Android-Google-Play-Edition

The Android 4.4.3 train has no signs of slowing down. After hitting several Nexus devices and Motorola announcing its release schedule earlier today, the Google Play editions of the Galaxy S4 and HTC One (M7) are joining in on the fun. Owners of these special edition handsets are slowly but surely receiving an over-the-air update that moves their device to Android 4.4.3.

While there are other Google Play edition devices, like the Sony Z Ultra, it’s unknown if or when these products will receive the latest version of Mountain View’s mobile operating system. As for those of you who are rocking the standard versions of the M7 and GS4, hopefully this is a sign of things to come, but something tells us that HTC and Samsung will most likely focus on their current flagships before updating legacy handsets.

If you happen to be the proud owner of a Google Play edition HTC One M7 or Samsung Galaxy S4 and you’ve already installed the update, let us know how it’s treating you and your phone.

    I installed the update on my HTC One M7 GPE this morning. After rebooting I immediately noticed an issue with the display showing black lines randomly, almost as if the screen itself was damaged. The bars come and go so the phone is still usable, but it’s pretty annoying. I am yet to see this reported anywhere so am unsure if the issue is with my phone or the custom recovery or something.

    Will put up with it for now and wait a few days to see if this is reported elsewhere, otherwise it looks like I’ll be flashing 4.4.2 to see if the issue disappears.

  3. this is why I hate Google and android, I bought a Nexus 7 (new edition) from google play store and was promised to receive android updates first and quickly. Kit-kat took forever and barely changed anything and still haven’t gotten 4.4.3. Google really needs to get its act together on software update delivery

  4. I have a Nexus 5 that I bought from the Play Store and am still waiting…..
