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.

has the gamma/brightnes problem been fixed with kitkat? What about battery life?

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.
