The Moto G Android 4.4.2 OTA update is now being pushed to Verizon users. The Moto G was introduced by the Big Red last month and most of the prepaid users were happy to see the price of $100 which made save $79 of the unlocked GSM model.
Unfortunately, Moto G’s launch at Verizon came along with two bad news: the device only worked with Verizon’s prepaid network and it run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, with no sign of KitKat roll out.
The GSM Moto G received the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update back in December, which probably annoyed a couple of Verizon users. Fortunately, the US carrier is now pushing the Android 4.4.2 OTA update to its Moto G owners. As usual, we are looking at a staged roll out, so it may take a few days until it hits your device. Of course, you can always check for the update manually under Settings > About phone > System update > Check for updates.
Except for the Motorola-specific improvements, like the refreshed gallery and the latest Moto apps (that were also released in Google Play), the Android 4.4.2 update for Moto G is also bringing KitKat goodies such as transparent status and nav bars, white status icons, immersive mode, and printing option.
In case you forgot, I remind you that the Moto G boasts about a 720p 4.5-inch IPS LCD screen, quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 5 MP rear-facing camera, 1.3 MP secondary camera, 1 GB RAM, 8/16 GB storage, and 2,070 mAh battery.
With these specs and the latest Android version aboard, the Moto G makes the perfect device, especially for those of you who don’t want to pay too much on a smartphone. Only $99? Well, the deal’s even sweeter.
