Head out to our Official Post of the Next Generation LG – Google Nexus 5

Android 4.4 KitKat | Lock Screen


So far and so forth we see some major User Interface Overhauls. With pixel optimization very much considered on the Operating System. The usage of the high density of pixels is going to make this version a great reign over Google’s Android.

Now we find something Interesting: From top to bottom we see major changes. From Icons to text and from wallpaper to the navigational button to Unlock the screen. You can also observe the Halo circle at the bottom, which meaningfully stands for an OS supporting multiple users and accounts.In the Bottom Right we can clearly observe a Camera Shortcut which always comes in handy when launching a camera.

The Notification bar is not only gone towards Transparent effects but it has been nuanced on black only towards the end. The icons now have homogeneous color i.e White Icons.


It has been witnessed that selecting the camera and dragging it to the left makes it launch the Camera Application. However, launching several applications is also easy by swiping left or right and also used to view widgets. The image shows the correct gesture above.

Android 4.4 KitKat | Launcher

The main thing noticed here is the addition of a New Launcher Button which is no no longer the white border outside but a transparent fill inn. In addition to this, there is no Border horizontal Line which we fancied on the ICS Lanucher that divides the QuickPants! Game for iOS Review. Read more ... » launch apps from the Base apps.

The apps on the Quick Launch Bar seems to have a redefined set of shape and icons, notice how flat they appear on first looks their placement matters a lot now as they too are contending against their own version of OS such as HTC Sense and SamsungSamsung. Read more ... » TouchWiz


From the image we can see a total number of six-homescreens which may have the same animationOptical Illusions That Makes Your Brain Think. Read more ... » scheme. Notice that at startup a user shall have a single homescreen which can be brought upto six with placing widgets on them.

Android 4.4 KitKat | App Drawer

The Application Drawer seems profoundly modified that has a very bleak and optimistic look. User do not have that Black Screen as their background, while scrolling apps anymore.There is a very pleasant Transparent Background in the Drawer which gives it an amazing luxurious look and feel while scrolling.


We can easily spot the difference in the upcoming Android 4.4 KitKat OS that the app drawer is now customizable and user friendly than before. The Apps are now more Large and Wide with an array of 4×5 and everything is on full display now. With the removal of Tab Titles such as Applications and Widgets, we can automatically figure out the difference between them.

Android 4.4 KitKat | Features

Google Now

Google now stands as the fresh update to the existing user input platform. Google Promises to give their best Google Now experience in their upcoming Nexus 5. Google aims to give in more card information and a better UI of the application with the webpages loading on the same app. Just like the features in the Moto X.

Now Google is much more responsive. Just simply say “Ok Google” within Google Now to make a new search. Now Google is accessible in two ways: the first is the classic swype upward from the navigation bar, the second is through one swype to left starting with the last homescreen left.

Google Search, instead, you can start by saying “Ok Google” directly from the homescreen.

Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts application update will allow it to be used as a single co-related app for messaging via Text and on the Web. This will allow the user to access a single seamless app with little efforts to send a text or to have a hangout session at the same time.

Google Boot Animation - Display & Colors

This is the presentation section where we see some extra high quality color schemes and great pixel density usage of the software.


The Boot Animation has changed to a better perspective with the same homogeneous loading basic colour circles of the Google Enterprise. Google has now put their efforts in creating what suites the eye  after being done with what satisfies the mind.


In addition to being much lighter in weight, it is also much faster than the Nexus 4Google Nexus 5. Read more ... »




There seems to be an image stabilization system, which helps a lot when we hand shaking during shooting. I do not know if it is an optical image stabilization (OIS in this case) or digital. The fact is that it works very well. The quality should not differ from that of the Nexus 4 so blatantly.


So we can say now that we hold a good thought about what we are going to expect on the next generation of Android Operating System which is hopefully going to initiate from Google NexusGoogle Nexus 5. Read more ... » 5 or Nexus 4S. The Report also wisely notes that everything is in Beta Phase and other changes are probable on roll out of the official version of 4.4 KitKat. This post holds the truth to the fact that the next Gen OS will have UI overhauls as well as display upgrades.
