With every new update on OS, an end-user expects to get improvement in either the built or performance. However instead of bringing improvements, the update of Android OS KitKat 4.4.2 on Samsung Galaxy S4 has done the opposite, it has number of bugs. This update has been seeded to US carriers as well as to the international models of the phone.
One of the major bugs the users have faced is the battery drainage. It has been reported that there is huge decline in battery timing right from the time when update has been done. Even one of the users has reported that there was a drop of 30% after getting new update of Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The drop was from 100% and it took 20 minutes of web browsing and 2 hours and 40 minutes of stand-by mode. Some of the users have been claiming this new update of Android as mess for their Samsung Galaxy S4. According to the report, there is a lag in the performance of the cell phone. The update has made the phone too lazy to open apps, to switch between them and even on closing them while moving back to the home screen. It has also been seen that there is a lag in menu opening as well. What has made this fast paced mobile device, a piece of drag!
There is another bad thing with this update. Users have to unlock their phone with black lock screen. It is another bug of KitKat, Android 4.4.2. There are still no official words from Samsung regarding this update, are they going to fix these bugs or when they are going to fix these bugs.

Open clock or personal message, clock will help you with the black screen thing.
