Hi everyone, I have a Moto G as one of my Android phones and when I first got it, I was so impressed with the snappiness of the device and how capable it was for such a low price. The problem is, I received an OTA to 4.4.3 and everything has been awful since. Buggy everywhere and overall so much slower than 4.4.2. I know that Moto pulled the 4.4.3 update midway through rollout because of bugs that were fixed in 4.4.4....but I've never received it after updating to the tainted OS and have been stuck here ever since (3 or 4 months).

I know I should be posting on the Android forums, but Android Central is being terrible right now and I recall there being some Apple people here who also own Moto G's. If I never receive 4.4.4 then I would at least like to know if I can downgrade to 4.4.2 as I hate using it in the current state. I've tried all the tricks like resetting the framework etc and still no luck. I do not have a SIM in it currently but I received the previous OTA while only being on wifi too so I don't think that's a problem. My Moto G is the first generation XT1032 Global version purchased in the US. Hope someone can help, thanks!

Have you checked on XDA? Can you root it and revert back to 4.4.2.?
