Annoying little bugs in 4.3
OK guys. Enough for me.
I've been pretty happy with my Nexus device since 4.2. Despite very few minor bugs it had been running absolutely fine.
Then the 4.3 update came and totally, pardon my French, sc***ed everything up.
First of all, the overall experience. Scrolling got much smoother for me. Secondly, that's all.
What got 'broken' was definitely the overall smoothness of the UI. For example, when I click an option in the Settings menu, it takes much longer time for the bluish color that indicates the click to disappear. It isn't only in Settings though. What's more, the click sound is somehow 'laggy'. What I mean by that is when I click something there's a noticeably greater amount of time needed for the sound to be triggered than it was in 4.2.2.
Also, the widgets drawer looks just bizzare for me. Some strange black boxes started to appear since 4.3 update (attachment).
Today, the stock YouTube app got unbearably laggy when scrolling through the list of searched movies.
But today Android has gone full retard. Just look at one of screenshots in attachments; surprisingly enough, the YouTube widget thumbnail looks like... the volume slider!
I've tried clearing data, cache, force stopping the YouTube app, even uninstalling it and going back to stock (+turning it off completely). If I go to stock app, then the thumbnail is fine. But as soon as I update the app... the same thing happens.
Also, while writing this, I noticed that my phone discharged by around 4% despite being plugged to a charger (in AC mode).
Seriously, this isn't an experience I was expecting from a Nexus device, a phone that should be a model for any other Android smartphone.
I wish I could go back to 4.2.2.
