Default Is the Moto G 4.4.3 upgrade worth the effort?

After some frustration, I finally was able to upgrade to 4.4.3 + added some xposed modules to provide some tweaks. But so far I really haven't noticed any benefits using 4.4.3 over the previous version, for me 4.4.2 ran really well. I have subsequently Googled to compare the actual changes and believe the updates probably don't really do much for me. I hope that I am wrong. I would appreciate some thoughts, perhaps to save others from wasting the time upgrade what appears to be a bug fix and perhaps to wait for a more significant upgrade.

I have ordered the 4G LTE model..should be here today according to FedEx site..anyhow..

The 4G LTE from what I have read comes with 4.4.3 which to me is not what I would prefer..for me it seems that KK is a downgrade at this point in its versions..maybe by the time it reaches KK 5.0 it'll make a difference and be pleasent and an actual upgrade..

Wish the new model came with 4.3

The benefits are at best marginal.I've decided that I wont be upgrading due to this and that there are quite a few bugs present in 4.4.3, that werent there in 4.4.2 ......
And yea, also the effort that it invloves is one of the biggest upgrade-breakers to me.
Mental issues lead to the use of long signatures

Care much for receiving Thanks?Bitching at the others about it doesn't help, instead better stfu and gtfo.

Yes, I see 4.4.4 is now out for Nexus devices. So this is possibly the fix for the bugs that are known to be in 4.4.3 (not that I have noticed them - yet). I bet that there is a new update coming out fairly soon!
