    Agreed. Back to normal for me.

    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.

    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....
