Motorola rolls out Android 4.4.3 KitKat, makes Moto X $100 cheaper
The upgrade is set to reach the T-Mobile Moto X, Moto G (purchased online in US and retail in Brazil, including the 4G LTE version) and Moto E (purchased online in US), starting this week. Here is what the update includes.
Motorola says the distribution it is rolling out improves the image quality of the Moto X cameras (users can expect "better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, and improved photos in low light conditions using front camera"), a pause/resume button on the camera viewfinder meant for video recording, and Motorola Alert for Moto X and Moto G.
The update also adds an improved dialer, which features a new user interface and colors, enhancements related to power profiles, as well as the usual slew of improvements and fixes related to stability and security.
