Android 4.4.3 KitKat starts to roll out and causes issues for Nexus 7

Google recently started to roll out the latest version of the Android operating system for smartphones and tablets. Those that have been waiting around for this version were happy to hear that Google finally got around to rolling it out, even though it is only a minor update.

This week, chatter about the update has been getting more frequent and that includes those that are complaining that the updated software is causing issues for their Nexus 7 tablet. The new software is supposed to be taking care of some of the issues that came with the Android 4.4.2 software, but it might have a few problems of its own.

The first rumor about the Android 4.4.3 started back in March and the buzz has been picking up little by little every since then. Now that the public is aware of the software, it is time to watch as it rolls out to those that have the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 devices. Some of the problems that came with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat software included MMS, Wi-Fi, Exchange and some minor issues with the camera applications.

Because Android 4.4.3 is considered a minor update, it will be used to fix up the bugs that came along with the other software update. Google’s forums are getting packed with users that are complaining about the latest version of the Android software. It does not appear to be issues that are solely hitting one device as users with the Nexus 4 or Nexus 5 have both been complaining.

The main issues are coming as users complain about Wi-Fi connectivity, which is something that has been an issue in past updates. Other issues include some that are apparently only happening with the Nexus 4.

Issues like having no contacts listed, instead being met with a blank screen in the call history page. The phone dialer is apparently crashing as well. When trying to dial a number, the contact names show up, but when touching the contact info, nothing happens and then a message about the crash pops up. There is apparently a large gap between getting a phone call and when the contacts name actually shows up on the phone. Another typical and old complaint seems to be centered around battery drain, which we all know is a very hot topic.
