Popular smartphones based on Android KitKat OS

The Android KitKat 4.4 is the latest update of Google’s mobile operating system. This update is smooth and user friendly. The user interface is elegantly redefined, but this update has not changed drastically from its previous updates.

KitKat 4.4 does not provide many new features and there are very few changes in its design. But the update is faster than the previous updates and also more responsive. The management of home screen through KitKat 4.4 has become easier.

One of the biggest drawbacks of Android KitKat 4.4 is that it’s not available for a large number of Android devices. Released in October last year, the update has also not been able to grab good market share.

Google Nexus 5 is the first phone to feature Android KitKat 4.4. There are many new smartphones that feature Android KitKat 4.4.
