Android 4.4.3 KitKat update release nears with increased testing


Just like any mobile firmware the latest version of the Android operating system isn’t without its problems, but the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update release nears with reports of increased testing getting underway.

We have already heard how the Android 4.4.3 firmware update is mainly focussed on providing a number of bug fixes to the operating system, and that the software was already at the early testing stage ahead of a release.

Now a new report is suggesting that testing has increased to help iron out any bugs with the new build of the Android operating system ahead of a release to end users. This is being called the dogfooding process that sees engineers and employers using the software internally and checking for any problems.

Of course once the new Android update is ready for release it will become available for owners of Nexus devices first before other hardware eventually gets the new build many months later.

    Google has a fantastic product in the Nexus 5, but lost momentum thanks to the battery drain issue and the original poor camera (now improved) in the original release. As another commentator mentioned, it would be wise for Google to take a page out of the Apple playbook and iron out software issues prior to release. Sad to release a flagship model with two basic and glaring flaws. Hopefully, 4.4.3 fixes battery drain and other nagging issues and the Nexus 5 can assume its rightful place at the top of the phone heap.
