Well that was fast: Moto G Android 4.4.2 update already landing


We were all ready to get out hands on the Moto G sometime in January, as Motorola finally made the crazy-good-deal smartphone available to shoppers in the US, when out of the blue, Motorola started selling the Android smartphone in late November. This early arrival was definitely appreciated, but it didn’t come without cost; as we noted last week in our Moto G review, instead of the KitKat we were hoping for, Motorola instead shipped the Moto G with Android 4.3. That was very much not the end of the world, and we knew it would just be a matter of time before an update came out. Well as things turn out, we hardly had to wait at all, and today see Motorola get started with its Moto G Android 4.4.2 release.

That means all the camera, dialer, emoji, and UI improvements we’ve come to expect from Android 4.4, hitting your Moto G beginning today. Both versions of the handset – with international or with US-focused 3G bands – are seeing their own respective updates arrive.

We know Motorola likes to say how it’s not getting any special treatment from Google, but however strongly you believe that, this is still a pretty darn impressive turnaround time.
