5 Reasons to Upgrade to Android KitKat 4.4

Leave a Comment

With a bunch of new features added, it would be an intelligent decision to opt for Android 4.4 KitKat. If you thought that third party Cloud storage apps and improved Google Now contextual cards are the only features in the Android 4.4 KitKat, you probably need to read further.

1.) Resolution switching by adaptive playback
This might be a minor feature but is important altogether. It might have occurred in the past that when you watched videos, the video quality fluctuated between different resolutions. This would be a thing of the past with the new Android 4.4 KitKat. Unlike the past, the video will not exit or return to HD mode. Instead, the quality and resolution of the video will get increased.

To make a better comparison, you can think about YouTube. In YouTube when one switches between different views modes, the resolution gets increased. Similar is the case with Android 4.4 KitKat and the whole experience is simply amazing.

2.) Screen recordings with Android 4.4 KitKat
Consider the scenario when you intend to showcase something that is happening on your device. In a common scenario, one might need to resort to using a mirror. At times, one might need to use another camera to capture the details.

However as the Android 4.4 KitKat supports screen recordings, one can record all the happenings that occur on the screen. The videos get recorded in the MP4 format and will remain accessible for you to check and compare.

3.) Photo Editor Feature
With a range of image editing tools available online, one often gets confused as to which the right tool for any given task. A simplified version of Photo Editor is available on Android 4.4 KitKat and one can adjust images in the meanwhile.

Highlights, contrasts and shadows can be adjusted with the photo editor feature. Effects as vignettes can also be added to improve the overall image effects. In situations when one is online, options as Instagram can be chosen but when offline, the Photo Editor is a viable option that can be explored.

4.) Loudness enhancer
Android 4.4 KitKat comes with a loudness enhancer. The loudness enhancer enables one to set up a custom profile that helps you modify the EQ settings and enhance the audio experience for voice recordings and phone calls. This feature is very relevant in scenarios when one is at a place having a noisy background.

The call reception however depends upon the signal strength; however one fact that is amply clear is that the call reception quality will increase for sure.

5.) Unlimited Home Screen feature
In all the previous versions of Android devices, one had a limited number of options when it came to home screens that could be decorated with folders, widgets and shortcuts. However, the Android 4.4 KitKat allows the user to have unlimited number of home screens. It might be a reality that it is not possible for anyone to utilize the every available feature of Android 4.4 KitKat to its maximum but it would be worthy to have features than not having the same.

Go for Android 4.4 KitKat and experience the difference for yourself.
