And it is..... auto brightness!

Not sure why, but after going to 4.4.2 my battery life sucks. Nothing helps. I have greenify, AppOps, disable service, and my phone sleeps like a baby. I then turned auto brightness off and my phone battery is back to normal. I can actually go a full day without having to run for a charger now. My screen on time went from 3 hours to 4 hours. My Android OS and And Kernel(OS) went down a lot too.

To fix the issue with brightness, I downloaded Lux AutoBrightness. But only use the "Adjust On Wake" option. It will only adjust brightness once, when you turn the screen on, rather than constantly accessing the ambient light sensor.

Note that I have a GPE HTC One. Folks on Sense may have varying results.

I feel the same way and it is pissing me off. It sucks so bad that I got another phone. I'll give this a try and report back in a few days.

thanks

Unhappy ditto
I made the mistake of actually checking and accepting the update from AT&T recently, and hate it. Absolutely hate it. I want my scrolling gallery on the lock screen back, and the battery life is absolutely horrid, burns it up at least twice as fast. Just posting here to affirm to anyone looking - DO NOT UPDATE.

Now to find a way to step back down, or change the rom entirely...
