I've updated my phone to android 4.3 yesterday. But I've found some bugs:

1) Battery is draining much faster
2) I can't remove the Maximum Volume limit when u plug in your earphone. The pre-set maximum volume is too low for my taste. This ruins my music listening experience.
3) Slower Touch responsiveness. Try playing "Flappy Bird" and you'll see the difference. The screen registers my touch half a second later. This really annoys me.
4) No "Screenshot" shortcut when u press the power button. You have to press the power + Volume Down button.

Please let me know if any of you face the same issues like mine and advice how to rectify these problems, especially removing the Maximum volume limit (I really enjoy listening to music in high volume in the Commuter/LRT/Bus on my way to work) and the Touch responsiveness (Flappy Bird is a MUST!). Thanks
