after updating and testing kk my final opinion is that they made a great job with this release. the battery drains very liniar and lasts much longer. i can go 2 days with medium usage. it runs smoother and finaly waking up the phone does not take forever :) i strongly recommend it.

The new update of Germany has a unstable wifi connection. When phone sleeps, the phone automatically disconnects from the wifi network even if i choose not to sleep the wifi in the settings.. Any one experiencing the same problem ???

From Slovenia owning a GT-i9305 on JellyBean 4.3 till 4 days ago. I downloaded 4.4.4 for Germany firmware from Sammobile and istalled it exactly the way Sammobile suggests with Odin 3.09. After whole installation (tok me 3-5 min, because size of OS is 1.6 gigs) phone rebooted and it came on to the new 4.4.4. (no more green battery on top, but in silver color) with all the settings and installed programs i had in 4.3. It was a speed bump i must say. But I did Factory Reset and I got an aditional speed bump prior to the first speed bump when I went from 4.3 to 4.4.4.
Its international, so the only difference is that, when you do Factory Reset, the first default language is German and you just choose your language, afterall, they are all there because its international version.
For 4 days now works like a charm :). I think my phone got roughly 5-10 % longer battery authonomy and 10-15 % speed in everyday usage, mostly in responsivnes of the OS.

I updated to KK 4.4.4 Nordic Country yesterday and until now it looks verry good. For me battery life is like 4.1.2 (i have not installed 4.3). KitKat 4.4.4 work verry smoth and fast and no issue yet. Go to sammobile.com, take 4.4.4 firmware and Odin, then search Youtube for example how to update i9305 via Odin. Dont forget to make a backup
