It feels better back like the first day I got it. My phone before the ota was a lot slower. I did benchmarks a couple weeks before the ota and my numbers seemed weirdly low, like sequential read was 5mb now it's 26, I'm guessing that's trim doing it's job? One thing I don't like is that we can't swipe between tabs in settings, it never bothered me in phone since I didn't make calls daily,but I go to settings multiple times a day and I keep trying to swipe. Maybe I'll get use to it. Also I love the new lockscreen (I use a pin setup) it's cleaner and with the xposed module we can choose our own lockscreen widgets.

Yea seriously mods stop merging these threads all the time. Not everything needs to be consolidated into one thread. You are actually making it difficult for users to find answers to questions when you try to force ALL the info into one thread. A better idea would be to leave a poll that asks if the current thread should be merged, left as is or deleted. That way its not just you guys randomly deciding what is important and more us users making the judgment call.

Thanks!

Things I've noticed:

1. Apps update and open faster
2. LTE seems faster
3. Slighty more and quicker battery drain (using ZeroLemon battery)
4. Can now close all instances of stock browser windows completely (no window left open)
5. Stock 4.3 ROM seems to take up about 200-250MB more RAM
6. Ability in Task Manager to "launch by default" function; helps apps from asking you each you time you use them which other app you want to open them with (eg. Gallery, Photos, Skype, Internet, etc.)
7. Ability to change size of text in text messaging by using up or down volume button
8. Additional folder under /storage called "emulated" -- don't know anything about Android OS, but appears to be duplicate prior operating environment under 4.2.2, and takes up about 2.11BG of space in System (internal) storage.
