    Have they fixed the issues where you battery drains due to "Android OS"??? My Nexus 7 drains all day long, only lasts two days max, even when I don't use it. When I first got it, before the 4.3 update came out, battery life was unbelievable... Now it's not great at all.

    Nexus 5 seems to be similar. Only been unplugged 20 minutes and it's down to 96%... Only sent 2 text messages... The battery life is not very improved for what they said would be improved in 4.4...
    I have the very same issue with my Moto X on 4.4. The "Android OS" battery drain is caused by NlpWakeLock (for me, anyway) not allowing the phone to enter deep sleep as frequently as it should. The only thing that "fixes" it is to disable Google Now as well as location services in general. Which, for me, is unacceptable as I use these services frequently. I sincerely hope Google acknowledges and fixes this bug soon. The battery drain issue notwithstanding, KitKat is great.

    Just for those that assume it's caused by an errant app, I assure you it's not. After multiple factory resets and even a complete reflash back to stock with no third party apps installed (and bloat disabled) the issue still persists. I hope 4.4.1 fixes it

    The update is great overall. I've noticed the phone snappier, louder speaker, and fixed haptic feedback. I'm sure there are other improvements I haven't noticed.

    A few minor things I've noticed need fixing tho.. First, the wallpapers render choppy when selected to be used as a wallpaper..

    And two, I experience lag when flicking thru the widgets selection screen..

    Also, I experienced lag watching an HD video on the device, using the Google movies app.. It may have been the video but I'm not sure

    Stock, rooted nexus 5 4.4.1

    Has there always been an option in the sound settings to switch between what music effects app you want to use? I've never noticed it before the update. But i could be wrong. And I probably am. Lol

    Yeah, it shows up after you install another audio equalizer app.

    I can't speak for Viper, but I still run 4.4, and I have a similar screen after I installed noozxoide.

    Does 4.4.1 finally fix the weird random extra home screen that sometimes pops ups for no reason at all?

    That's nothing to fix
    That screen comes up when you install uninstall or move stuff around the home screen it disappears after a couple of minutes.

    Only if the update includes an updated launcher, which I doubt.

    It seems to appear randomly. The only way to get rid of it is to long press a home screen icon or widget and then the extra screen will disappear. The issue is, it randomly thinks I'm trying to add a new screen when I'm not.

    What I mean is it wasn't reported as a bug but a feature or way the OS functioned.

    Mmmmm I dont remember this working on 4.4. Using Google Now "listen to The Police (artist name)" before it would just launch the google player and sit there. Looks like now it acutally plays all the tracks from the artist!!! Also, i dont remember being able to use 3rd party player with Google Now.....I am able to use Player Pro......Awesome.....

    Here's the place to share any changes you're seeing in the new version. Here are the main ones I've noticed so far with so far...


    ... Missing anything? Shout out below.
    EmailGoogle and Exchange2Google have been updated, and confirmed to fix the problem in setting up an EAS mail account (CamelCase bug with importing a cert, frakked in 4.4). EAS mail in the stock clien has been broken longer than it's been fixed since ICS, me thinks.

    No change to Hangouts, darn it.

    All I can say is that I haven't seen it appear so far in 4.4.1. So... maybe?

    Sweet. I sideloaded 4.4.1. Hopefully it won't appear again for any of us.

    Unfortunately it's still happening.

    I'm the only one experience this? Random extra blank home screen popping up?

    It never happened here yet. Maybe it's an easter egg you uncovered.

    I've had that happen to me on 4.4, but only once. It fixed itself by doing something simple - can't remember exactly, but I do remember that it was something that kind of refreshed the screen. Hasn't happened yet on 4.4.1, but even if it did - I doubt it would happen often at all... and it's harmless and goes away simple enough.
