The Motorola Moto G is such a kick ass phone, especially for the price tag Motorola put on it. When you’re buying devices for these kind of prices, updates can be hit or miss and, usually, more miss than hit. This certainly is not the case with Moto G seeing how it’s already getting an update to 4.4.2 today and earlier than promised.
There’s not really much more to say than that folks! If you’re looking to get a mid to high-end phone for a low-end phone price tag, and it’s looking like there’s going to be timely updates, the Moto G is a no brainer. The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is for both U.S. and global versions of the Moto G.
