KitKat 4.4.2 for Sprint Galaxy Note 3 starts rolling out today. Have you updated yours?

Hey guys we’ve got some good news for our followers in the US (especially those who own the Samsung Galaxy Note 3). As of today, Sprint users are being treated to the latest version of Android 4.4.2, KitKat which started rolling out in the morning. Even though the update brings it with the regular changes and enhancements that were expected from the (highly anticipated) update, there are a few more additions exclusively to the US carriers. These include the following; Phone Dialer: The new phone app automatically prioritizes your contacts based on the people you talk to the most. You can also search for nearby places and businesses, your contacts, or people in your Google Apps domain. Camera Enhanced: the “touch to focus” option with a new circular, on screen control that can be dragged by your finger around the viewfinder to adjust a photo’s focus and exposure. Hangouts: With the new Hangouts app, all of your SMS and MMS messages are together in the same app, alongside your other conversations and video calls. Just say “Ok Google”: You don’t need to touch the screen to get things done. When on your home screen* or in Google Now, just say “Ok Google” to launch voice search, send a text, get directions or even play a song Emoji everywhere: Sometimes words can’t express how you feel. For that, there’s Emoji, the colorful Japanese characters, now available on Google Keyboard. The OTA update should start arriving as we speak and for those who didnt get it automatically, can easily go in their phone’s settings menu and manually grab hold of the new update bearing the firmware version N900R4TYUCNAB. Let us know whether you have received the update as yet and if you have then do feel free to share in your new KitKat experience with us. Cheers...

Android 4.4.2 Test Firmware Leaked for The Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505)

Android 4.4.2 Test Firmware Leaked for The Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505)

  Samsung have been raring up for the launch of their 2014 flagship the Galaxy S5, but that does not mean that they have forgotten their previous top tier smartphone the Galaxy S4. Thanks to Sammobile we were able to get a leaked Android 4.4.2 Test firmware for the international version of the Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505). The firmware I9505XXUFNAD is the latest test build for the Galaxy S4 and seems to be quite stable, per say a few bugs.   The update brings with it all the usual suspects of Android 4.4.2 KitKat,  making the icons in the status bar white, adding a camera shortcut on the lockscreen etc. The device according to benchmarks has received quite a nice performance boost after the update, though you might not feel much difference (As it is already a very powerful device).  Music albums on the lock screen will be shown in full screen mode, so that looks really nice. One of the note-able changes though is of the Samsung keyboard, somehow typing on it (including via gestures) has become really fast.  Well dont take my word for it, if you a feeling adventures they download the update now and see how it is yourself! Model: GT-I9505 Country: Open Europe Version: Android 4.4.2 Changelist: 481100 Build date: Tue, 28 Jan 2014 22:02:19 +0000 Product Code: OXX PDA: I9505XXUFNAD CSC: I9505OXXFNA2 MODEM: I9505XXUFNAD Download: Discussion...

The Play Store keeps getting updated with minor changes time and again, but today when I opened the Play Store a new Tab had added but some old ones went missing.  The new tab is called “Want Quick Suggestions?” and it shows all the apps which your friends have either liked or reviewed, plus the ones which similar to your own frequent searches.
