When is My Android Phone Getting the Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” Update?

kit kat kitkat logo
In the past, we have done our best to track the update situation for most of Verizon’s phones whenever a new major version of Android is released. We did it with both Ice Cream Sandwich and then Jelly Bean. Since Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” has been available for almost two months and has rolled out to a number of devices, it seemed like the perfect time to get a post going. We are going to do things a little different this time, though.
In the past, we stuck to a list of Verizon’s top devices for a number of reasons. But now that we’re seeing people jump to prepaid, T-Mobile, and other carriers quite regularly here at DL, we are expanding the list with Kit Kat. As devices from the four major carriers see updates to Kit Kat, we will add them to this list to hopefully create the ultimate collection of Android 4.4 updates. That’s a lofty goal, but I think we can manage. 
Below, you’ll find sections for each carrier, along with sub-sections for manufacturer and their accompanying devices that have been updated to 4.4. Assuming we have written about the update, we will try to drop a link to the details. We included an “Other” section to capture important phones from other carriers or that are unlocked/developer editions as well. And last, we aren’t going to update this post for every single point update past Kit Kat. For the most part, we will simply note when a device makes the jump to Kit Kat and then leave it at that.
Be sure to bookmark this one. We will be updating it over time.
