Default Kitkat faster after a few days

I may be imagining things but I get the impression on my phone that kitKat runs better after at least a few days use and after booting the phone a few times. Battery life, performance are excellent for me, better than when I first started using it.

Things get cached, etc, so it's not surprising.
Current Devices:
Moto G 16GB
Huawei Y300 (Black)
Alcatel OT-983 (Black) [Dead]
Nokia 2630
Xperia Play R800i (Black) [Dead]
Nexus 7 (16GB) [Returned]

Not the same for me. I've found KK update slower and more sluggish. It also uses more RAM than JB 4.3.
I think (but I'm not sure about that) GELauncher is causing this.

Well remove the Google Experience Launcher since it doesn't come on any devices except the Nexus 5 currently.

Nothing atm. I'm currently running CM11 unofficial mod and it is insanely great.

Launcher3? It is possible to install it as apk?
