Android 4.4 KitKat now rolling out to US Cellular Moto X

Android 4.4 KitKat now rolling out to US Cellular Moto X
Motorola has been extremely fast in pushing out the Android 4.4 KitKat update to the various models of the Moto X. It has been pretty impressive actually. Now, Motorola is closing in on the finish line by starting the rollout of the KitKat update for the US Cellular model of the Moto X. The updates began, surprisingly, with Verizon before Google had even started the KitKat rollout to the Nexus 4. Updates followed soon after for the T-Mobile and AT&T models of the Moto X. That only left two more CDMA models of the Moto X to get the update: US Cellular and Sprint. With the US Cellular rollout starting, all that is left is the Sprint model. 

As we've heard with the previous rollouts, the majority of the update is just the standard set of Android 4.4 features, including the new dialer, UI tweaks, Hangouts with SMS support, and new photo editing tools. The only additions on the Motorola side of the software are improvements to the camera, including new slide controls for focus and exposure.

Sprint and Motorola seem to be the worst combination when it comes to updates. the Photon Q is still on ICS while literally every other phone Motorola released that year is on Android 4.1.

The Photon Q got it's 4.1 update in April; Granted, it was far behind any of the other 2012 Motorola models, but it's there.

Love the homescreen look. If only it's still consist of dark background and light text... Or google can give us choice between dark theme or light theme.

Wow, Motorola is damn fast on updating their phones. Lucky Moto X owners. While my Xperia Z is still waiting for Android 4.3 update, where's the update, Sony?

4.3!?! *Screams all the Note 2 owners* I don't mind if Samsung take A LITTLE longer to update because they have a lot to screw up on this thing. I don't think we're getting 4.4 though. :(

I think you guys will get the 4.4 update because we all know that Samsung is good at updating their phones, it's just that they mess up their updates sometimes.
