Whenever a new version of Android launches each supported device will have varied issues, and the best way to see what issues there have been is on the Google Product Forums. While we are not surprised Android 4.3 features new bugs for the Nexus 4, we wonder why fans of the platform only believe iOS has such problems following an update?
The problem is no matter what platform you are on there will be issues following an update, but it seems those on Android rub it in iOS user’s faces. Having said that, we can understand why they would want to side with their chosen platform, and stick it to those on iOS.
Back to the news at hand; if you have a Nexus 4 and are running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, then there have been issues from the moment they downloaded and installed the OS. One of the most talked about Nexus 4 Android 4.3 bugs is freezing on the X Splash screen, although there is another issue, and this is being stuck in a boot-loop, which never seems to end.
There is a Nexus 4 Android 4.3 fix, which takes the handset back to factory default or flash the device to an older version of Android. However, there is an issue with this as you will lose all of your saved data.
It is unknown if this is an isolated issue or more widespread, although looking on the Google Product Forum, these issues are growing, and so it would seem the team behind the OS will have to try and find a permanent fix, and soon. It’s not just the Nexus 4 that has had some issues, as the Galaxy S4 review following the update has not gone down too well either.
