KITKAT IS A DISASTER. Updated yesterday. Texting is ridiculously slow. Battery life horrible

WHAT HAPPENED?  ever since I updated my phone has turned lazy.  Battery is dieing fast and texting is slow.  No, not slow, more like molasses in Antarctica.  Other applications are slow too.  I initially attributed it to old apps not being fully compatible with new version.  Not even texting works right.  In fact, this app native to the phone, is the worst one.
  Even the wifi becomes unresponsive even though other tablet or laptop is using the same without problem.

I restarted, cleared the ram, shut down all other apps.

Fixes?  or should I jump to the fire phone?
