I hear ya, it was not really a treat to run on ICS either but was at least manageable. The secret is being able to load A2SD which is a bit of a hassle but as I learn more about Linux and partitioning, I was able to do it. In effect it turns a few Gig of your SD card into RAM and then allows you to have a reasonably functional phone. KitKat was Google's first foray into the 'modern' settings so you can use more of their features. I use my EVO as a 'take to the gym' phone since it slips into its holster on my arm so perfectly.. Not to big and not to small. I can also dump a much of shows from my TiVo onto the phone and on trips or flights watch my shows and the removable battery means I can just swap at my leisure and not depend on a charge bank.. so can play back my music, make phone calls over the wifi if needed and utilize some of the workout apps and fitness apps that are no longer compatible below 4.4.
Im not throwing shade at the RC3! I loved RC3 and think it is a GREAT use for the phone, I guess I just figured why not try and push this GREAT phone and see what it can really do.
