Android Sound
Sound really has been one of the consistent let downs on Android, whole thing could do with an overhaul. From latency upwards it's wrought with problems at times. And this is coming from a self proclaimed fan boy of Android.

Re: Wired? that's funny
This is a LG problem in general, sound has always been inferior...

returned my nexus5
I returned the nexus5.

 

- Cell reception worse than Nexus 4.

- Camera was inferior. About as bad as nexus 4.

- Battery was a nightmare.

 

Rather than deal with the horrific loser support at LG , I just returned it. I may buy in a few months again.

Re: Headset manufacturers
The Nexus 7 2012 received the OTA updates as well. Both the Wi-Fi versions and my 3g version.

Re: Headset manufacturers
 

"Given that KitKat hasn't yet shown up on the Nexus 7 and 10 tablets, the wait for a patch release might take a while."

Your info is dated and inaccurate.

The Nexus 7 received the OTA kitkat 4.4 update (both the WIFI and 2nd gen 2013 4G/LTE versions at least. Dunno about Nexus 7 2012) a week ago.

Wired? that's funny
I got my nexus 5 a couple of weeks ago. no problems. A friend just asked me about this post and I find it funny. Who uses wired headsets anymore? I don't even think you can buy one specifically for mobile anymore. Give up your old nokia N95 Gear already! get a Bluetooth headset!

Re: Headset manufacturers
I got the KitKat update for my Nexus 10 tablet a few days ago. Also, I have a Nexus 5: No problem with the cheap headsets I use but they are designed for use with a PC - not for Apple products.

Re: Headset manufacturers
I think that it is awful when a device comes out and has these types of problems. But who is to blame? Manufacturers try their best to create precision devices. But still, there are problems.

When the newest 13 inch MacBook Pro came out, there were issues. A software update fixed those problems, but it still takes some of the sheen off of a new, glowing product, doesn't it?
