    This article, Motorola Rolls Out Android 4.4.3 KitKat Update for Moto X, Moto G and Moto E, says that you can't revert to a previous version once you update to 4.4.3.

    My battery is about half as long after the update. I am not exaggerating. No wakelocks, no wifi, no data, etc. overnight. 100% when I go to bed. 20% left 7 hours later. I realize my situation is probably not the norm, but the bad thing is I can't go back to 4.4.2.

    Huh my battery did seem to drain pretty quickly yesterday, which I wouldn't have noticed normally since it's usually plugged in a work all day but I was traveling yesterday. If this is true, VERY disappointing.

    I'm still on 4.4.2, my battery can go 12 to 16 hours without a charge granted in the car when I'm using Google Maps is on the charger but at work its on battery all the time the reason I'm 14 point 4.3. 3is because of a little, improvement in the redesign the phone dialer are there any other people experiencing battery drainage issues at all?

    I followed this article for the phone, How to restore Moto X to stock software with RSD Lite and stock firmware | AndroMods, but failed.

    That tells you how to get back to the latest stock version you were on.

    Release notes for every upgrade so far have said you can't go back.

    Isn't 4.4.2 the latest stock version I was on?
    Now 4.4.3 is your latest stock version you were/are on. Have you done a factory reset since the update to 4.4.3?

    I did clear the Dalvik cache. Is that the same thing?

    Clearing the dalvik cache isn't the same as a factory reset.
    There are two ways to do a factory reset .
    One way is :
    Settings>Backup &reset> Factory data reset

    Another way and the way I prefer is a factory reset though stock recovery:

    Hold down the Volume down button and the power button at the same time.
    Release both those buttons at same time.
    A screen pops up use the volume down button to select : recovery
    Then push volume up button
    Another screen pops up showing android on his back and the words no command under him
    This time hold the volume up button and power button at same time
    Release both those buttons at same time
    Use the bottom volume button to scroll to wipe data/factory reset
    Press the power button once that is selected to execute that command.
    You will have to scroll down to confirm you want to wipe data/factory reset and execute that with power button.
    You will see that your phone is being wiped from info scrolling at the bottom of screen.
    Once it has completed you will have the option to reboot your phone.
    Then select reboot phone and use power button to execute that command
    Your phone will wipe all saved data and will be like new out of the box. So you will have to set everything up again.
    You will still be on 4.4.3 but a fresh start

    Be sure to give things at least 48 hours, bare minimum, to smooth out. All of my Moto X's have taken 3-5 days to get the best battery life possible, longer if I've restored a large number of apps on top of a fresh install.

    Thanks everyone. I'll try all your suggestions.

    I had a Nexus 4 whose battery was atrocious. The X was a huge improvement until this update. It's worse than the N4 at the moment.
