The Motorola DROID Smart Phones function on the Android 4.4.4.Kitkat OS upgrade

The Motorola Feedback Network was filled with comments coming from Motorola users who confirmed that their devices were functioning on the Android 4.4.4 Kitkat OS upgrade.

It appears that the mobile phone producers has decided to skip the 4.4.3 version of Kitkat altogether and has gone directly to the 4.4.4 Kitkat variant. The Motorola handsets that run on the latest Kitkat upgrade are Motorola DROID Ultra, Motorola DROID Maxx as well as Motorola DROID Mini.

Not only will the users of DROID smart phones receive the update, but also the users of Mote G, Moto E and Moto X. For the time being, the only gadgets that function on the latest upgrade of Android Kitkat OS comprise Google Play Edition and Nexus.

The new upgrade is going to bring a series of improvements of the phone’s performance, its camera and of the Visual Voicemail. The Android 4.4.4. Kikat OS also improves the security and the stability of the devices on which it runs.

Many expected for the Motorola to be among the first companies to use the new Android upgrade on its gadgets. M7 and M8 belonging to HTC will start running on Android 4.4.4.Kitkat OS in late July or in the first days of the month of August. It is said that the upgrade will run on other HTC devices starting with September. However, these are the only producers that have made it public that their devices run or are going to run on this new Android upgrade.

The free space needed for the Android 4.4.4 Kitkate OS to run is equal to 285 megabytes. The installation of the software is not quite a piece of cake. You need good internet connection, fully charged battery and patience.

In order to see if the new Android software is running on your phone, you need to verify the Settings options. Some Motorola possessor claimed that the new software could be found with the help of the upgrade called Over-the-Air. Users, who have not been given the upgrade yet, need not to worry since the upgrade does not roll out all at once. The notifications might be received during the next days.

How Android 5.0 Lollipop Takes Innovations from Others

One of the most puzzling parts of the designer sneak peak of Android 5.0, also called L type release, or even funnier Lollipop (or no matter how people will call it until Google reports it will be last called Lamington), was the number of characteristics which the new Android stock has taken from custom Roms, outsider applications and producer skins. While this is impeccably satisfactory, given the open source nature of Android and it might be seen as an enhancing of the main experience of Android users and their main needs, it also creates a lot of dissatisfaction among the  designers involved in the business of Android and its famous ”adds-on”. The question is if the latest Ansriod stock will be superior to all the other fighting for a share on the market?

Notification: Something Borrowed, Something New

I am a real enthusiast of small scale applications and popup, out-of-the-blue notices. This is the reason why I adore Hoverchat and the popup characteristic of Viber and its real-time messengers. I have truly come to enjoy Hellosms’ feature to drop down sneak peak of notifications and messages as soon as I receive them. In the designer’s teaser we have gotten a glimpse on how amazing the ”heads up” warnings are in the following adaptation of Android. Do you consider that Google’s exertion is superior to the current applications?

Let’s Talk About the Kill Switch

I have been paying a close attention to the lawfully obliged slaughter switch in cell phones for some time now. Therefore, you definitely know that I am a fanatic of this feature as well. Google now has Android Device Manager as a default area and remote wiping device. The gimmick will now be a center segment of the working system and not just a service for extra administration. A lot of different instruments are already accessible and it appears impossible that any of them will function to the same extent as the implicit adaptation.

Lockscreen Warnings

You might likewise know how excited I am of the lock screen notice applications, known as Dynamic Notifications or just Peek. I additionally love LED supervisors like Light Flow due to the fact that the less I have to do to get my gadget open the better it is. So having the capacity to get and react to my notices from my lock screen, Android has made an extraordinary move as I as my opinion. With the introduction of Android Wear and I will barely need to open my telephone whenever a message, a notification or a call comes down the way. Is it only my opinion but the current application has improved a lot?


I have talked before about the best multitasking applications for Android and its extraordinary efficient applications such as Javelin Browser and Link Bubble, so you know that any information on what eliminates useless application changing is going to grab my hawk eye sight. The latest Rolodex-looking, new setup of card-based applications, combined with more intelligent Google Search and dialer forecasts are all incredible aspects for me, again giving me independence from the not very comfortable solution of third parties.

Protection Settings

I am an enormous defender of protection and I eye each new consent demand with the utmost suspicion. Cyanogenmod’s security settings are a real gift and I would go nowhere without Permission Manager or the Permissions Observatory. In the approaching Android launce we will see implicit application security settings through Universal Data Controls and ”on-the-spot” asks for authorization, so you do not have to include any outsider applications, custom Roms or settings to take full control of your protection. Is Google just taking bits from the extraordinary plans of other companies?

Power Sparing Mode

Sometime ago I analyzed the modes used for sparing power on the Galaxy S5 as well as on the HTC One (M8) and I had the strong impression that this sort of alternative would soon be a standard for each Android gadget. That being said, Google I/O demonstrated my point as well, with the following adaptation of Android accompanying a stock battery sparing mode and battery history specialist for engineers (and unquestionably clients) to screen the battery utilization of their applications and upgrade (or out and out execute) the power consuming ones. Will producers let these gimmicks leak through their skins or stick with the one they created?

Google Adjustability

Other than having the capacity to get a pedometer on your Nexus 5 there is very little about the care for wellbeing in the current Android. Some of you will realize what a world-class runner I am and acknowledge exactly what number wellness applications I have managed to exhaust with the volume of biometric information I that I have sent to my telephone through all types of wearables, not to mention sensors or sweeps. Counting Google Fit in the following form of Android makes a great deal of these outsider choices unnecessary and sets up an enormous test to any semblance of S Health and LG Health. The question is who will manage to improve it?

Individual Unlocking

I am an advocate of cell phone security and I really dislike having to open my telephone each and every time I receive a signal from the otehrs. NFC labels or rings might be incredible for this purpose, with an obvious little change. To have my telephone know when I am in a place where phones should be at least on the vibe mode (like work) or to realize that it is me grabbing my telephone in light of my Bluetooth earphones or smartwatch makes it considerably simpler, particularly when it is inserted into the main system. Exactly how much of this is for the customer’s comfort and how much for pushing the wearables?


As a geek, I simply adore tweaking things and redoing framework settings to get the most perfect execution out of my cell phone. Most geeks have been running ART since it appeared a long time back. Unfortunately not every application was running legitimately and it was, obviously, a designer’s choice that was not exactly completed, regardless of the fact that it did rate up your execution altogether. Making ART the default runtime (which can as well compile your previous applications) makes it the ideal result. Did I specify that it additionally upholds the processing of 64-bit?

What is New about Themes?

I adore Cyanogenmod’s Themer motor and the numerous diverse custom launcher topics you can switch things up with. Android has a tendency to look truly dissimilar because of its open-source nature, so it is not generally simple to get a streamlined, amicable experience. By acquainting the Material topic with their applications, Google is giving a unified illustration, while Project Polymer makes it simpler for designers to make applications in the Material Design dialect through reusable web segments. This ought to definitely make the whole biological community better when it comes to consistency terms but I cannot help to wonder if Android will get closer to iOS?

What is your opinion on all these ”extra” gimmicks being incorporated with stock Android? Who is the best on the market when it comes to these smartphone characteristics? Is it Google, application producers and designers or the custom ROMs?
