Android 4.4.4 rolls out for Verizon's Motorola Moto X

Android 4.4.4 rolls out for Verizon's Motorola Moto X
Android 4.4.4 is being pushed out by Verizon, for the Motorola Moto X. Now that you've stopped celebrating, check out the changelist. You will see an improvement in the quality of pictures taken with the camera. Pictures snapped under fluorescent lighting will also have better quality. Filming a video? You can now stop filming and resume shooting later from where you left off. A pause/resume button will be found on the "viewfinder". The photos will also show an enhanced dynamic range. And of course, the dialer will feature new colors and layout to improve consistency and usability.

Since the update is being sent OTA on a staggered basis, don't panic if you don't receive the update today. Give it some time, and be patient. If you're just dying to get Android 4.4.4 on your Verizon Moto X, you can try to coax it out of your phone by going to About Phone > Check for update.

As usual, when downloading and installing an OTA update you should make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. No sense in using your precious data for this. And have your battery at least 50% charged. You don't want to be in the middle of the process when your battery goes down.

About time Verizon. The international and stateside Moto G has had this forever.

I'll wait for the verdict from the lab rats, before downloading. I already have enough problems with this piece of junk.

i'm sure you guys waiting for the update are all wondering if the dialer improvements equal Google Dialer and the answer is no unfortunately, the icon hasn't even changed. :/

Using it on AT&T/Cricket. I sure hope this latest update solves the camera exposure problems especially with flash in low light once and for all. I won't hold my breath though.. Thank God I found several camera apps with exposure settings that solve this problem. Camera FV-5 is one well worth the money. I almost went back to the G only because of the camera. Now I love the X. Really like the voice commands from sleep. Besides just another update for the camera actually though. Moto needs a whole new camera app, That includes manual up and down exposure settings & a self timer.
