It appears that Google may have one or two things to iron out with their new Android 4.2 update. After launching the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 with the new version of Android, we’ve had a continuation of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean problems occur to those who have already begun using Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on other devices, such as the Nexus 7 after a recent custom update became available.
Over the weekend, we initially told you about Android 4.2 problems that users were experiencing when using the software on the Nexus 7 tablet. Now though, these problems have extended onto the Galaxy Nexus as well, with a collection of bugs that are causing consumers considerable hassle.
One popular issue that had been doing the rounds online, was the rather silly bug which caused the December listing to be missed out on the Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.2, when inside the contact lists app and organizing birthdays. You can see over on Google’s official Android project website that the problem wasn’t affecting a minority, but rather all users who had already installed Android 4.2 on their Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 as well.
That isn’t the only gripe with Android 4.2 though, as a problem compilation by Android Police details some of the other issues related to Android 4.2 as well, specifically an annoying auto-brightness bug that appears to be affecting Nexus 7 users more than Galaxy Nexus devices.
Bluetooth appears to be having major problems functioning on the Galaxy Nexus as well, while in worst cases some users are also complaining about random reboots which obviously needs to be fixed up asap by Google. As far as we’re aware, the collection of issues all appeared strictly after updating to Android 4.2, so Google are going to have their work cut out to solve the problems and try to keep users happy.
Are you still experiencing Android 4.2 problems on the Galaxy Nexus? Keep checking Google’s official project website here and we’ll inform you ourselves if Google plan to issue a swift update before the end of the week.
