moto x vs galaxy s4 aa design s4 back in hand

Late to the party, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular are now reportedly pushing out Android 4.4 KitKat to the Samsung Galaxy S4. Confirmation of the update on Big Red’s network comes from user sightings, while the latter comes directly from US Cellular’s support pages.

So what’s new here? As we’ve seen with the other KitKat updates for the Galaxy S4, not a whole lot. You can definitely expect several Android 4.4 goodies like immersive mode and better cloud printing support, but there’s also likely at least a few minor Samsung and carrier specific changes. For example, all GS4 KitKat updates so far have brought new KitKat-style white status bar icons, as well as fair amount of bug fixes.

If you have yet to receive a notification prompting you to download the update, you can always check manually for the update by going to Settings>About phone>Software update. For those that have received the update, any other noteworthy changes or issues with the KitKat upgrade? If so, tell us about it in the comments below.
