Default 4.4 vs 4.3 battery life

Was wondering what others are experiencing;


4.3 Light usage (GPS on, WiFi on, LTE off, Stamina on) - 96% left (5H 21M on battery)

4.4 Light usage (GPS/Location off, WiFi on, LTE off, Stamina on) - 65% left (7H 30M on battery)

4.3 and 4.4 had about the same screen time(maybe a little less on the 4.4), no calls on either, about the same texting on both

- Not even slightly scientific, but just to give an idea..... 4.3 values is going from 4.4 back to 4.3

- Also 4.4 upgrade was done through PC companion

Anyone else has crazy battery drain (% wise) like me, just wondering?

No crazy battery drain here the battery life might not be as good but the difference is some what minimal so it's hard to tell I use to have a really slow notification bar that was slow to respond once touched and couldn't even keep up with my finger but now it's back to normal.
