Although Google has announced Galaxy Nexus will not be updated officially to Android 4.4 KitKat that was released last week, thankfully we have great developers who have already ported Android 4.4 to Galaxy Nexus.
Currently available for GSM or Verizon Galaxy Nexus, Android 4.4 KitKat ROM brings lots of new features, here’s Top 10 features you can expect from KitKat:
Basically, you will benefit from Android 4.4 KitKat as it has been designed to run faster/smoother on older device such as the Galaxy Nexus on top of the new features like “OK Google”, SMS/MMS in Hangouts app, QuickOffice, and lots more.
The only bug currently is with rotation graphics a bit dithered but even with these earlier beta versions of Android 4.4, you should have no problem testing out all the new features while using as a daily driver.
Definitely, you can get it now so try it over the week(end) and do let me know what you think of the latest Android 4.4 KitKat!
