Android 4.1 also known as Jelly Bean, it is an update from Ice Cream Sandwich, a very tasty dessert . Google decided to take the improvement slowly.  If you will compare Android 4.0 to Android 4.1, they almost look the same.

What Is New In Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?


The reason why they don’t name it as Android 5.0 is because they only made minor improvements. If you already have a phone running with Android 4.0, I’m sure you realized that sometimes it is lag. With their newest update Android 4.1, it was fixed, you can easily change your wallpaper or browse applications without any communication latency. You will surely love the new speed of Android 4.1!  It was because of Project Butter. It is the best approach to minimize the lag in Android 4.0.

Android 4.1 makes it convenient to read books, magazines, watch TV or movies. You can easily buy those things with their new application and read or watch them immediately. What makes Android 4.1 more convenient for everyone is the new “Google search”. You can easily access Google search and it automatically saved it. If you search about a certain location, it will automatically remember it. 

If you have an iPhone 4s, I am sure you know Siri. Google search is like Siri, you can ask things verbally like asking about the weather, your location and other requests. Another change made is it can detect whether the phone is use or not and it will automatically turn down its power, conserving the battery life.  The camera feature of Android 4.1 is almost the same as Android 4.0 but they made a single change. If you just took a photo, you can easily view it by swiping your screen, there is no need to go to the Gallery or quit camera mode. 

The Android 4.1 also allows you to manage your widget easily like if they are too big for the screen they will be automatically resized. One great change is they keyboard. It will automatically provides you a guess for the next word you are typing, you can also type your message through your voice any time. Yet, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has a problem when it comes to security. Unlike other smart phones, it can not automatically erase your phone memory and SD memory when it is stolen or lost.

Even though minor improvements were made, it can’t be denied that we are pleased with the changes. These improvements made Android a better, more convenient and more reliable for everyone. You can also install Android 4.1 to your phone, just look for its compatibility.
