The title says it all.
Explain some reason or opinion.
Thanks in advance.

Why would 4.2.2 ever be preferable?

4.4 is lightyears ahead compared to 4.2 (I'm talking about stocks only)
E.g:
More free RAM (200mb at least)
more smoothness
Better performance (10% with benchmark antutu and 3dmark)
Stronger wifi signal

The tablet I bought it two days ago ... I immediately updated to 4.4.2 without testing the performance of 4.2.2. So I asked for advice.

Battery life is better, and gamma/brightness depend on your previous ROM. Try the one in my sig if you want a definite improvement.

Right now im content with 4.2.2 because i'm rooted, use Nova Launcher and it connects to my dual micro usb/usb flash drive to watch movies. I can also move files around using ES file explorer.

Is there OTG support with the KK update?
Can you write files to SD card with KK?

When I enable ART runtime, my G Pad runs very slow. For me Dalvik runtime is the best.
