Android 4.4.1 Update Starting to Roll Out for Nexus 4,5 and 7

A lot had been made out of the camera performances of the Nexus 5 when it was released. Although, most of the comments of the device were really positive, a lot of people who had hands on with the device complained of a poor Camera Focusing speed as well as the erratic battery performances of the latest Flagship from the labs of Google. It did not take a rocket scientist to figure out that, next up on agenda of updates for Google would be enhancing the focusing speed of the Nexus 5 as well as taking away some of the little bugs.

The update has started rolling out as we talk for all the Nexus range of devices to Android 4.4.1 which fixes most of the issues as claimed by some of those who have updated already. There have been reports that the Camera application is now loading a full second quicker and faster than what the experience was earlier, and that the speaker performance on the Nexus 5 has been enhanced by a fair few notches. The images taken from the Nexus 5 have truer colors and there is also the ability to pinch zoom in the HDR+ mode. The update as expected is in patches and not all devices have received it yet.

There is no official confirmation on when other devices such as the GPE of the HTC One or the Galaxy S IV would be getting these updates, but surely it would be soon. There is no confirmed change log or list of changes or improvements that the update would bring, but you can directly download the update in the form of .zip files as we speak.
