Default Anyone experiencing faster battery drain on 4.4.2?

I updated to 4.4.2 a few days ago and am noticing faster battery drain. Just curious if anyone else noticed this?

Yup. Have tried factory resetting twice. Clearing cache. Disabling nearly everything possible. No avail.

Mine was draining a bit faster than normal after the update. I let it run all the way down, and charged it up, and it has been fine since then.
Hope it works out for you guys.

Yes mine is really bad. i even lowered the brightness. like it loses 1% every two minutes even though its screen is off. I gotta get Zerolemon battery or use SetCPU. Does any other 4.4.2 devices have battery drain?

Ive gotten better battery performance since setting up Battery Guru and disabling all app refresh unless I open them. Still seeing very fast battery drain, but it's definitely improved.

YUP. I work 3rd shift and used to be able to go all night with one charge. Streaming music on wifi all night. Now I have to recharge at lunch.

Yeah I've noticed that the battery life is a little worse than the past two updates.

Default FAst drain slow charge

The battery on mine would drain quick and charge forever. It would take me close to 12 hours charging it to be full. Any help?

Default Camera bug = Battery Drain

Did some looking around, and it appears to be a bug related to the camera (i know, sounds a little odd).

Here's one link of many I've found regarding this issue...Samsung has acknowledged an issue and is working on a fix:
