Android 4.3 hasn’t been the most well received update ever; some calling it pointless and others claiming no benefits whatsoever. Well, things are just getting worse as more and more users are reporting that it’s causing major problems on their Nexus 4 handsets.
Over on the Google support forums there are ever growing threads complaining of issues that range from Gapps crashing and poor battery life to boot looping and refusal to boot at all.
Our very own Ravi had initial problems applying the update, but a reset solved things. Others don’t seem to be so lucky, with people being told to return their handsets under warranty or flash 4.2.2 via recovery.
Having said all that, some members of the Coolsmartphone staff are saying the update has made their Nexus 4s slicker with better battery life.
Looks like it’s pot luck at the moment, so if you haven’t applied the update you may want to wait for 4.3.1, just to be safe.
Have you got 4.3 on your Nexus 4? Are you experiencing crashes or worse? Let us know.
