Kyembe, 04 May 2014Jelly Bean is better than kitkatMy cell phone has Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and my tablet has KitKat 4.4.2. I see no substantial difference besides the new cartoonish icons and them replacing the stock messaging app with Hangouts.
Kitkat is kind of refreshment like Gingerbread was by it's time. I am proud Android user for about four years, use of the system had become a major habit for me because it was build by best way, most perspective and open source, unlike iOS and Windows Phone. Of course I don't use gapps, exept voice search (precisely, typing by voice recognition which is part of the application).
Google trying to push out the SD. Not sure how I feel. On one hand SD is cheaper and obviously swappable, on the other, I don't take my card out too often and on board memory is faster. As for the upgrades they're basically performance and bug fixes, nothing worth complaining about if you don't get them.

If your SoC is relatively modern then it will feature the HW acceleration that many of the new UI elements latter exploited.
In short, the latest versions of Android manage to perform better than GB (or at least on par) by taking advantage of hardware features (mostly GPU) that GB didn't actually use, all whilst improving greatly the usability and user experience of the system.
The only reason to remain in GB is if your phone/tablet has a truly ancient SoC or one that doesn't have proper drivers for the later versions of Android.

There has been various performance updates. 4.4 KitKat is light years faster than any 2.x rom. It's fast and has more features, though Flash support had to go.

I am very satisfied with my GB 2.3.6 on my Galaxy Ace s5830i .It works very well.
The only situation where I would buy a new phone will be- When my this phone is dead or lost. :)
I am really looking forward to Ubuntu phone or Mozilla OS.

We have a toggle to install apps from unknown sources, why not the same here. .. let people decide what they want.
also in built apps can access the write to the memory. .... how lame!!!
I'm definitely going to root my phone man.
Anonymous, 03 May 2014I just don't understand how you can still run Android 2.x in 2014....Still plenty of device with Ram less than 512 MB. Mine is one if them..
I have had Froyo for almost 2 years, I want a new phone so bad, any sugetions,??? Only Samsung iPhone sucks asz
xenox, 03 May 2014I rooted my s2 and installed kitkat... :P and it freezes and crashes everyday.
Thanks to brands like Motorola with super awesome and affordable MotoG and MotoX, we are seeing so many kitkats.
Glad that they are making nearly flawless phones. Waiting for MotoE to get launched and dominate the lower segment, by throwing off samsungs which are still minting money on jellybeans
