While you are waiting on your phone manufacturer and/or carrier to bring over the sweet KitKat bar to your Android handset, you can try and achieve the same look on the device as it is. We don't mean sideloading the Google Experience Launcher and the new Google Now app, eventually messing up your battery life, but rather the good ol' coat of paint.
Grand and popular launcher names like Apex, GO or Nova have already issued subscription beta versions that bring the KitKat look, but several newcomers have swooped in right into the Play Store, to fill the void until they iron out the kinks. Thus if you want to get the stock KitKat look, including the full-screen wallpaper, the icons and menus of Android 4.4, check out the launcher collection below. With some of them you will be getting a few extra perks like landscape interface orientation, too, which the original KitKat doesn't offer.
