The LG-made Google Nexus 4 got an update to the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but some users report issues following the upgrade.
Some problems apparently occurred after the Nexus 4 got an OS bump to the latest Android version, as users started complaining about overheating, decreased performance and other issues.
The Nexus 4 already had a few minor issues before getting the Android 4.3 over-the-air (OTA) update, but things have reportedly taken a wrong turn. According to Phones Review, some of its readers listed the issues they experienced since upgrading to the latest version of Jelly Bean.
One of the publication's readers said that the photospheres and panoramic modes became considerably slower after installing the Android 4.3 update onto their LG Nexus 4 smartphone. Issues also arose with geo-tagging photos. Meanwhile, their GPS was reportedly turned on but the images were saved without coordinates. As Phones Review notes, it remains unclear at this point whether these issues are stemming from some bug in the Android 4.3 OS update.
Other reported issues following the Nexus 4 update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean include performance problems. One user complained of a decrease in performance after the update, with gaming as the most affected. According to that user, playing the simplest game such as Candy Crush, which is far from a performance-draining game, results in shuttering and frame-rate drops.
Smartphones generally heat up a little when playing games, but that's usually not an issue. Some Nexus 4 owners apparently noticed some overheating after the update. Overheating occurs when the processor is working overtime, which means that the operating system shouldn't carry the blame. On the other hand, one of the publication's readers noted that rooting and flashing revolt ROM will fix the overheating issue when playing games. We cannot vouch for that at this point.
The latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean recently made its debut on the new Nexus 7 tablet and was quickly rolled out to other devices in the Nexus family, including the popular Nexus 4. The update brings several new features and functionality and, in some cases, it seems that it brings some issues as well. Let us know if you have experienced any issues with your Nexus 4 following the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update.
