For a budget smartphone, the Moto G sure has taught the competition how to take care of customers who might not want to spend too much on a smartphone, by offering mid-range specs and an ultra quick update to the newest version of Android. The unlocked variant and most carrier models of the Moto G have already received the update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and now the much-anticipated update has begun rolling out to the Verizon Moto G.
The Moto G is already a quick and fast device for its price, and the performance should further increase after the KiKat update, along with a reduction in memory usage. Other features the Moto G will now be able to take advantage of are wireless printing support, a immersive mode for running apps in full screen mode, an improved file picker that integrates various cloud services along with the internal storage, and many of Motorola’s new apps that recently hit the Play Store, like the impressive gallery application.
Expect to see the update’s notification come knocking on your phone’s screen before the week is over, and thank Verizon for helping Motorola keep its promise of quick updates once again.
