Sprint’s Moto X update brings camera enhancements, updated dialer application



Fashionably late, as usual, Sprint has at last started rolling out the much-anticipated Android 4.4.4 update to all its carrier-branded Moto X handsets currently located in the United States. In addition to the latest build of the open-source operating system, this upgrade also brings an updated dialer application, the means to pause video recording within the camera app, and the habitual bug fixes and stability improvements.

The full changelog for the build 212.44.28.en.US. update can be seen below:

  • Camera – Improved image quality – Improved camera image quality including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, improved photos in low light conditions using front camera.
  • Camera – Pause video recording – Added the ability to pause video recording with a convenient pause/resume button on the viewfinder.
  • Updated Phone dialer – Updated Phone dialer with a new graphical layout and colors to improve consistency and usability.
  • Motorola Alert application – New Motorola Alert application sends periodic alerts with your location to your selected contacts. Now available for download from the Google Play Store.

As is customary, the upgrade is being distributed in stages, but if you don’t feel like waiting for a notification confirming that its ready for your device, you can search for the update manually. To do this simply head into “Settings,” then “About Device,” and select “Check for Updates’ or ‘Software Updates.’ For more detailed instructions on how to update your device — click the source link below.
