Nexus 4 users on Android 4.3 eye 5.0 update


We touched on some Nexus 4 heating problems with the Android 4.3 update just over a week ago, which was then followed up with a list of the issues found so far with the OTA Nexus 4 update. These articles receive a lot of feedback and way more Android 4.3 problems than we first saw, although it is fair to say not all of these issues are experienced by all users with some being isolated cases.

Nexus 4 users on Android 4.3 eye 5.0 update — towards the end of last month we noted that the Android Key Lime Pie release date was closing in pretty fast, and we expect it to be on the horizon. After taking a look at some of the latest rumors, it seems that Android 5.0 will launch on higher end devices around October time.

Now that we have seen so many complaints from Nexus 4 users running the Android 4.3 update, it is also worth noting that a growing number of these people are putting the current problems aside and looking towards Android 5.0. Nexus 4 owners know they will be one of the first to receive this update, which could also appear on a new handset like the Nexus 5.

You can read some insight into the Nexus 5 after the Moto X phone release and how some people have a few worries. After looking at different specs, we have to wonder if the Nexus 5 will launch this year now that the Moto X is here? One thing is clear with a lot of fans, and this is that there’s a lot of hope still for LG to make the Nexus 5 and for a launch event in October.

Expected specs and features for Nexus 5 at the time of writing include: Key Lime Pie 5.0, Dual speakers, 2700mAh removable battery, 13MP camera with stabilisation, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 at 2.3GHz and a 5.2-inch full HD 1080p IPS display.

If you own the Nexus 4 and have problems after installing Android 4.3, do you look towards the Nexus 5 update or just installing Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie on your current phone?

    I’ve been running 4.3 on my Nexus 4 for about a week, and the only hiccup that I keep experiencing is when the phone is connected to my Chromecast, the phone will shut down while in sleep mode. It’ll take a long pressed power button to restart the phone. Hopefully Google addresses issues plaguing the update. Even before KLP

    I am not sure whether Google does regression testing on their devices. They need to have a huge repository of test cases to identify any potential bugs before releasing the OS version for public as such.
