Have you been experiencing any bugs since updating your Nexus device to Android 4.4.3?

On the whole, Android 4.4.3 was meant to fix a bunch of bugs, most notably the battery drain which was tied to the camera software. There were also fixes put in place to stabilize network connectivity and notifications.
SMS and MMS through Hangouts needed some work too, along with making support for Exchange Active Sync more reliable was part of the repertoire too. The dialer in Android 4.4.3 is refreshed as well. All-in-all, things are looking fairly solid, but some new bugs seem to be emerging from the bugs that were squashed.
On Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 devices, it appears that some units are experiencing trouble with Wi-Fi connectivity. For Nexus 4 devices, it appears some that were having random reboot issues under Android 4.4.2 continue to experience the same after the update to 4.4.3.
Some Nexus 5 owners appear to notice new lag when selecting the “all contacts” option from the new dialer. There has been no official word from Google, but it is certain that the gang in Mountain View knows about the deal.
How about you? Did you update your Nexus device to Android 4.4.3? How is everything running?

9am to 9pm with 50% left on one charge with 4.4.3. 9am to 9pm with 30% left with one recharge during the day with 4.4.2. Way better! Nexus 5. All I can say is turn off Google Location and Reporting in location settings. Should help the most.

battery is draining a little faster than before on my nexus 5 but i am not having any problems with wifi connectivity. google now launcher (still) creates an additional home screen page for no reason, that bug isn't fixed as yet...maybe it has nothing to do with kitkat.

I have a rooted Nexus 4 and every app is crashing and consuming more RAM than ever, and therefore more battery too. I used to reach 1GB of RAM with several apps running at the same time, and now I've got that amount in idle status. Also the camera app is crashing a lot, making my device reboot. I would love to see Google updating again and solving those problems.

I can't say anything about battery life because I changed jobs, so it's impossible to compare the new office, where I get 2 to 3 bars on LTE, with the old one, where got only 1 bar on a good day. The weird thing was the next day from the update, when a message about a new SIM card having been insert, which wasn't the case, and the need to reboot.

My battery drained really fast compared to 4.4.2. It lost about 1% battery per 20-30 minutes standby. I cleared the system cached yesterday and now it's back to normal. Now it's 1% per 4-5 hours. If you experience any issues try with clearing the system cache.

I haven't experienced any lag or battery drain, but I have had a few problems with lockscreen widgets and some other general UI components taking a while to load. Nothing major, but I've seen it enough times to notice.
