I also noticed flash player is no longer on the phone.

Not that I used it, but it was nice to have the option. I know HTC was one of the few to have flash.

Yes flash will be missed, but too many vulnerabilities. Everyone going to HTML5. Now is a good time to start using Chrome more, because that was the biggest advantage.

You know the all the new emoticons we received with this new update, well it turns out that, when I text my friend on her HTC LTE 4g running 4.2.2, she only sees about 1/2 of them, and the ones she does are a charcoal color, not the nice colors we see. It would seem that both phones would have to be running 4.4 in order to enjoy them at their fullest. Just saying...

FYI, I installed the Nexus 5's fantastic Google Experience Launcher (now called Google Now Launcher, I believe) onto my One last night and I noticed it showed up in the new "Home Screen" section under Personalize in settings. So, it appears that option is, in fact, used to toggle between different launchers.

I noticed something odd.

Sometimes, on its own, when the phone is turned back on, the WiFi will be "off."

No idea why it does this. And I have no thirdparty wifi apps.

It's not a huge deal but it only started happening with the new update. Anyone else experience this?

So I posted this to the other thread, but my battery is draining more quickly before Kitkat. Down to 53% after taking it off the charger at 7am. So that's about a solid 2 hours and 45 minutes. Tried draining the battery completely, and then recharging to 100%. Then I tried the factory reset. No dice on both of these. And no, I will not disable syncing, GPS, or any of the other things I used to be able to run prior to Kitkat without these battery issues. If I wanted a crippled phone, I wouldn't have an HTC One.

Now, my texts are not working. I use the stock app and I can't send a receive texts. The only way is for me to text is to use the SMS option with the Google Hangouts app or Google Voice.

I'm not going to go nuts and say this is frustrating, but it's kind of annoying.

That is definitely not normal. My battery life has improved significantly since the update.
