A very informative and positive test report re. my KitKat 4.4.4 build 6

One member on andex.exton.net wrote this today about my KitKat 4.4.4 build 6 of 150606.

I’ve been testing the 4.4.4 Kitkat version 6 on my Asus Vivobook with Intel HD Graphics and touchscreen. The touchscreen works perfectly and supports multitouch. Finally a build that works great with with games. I played Clash of Clans with no hassle. I ran most of the graphics benchmark apps available.

I had a persistent “Unfortunately, your app has stopped” error problem with Dominations. Another Clash of Clans type popular RTS game with civilizations/age of empires/rise of nations looking graphics. This game is relatively new and has lots of nasty bugs and performance issues. I got the same issues on any device, including native ARM devices. So it’s not related to the build. I managed to fix the crashing bug after wiping the data with Titanium Backup. Wiping the data and cache with the standard app manager couldn’t solve it. I don’t know why. I should add that after the fix, I had a very stable game experience and way much less random crashes than my tablet and my phone.

It’s the best Android x86 version I’ve tested so far. You need to be a little patient at the beginning and update “Google Play Services” asap. It’s pretty stable and satisfying. It’s one tick away from being perfect, if mx player with the x86 codec pluging had worked. But that doesn’t work with the Android-x86.org version either. [REQUEST] It would be great to have that working as it is one of the most popular media players. I tried several other well known media players but no luck, except VLC for Android, which is still in development and has artifacts while playing videos.

Everything else works like a charm. This is my best experience with Android-x86 so far. I extremely recommend it especially if you want to play your Android games on your PC.
