Hands-on with Android 4.4 KitKat on the Nexus 4 (video)


Android 4.4 KitKat is the long-awaited upgrade to Google’s Android operating systems for smartphones and tablets. Although it doesn’t bring huge changes like many of us had hoped, the modifications are elegant and profound.

Finally, the waiting is over, and Kitkat has been officially released, but unless you already have a Nexus 5 in hand, you probably don’t have it. Luckily there are some builds out there that you can put on your own device, like we did with our Nexus 4, to get the KitKat experience there. Hit the play button, and let’s go hands-on with Android 4.4 KitKat on the Nexus 4.

As you can tell, the changes aren’t in-your-face, but help make the whole experience just a little bit smoothing, and a lot more convenient. We’re hoping for an  official OTA release of KitKat for the Nexus 4 in the coming few days. Stay tuned to Pocketnow for links and instructions on how to do that.
