    Default Nexus 4 crashing....

    Ok seriously I'm getting sick of it. Every day my nexus 4 crashes for no reason. It started happening after the KitKat update. So I deleted all my apps and widgets and still happened. Last week I factory reset my phone and guess what just over 2 minutes ago my phone crashed again. Its really making me mad. My dad warned me when I was buying my nexus 4 that android has lots of problems compare to iOS.

    I am with virgin mobile if that helps.

    If anyone can maybe suggest me something it would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    The update might not have gone well. The OTA update causes lots of issues it seems. You should look into doing a full wipe and flashing the latest using this guide:
    [GUIDE] Nexus 4 - Factory Image Restore

    I actually found 4.4 to be more stable, it lacks some security updates, but you could use that temporarily until Google sort things out as well. Don't let this early experience ruin Android for you. Being on Virgin Mobile shouldn't make a difference.

    Did you notice the crashing after a particular application install? Or possibly an action you did when using the device? I agree with someguy01234, try flashing 4.4 and use that until you feel the updated versions would be more stable for you.

    As stated above, it sounds like the OTA did not install correctly. I had this same exact issue. Reflash the stock image and it should be fine.

    The camera app and Snapchat both cause my phone to restart.

    Not every time, but it does every now and again.
