    Our two Note 2's are getting dramatically better battery life since the update. I can't quantify it exactly but it's so noticeable that I can say there's been quite an improvement. Nice!

    Yes, I'm pleasantly surprised. If this is the last update for this phone, I can live with that for a while.

    Yup, same here. I believe I posted about it in one of the other Kitkat threads. It's a big time improvement for me; my battery was lasting only half a day.

    Yeah, I've noticed that as well. I've also noticed better signal in weaker areas.

    good to hear that some of you are experiencing better battery life.

    i have yet to accept the OTS for 4.4.2.

    i'm using Nova launcher and i also have the Family Guy game on my phone so both of those run my battery down. to try and counter that, i have Power Saving on and my brightness all the way down for most of the day.

    i'll probably wait a while to see what people post about 4.4.2 before i decide to update or not.

    How does nova launcher drain your battery?

    not really sure but ever since i started using it last year, i've always felt that it is a contributing factor to battery drain...

    the Family Guy game eats up battery for sure though. i may just uninstall it and only use the app on my Note 10.1...

    I've been using Nova Launcher since last year and don't find it a battery hog. Turning on GPS and/or BT is what reduces my battery life quite noticeably and 4.3 also seemed to have slightly mucked up battery life. Doing better with 4.4.2 but because I have a Gear 2 watch, I have to keep BT on all the time or the watch isn't too useful.
