I got the 4.4 Kit Kat OTA update a couple of weeks ago. I now have to reboot every 2-3 days. The phone is fine for a while, but will then slow right down, to the point where it takes a minute of swiping madly to unlock it.
Clearing out RAM using the task manager also works to free it up. However, it's not really using any more now than it used to on Jelly Bean (1.51 GB vs 1.49 GB). Out of 1.74 GB available.
Anyone have any insight into this? I'd roll back to JB if I could!
Was JB your original OS?
Are you Rooted? If so, you can use Odin to go back to JB....and Titanium Back Up to save and restore all you want.
I myself, went from ICS to an update to Jelly Bean (Extremely lagy and freezing all the time). Held Factory Reset it many time with no success. It was just a sucky phone to use with all these laggy freezing issues. I then went to Kit Kat (4.4.2) Had some other issues and did a Factory Reset. Works like a charm. Just like a brand new phone. Yeah, it takes some time to put everything back they way you had it. I am not rooted, I use Nova Launcher (It has a back up setting on it) I back that up and a few of my widgets. It gave me a chance to clean out the apps I never used.
Now I love this phone again!!!
I am on the AT&T network btw....
