moto X
Those toting the Motorola Moto X branded with the Verizon name, did receive the Android 4.4 update in November. But that was a couple of months ago and that update is getting long in the tooth. With the stock Android powered Nexus devices and Google Play editions already updated to Android 4.4.2, surely a little honey could be sent to Verizon owners.

Perhaps there is some magic in the air, or Motorola is conducting a soak test that has not been publicized. No matter what you believe, it seems that at least two Verizon customers have already had their Motorola Moto X updated to Android 4.4.2.. Motorola has said that such an update is on the way, one that will address some known issues with Android and also help repair a battery drain that is munching away on the handset's battery life.

If you are a Verizon subscriber sporting the Motorola Moto X, and by some miracle you are running Android 4.4.2, let us know by dropping us a few lines about your experience with the phone post-update. That is, after you buy a ton of lottery tickets for this week's drawing.

I haven't had any issues with battery drain on my Mini! KK has been running pretty flawlessly on mine.

Anyone experiencing frequent crashes of Chrome with 4.4? With 4.2.2, Chrome was rock solid. With 4.4, I am seeing Chrome crash daily. Sometimes, it crashes multiple times during the day. :-( I also wish I could go back to 4.2.2

Hopefuly this comes to the Droids soon as well. Kitkat has been a killer on the battery life of my Droid Mini :(

+1 on battery drain from KK. That was likely the reason for suspending the update to KK.

I dont thank that it was the reason for suspending the update. The reason I say that is the fact that even after they restarted pushing the update to phones again it was still the same update numbers. The reason that the update was suspended was because it was bricking soo many phones. I do wish that they would fix KK, I mean wasnt one of the big selling points for it the fact that it was less CPU/GPU intensive and therefore would render better battery life? Yet I have lost a whole days worth of battery life on my phone at this point and I dont use it any more than I used to, in fact I use it less now than I did. It just makes me angry, wish I could go back to 4.2.2 but alas.

For real. Up to 30% battery drain on my Droid Mini from "Android OS". On 4.2.2, I could get up to 18 hours of use from my Mini, now I'm lucky to get 7 or 8 by barely using it at all; hopefully 4.4.2 will fix this.

Yeah mine has gone down a little on my Ultra especially on LTE. I haven't really noticed much of a change on WIfi though. Other than that I love Kit Kat and use my emojis constantly.
