    Default no KitKat Easter egg?

    I tried the usual technique for activating the KitKat Easter egg by tapping on the version number to no avail. How do we/can we see the egg?

    The easter egg is the dessert case daydream (unless I'm missing something?). Keep tapping on the various things there until a big K shows up. You can spin it or tap on it and then it morphs into the red Android wallpaper. Then you can tap that and it morphs into the dessert case daydream.

    There is nothing special like jelly bean. I kinda miss that, I would let my son flick the beans off the screen.

    It may be specific to the Nexus 5.

    I dont have a "dessert case" daydream. How do I get that? Tapping on the android version number does nothing.

    Sorry, my bad. I think it may only be on the Nexus 5.

    But you can download it as an app from the play store I think. At least I know you can download all the easter eggs from jelly bean backwards as apps although they can't be set as daydreams.

    HTC has never included the version number tap easter eggs on any device running Sense.

    Oh . . was I supposed to automatically know that or something? I''ve only had the phone a little over a week. Coming from a droid razr and a two week trial of a GS4 (which I found inferior to the ONE.)

    No, that is why people ask questions. If everyone knew the same tips and tricks this forum would be pointless. Let's try and be less hostile

    There is an easter egg. Tap on version lots of times, like you did, then tap on the 'K' that pops up, and it spins. Hold down on the 'K' and you get a KitKat-style background. Hold down on that, and you get a Windows-like tiles you can push back and forth.

    Question Re: no KitKat Easter egg?

    WHY would we be expected to DOWNLOAD something that is supposed to be "hidden" in our settings (according to Google)? Downloading into a phone with VERY limited memory will only mess you up when you want to take a photo, only to be told "Not enough memory".
