Gionee had started rolling out Kitkat updates on some of its devices. The update has now been announced for Gionee Pioneer P4. If you are the owner of Pionee P4 then head on to system updates and get the P4 upgraded to Android 4.4.2.

The update is automatic via OTA ( Over the Air), you can also get it done from the service centre. You will need to download and then install the file. Make sure the battery is over 75% and if possible take a backup of the apps, though not really require but just in case. Gionee has mentioned that the data will not be lost but after the update it will revert back to the default theme.

The new update by Gionee will be using the Amigo UI based on Android 4.4.2. The desktop layout has changed, some apps specially games like real football, cricket etc has been removed. The Game Zone got a new look and UI. NQ mobile security, Kingsoft office and UC browser are now better optimized to work with the UI.

If you have the P4 and have updated it to Android 4.4.2 do let us know about the overall performance, battery backup and any issues you might have faced.
