    I'm on Verizon so I'm not holding my breath for an update but for the rest of you on att, T-Mobile, and sprint do you think that you will get a ui update when you get 4.4? New icons, transparent app drawer, and the like?

    Thats hard to answer . It really depends on what the manufacturers due with 4.4. I doubt that Samsung, LG, or HTC will change their icons. I doubt they are going to revamp Touchwiz, or Sense just to show they are working with 4.4 Some small visual changes may take effect, but Samsung has been doing so well with their Touchwiz UI why would they want to change that.

    Well, I for one hope this device is 3rd on the list for updates regardless of carrier. 1st being Nexus, and 2nd being Google Edition devices.

    If you are on Verizon, its dosen't matter. If we get the 4.4 update I'll be shocked.

    In a perfect world, Verizon hasn't pushed the camera update because they are going to release the 4.4 update with the camera improvements baked in before anyone else.


    I shouldn't even dream like that. -__-

    According to their video of the moto x: it would appear they are trying to go with a nexus feel and that Google has a big hand of influence and although it won't be updated as fast as the nexus as they said it should be shortly after.

    And if they really want to market a phone for the average person that just works well a phone that just works doesn't do anything fancy in my opinion but gets updates to the latest os when they come out till the end of its life span. And maybe longer.

    And since the os is bear minimum with small added features which almost appear to he just apps I would say it's not very hard for them to push out quick updates.

    I was incredibly impressed at just how quickly the camera update was pushed out by carriers. I'm (perhaps foolishly....) optimistic that without much carrier bloat, or vendor bloat, that similar deployment times will happen as Moto actually updates the device.

    I'm still waiting for 4.3, but if they just jump to 4.4 I'd be a pretty happy camper

    Heard this as well. I had wondered if they would skip 4.3 (why bother). Looks like they did?

    Really? and my S3 is already being tested with 5.0. Buddy of mine that works for Samsung told me so... Smells like...

    There is not evidence anywhere that moto will get any special treatment for updates. Both Google and Moto have said explicitly that they will not get the updates early and thus will be on the same time frame as everyone else. No mater how much the moto x looks stock, i can guarantee you it is not under the hood. Moto has to take the time to develope and optimize code for hardware and get all of the unique features(and carrier bloat) working.

    I am afraid that anyone that is looking for updates much quicker than anything that is not a nexus or GPe device is going to be disappointed. I mean sense the moto x has a finished 4.3 build already and everything...
