Moto X Custom, Back, Closeup

Yesterday, Verizon’s Moto X snagged the latest version of Android, and today T-Mobile’s model of the Motorola flagship is graduating to Android 4.4 KitKat as well. The Google-owned smartphone maker announced the news today, updating an earlier post on its official blog.

Android 4.4 KitKat brings a handful of new features and a streamlined version of the software designed to use up less memory. The upgraded OS includes a redesigned phone app with search built right into the dial-pad screen, new photo gallery effects and controls, a new messaging app that integrates Hangouts and SMS, Emoji, new camera controls, and instant access to Google Now.

We’ve always been big fans of Motorola’s flagship handset, but there’s never been a better time to pick up the Moto X. The 4.7-inch smartphone has somehow jumped to the head of the Android 4.4 KitKat line to receive the new update before Google’s own Nexus 7 (2013) tablet. Check out our full review here.
