From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
AT&T Pushes Android 4.4 KitKat to Moto X
Good Guy Motorola—and surprisingly stand-up individual AT&T! We were initially quite shocked to see the Verizon variant of the Moto X become the first non-Nexus device to receive an official taste of Android 4.4 KitKat. This was an incredibly timely release, as it even beat out the official OTA for the Google Nexus 4, as well as both Google Play edition devices. Not too long after, we saw the T-Mobile variant follow suit with its own KitKat update.
Now, we’ve gotten word that the update to Android 4.4 KitKat is officially available for the AT&T variant of the Moto X, skipping the previously rumored soak test phase. Just like the Android 4.4 updates previously seen on the other variants of the Moto X, this update is for the most part quite similar to stock Android. There are a few Moto X-specific OEM additions, but nothing to make you wonder if it’s really Android you’re looking at. Chief among these additions is a renovated camera app that has gesture controls for focus and exposure.
Have you already updated your Moto X to KitKat? If so, how do you like it? How do you feel about Motorola’s extremely timely updates? Let us know in the comments below!
