Wifi and Bluetooth don't work together
on 24 April 2013
OK, as unbelievable as it sounds, switching on Bluetooth on the Nexus 4 (with Android 4.2.2) kills your wifi connection. I know what you're thinking "that could not possibly be true", but it is. Its a known bug #41631 and has been reported to Google since December 2012 at least.
I thought I was going mad because this level of bug will render the device useless for some people and means that this is not a device you want to use with Bluetooth headsets or other Bluetooth devices. Note, if you have a 5GHz wifi router, then it works ok (like the Apple Airport Extreme for example), but if you have a regular 2.4ghz wifi then you gotta keep your Bluetooth off if you want connectivity.
In general (apart from the above issue) I find the connectivity (on 3g/wifi) to be much flakier than my old Samsung Galaxy 2, with a lot more dropping and reconnecting going on. Again if you do a quick web search you'll find a lot of people with connectivity issues.
Apart from that, its a nice device, and you have the comfort of knowing that you'll always have the latest version of Android, but I can't help but feel with serious bugs like the one above left unfixed for months at a time that I'm just a tester for the latest bleeding edge version of Android.
