KitKat rolling out for the nexus 4. Anyone got it yet.?
Got my 4.4 on my N7 (2012) last night.
Am a little underwhelmed. No transparent bars, no google now from left, no groovy new wallpaper. Think maybe all these things for Nexus 5 only?
Is much smoother though. Few icons have changed.
Think notification bar is now supposed to be grey all the time. The light blue holo effect now gone.Posted 4 years ago
mazz – just install the APK from this link and since you have the new search app in KitKat, you’ll get the transparent bars and stuff:Posted 4 years ago
Up and ruining on the N10, there isn’t much different and no transparent bars. The apps launch faster and things seem smoother but that’s about it.
I can see how it will work well on older devices, it’s just a shame that there seems to be a problem with putting a new room on my sensation. A custom 4.4 room would be great.Posted 4 years agoneilsonwheelsMember
If anyone has updated to 4.4 and you want it to look and feel like the nexus 5 then here is a link to the launcher APK that is used on the nexus 5. I have installed it on my nexus 4 and 7 and it works like a dream.
Edit, didn’t see the link above in a previous post.Posted 4 years ago
I accepted the hangouts thing but I’m not really sure what it offers over normal SMS. Am I missing some killer feature??
Hangouts SMS is pretty standard as far as I can tell, I dare say there will be some interfacing ability with other Google stuff tho. One good Hangouts feature, if you have front facing camera, you can do video calls with multiple people and share screens with each other. saying that, I’ve never done it on phones, but it works well on the laptop.Posted 4 years ago
Visually it’s similar. When someone digs into the details, there’s a lot changed!Posted 4 years agodeviantMember
Got my OTA update last night. Visually not much difference but I wasn’t expecting a massive change, android has been very good since ‘ice cream sandwich’… subsequent updates have simply refined the OS.Posted 4 years ago
It does seem kinder on the battery which ties in with Google wanting Kit-Kat to be able to run on devices with only a small amount of RAM.paladinSubscriber

On a Nexus 7 ota at midnight it simply seems smoother. A few wierd things when I try to upload files from a Garmin to strava. Have to go in via different menu. Otherwise just the same. so far
Got a nexus7, got a garmin, how do I upload from the garmin with the nexus?
Incidentally, got KitKat and now my OSmapfinder can’t operate, Google working on the glitch apparently…Posted 4 years ago
