could people tell me if it's worth going to 4.4.4 from 4.3. I want to know if most of the issue from the 4.4.3 kitkat version has been fixed now with the new update and how good is the battery life now? Any overheating or random reboots?

It's much better than 4.4.2
Smooth,no battery drain,better multitask...etc
I think .283 is worth update

i just updated mine to 4.4.4.. and upon fresh first install, it was very laggy, and it was overheating very badly that i had to power off to cool it down... not a promising start...

In my opinion... it does worth!
Soon after I had updated, I've already noticed the incredible change: No graphics lag! (No 2D GPU rendering anymore)
With two days of testing I had the conclusion that the battery lasts an average of 16 hours! Said "average" because of the continuous use of the device. I was listening to musics, using Skype in conferences, 3G/4G active all day long.

Conclusion: Feeling free of the lag from the previous update, and although the continuous use I got 16 hours of battery, and now it is not overheating and not noticed "freezes" on the screen. I can assure you it's worth the update!

the launcher for mine seems laggy, notification pull down still laggy, though battery seems strong now and overheating is over with.... i thought they got over this lag, in 4.4.4, but for mine still seems to be here.. makes me miss 4.3 that so much...

4.4.2 was so bad, I had went back to 4.3.... Upgraded to 4.4.4 and its great.... no issues... battery life is about the same as 4.3... its smoother than 4.3, and phone temp range is about the same as 4.3.... overall its pretty good
