While Jelly Bean (4.1) was very well received and perceived as one of the best update to Android, 4.2 is not getting the same treatment. Report tell that "some aren't that bad, but some can just ruin your day."

When you skip a whole month in your calendar you know things aren't going good.

I have Nexus 7 running 4.2 (note original Nexus 7 that shipped with 4.1 upgraded to 4.1 update, then 4.2)

Not experiencing battery / extreme drain.
Not had random reboots or instability.
No flickering w/ auto brightness and typically used in darker rooms.

Not used bluetooth, so can't evaluate that one.
Not used camera much or widgets on the lock screen, can't evaluate that.

Confirmed Dec is missing on personal contact information event dates (bday, anniversary, etc).

I updated my galaxy nexus to android 4.2, complete fresh load.

I removed it yesterday and went back to 4.1 I experienced the random reboots, the instability, battery drain and slow charging and odd behaviour on the lockscreen. I also noticed my phone got extremely hot after a full charge :(

When 4.1 was first released I upgraded straight away and never looked back, 4.2 however just isn't quite right yet :(

Running 4.2 on my nexus 7 fine here, only had 8gb space instead of 16gb after flashing stock images but that was easily fixed ^^

My battery life has gotten worse over the past couple of days but I think that's because I'm using the Cloud Player when I'm out and about.

My battery died quite quickly without using the cloud player, but using the cloud player.....well, that just destroyed the battery :p

I'm a little nervous now about when Sprint will *eventually* get 4.2 pushed out for my galaxy nexus.
