So next big announcement is KITKAT something that a a quick look in play store for new theme and launcher wont solve..If its bug fixes that does not neccesitate a new O/S..If it few additions still no need for new naming scheme..Absolutly baffled and why Nexus fans exited by getting update first its not going to be something mind blowingly new and out of this world is it?

The teal(neonish blue) colour for battery , network and time used to look great, one good signature to stock android!! Not sure why they replaced it with boring white! It was always perfect

Yeah couple of icons and new theme typical android,,why do they need a new name for a theme change..


As for Nexus always get update first,update to what another new theme..If its bug fixes or serious malware other devices will get them and anyway they cant be that important updates because if it was serious it will be pushed to devices urgently..What updates are yoy expecting FIRST there is nothing exiting to update too.

What is the target of S4 to be sold? 100million, and how many units are they've been succesfully sold now? It's around 30-40million only, so 30-40% of the original target, it's poor for me.. what about the rest of the S4 units? Dump it as a garbage? Hahaha the 60million units to be recycle as the S5 source sounds like a good idea for me LoL

Those say they don't copy are hypocritical.

So next time think before you type such crap. Or is there a requirement for all iOS/iPhone fans to get a brainwash ? Oh btw Big News : Apple didn't invent tap water either. Sorry for rocking your world.

I like nexus devices, I like to read tech news everyday, But speaking about OS or gadget leaks actually makes the devices less valuable and the OS less important to me when the time comes to launch these devices or new OS. I wish I wake up someday and suddenly a notification icon tells me there is a new system update ready to install(without expecting such an update). That nice surprise would make me much happier and eager to explore the OS new features by myself. Do you agree?
