Lenovo Vibe Z receives KitKat update

We just reviewed Lenovo Vibe Z last week. It is the current flagship offering of Lenovo but it shipped with a dated Android 4.3 “Jelly Bean.” Now, we just received the Android 4.4.2 “KitKat” update and here’s what changed.

The screenshots are taken from our review unit with the theme named “Pulse” that was selected by default after the update process. It screams iOS at first glance due to the icons and the transitions it has.

But since Lenovo has its own “Theme Center”, you can immediately revert back to your own chosen theme before having the update. There’s no official change log yet but here is what we’ve noticed:

1. Roboto font is used for icon labels and system notification
2. Camera shortcut on lockscreen
3. Frosted glass background effect for notification tray
4. New transition effects
5. New icons
6. Smoother performance

If you have a Lenovo Vibe Z, head to the system settings and do the update. The update is a hefty 1.21GB download.
