    For those on AT&T, yes you are going to get 4.4.4. I can personally confirm this. Hopefully, T-Mobile users will as well, but I can not confirm that.

    And it has been confirmed by Motorola Executive Punit Soni that Android "L"ollipop is also coming to the Moto X. He just verified it on Google+ today.

    Just a quick update for those interested.

    I had the update yesterday (I'm in the UK) and they have improved the software for the camera! And I don't mean the UI, it looks to have actually improved image quality. I'm wondering if I'm just seeing things though, so when others get the update please take a snap and tell me I'm not going mad :)

    May have altered the post processing reducing the amount of heavy jpg compression it had before. Tinkering with that alone would improve quality :)

    I'll be getting my moto x next week so I'll take a snap or two before I check software update and update it to 4.4.4 :)

    That makes sense. Enjoy the phone when it turns up, it's a great bit of kit :)

    AT&T soak test for 4.4.4 on the Moto X is now underway. Will last for 1 week and then officially rolled out by AT&T.

    4.4.4 was available for my unlocked European model straight out of the box.

    How do you take screenshots on the moto x ?

    Yeah, us carriers are slow to update. I hate them.

    As for screenshots on Moto X, it is volume down and power button simultaneously.

    This phone has a great way of charming you.

    I agree! When it comes to 'bloatware' across the android system, those are probably the least useful but easily the most fun. I really enjoy them on the phone :)

    What do you think of the camera?

    It's OK / serviceable. It doesn't excel in anyway - but I haven't found it as truly appaling as some have said. The phones other strengths more than make up for it, but I find it about on par with the M8.
