    Android 4.2 - are you finding it buggy?


    Many Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, 7 and 10 owners running 4.2 are raising complaints about bugs in Google's latest release.

    Here's just a few of their gripes:

    • Missing December 2012 in contacts
    • Bluetooth broken
    • Severe battery drain
    • Slow charging times
    • Lockscreen issues
    • Erratic auto brightness
    • Random Reboots

    Have you seen any of the above? Or maybe something different? If so, what device are you running and what are your symptoms?

    Personally, i'm seeing lockscreen issues on my Nexus 4, it just keeps appearing/turning the screen on for no reason just sat on my desk. :(

    It was pretty buggy for me (battery life mainly). Although I put it on by flashing the takju system.img and then upgrading.

    I gave in and just flashed the 4.2 takju stock image, and since then I have had comparatively few problems! (edit: completely started over)

    One of my biggest bugbears is the change in how the camera handles screen rotation. Before 4.2 the buttons would all rotate without interrupting the image.

    Now in 4.2 the whole image freezes, you get the rotation animation, and then the image becomes live again. On the Nexus 4 this might be quite snappy but on the galaxy nexus it is a really annoying interruption.

    Found it buggy and inconsistent around the lock screen and general overall lag on the GNex.

    On my nexus 4 it's not bad, just gives the impression of being generally rushed and a bit of design for designs sake.

    Yes buggy as hell, random reboots, none working wi-fi, poor battery life and lock screen issues. Went straight back to 4.1.2 and all is good in the world again. SGNex

    -Unresponsive

    -"Buttons" goes missing

    -Slow as hell

    The only problem I have had on my N4 is the random screen-on you describe in the last paragraph. It's not frequent but it is annoying when it happens.

    4.2 on my Nexus 7 is really, really slow. Also find the power button to be unresponsive at the best of times. Often have to press it several times before it switches on. Could well be that that's related to the slowness!

    My N7 seems to be suffering from 'Erratic auto brightness' issue, but everything else is fine with the 4.2.

    My Nexus 7 has the annoying auto-brightness all over the place problem and has had a few random reboots (though this might be down to a particular app - HD Widgets seems to cause a reboot each time it updates).

    Haven't noticed any problems with battery life.

    Was pretty unresponsive immediately after the upgrade but seems fine now - lots of apps putting out 4.2 updates so maybe this has helped?

    Right after upgrading my n7, it was nightmarish. Forced closes, Firefox wouldn't start, mx player refused to play, overall sluggishness. Over time apps have upgraded, and now everything is fixed except for the annoying auto brightness all over the place bug.

    I might even say it's faster than before, though it may be the effect of a few days of watching paint dry on the tablet.
