Nexus 5 sold with Key Lime Pie test build on board
posted by Alan F. / Nov 13, 2013, 8:19 PM
The phone's boot-up animation was similar to what was used for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and the codename Hammerhead can even be found on the Settings page. When a phone is bought with an old OS build onboard, it usually is quickly updated to the current build once the phone is activated. But with this phone containing a test version of Key Lime Pie, it is not eligible to receive OTA updates. As a result, the buyer had to have Android 4.4 flashed onto his device.
While this was nothing more than a small little bump in the road on that highway we call life, at least the buyer of the phone has a wonderful story that he can tell his kids and grandkids for years to come.

don't worry...I had concerns for first two days...but once everything settles down...battery life turn into decent...initially...I spent lot of time running benchmarks...checking settings in every corner of apps...after few days...now I am back to routine use...on full charge...it dropped to 15% after 1d 14h...with 3hrs of screen on time and 1h31m of calling...about 2hrs of local music play...most of the screen on time was in chrome. Now...what did i do to improve battery life - 1. location mode= battery saving 2. wifi advance setting > scanning allways = uncheck 3. NFC = uncheck 4. background sync = gmail and contacts only (every thing else off) 5. Runtime = ART (this doesn't really add to batterylife)

thanks for the info... appreciate it My main usage is watching movies/tv series and internet via wifi. Had Galaxy S2 before. The video playback time was excellent but the internet browsing time was very bad.

I know this is completely out of topic, but I'm surprised that PA is not even mentioning the update for Facebook messenger app for Android. It's been given a complete overhaul on the UI.

Don't like it. It was disclosed that it now allows people to send messages even if not on their friends list as long as they're in your phone book. But what wasn't disclosed is it also allows people who add you as a friend to message you even though you didn't accept them. I received 4 messages today from people who added me. It seems the only way to stop it is to block them.

TBH even though I would have been without a phone I probably would have kept it the same as I got it. The only phone with Key Lime Pie.

"at least the buyer of the phone has a wonderful story that he can tell his kids and grandkids for years to come." LOL, I'm getting old, the stories I'm gonna tell to my grandsons are about girls I've been with, crazy stuff I've done, not about a phone that came with wrong OS version...

Not if you live in a colony in outer space! You'll surely be talking about the first time the Raz'kleutz race of ancient cyborgs set foot on Earth and how they drove humanity out.

I'm still disappointed with Android 4.4 KitKat name. I didn't buy the "there was no profit involved", of course there is in a way or another, maybe I'm naive, after all Google is just another large corporation seeking lots of money. Google said KitKat was preferred because it's a better known name, well in my country KitKat isn't available but you can find a delicious key lime pie in every coffeehouse. Forget about lollipops, marshmallows, nougat... and welcome Life Savers®, M&M's®, Nesquik®...

You don't have the same cross-marketing opportunities with klp that you do with a trademarked worldwide brand like Nestlé's kit Kat. Nestlé actually has a marketing executive, whereas key lime pie in coffeehouses doesn't even have a logo.
