New Android 4.3 update coming to Nexus devices

Written by Fudzilla staff

Fixing bugs, and there's no shortage of them

Google is about to roll out a new Android 4.3 update for Nexus devices. Users of the Nexus 4, 7 and 10 should get the update, but as you may have guessed it’s not exactly a big update.

It’s just 2MB in size and it brings no new features. It is however supposed to fix bugs and bring a few security patches. Google’s update history is not stellar to say the least. Android 4.3 simply doesn’t work well on quite a few devices.

Here at Fudzilla we use a few Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 devices, no Nexus 10 though, since it’s rubbish. In our experience, Android 4.3 works quite well on the Nexus 7, but the Nexus 4 is a bit of a disaster.

One Nexus 4 in particular experiences almost daily random reboots or shutdowns and quite a few Google apps tend to misbehave and require a reboot to get sorted. Perhaps the random rebook problem is in fact a feature?

Many Nexus 4 users are reporting similar problems, both on Android 4.2.x or 4.3 – which means it’s probably a hardware issue that’s anything but uncommon on Nexus 4 devices. Of course, Nick Farrell is unaffected as he’s rocking an iPhone.

Android Beat has the lowdown and you can check it out here.
