It's like android 4.4.2 or 4.3. Nothing special and no s5 features.

Yeah, I actually bit the bullet and just flashed it. My real concern was that it had the initial 442 release issues, but Ive been running it alittle while as I set it up and it seems nice and smooth, but being from UK I also flashed the XXUFNB9 UK Modem as well and all seems fine.

Your right friend, There are no differences apart from it seeming a little smoother, a few Icon changes and updated apps and some God awful bloatware crap that you can thankfully uninstall without being rooted.

Ill report back in a few days on Battery life and reception once modem settles.

cheers

Feels smooth yes, except messaging and hangouts, which stutter a lot on opening/using/closing.

Downloaded and flashed last night, all in all i cannot see any visible difference versus GNE8 (last official build), but using it, it does seems a tad quicker, but the main difference is my battery life is way better.

I always wipe data/cache an cycle the battery but all the latest builds over the last few months have been worse on battery life (though others do not have this issue), but for me since taking off charge this morning, 5hrs later only a 7% drop, versus 20% before.

Are you guys updating using Odin or OTA? It still hasn't hit OTA as far as I can see?
