Release the Android 4.4.3 (update: 4.4.4)
Google I/O is up next week, and way before that Google decided to launch their new KitKat Android 4.4.3. Since this isn’t a major release, it patches up bugs and has minor visual alterations. First things first the release of Android 4.4.2 KitKat on the known camera and CPU issue found on the Google Nexus 5. The Google Nexus 5 would drain battery excessively and utilise the CPU abnormally when the camera app is open. Even when closed the camera app runs in the background and will keep the battery drained and CPU unusually strained. Some of the devices that got the update was the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and both versions of the Nexus 7. Google Play Edition phones also do get the update if you do own one. Visually, the dialer app seems to get its update.
Despite the bug fix though there are reports of new bugs plaguing the Nexus devices. The dialer app crashes, difficulty in connecting to a Wi-Fi, GPS issues, Google Play Store and Gmail crashes. On the Nexus 7, it seems that the Google Music service is facing some difficulties as well. These issues are reported by only a handful of users though and therefore not verified. Anyone has the latest Android yet? If yes, how do you find it and do you face similar issues to the ones stated?
*Update: 4.4.4 is released just one week after 4.4.3. It is a OpenSSL security patch to prevent future attacks. Assuming that the update came so fast, we assume that it is a major security patch.
