Default Android 4.3 (gonna stay put)

After much testing and trying out various roms, I decided to stay put android 4.3.

Until 4.5 or 5 comes out, I don't see any need to further use 4.4.x.
1. The battery issues never really got resolved in kit Kat.
2. The sd card matter. Hmmmm. How do I talk about this without letting my rage get the best of me? the only app I've seen in the last few months worth paying for is the Snap camera.
And this really is what the sd card issue is all about. Paying for apps.

With the war going on among the smartphones, the drm should not have taken so much control over android.

Unfortunately, Camera has stopped.

I should have done more research into kit kat before I updated. JB was just fine.

DONATE TO ME
Honestly. 4.3 is my favorite version of Android (jelly bean at least). i have sticked Cyanogenmod 10.2.1 on my Galaxy tab 2 10.1/T989 Galaxy s2/i897 Captivate and they are probably the smoothest version i have played around with. just recently upgraded to a Moto X that came with 4.4 and its not that bad i guess on a stock moto or nexus device, but i cant stand Cyanogenmod 11 or Kit kat roms these days.
"Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
"How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
"You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here."

Motorola Moto X
Stock KitKat (4.4.2) XT1060
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Rom: Cyanogemod 11 (4.4.4) P5113
Asus Nexus 7
Stock (4.4.2) Broken Digitizer, any recommendations on amazon?
Chromecast
Stock
Nikon Coolpix s800c
Stock Gingerbread (2.3.3)

My girl has 4.3 on her GS3 and I think she is going to stay put with that. As for me I am staying with 4.1.2 for now. Running Wicked Sensations v5.0 and I am very satisfied for now.

I'm on a Note 2.

4.3 seems to be where Android reached it's height.
When the next version after kit Kat comes out, I will try it out though.
But if things like the SD card matter doesn't get fixed, Samsoogle is gonna be very surprised at how long some of us can stay with jellybean.
The SD card thing is just about not letting you transfer apps.

I switched from 4.2 to 4.4.2 so i can't speak about 4.3 but I can tell you that kit kat is awesome in terms of speed, smooth and battery life is almost the same.
