    Default Verizon software update 4/18!

    Hey guys, just got a software update pushed to my device. It's installing now. Got my device on launch day. This is something new, but I haven't read anything about it online. Anyone know what it is for?

    After the update, I'm still at 4.4.2 so it's not the 4.4.3 update. Can't find anything about it on Verizon's website yet.

    Unfortunately, the extreme power saving mode isn't there.

    Yup it's already been confirmed no extreme power saving mode. Hopefully you can still root after this update and install it yourself.

    The big difference with mine is that before the update I always had ~850MB of RAM being used which seemed like a big amount. When I switched to ART, it was knocked down to 550. I switched back, because ART ran worse for me, and it still stuck around that 850. After the update it's lowered down to 650MB.

    So basically everything the m8 on AT&T already has lol. New copy/paste function? Mine has had that since day one, same with the mute/ volume button on video highlights in the gallery app.

    Why would Verizon remove them and then add them later with a software update? Seems kinda backward if you ask me.

    Actually here's something I never noticed before: when you turn on the display it kinda reverse fades from being darker to lighter.
