    To be expected until the phone sorts it's new 'self' out. Give it a few days.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

    The only thing I really noticed is a huge change in the time my device is awake. But I think that was just a change in how accurate it is

    Poor battery life? No. Worse battery life? Yes. It's been a little better since the Play Services silent update last week (well, maybe two weeks ago), but it's still slightly worse than before.

    I had the Amazon MP3 app go berserk on me two days ago, took about 25% of my battery life in 3 hours, after I had purchased and downloaded a song. It's been behaving better since, but check for rogue apps.

    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.
