Nexus 7 Android 4.4.2 KitKat problems emerge

Earlier this week we told you that the Android 4.4.2 update was rolling out on select Nexus devices. Unfortunately though, it looks like some consumers have been experiencing Nexus 7 Android 4.4.2 Kitkat problems specifically, with some issues leading to an abnormal battery drain.

As we told you here, the Android 4.4.2 update was initially touted as a minor update that improved the VM indicator, along with providing some general stability and security fixes.

However, feedback is coming in from users who are saying that the Nexus 7 Android update is causing them problems – with other Nexus devices such as the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 affected as well since updating.

These issues are not widespread just yet, but involve features such as Exchange accounts, Bluetooth connectivity, WiFi issues and even volume problems when using headsets.

There’s also a fairly big problem with the dialer on Android 4.4.2, which has been documented in detail over at Google’s own forums.

If you don’t have the update yet, it may be a blessing in disguise as you may want to wait until a more stable version of Android 4.4.2. is available. Google has already confirmed that there are some teething problems with the update that has just rolled out and are working on fixes as we speak.

Do you have any problems with Android 4.4.2 on the Nexus 7 or any other Android device that has been given the update? List your issues below and we’ll update you when we have something fresh from Google.
