expected, Google has immediately made available its promised Android 4.4.1 update to the Nexus 5. And instead of just being some generic maintenance release, this latest update to the Android 4.4 release fixes one of the most prevalent concerns about the smartphone's inadequacy in the photography department.
Nexus 5 seems to have stepped up a bit in terms of the camera, things were not quite as perfect as many had been hoping for. Overall the handset is able to take some decent pictures, but there are frequent complaints about the shutter speed. We have been playing with third-party camera apps and have seen some improvement there, but it appears as if Google is getting ready to push out a fix.
begin arriving for US Cellular Moto X users today, and well, it looks like the rollout has begun. Details coming from the Google+ page of Punit Soni confirm the update and also mentions that it will be rolling out to users in phases. The key here, we have yet to see any breakdown of how long the process will take.
Motorola, however sources are suggesting US Cellular Moto X users will have an update coming today. And just to clarify, this is the Android 4.4 Kit Kat update. Assuming the update rolls out as expected, that means US Cellular users would join a group that also includes AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. But again, this all goes back to an earlier promise from Motorola about how Kit Kat would arrive for all Moto X users within the next few weeks.
we’ve seen KitKat’s newest version before, we’re now seeing the newest version of Android on a few more devices. Unfortunately, we’re not seeing it on enough devices to get excited about the effect it could have.
Android 4.4 KitKat slowly starting to eat up some space as well.
Play Store and it looks like yet another has arrived. Though, while this latest joins a rather large group, there may be some reason to pay attention. The app is called Kit Kat Launcher+ and is said to have been compiled straight from AOSP. And in addition, while some launchers bring an overabundance of features and options, this one is a bit simpler.
Kit Kat updates has begun. This time, according to details coming from the @HTCUSA Twitter account, the Android 4.4 rollout has begun for Unlocked and Developer Editions of the HTC One. With the Google Play edition having gotten the Kit Kat update last week, this sort of rounds things out for the special editions.
A vulnerability has been discovered in Nexus phones, which could render them useless. By sending a particular type of SMS message, the phone is forced to reboot and, in some instances, reconnect to the mobile data service. With that, users may not know their device hasn’t reconnected, essentially making it useless for a period of time.
