Recording whatever it is you're doing on your Android device is possibly among the most sorely missed features of the versatile OS, and the years haven't been kind to any of the few solutions on the market. Even today, those apps offer a second grade recording, as quality is often far below the sanitary minimum, not to mention that the footage itself is downright laggy due to a low frame rate. Worse yet, running some of those apps puts quite the strain on your smartphone, often barring you from recording game footage.
But here are the good news: Android 4.4 KitKat fixes all of that. Thanks to a new native feature, devices running KitKat are able to record whatever is happening on your screen quite successfully. Bitrate can be tweaked to high enough levels, the frame rate is acceptable, and you can capture at a resolution of up to 1080x1920 pixels.
