    Hate the new lock screen. Ugly clock and why does it show part of the 'placeholder' for the plus thing every time the lock screen comes up?

    I much preferred the old one.

    I don't understand why the bottom row icons are smaller than before - in what way is this an improvement?

    Apps crashing doesn't bother me, they'll update soon enough.
    I'm starting to like the new lock screen. The clock widget can be replaced by other 3rd party widgets. HD Widgets came out with an update yesterday that will allow you to customize the clock widget. I created one with a different font and weather widget.

    I'm getting forced reboots now. Happened when using Google Maps to navigate, making it useless. While messing around on the desktop, using Chrome and now on Tapatalk. 4.2 is a busted POS. Never download a "major" update! Always wait for the patch afterwards that fixes any of the bugs that came with the previous update. Should've learned my lesson when I upgraded to iOS 6.

    Good luck with that. My reset worked for me for about a day. Then I got the same lag all over again. My tablet was less than 14 days old, so I just exchanged it. And I am not upgrading to 4.2 again.

    I had a problem with youtube using bluetooth. The sound on my external speakers lagged and the video stuttered every few seconds. I unpaired the bluetooth connection to Bose Soundlink and then repaired. Worked like a charm. I then briefly tested Google Play. All seems fine.
    I have to backtrack - bluetooth is broken - my testing was insufficient - have to wait for the next 4.2 update.

    Guess I'll do the same. Hope mine runs smoother afterwards.

    Wow, everyone is having a pretty bad experience. Fortunately I'm not. Everything seems smoother, multitasking is a lot better, I replaced the clock on the lock screen and now all is better.

    How do you replace the clock on the lock screen? When I tap on the + sign it only allows to add a preset of available widgets (Clock, Gmail, What's the song, and Calendar).

    Even the lag I was having while trying to type in the Google search box is gone now. Hope it continues to run smooth.

    I noticed that after installing multiple users the system bogged down
    I haven't added multiple users. I've seen people mentioning that, but that's not my circumstances.

    Go on the play store and search for android 4.2 clock. Then find fixed
    4.2 clock widget and download that one. From there u just add a widget to the lock screen as u normally would.

    The lockscreen has grown on me too. The only thing that bothers me is the blue outline on the side where the widgets go.

    So far, so good. I'm okay with the look and feel of the lock screen widgets, although in reality I won't use many (security/privacy risk). I like the bolder font throughout, particularly on the Nexus 7 display, which I don't think is as vibrant as other displays. I would prefer the two finger swipe on the N7 to access the quick settings. Multiple panels don't make as much sense for this size. I've mostly noticed small changes throughout that mostly work well. I hope for and expect some additional refinement of the new features in the next update.

    Yes same for me. This must be an issue. As soon as I set my wife up as a user I get random slow-downs while using the tablet now. Weird as hell. Also switching between users in the lock screen is very slugglish too.

    I added my sister as a user and haven't noticed extra lag. I also find it quite quick to switch between accounts.

    Performance wise I haven't noticed any difference, still as quick as it was

    Only a couple of my apps have issues (Kobo & Amazon), the rest all appear to be working fine

    Not a fan of the quick settings, for me it doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the system, looks like a hacked add-on, be nice if it was in the style of the notification drop down instead of big blocks (or better for me, an option to turn it off)

    Strange, it was noticeably laggy for me until I removed the extra user account. When you went to 4.2 did you just update or do a factory reset or something?

    I just updated. I've only restarted (not reset) once as well.
