Hey, just want to add my bit on upgrading to 4.4.2:

Pros:
- phone is definitely faster and lagging less
- more internal memory free
- more RAM free
- no extensive battery consumption, in fact it seems to be optimised - I literally cant get my phone to 0% of battery
- optimised UI
- more sensitive sound settings

Cons:
- fucking shitload of bloatware
- no normal way of rooting the phone - no one cares about 4.4.2 on this phone so far
- did I say fucking shitload of bloatware?
- no progress bar on music widgets (sucks)
- fucking shitload of bloatware which is impossible to uninstall without rooting

All and all, I'm happy with upgrade. It is far better than I expected after reading all those negative reviews. Only bug I've encountered so far is that brightness of notification LED is fixed on 100%, you can't get it less - but who cares... Phone is slightly faster and less laggy. Only huge downside is that I can't get it root.

I had exactly the same experience for a few hours after 4.4.2 upgrade and hard reset until... I had to encrypt the phone according to my company rules. Since the encryption, it is a nightmare with about 8 seconds lag only to display the agenda or the name of the caller...

Hi guys,

Is anybody here who experienced much slower GPS locking with kitkat than the jelly bean, or it's just me?

People, do not downgrade! If you have a problem, send an email to LG and explain what's wrong, that way they'll be able fix the problem. I personally have no idea what you are talking about because my phone works GREAT after the update.

I finally opened a ticket to LG support and their answer was to keep 4.4.2 but hard reset the phone. After this hard reset and reinstall of all my applications, I would say that the phone is now usable, although a bit slower than it was with 4.1.2.

Not sure that the 4.4.2 upgrade worths it.
