I just think that since 4.2.2 EVERY update has been complete c**p... The bluetooth has amongst other issues been rubbish...

Are you left handed?

Nope!
But what's that got to do with it?

If I go on Google maps and use the navigation, even in its rack in the car, the whole thing is shifted, off track and upside down!

The calibration is just totally screwed up!

Well, i use the phone left handed, and i noticed that the proximity sensor goes behind my left ear pretty fast. Then the distance to the sensor is quite big, so the sensor doesn't turn off the screen until the screen goes to sleep and doesn't turn on again if i get the phone off my ear. This doesn't happen that much on the right ear. The sensor always keeps close distance since its on the other side.

The sensor you're talking about is the gyroscopic sensor. I don't have much trouble with that one.

Sorry man, you're right, it's the gyroscope!

Had the problem with that on the Z aswell aus the z1 now! Since 4.2 it only works if I flip the phone upside down 👇 and tilt it a little to the ↩

dear oh dear

My phone has recently developed 2 new problems

I have a daily alarm set and now the screen remains blank when the alarm goes off - the only way I can cancel the alarm is to hit the reset button

Also I am now experiencing random reboots - I suspect it is linked to the recent Skype update as it seems to happen after I've made a Skype call - very early to come to that conclusion but I can't think of anything else I've done to trigger this issue - the only other thing updated was google Chrome which I don't use


Boy is this KK buggy - google should be ashamed

just downgraded from 4.4.2 to 4.3

The phone had really slowed down compared to 4.3
Tons of Bluetooth problems garbled audio, disconnects, Bluetooth actually turning it self off.
Strange battery drain issues

I had to use flashtool and go back to 4.2 using a rogers FTF, then upgrade to 4.3.

Since my phone was encrypted I lost everything and have to sync everything back up with google and copy everything over.

Not sure if I will be downgrading my girlfriends phone hers she has alot of custom settings I wouldn't want her to have to redo but she is always complaining about the Bluetooth also.
