I have been going through this thread, and see a LOT of problems after updates.. I dont know I am just plain lucky or what, but since I have upgraded to 4.4.2 a couple of months back (i am in India), I see absolutely NO problems. No battery issue(games/wifi/Data ON, calls, normal usage, 30% left at the end of day). No overheating. Dont see Google Play as top battery drainer. Just nothing !!
My running versions are -
Android Version - 4.4.2
GOogle Play - 5.0.89
Build Number - 10.5.A.0.230
The only problem I can see is RAM consumption - which stays at around 60% to 70%. Still I dont see any lags. So I am not too worried about it as well.
Changes in Settings >
1. I have disabled 3G - changed it to 2G - see if it helps ?
2. Those having issues with home screen lag - modify "animations" setting in Developer Options.
Apart from above two, I have done no changes in configuration. Have done no resets since I bought this phone a year back. I dont reboot it even for 3/4 days at a stretch.

My ZL recently received an update to 4.4.2 over the air from T-Mobile. Right after the update, the phone stopped playing videos in Facebook and the video camera does not record sound. I contacted support and was told to reinstall the update using PC companion after saving my data. I moved all photos, videos and music to the sd card and back up other data using PC companion. After reinstalling the update, I found that the data saved through PC companion was gone. Worse,the sd card immediately reported as corrupted. Why did updating with PC Companion corrupt the card and why wasn't there a warning? I have a new SD card.and some of the photos had backed up to my laptop automatically (back when I had Windows 7. I am now at Windows 8.1 and that has resulted in other problems which are best reported on another site). Anyway, I still can't take video with sound or play videos in Facebook. I have restarted the phone, uninstalled and reinstalled Facebook, cleared the cache, etc. Any suggestions?
