This week will see the T-Mobile Moto X, U.S. and Brazilian Moto G and U.S. and Canadian Moto E units receive the Android 4.4.3 update. Here’s what you lucky folks will receive with this fresh update:

  • Improved dialer with a new interface and new colors to enhance consistency and usability.
  • Several stability, framework, security fixes.
  • Enhancements to power profile capabilities.
  • Improved camera image quality for Moto X including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, and improved photos in low light conditions using front camera. 
  • For Moto X and Moto G, pausing for video recording with a convenient pause/resume button on the viewfinder.
  • Motorola Alert in this update for Moto X and Moto G users. This new app helps give peace of mind by sending periodic messages to the contacts you choose.
