  • My girlfriend will be delighted she loves her little turquoise moto G with flip cover Posted via the Android Central App
  • Isn't that ironic. I sold mines this past Sunday lol. With T-Mobile now and had no need for it. Posted via...The One
  • Hey! You sold it! Hopefully, you got some decent coinage for it.
  • No I didn't lol. It's only like $100 new, I've even heard one guy in my area say he got one for $70 new so I sold mines for $40 including a bugdroid cruzerlite case minus the charger as I bent it by accident. My wife has one but switched to sprint a while back and has a LG G2, I'm gonna probably put hers on Craigslist too. Gas $ or lunch $ is all in really expecting lol. They're so cheap now. I paid $145 new. Talk about a loss Posted via...The One
  • I know the feeling, trust me, haha. But, at least, you were able to get something for it. Hopefully, in the future, Android handsets will be able to retain their value better and longer.
  • I got the 4.4.4 update on my S4 last night. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Um..... So did the Moto G. Posted via Android Central App
  • It's amazing to me that a Boost Mobile handset gets the latest update before my flagship phone. I hope Moto keeps this up. Posted via Android Central App
  • Yup Posted via Android Central App
  • Now could they get the moto x on boost? Posted via Android Central App
  • good idea. I'd definitely get it if boost started selling the first gen moto x. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Good guy Moto. Posted via Android Central App (Moto G)
  • I'd be delighted if they sold the LTE version, Sprint's 3G is like 2G on every other network.
  • Sprint doesn't sell sprint doesn't sell the moto g 4g lte so Boost won't. It's GSM only Posted via...The One
  • It would be nice if they sold the first generation moto X or the new 5 inch moto G. She's at home on wifi most of the time so the lack of Lte doesn't matter to her. Either way she is in love with the moto line and rightly so. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I think they're gonna sell the new moto g 3g only. Give them a few months. If they would have sold the 2013 moto x I would probably still be with boost lol Posted via...The One
  • Its 11:45pm as I type this..Has anyone with a Moto G on Boost actually gotten this update yet?
  • I got my update yesterday but my phone didn't alert me, a friend told me it was available so I did a manual check at system updates and it was there. Make sure you're on WIFI if not it will take forever and eat up your Data. Overall a good update 7 out of 10.
  • Downloading it now about time Posted via Android Central App
  • I have the moto g on boost and just got the update today. Awesome
  • I just got the 4.4.4 update and it is working as expected. The phone dialer was a great improvement to me.
