    Personally I went from 3-5 reboots a day to zero. Not one since I disabled it. (And I still use live wallpapers and have 5 HD Widgets widgets.
    Semi official word from Google says Computer World. http://www.androidauthority.com/andr...x-soon-136835/

    I have disabled locked screen widgets and so far today no reboots. I am hoping, but others have said even disabling those has only helped temporarily. Then again my issue is freezing up more than rebooting though that has happened too.

    Same problem here. I've had the tablet for almost two weeks. I called today to return before the remorse period is over.

    Its too bad though. I liked the tablet but I just don't want to gamble on a hope that an update fixes this issue.

    Hardly a fatal flaw. Since I implemented the fix I have not had on lock up or reboot.

    The fix of course is just to turn off location services. Since you said you were returning your Nexus 10 to get an iPad, which doesn't have GPS anyways, what are you really missing out on?

    Until the next update you leave GPS off when you don't need it. After the next update you leave it on all the time. That's still better than the iPad that will never have GPS. Again hardly a "fatal flaw"

    Agreed,,,, perhaps my wording of fatal flaw was a bit harsh,,, but with that being said I had read complaints about the Nexus 10 just becoming completely un-responsive and in those examples they had the same issues to start out with that I started having.

    I do plan on buying another Nexus 10,,, but only after it looks like the bugs have been clearly fixed.

    i replaced the first nexus 10 i got and called google today about the reboots they started getting worse but i've noticed that the issues i've been have which have been the lock up and reboots have happened alot when i'm using my blutooth head phones. i turned off location going to see if that works. When i called google this morning i asked about any fix for the issues i was told that they were not aware of any complaints and that they didn't know if there was a fix being worked on all they did was send me rma to send my nexus back and are sending me a replacement.

    Fair enough. Let's call it a tragic flaw instead. (Since it is tragic that you and many others have to go without one because of this issue).

    I love that when companies deny there is a problem with a product they sell when they know in fact they do have a problem,,,,,,, reminds me of Vizio, they are the worst when it comes to owning a problem with one of their products,, thousands and thousands or reports online and on all the forums and on Amazon about the LED lights failing on ALL their soundbars,, and then when ya call Vizio to see if there is a fix they deny any probelms what-so-ever,,,, very funny to be honest.

    Take in consideration that most of the techs that are at the call centre know next to nothing about any pressing/ongoing issues - Google has stated, as a company, that they're working on a fix (and are aware of it). I've had my Nexus 10 since around 17:00 on Monday - no reboots, no freezing, no lockups. I turned Location Services off first-thing. The only problem I had was that I had to update twice for the Nexus to accept the update fully. I haven't seen any conflicts or lack of functionality due to lack of location services; other than Facebook/Twitter apps being unable to locate me (woo, huge problem - sarcasm ;p .. I never posted my location to begin with).

    I've tried everything and still keep getting the random reboots and yesterday my table started freezing a lot wasn't having that problem before it's frustrating
    this was my first Nexus device and will be my last i sold my samsung galaxy tab 10.1 for this one and it's been nothing but headaches i've already replaced two tabs and i'm on my third becasue google keeps telling me to replace the unit and i asked them about a fix and tech support told me they were not aware of any issues can you believe that BS i'm very dissappointed with this device Samsung built a great tab for google and google messed it up. I really don't know if i can wait for a software fix. Feel like taking the tab and smashing it.

    Disabling the location services did nothing to solve the problem for me. Usually locks up, freezes, and reboots when using chrome.

    Waiting on a fix. I don't understand those that return such an amazing device over something so minor. When adopting a device early in its life, there are growing pains. Developers are working on it...

    Minor, no rebooting 7 or 8 times a day while just browsing the Internet, is just not acceptable. I have own many new products that never had this issue. It was poor testing of 4.2.1 plain and simple.

    Also, Google unlike many companies does not yet have a track record that gives people a high level of confidence in a rapid fix. $500 for a rebooting device might be minor to you but I am not willing to bet my $500 at this point. Hopefully they do fix it and if I have not opted to buy a competing product I will give it another go. Till then the ball is in their court.

    I'm experiencing the lock up while browsing in Chrome as well. It seems to happen most often when I open external links from a different app. I uninstalled the updates for Chrome and then disabled location services and it still locks up between 2-5 times a day. So, I've been using Firefox browser, which works fairly well and had a minor hiccup there as well. My last resort is Dolphin browser or another alternative before I pull the plug and send it back.

    I too have owned many new devices right on release day and had many problems like this. When buying later in its life, I rarely have these kind of problems. As for Google's track record, nexus devices should not be classified in the same breath as Verizon/Motorola/Google devices or at&t/Htc/Google devices, or any other combination. The red tape there is prohibitive which speaks toward the popularity of the nexus 4. I'm not trying to make excuses for Google, but just like I had to take in my brand new car for an ecu update to address issues and concerns in the first year of the new model, I am not surprised to have to receive an update from Google. It's unfortunate, but the alternative is to wait a number of months for the issues to be worked out, just like many people wouldn't buy a new car the year it's being updated. You always have the option to return yours.

    Same here since I stopped using chrome... it's been much better.

    But you are making excuses for Google. Bottom line is the most recent update 4.2.1 for many has created more problems than it solved. It was released to bring the multi-profiles. It introduced the freezing, rebooting, sluggishness and poorer battery life. Sorry Google gets no pass for such a poorly tested release. If they want to play with the big dogs they damn well better get it together.

    When your car was updated it solved what it was suppose too, not introduce more problems. Updates are fine, all products generally get them, but 4.2.1 evidently was poorly tested cause there is thread after thread of the issues I mentioned above since its release. A company like Google's support should not recommend RMA's as a solution but, they have me on 4 or 5 occasions now.

    When my car was introduced, it had issues. Then they put out a fix for it. Problem solved. Mazda did a poor job testing their product but now it's fixed. My wife's Toyota just had a recall. Chevy just had a recall. Should we never buy any of those products? Am I making excuses for them? I don't think so. I wasn't happy waiting for my car fix, but I'm happy now and I would definitely buy another Mazda or Toyota. Same holds true here.

    Google put out a great product and they can't keep them stocked as they're selling so well. Return yours and they'll resell it so fast they couldn't care less. To say that they can't compete with the big boys for a problem like this is a bit over the top. You're just angry. They put out a great product and they screwed up with this update. This isn't a terminal flaw like hardware might be, this should be a fix they'll have fairly soon. I'm not happy when mine reboots, but I know a fix is on the way. Truthfully, can we even name a brand that hasn't had these kind of issues? Short of offering you a refund, what other option do they have? What do you expect them to offer you? A free trip to Disney? A fix is on the way from my understanding...

    Is that still making excuses or perhaps a more calm and realistic take on what's really going on?

    Yes still making excuses for a poorly tested update. You can but as much spin on it as you wish, but that does not change the reality of it. I am not angry but I am not in denial either. I expected them to test this update to insure it did not create more problems than it fixed. They failed, I was offered an RMA over and over as if that was the solution. I have had iPad's and I have never had the problem of them restarting and freezing. They have had other minor issues all fixed in a timely manner. No device is perfect, but freezing and restarting should get a high priority for a fix. So perhaps if support says, we are aware and absolutely are working on a quick fix. In the mean time try doing the following. Instead I was told sorry we can give you an RMA. You defending this? I believe if Google plans to be a big boy in this business they need to work on their customer service and support. Not to mention a better job testing their updates. I do not think this is an unreasonable expectation or request.

    Apple has not been able to meet demand on a few products this holiday season, but that does not mean they are above screwing up. I do not think their support suggest an RMA instead of trying to help solve the problem first and that is the difference.

    I actually didn't make a single excuse for them and I said they screwed up. I implore them to be more careful in the future, but that is a separate issue as it doesn't help us here. Come to terms with the fact that they didnt work out all the bugs. Complaining incessantly isnt helping anything at this point. Sorry Google isn't offering you something more to make you happy while you wait for the fix. Yes, I am defending customer services actions at THAT point seeing as all devices have the same issue and there is currently no fix. You know they are working on. For the second time I ask, what else can they offer you?! Perhaps you'd be happier with an ipad. Clearly google is willing to take your device back. Maybe you should take them up on it!

    Yeah are incessantly defending them and you can try to spin it otherwise, but it's clear. I already told you what they need to learn to do. I do not need to get over anything! I have not said a single thing that is not supported by my experience and the facts. I am not going to suddenly change my mind because you don't like my post.. Maybe you need to get over it. I think I have brought up some valid concerns.

    Clearly all you want to do is whine. You continue to accuse me of things without any evidence (such as defending googles screw up) simply because I am calling you on your whining. You avoid answering questions such as what you want cs to do. You stated a while back that you want them to tell you there is a fix coming and you want to complain that you want it faster. You already know that its coming! You're not happy with the speed there, so you attack Google and anyone that disagrees with you.

    This convos is taking away from the forum and the thread. We've both stated our pieces, you just are so angry that you want to keep whining. Lets let the thread get back on track. Good luck with your device or your return. I'm done here. You can have the last word.

    I joined this form because this forum seemed great for new android and nexus people like myself, but then they turned up whinging continuously saying nothing constructive and yet defending apple to the end. Even lying about having an open eco-system like android.

    You keep replying so don't. I laid out legit issues that I and others are having. No one is whining, we just expect better from Google as we should. If everyone was happy go lucky they may think it's okay to put out bad updates. Hopefully the next one will fix the issues without adding more.

    Wow this is the SECOND [ well, third if you count both posts in this thread: http://forums.androidcentral.com/goo...ml#post2483103 ] time you have accused me of "lying about having an open eco-system". In fairnes i can only be 1005sure the posts int he other thread were directed at me [becuase you said so] but becuse of the nature ofthose posts I think it is fair to lump this one in them.

    I think perhaps we have a communication issue. In order to show you that there are folks who do more than whine and do nothing constructive I'll attempt to elaborate and clear up our communication misunderstanding. Now, by my understanding of an closed Ecosystem it means that if I buy a car [We'll call it an iCar for FUN] and for that car I can only buy gas from 1 place then that is a closed ecosystem. Perhaps my car iCar can use that gas to drive to ANY fast food joint and I am free to get whatever fast food I want from them, but I still have to buy my iCar gas from the iCar gas station [No Sunnoco or BP for me ] .

    So I would like wise believe that If I have to download my Angry Birds App for my hand held device from from a single store and cannot download it elsewhere that then my handheld device would have a closed eco system. Now I freely admit my understanding of open and closed business eco-systems may be incorrect. But then that would make me misinformed not a liar. Just the same way as if I answered a post about "what would apple do if their iPads were randomly rebooting?" in a light hearted manner poking fun at some of the problems with Apple and their devices it would be called joking or kidding not lying.

    Hopefully this clears up my portion of any miscommunication that may have occured. Now we can happliy return to answering questions, helping others, voicing serious concerns and goofing around by having alittle bit of fun.

    I think your skills are improving.
