KitKat has both Ks capital.
TouchWiz does have quick toggles - tap this:
There are many, many devices that do not have an action bar - not just Galaxy S4s. Older Sony phones, HTC phones before the new One, all Samsungs, most Chinese Android phones, and others.
The app drawer icon isn't always in the center - in TouchWiz it is on the right, and I like mine on the left.
Other than all that, the article is awesome for beginners. Will be reading this and sending it to a couple of people.

Really looking forward to this series. Not everybody knows how to appropriately use their devices. I'll share this article with some friends who really need to check it out.
I would love to see an article on launchers. Personally, I've been using ADW for years now, and while I don't heavily customize it, I would never go back to the stock launcher on any device, just because of a couple of simple features - locking the desktop layout being at the top of the list.
Good one! Great timing for me, because I just recently bought my first android device... Though I'm hoping for extended discussions for android mods stuffs. Like about its terms, ROM's, kernels, cwm, flash, etc.
Nice article, I like how much content HTG has been writing recently, I'd just like to correct a minor error. About half way down you called the on screen buttons at the bottom of the phone the "action bar" this is incorrect. Per this link Google refers to that as the "Navigation Bar" the action bar refers to the bar located at the top of many apps, per this article.
You really, really want to start reading the XDA site. It's all about Android, specifically about tweaking and hacking (in a good way) Android devices. http://www.xda-developers.com/
