Since the introduction of the Android 4.4 KitKat system, many users have been complaining about bugs and other problems. Some of these problems include battery drain, message app crashing, unable to connect and even unable to install. There were also issues on the quality of the camera and the app itself crashing. Google has yet to make an announcement. Analysts believe Google wants to make sure all KitKat problems are fixed before introducing other elements. The main goal of the Android 4.4 KitKat is to lessen the fragmentation among Android users including the lower end and older models.
