Nexus 4 running Android L is time consuming

It was almost at the end of last month that Google surprised us and released a developer preview version of its next mobile OS, dubbed Android L. We still have no idea what its official name will be, but that isn’t important at this time, its features are.

So far there is limited support for Android L, and has only been spotted running on the Nexus 5 mostly as there seems to be far less issues. However, other devices from the family will be supported, such as the Nexus 4, although not fully just yet.

You are advised to exercise caution if installing Android L on anything other than the Nexus 5 or the Nexus 7 2013 edition, as there are certain to be several problems, which can be seen in the video below.

One eager developer took it upon himself to work his magic to get Android L working on the Nexus 4 with mixed results. It is good to get a rough idea of how the upcoming software will perform on the older Nexus smartphone, but it’s evident there are bugs.

No doubt many of you will be saying we don’t need reminding about the problems because this is something they know would happen. However, we would also like to add another piece of caution, and that is the fact that the first boot of Android L on the Nexus 4 will take around 20 minutes, so it can be time consuming initially.
