Gionee Elife S5.5 gets Android 4.4 KitKat update
Gionee, the Chinese Smartphone manufacturers have started rolling out KitKat update to your Android Smartphone.
Gionee Elife S5.5 Kitkat update has been on the cards for some time now and today, Gionee will start rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat based Amigo ROM in Indian market following a notable delay. We wouldn’t mind the delay if Gionee manages to keep bugs at bay.
The update is 866 MB in dimensions and will also update some pre-loaded apps. You will get a new desktop layout that has been enhanced NQ Security. Gionee has also updated UcBrowser, GioneeXender and Kingsoft Office.
Gionee has additionally added new UI to Amigo paper and Game Zone. Gionee has also added Du Speed Booster which kind of acts like a task killer to get rid of stuff and data which slows down your phone or consume more resources. The update may also remove some bloatware including World Cricket Champion and Real Football game. The major highlight remains Adroid 4.4 KitKat.
Gionee has added a new Notification panel, which is missing settings menu but adds several new toggles and animations. Additionally, it adds brightness bar at the bottom which many people use frequently. The Settings panel isn’t multi colored and sports a White back ground.
