    I'VE had a 25% battery drop off since the update. Also Slacker radio app comes on whenever it feels like it. Plus some other flaky behavior...If I had a chance to upgrade to kit kat again...I would not..

    I bet you your problem is kitkat incompatible apps that are draining your battery. Uninstall everything and your problem will vanish. Then you can reinstall one by one.

    Agreed. Back to normal for me.

    How do I revert back to jelly bean? There's still no improvement on the battery life

    If you are on the Droid Maxx, you cannot revert unless you have a Developer Edition and have unlocked the bootloader.

    Tried that, and it did not work. However, not too worried, still never drops below 40% in one day; where it never dropped below 60 prior to 4.4.

    Kinda hard to let go of those old, favorite, no-longer-updated apps, eh? Thank goodness the NextGen tricorder still works...mostly.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

    I talk, text, use the internet, and other applications throughout the day and I'm easily at 40% within 6 hours. Prior to this update, I could additionally stream music without it dropping below 40%.

    I use tracks a lot, but I'm forever going in and out of service when in the desert; that's where my drain comes from. But nothing has changed since the update in general usage, so I'll say it is due to the 4.4 update.

    And to go along with that is this notice that the X is getting the 4.4.2 update now (wonder when we will get it?), and that is one of the problems that will be fixed with the newest version....
