It has only been a few days since we saw custom users taking advantage of the Nexus 7 Jelly Bean 4.2 update, although since then we’ve seen the latest Android software being launched officially and at the same time it has been met with numerous problems. We’ve had a few emails from PR readers, a number comments on our website, and also seen a lot of forums filled with complaints from both users that installed the Android 4.2 update on their Google Nexus 7, and also those that bought it new with the Jelly Bean software already installed.
Types of issues being reported with Nexus 7 Jelly Bean — it is fair to say not every user has a problem, and some people explained that they have a bug free install. The Nexus 7 users reporting issues have mentioned a wide range of problems with Jelly Bean, but some of the most common include random rebooting, Wi-Fi dropping out often, killing apps randomly, lag on screen rotation, and a few users have experienced the brightness fluctuating when in lighting that’s not changing.
Again we have to stress that we’ve had a 50/50 split with users that have issues with Android 4.2, and those that have the update with no problems at all. One of the most common complaints seems to focus around the screen, and a flicker or change in brightness, so feel free to let us know if your device has this problem and if it had been there before the update?
Are you one of the Google Nexus 7 owners that have problems since updating to Jelly Bean 4.2? We have a Nexus 7 test model in our office and have installed the Jelly Bean 4.2 update, but personally we’ve had no major problems apart from some lag when rotating the tablet.
