LG Shows Off The Speed Difference Between Jelly Bean And KitKat On The G2

LG G2 Snap

LG, today, uploaded a video on YouTube showing the speed difference of the upcoming Android 4.4 KitKat update to the current Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean build on the LG G2. The video compares the performance of two G2s across a bunch of day-to-day tasks including web browsing, Knock On and more. 

The company used a camera that records videos in slow-mo to show off the speed difference between the two versions of Android on its flagship handset. The KitKat running G2 managed to outperform the Jelly Bean running G2 in all the tasks comfortably and sometimes with a difference of more than 50%.

The improved performance is especially noticeable in the camera and gallery app loading times, web browsing, watching HTML5 videos and browsing contacts. The camera shutter speed has also been reduced thereby decreasing the shot-to-shot time.

The company also states that it will be rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to the LG G2 in mid-march in the United Kingdom. While mid-March is still a few weeks away, it is nice to see LG working hard on optimizing the latest version of Android to offer improved performance on its devices.
