Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 Android 4.4.3 update started rolling out barely a few weeks ago and while this update was expected to fix the bugs which were first noticed when Android 4.4.2 KitKat started rolling out, it seems that Android 4.4.3 just made the matter worse by bringing in some of its own bugs and issues.
Nexus update brings in
fixes more bugs
This 4.4.3 update has affected quite a number of devices; the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 4 smartphones seem to be experiencing the most issues. We already talked about a few issues with the Android 4.4.3 update previously, but as more people update, more reports of bugs are coming in.
One of these issues is WiFi connectivity in Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 devices. This could also be happening to other devices but these two seem to be taking the most brunt. Whether the issue is an unstable connection or a weak signal isn’t yet clear, but what we know as now is, that a lot of people are having issues with their WiFi.
Then we’re seeing Nexus 4 owners experiencing random reboots after updating to the Android 4.4.3. This was an issue that is being reported since the Android 4.4.2 and it seems to have carried over into the new update as well. Nexus owners are even experiencing bugs with notifications, battery life, exchange email services and 3G connectivity. Some users are seeing bugs with the BBC application, others are having issues with the new dialer and some are even experiencing random errors with the Google Play Store application.
From the looks of it, the bugs people are experiencing all seem random; there’s isn’t really any identifiable pattern as of yet. Not everyone is having these issues and they are not easily reproducible. This is probably why another update may not be pushed anytime soon. We could see a small hot fix sent out but Google will most likely hold off on fixing anything else until the next major Android update. The only thing we can suggest now is to do a factory reset, if you’re experiencing random bugs with your 4.4.3 update.
