Along with the normal security updates, bug fixes, and security enhancements, this update will help some users squeeze a little more battery life from their phones through the addition of Extreme Power Saving Mode, which shuts off unnecessary functions when the battery gets low.
Even though this isn’t actually Android 4.4.4, this update still contains the security fixes of the latest version of Android, so users shouldn’t be too worried about one little number.
To check if the update is ready for your phone, simply navigate to Settings > Phone Update > Check for Update.[Twitter via Android and Me]
