    I like it but been getting random restarts, which I never did before. Frustrating if had apps opened you needed only to find it restarted.

    I feel like the update has made waking and locking the phone pretty slow. Even with the lockscreen off it was still pretty slow compared to 4.1.1 =/ And this is before and after a full reset.

    The only problem I've had is that Google Maps likes to lock on the GPS, which sucks my battery. I sideloaded it with no issues.

    It is a glitch in the app package i believe.

    No problems here. Had the OTA since last Thursday. No random reboots, no overheating. Still smooth and snappy. Battery life improved. All good here. But then again, I never had any of the radio, speaker, etc issues that others have had. Lucky? ::shrugs:: Don't know, but I'm happy with it.

    Got the update last week, two issues,

    first, intermittent Wifi cutting out and has to be restarted. (So far not while I was online with the phone.)

    Second the memory management is much worse than with 4.1.1. I am not a heavy user and do not twitter or facebook or play games. prior ro 4.2.1. after a reboot I started out with over 300mb of memory free. then after a day or so it would drop to between 260MB-280 MB free.

    With 4.2.1 it still starts out with over 300 Mb free but quickly drops to 150-190 MB free. I would not be surprised to find out that those who are having the random reboots are heavy users and the cause is they are running out of available memory.

    * almost forgot, my Gnex now has the same annoying bug for auto brightness dimming and brightening sporadically that my Nexus 7 does. (Also running 4.2.1)

    In conclusion, 4.2.1 sucks. So glad I never hit that install button.

    Same here. This device has ran like a dream since day one and still continues to shine. It does suck that so many are having problems though.

    So, I guess I like the updated OS.
    Update: My bluetooth connection seems to be flaky now - occasionally, it just drops the BT connection to my car's receiver. Ugh! Guess I'll have to wait for the BT fixes in 4.2.2, whenever that gets pushed to Sprint users

    4.2.1 is working smooth as butter. No issues here.
