    LOL quick, smooth and powerful experience? Are you kidding me?

    Notifications are worse than in kitkat and the whole White everywhere theme is bloody annoying.
    Google additionally created internal changes to the platform, with the android Runtime (ART) formally replaced Dalvik for improved application performance, and with changes meant to boost and optimize battery usage, renowned internally as Project Volta.
    Performance is much worse than before and so is the battery life.

    Yes, because it was in fact copied and pasted. I was wondering if the OP wanted to share his or her source, since copying and pasting without attribution is a no-no on this forum.

    EDIT: Actually, I'm wrong. See post #8!

    Hmm. Now that I look more closely, I see that I was mistaken about this post. I believe this one surfaced around the time of another post that was quite clearly copied and pasted. Apologies to the OP!
