Android 4.4.3 Spotted Wild - Bug Fixer

We first got wind of the Android 4.4.3 update earlier this week thanks to a rumor that claimed that the software is currently undergoing testing and that it includes a fix for a battery draining camera bug. Now more details of the impending update have surfaced, including a fairly lengthy list of other bug fixes.
An Android Police source claims to have a test build of Android 4.4.3 running on a Nexus 5, and according to this tipster, the update is focused on maintenance rather than introducing new features. The list of fixes that the update currently includes is as follows:
  • Frequent data connection dropout fix
  • mm-qcamera-daemon crash and optimization fixes
  • Camera focus in regular and HDR modes fixes
  • Power Manager display wakelock fix
  • Multiple Bluetooth fixes
  • Fix for a random reboot
  • App shortcuts sometimes got removed from launcher after update
  • USB debugging security fix
  • App shortcuts security fix
  • Wi-Fi auto-connect fix
  • Other camera fixes
  • MMS, Email/Exchange, Calendar, People/Dialer/Contacts, DSP, IPv6, VPN fixes
  • Stuck in activation screen fix
  • Missed call LED fix
  • Subtitle fixes
  • Data usage graph fix
  • Internet telephony fix
  • FCC compliance fix
  • Miscellaneous fixes
That’s a pretty lengthy list of tweaks, no? It’s been a couple of months since Google first pushed Android 4.4.2 to its Nexus devices, but it looks like the lengthy wait for Android 4.4.3 will be worth it thanks to the inclusion of all of these enhancements. Of course, we’ll have to wait until the public rollout begins before we know for sure what goodies the update will bring, but so far it’s shaping up to be a pretty nice bug fixer.
