Default [Q] KitKat Update - First Impressions

For those of you who were lucky enough to get the KK update (whether OTA or rooted): what are your impressions of the update? How is performance over the 4.3 ROM? What about battery life?

Just wondering what you think so far.

ROM: LikeWise S5 4.1 4.4.2 NE4

memory management is much better which leads to less ui lag (virtually none), better battery life and just an overall better performing device! It's definitely worth taking knox for
