Android 4.4.3 continues roll out to Nexus, Google Play devices and now Moto devices

Android 4.4.3 continues roll out to Nexus, Google Play devices and now Moto devices As of writing, Google is continuing their rollout of the latest version of Android, 4.4.3 KitKat.
The OTA update is available for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Google Play versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One M7, HTC One M8, and Sony's Z Ultra. Motorola also announced it is available for the T-Mobile Moto X, the unlocked Moto G and the Moto E.

While the update does not offer any truly game changing features, it does improve the dialer significantly, and overhauls the interface of the dialer, as well, with new colors and usability that should make it user friendly. As a Nexus 5 owner, I can attest the update was mainly useless, but the dialer is more usable now.

In addition, the update is supposed to offer bug fixes, and stability improvements including a fix for the extra battery drain attributed to camera use.

Hopefully for other Android owners, now that Google's rollout is almost complete, other carriers and OEMs can begin rolling out the update themselves.

Samsung does not update their older phones that would work much better with Kit Kat. I suggest to stay far away from Samsung and either buy from Google or go to Apple. My Galaxy Note works so lousy with Jelly Bean I want to toss it out the window !

It would be nice to see it hit the LG G2 phones SOON, even though we just got 4.4.2. Hopefully with 4.4.3. it would fix the broken audio that was created with the newest 4.4.2 OTA update on the now not very fun to use (after update to KitKat) G2... (on T-Mobile)

I got 4.4.3 on my Nexus 7 (2013 two days ago. It might have been me, but it seemed to run a bit faster on things like screen switching between apps etc. Maybe the reset cleared some stuff.
