Nexus 5 Android L vs. Nexus 4 with 4.4.4 KitKat

Android L was previewed on June 26 during Google I/O, and now the developer edition has been in the hands of some devs to see how it stacks up against the latest version of Android, which is 4.4.4 KitKat. So it was only a matter of time before we got to see a review of Android L vs. Android KitKat.

In the video we get to see the Nexus 5 running the latest preview version of Android L, which is up against the Nexus 4 running Android 4.4.4 KitKat, which as you know is the most up-to-date version of the mobile OS.

The video explains how they are similar and how they are different. The icons and layout are the same, as were the widgets, but right away you will notice different onscreen soft buttons, which has been described as being very similar to that of the PlayStation on the Nexus 5 running L.

You will also notice some slight differences with the notifications center, with the Bluetooth icon being different, the vibrate icon also looks different.

However, it is when you pull down the rest of the notifications that some Android users might be upset because it looks a lot darker on L compared to KitKat. Having said that, this does come down to personal preference.

The video runs for a little over 8 minutes and covers many of the differences between the two, and we know things will improve over the weeks, and hope to see more videos looking at these changes.
