Oh Well, I guess I'll have to add an app for that, just save lots of battery life while I'm work. Thanks for confirming...

@tailgunner9 - My wifes got the pop-up notification, I was able to push the update on my daughters by manually checking from settings. As far as the update with root, I do not know. Considering that it checks device status (Secure boot) it may not go, especially with Knox being updated to v2.0. @jmoshopoulos - confirmed, the toggle is still absent in this update. That being said you CAN still turn it on and off via >Settings>Connections>More Networks>Mobile networks>Mobile Data. Why they would remove the toggle yet leave the option is beyond me.
So far so good on both devices, after the initial boot start up times are a bit faster, and the whole phone seems to run smoother, like they implimented Butter correctly this time. Apps launch and switch much more quickly and fluidly that in 4.3. Messing with my wifes phone I ahve not encountered any of the wifi, screen lag or stutter that I saw in the 4.3 build. On a side note, ISIS wallet has been forced down our thorat with this update, however a quick change in Google Wallet and you can restore that as your primary "Touch-to-pay" app.

Hear Now that you may not be able to Root Kit Kat also. So be stuck with all of AT&T junk running that most people do not even use or even know what some of it is. I have never had a minute of trouble with my Rooted 4.3 as others describe of their problems. Lucky I guess. Got update 417.66 MB. I know I will loose my Root but will take the chance. Downloading Now..

Just got it installed. I waited till I was home.
So far so good. A bit quicker, I see Beats app
added to programs, not sure what else yet.
I'll be giving it a good going over tomorrow.
No issues yet, and actually a quick download
and install for 417 mb!!!

Nice catch on the pre-installed Beats app, I missed that because I was already using it so I assumed that it was still there from when I installed it. The only other thing I saw that was "new" as far as pre-installed "bloatware" was ISIS, and it disabled that as soon as I saw it. Now running on all 3 of my S4s and I must say battery life seems improved, the device feels faster and more responsive. As I mentioned earlier it's like they got Butter right this time, or KitKat may just handle memory and background tasks differently than JB.
Now if I can only get my Note 8 off of buggy 4.1.2 and on 4.4 like Samsung announced. Wishful thinking on my part AT&T?

I looked for ISIS and don't see it on mine. Is it in apps or running programs and what is it??
