Default Wtf is google playing at 4.4.2 Problems

Just posted this in google forums as well...
Just got the update on my nexus 5...

Ok while it has fixed a few things like camera speed,vibration feedback etc there arw some things that have gone worse...

The camcorder is now extremely dark compared to the camera almost hardly visible when selecting video to record! And in quiet environments all i'm getting from sound recorded is hissing and static, please tell the devs to disable noise cancellation it's making a right mess of recorded audio!

One other thing i've noticed is 2 problems with the gallery app, first off there seems to be some sort of initial stutter when flicking through photos or scrolling that did not exist before on 4.4 and also theres an annoying delaying of a split second when tapping a photo to view full screen which didn't exist on 4.4 almost like the phone is struggling a bit when it shouldn't with the power of hardware that is in the phone, these did not exist in 4.4.

I should have read your post before upgrading too, you are right lots of noise with video capturing it is a joke how they are rushing out updates half cooked!
My current Devices:
Nexus 4 | 4.4.2 Omni

Agree, I find now more bugs on 4.4.2 than on stock 4.4.. what the hell. Gallery app is a disgrace now.
