    Downloading 4.4 (Verizon) as we speak, though it's ridiculously slow.

    Here is Verizon's changelog:

    http://support.verizonwireless.com/content/dam/support/pdf/system_update/htc-one.pdf

    Really not too much to crow about...improved gallery...a few improvements to Blinkfeed...Do Not Disturb. Feels a lot more like a minor update.

    Strangely, it seems as though ART is completely missing. At least I can't find the option to switch from Dalvik in the developer settings, like I can on the Moto X. Go figure.

    Anyone experiencing poorer battery life since the update and if so, has anyone found a fix?

    I think the baseband has been updated -- seem to be seeing better performance with that over 4.3. Otherwise I haven't noticed any other major changes.

    It's been fairly uneventful so far. Probably the update I like the most are the improvements to the Gallery. A bit more customization in Blinkfeed too.

    I got mine last week I think. Change in the icons in the notification bar. Gallery, and also Browser seems different but can't tell because I never use the stock browser.

    I also noticed you can turn BlinkFeed off. I might be late with this but just found out

    When my brother first got the update, battery life was horrible, but after a factory reset it appears to be better than before the update. I'm hoping this is a common theme for kitkat.
