Android 4.3 unveiled with improved multi-user support - read the full textAndroid 4.3 has officially been announced it's been in the wild on Google Play Edition devices for a while, but the unveiling was put off for today. So, what's new? Well, 4.3 is a minor upgrade so it brings minor improvements and refines the user experience, rather than delivering game-changing...

I have not watched the presentation myself, but I did see a photo of a slide that also said "dial pad autocomplete". I assume this means the crappy AOSP dialer now supports smart dialling and is not so teribble any more? Apart from this, not a lot new.

Still lags..not as smooth as WP and iOS..
Buggy, draggy and laggy.. My Xperia Z lags like nobody's business after 4.2.2 update.. The only reason i'm still using android is because of Sony.

What a worthless update, changes nothing and forces OEMs to do extra work pushing it, perhaps at cost of future bigger and better updates. I'm very disappointed.

People can't stand the lack of essential apps and games in WP, its a prison OS due to all the limitation in it and now the lag and stutters!

First of all no one's experienced the final product in real life yet. And I wouldn't call it amazing.

However if Google delivers an improved user experience as promised here and in leaks so far than kudos to them! Making Android smoother and more efficient is the best thing the can do at the moment. Android is already the most feature rich platform by fare so improving what's under the hood is the way to go atm.
