Thanks. Always loved Apple's Retina picture, so I decided to give it a go. I still have a little soft spot for my old SuperUser logo. Time to move on..

Hah, I find the March/April claim for the GS3 quite amusing. There is no way in hell that Samsung, or even the carriers for that matter, would want the update to come out right before the GS5 is released. AINT HAPPENIN!

I didn't expect to see my LG Optimus F3 on the list and its not. But guess what, that's why I bought a Nexus 7 tablet. So I can experience timely updates even my phone wont.

KitKat 4.4 isn't that good. I own the Nexus 7 2013 already got the last update 4.4.2, yeah the camera it's better now even though it's tablet but games and over all performance isn't that great unless you change to ART mode instated of Divlok mode and still there's force to close issue. Google just lie about KitKat and how smooth and still can't run well even with quad core and 2 GB of Ram?!

I have a serious doubt. I have xperia z1 which runs on JB. When updates are made available will the software of the handset support Kitkat android software. Because Kitkat is very powerful operating system, will the battery back up be enough???

Will the Kitkat android be compatible on my Sony Xperia z1. I feel because the software is different there might be some glitches. My relatives who got the update say that the settings show 'jelly bean as the os and only a few icons have changed on their note2. Also battery is draining faster than before. Is this true? Can anybody clear my doubts. Thanx

I see people still wasting money on non Nexus devices. Remember new Android update comes out in June and all these non nexus or Google edtioe devices will be out dated

i found out from online sources that LG Optimus L3, L5 and L9 2nd generation devices are rumoured to receive android 4.4 kitkat at end of Q1 and so far it is ringing true with my device as i am getting updates quite often now which tells me they may be preparing the phone to receive the upgrade, also my LG optimus L3 II received an update which added the "knockon" feature
