yes the Xperia SP will get the 4.4.2 update around mid of July...
both device are equally good but in moto g you will not have a SD card expansion slot... that is only 16gb of memory..
also the battery backup of xperia sp is pretty good ...
and also the GPU is better as moto g run on adreno 305 gpu and the xperia sp runs on adreno 320
best of luck !!!

No the SP has not been confirmed to get kitkat update, currently we are in limbo with regards to any announcement.

We have KitKat available for the device however not on an official Sony ROM so it depends if you're into flashing and so on.

The SP despite its age is a lovely device for the money.

Install Sony PC companion and upgrade your device to latest firmware.

Then try Sony Update Service, to reset device to factory settings (on Windows 8/8.1 you must run SUS in compatibility mode for Windows 7). After that use this app http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2783157 to gain root, download SuperSU from PlayStore, update libs. Reboot phone, download link2sd and get rid of bloatware.
