Nexus 5 takes better pictures with Android 4.4.1 update

If you have a Nexus 5 and are waiting for an update you are in luck - soon you will be able to update your smartphone to Android 4.4.1 KitKat, which will improve the quality of the pictures taken with the camera of the device. This was reported by David Burke, director of Engineering for Android in Google, while he was giving interview for The Verge. He confirmed that the smartphone's camera will now focus faster and will aim to select faster shutter speeds, not relying as heavily on its OIS as it is now.

This means, that photos, most likely, will have less motion blur and shake, but will add a bit more noise to the picture. White balance and exposure algorithms will also be improved.

Other than the quality of the images, the camera application will load faster.

Burke also reports, that the update took the team about 5 weeks to complete and a lot of work was put into it.

Another good news about the update is that it is fixing the face unlock bug on the Nexus 5. For those of you, who haven't experienced it, the facial recognition option sometimes causes the device to restart itself.
