[Q] Kitkat regret, terrible battery and other issues
I just updated to Kitkat 3 days ago. I am not rooted and did not do a full wipe first. Everything seemed to go smoothly. I do like a few features of the noticeably smoother and faster operation and I do think the camera is better. BUT other things have gone way backwards for me anyway. First the battery life I would say is honestly about 50% of what it was. Used to be no battery loss over night now 8%. 15 minutes of screen time today and down to 92%. GSAM lists almost all battery being used by Kernal (android OS). If I hit the accessibility menu I get a message " Unfortunately, accessibility has stopped". And also I finally had found my perfect Browser Habit Browser but now the text size option and no reflow will work. In particular XDA forum really has some weird huge the tiny font as scrolling thru the page. This is with other browsers too. I guess my best bet is to do a full reset. I am looking for recommendations for the best backup to get me as close to where I am now. Helium, LG backup are my first thoughts. Thanks.
