Samsung Nexus S Gets Buggy Jelly Bean Update
Google Nexus S users have already got the goodness of Jelly Bean over the past couple of weeks, thanks to various custom ROMs. But now it’s all official. Apparently, a few networks have made the OTA update for Jelly Bean available for Google Nexus S.
The list of few networks which are already rolling out the Jelly Bean update for Google Nexus S includes Three, Rogers, Vodafone, T-Mobile, Wind and finally Mobilicity and just to add an extra smile on your face, Engadget has now confirmed that the T-Mobile US users will also get to taste Jelly Bean on their Google Nexus S.
The 114 MB update looks good at the first glance and in fact you might actually like it after seeing how smooth home screen transitions are, that the project butter has done wonders to your Google Nexus S but this is where all the good things end for the Nexus S Android 4.1 update.
Poor Battery Life
Jelly Bean has always been accused of poor power battery management and in fact some users call it as ‘battery killer’ and it looks like Jelly Bean for Google Nexus S is no exception. When the ICS update first rolled out for Google Nexus S, users did notice a slightly higher battery consumption than usual but Jelly Bean just made the matter worst.
Well frankly speaking, this one was a bit of shocker, after the update many Nexus S users have reported that somehow loading emails takes longer now. It is not clear whether this is because of some modifications done to the Gmail app for the Jelly Bean on Nexus S or it is something else, but we are pretty sure that this could be fixed by a simple OTA update.
New SMS messages
This issue so far is the most irritable one, after updating the Nexus to Jelly Bean, if the user tries to compose a new text message instead of opening an existing one, the sms app freezes for anywhere between 10 seconds to a minute and some users even reported that the SMS app is much more unstable now.
Feel free to share any issues with your Nexus S which you are experiencing since you have got the Jelly Bean update.
