Can a developer using moto g not a nexus device install the Android L?
omg! icons and buttons looks ugly as hell... thi is extraordinarily disappointing..
[deleted post]iOS 7 looks like the original iOS 1, and in turn looks like the original mac's OSX, which iOS is based on.. OSX design and architecture.
No idea why they compare iOS 7 to Windows titles.. both have no relations.
They even destroyed what kitkat had. I mean look at those buttons from down. They are ugly like hell.

I wonder if someday, all OEMs will use the same stock Android. Like windows, all cpu and laptops can upgrade to Windows 7, 8, 8.1 no matter their specs and OEMs.
Sony, samsung, LG, HTC and others, no need to make your own UI. I like stock Android so much better than others. It's simple.
If OEM wants to add some goodies, just add some preinstalled apps, although I don't like them.
Every time I bought a new phone, with any brands, I always debloat the system apps, and change the framework to look like stock Android.
AnonD-191847, 25 Jun 2014Very dissapointed... It only has features useful only to stock Android +the battery and Art on... moreAs iOS copied Android in iOS 8,now Google copied Carplay and Healthkit and Apple tv with Android auto and Google fit and Google tv.
Google copied a lot from Apple as Apple copied a lot from them.Android auto and Google Fit and Google tv are a copy of Apple's Carplay Nd Healthkit Nd Apple tv.
Make any digital UI flat, I bet you'll always find a guy who'll say that the UI is copied from windows.

Google took 3 years to craft that 3 bottom buttons? OMG..
.. Man please PLEASE, introduce a BETTER WAY to navigate android on tablet please.
Well it might look short but in fact in terms of overall volume the new android version is definitely big, changing from dalvik to ART is like swapping skeleton, it is that big of a change, and this will really be noticeable to the end users specially those that don't invest in flagships.
The next android would be Lollipop? That would be match exactly with this...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-xhpbjiDGM
Those who think this update is boring CAN search through internet for all new features when you know nothing about new update.
Gsmarena's infromation are not updated and their support is realy poor.
Android L is biggest android update in past 6 years! Just search for all new features.
Each of [L]ittle changes on android [L] are real big changes in whole system.
I can't believe such a huge change on android is going to happen. Can't wait till tomorrow morning for developers version of the rom.
AnonD-238148, 26 Jun 2014Wow Just search for new interface on XDA. That's Minimal and amazing. I love the new interface... moreThey have black theme as well where the white portions are rendered in black.
