anyone else having terrible battery life since the 4.4.2 update?

I can't believe how fast my battery drains now with average use. I used to get through the day and would usually be at about 70% left when I plug in at midnight. It's 4pm now and I'm already at 52%.

I've really noticed over the last 4 or 5 days after doing the OTA update on the 22nd.

I am connected to wifi all day, bluetooth is on, gps off. reallly only used for a few short phone calls, some texting and bluetooth streaming on my commute. This is the same usage and settings as was before the update with excellent battery life.

Looked around but couldn't see anything about this... am I alone here.

thanks!

I'm also noticing what I think is bad battery life. But I just got the phone and updated to KitKat before I even played around so I have nothing to compare to.

But I'm getting close to what appears to 12 hours on moderate use. This is my first full day with the phone so I'll know more in a couple days.

So far my average is around 2.5 hrs screen time at the 50% mark.

Today it was at 3 hrs screen time at 50% (14 hours total). This is my first day being rooted also. I've only had the phone for 8 days now however, not sure if it's normal or not. Coming from my gs4 it's a ton better!

Yup same here. I fixed my deep sleep issue with root, and greenify virtually everything, but screen on kills my battery pretty fast. Getting about what you guys are as well.

Apparently there is a new update that is available to international users that fixed the issues reported. Bluetooth always running, knock code, and decreased battery
