Why the fuck is KitKat so much better ?

>> No.54136984

It isn't.

>> No.54137006

im still on it
i dont think im gonna upgrade until my galaxy s3 breaks

>> No.54137019

because everything else was different for the sake of being different
there was no real fucking purpose to it

like windows 10

>> No.54137050

It isn't in the slightest except the motivation bar. Quit being such a rebellious piece of shit. I bet you have Windows XP installed you piece of crap.

>> No.54137088


for some reason later android intentionally removed alot of drivers for devices in favor of "universal" drivers that fail more often

>> No.54137129

Probably the only version of android that actually performs slower than the one after

get your fucking facts right

>just got Marshmallow update on my LG V10 a day or two ago

>> No.54137140

i went directly from 2.3.7 to 5.0.1 (now on 6.0.1)
previous phone was barely fast enough for 2.3.7, current phone i got after 5 came out, and i installed 5.0.1 immediately. i prefer to use the latest versions of things unless i have a good reason not to

>> No.54137204

I just got Marshmallow on my Note 5. It fucking rocks. Much better than Lollipop, which was shit.

>> No.54137274

>falling for the kikedroid meme

Underrated post

Has anyone updated to that new 221.201.2.en.US update on the Verizon 1st gen moto g?
Don't know if I should update bros

>> No.54139301

Just wait until you try Lollipop, Marshmallow, and Nutella.

>> No.54139891

Lollipop sucks. Material design turned out to be complete snake oil that was less functional than holo. It doesn't even have it's look going for it anymore.

Battery life, stability, and feels very responsive compared to lollipop and marshmallow.

>> No.54140270

Thread is about KK though

>> No.54140403

I stated why kit Kat is so much better.

>> No.54140536

Design is what defines the user experiencie.

KK had a comfy design. Material design ruined it.

it's fast. Actually fucking fast, which is abnormal for anything but Android fucking Eclar

I hate the new recent apps stacked look compared to the uniform rectanges kitkat and below had.

Am I weird for thinking left looks better than right?

>> No.54144440


Yes, it's safe, why aren't you using stock 6.0 ported from the xt1033?

>> No.54144481

I think the old version was more functional but the new version is prettier. The new version could have been more functional if more of the titles so that you didn't have to scroll through.

>> No.54144503


Yes, you are weird.

>> No.54144572

The shitty Qualcomm shit wasn't ready for material design.

All it has is SHA1 hardware on board to cheat on benchmarks.

it's 2016. new runtime was needed, shit was running under a fucking virtual machine (dalvik)
IMO 6.0 is stable enough to be compared with kk, and new features are nice

It's not. You're just typical /g/ luddite

/gd/ fag here:
I can't stand material design,
and i don't really see any improvemet at all on android 5/6.
They could've just called them 4.5 and 4.6

>> No.54147339

Marshmallow's new permission system is significantly better than the old system

>> No.54147370

Still on KitKat because it gives me 6h SOT on my G3. Updates have always ruined my phones for me in one way or another.

You should consider updating

tell me at least one person who's been actually affected by stagefright, with a source

yea I know the vulnerability is there, but I haven't heard of anyone who actually got affected by it

so, what's the point then?

>> No.54147415

I'm mainly waiting for android n so I can finally run two windows at once without needing to exit every single time I want to switch to another window, Fucking finally, took them long enough to add such a basic functionality.

yea I don't see why everything has to have bigger so it doesn't fit on the screen anymore.
I guess if they make the screen bigger, that would be solved, but the phones are big enough already

Your privacy was compromised the moment you installed your router.

>> No.54147480

Would you even know if your phone was compromised unless they did something obvious?

>I don't need to worry about hackers because google already has my personal info!

Guess the pentagon should just unplug all their computers and hand out every secret they have because there's a router in their office!

KitKat a shit

>> No.54154029

dalvik was pretty fast by it's EOL, it was faster than ART by quite a bit for quite some time
Most custom ROM's have backported most security fixes, up to the latest security patch level
Manufacturers at least patched Stagefright for most high end devices, and most decent carriers released them

>> No.54154985

I'd probably say its the wafer biscuit inside, I like to eat around it so I can have it on its own.
