Earlier today, we commended Motorola on its efforts to work with the development community on the Moto X. Now, we’re going to congratulate them once again on a very expedient Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Droid Maxx/Ultra/Mini devices.
The update bumps up the software version to 19.5.3, and packs all the expected Android 4.4 goods. Curiously, while the Droid Mini is explicitly named on Verizon’s official Twitter page, only the Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx show up on their support docs. Unfortunately as we’ve seen from Verizon as of late, it also packs a little more bloatware. This comes in the form of a newly integrated NFL Mobile app, as well as the new “SSO client.”
The update is currently starting to roll out in the form of a staged OTA update, and the OTA has not yet been captured. But once it’s captured, we’ll update this post with the download link!
What are your thoughts on this update? Are you a fan of how fast Verizon and Motorola pushed this out, or are you more bummed that there is yet another piece of bloat? Let us know in the comments below, and share your thoughts in the update soak test thread!
