Default Kitkat on my Verizon S4 - what does it get me?


I just got the official kitkat update and don't know if it gets me anything I want. I'm sure it has a ton of updates I don't really care about. Does it cover any of these?

1. Is it more accurate in voice dial - does let me set it to only search my address book?
2. Does it give me a larger reject list for junk telemarking calls? (I think the old list was at 100)
3. Does it give me a way of exporting my junk dialer numbers to my next device?
4. Does it stop my phone from randomly dropping calls?
5. Does it include some sort of RBL black list for telemarketers?

I haven't seen any of that in the unofficial change logs nor I would expect Sammy to have significantly updated their dialer app. Not really much updated besides the under the hood enhancements related to Kit Kat.
