Questions: Jelly vs Kat & SD card limits
Greetings one and all.
Spoiled by the near virgin Android experience of my Moto X I bought the Nexus 7 2013 for a tablet. But now I am done with it. It is bad enough that the screen response issues are irritating to work with, Google's habit of surprising me by futzing with things I wish they would leave alone is annoying as all hell.
Now I am moving on to the LG 8.3. Like the Nexus it will of course come with Jelly Bean; which not only am I perfectly fine with, after playing with Kit Kat I kinda prefer it (but then again I still grumble about the loss of Gingerbread's dedicated menu button)
I allowed the KK update on the Nexus in hopes that it would alleviate the screen issues but the payoff was not worth it IMHO.
So my first question is, with the LG being a bit different of an animal than the Nexus, is there any IMPORTANT benefit to upgrading the LG to Kit Kat?
I really do not care about having the 'latest & greatest' especially if it diminishes what I want to do with a device.
Secondly, I am looking forward to having a device again with SD card storage. Google has been doing everything it can to sabotage the sales of manufactures that offer this in their devices by crippling the capabilities of this feature in its OS; what limits will I find on the LG running JB?
I am greatly disappointed that the Nexus didn't work out; the size and form factor were nice, the screen brightness was good for sitting outside, a dedicated SD card slot would have been nice but I dont put a whole lot of apps on a device and I was still able to use a Meenova for playing external video and music off a microSD card. But between the lousy touch screen, Google futzing with things and my having to jump through hoops to play flash videos, I am hoping that LG 8.3 and going back to Jelly Bean will be at least a little less frustrating.
Thanks in advance for your insights and suggestions.
