ANDROID 4.2 CALLED ‘ONE OF THE MOST BUG-RIDDEN RELEASES SINCE HONEYCOMB’
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean received widespread acclaim as one of the best updates to the Android operating system to come around in some time. Android 4.2, however, isn’t getting the same praise.Android Police, which first broke the story about Android 4.2 lacking the month of December in its contacts app, has done the dirty work of chronicling the problems encountered so far in Android 4.2 and has found a wide array of issues.
Among other things, Android 4.2 renders Bluetooth “basically broken,” creates random Windows Phone 8-like reboots, severely drains battery life and slows charging time. Taking all this into account, Android Police says that Android 4.2 is “one of the most bug-ridden releases since Honeycomb,” which at least had the excuse of being the first version of Android designed for tablets.
