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.

I have a Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) and Nexus 7 both running Jelly Bean 4.2

I will say on the Nexus 7 (stock, unrooted), I took the OTA, and I have experienced the December bug, and the poor battery life. Other than that, it's rock solid, no slowdowns, no reboots, lockscreen (widgets) work fine.

On the Galaxy Nexus, it's rooted, and running a custom ROM, but I haven't experienced anything but the December bug.

I'm sure Google will come up with a fix. It's not like we haven't heard of such issues happening after an OS upgrade (with a different mobile OS).

Running 4.2 on a Galaxy Nexus & Nexus 7 - the Nexus 7 I ran the OTA, on the GNex I did a full system image. Both are running fine and I have not experienced any bugs (other than the December bug, but that is easily remedied by updating your contacts online).

I haven't noticed any of those bugs on the Nexus 7, but then again I'm not using that People/Contacts app there, nor have I used bluetooth so far.

I'm not too fond of the lock screen widgets and the new separate notifications and settings drop downs, but other than that it seems to be running as fine as 4.1.

All those issues are not present in Nexus 4/10. Mostly present in older Nexi.

4.2 feels too different to be a x.1 release. I prefered 4.1, simplier than 4.2

Hmmm, I've seen two people complain about overheating and slow charging on Galaxy Note 2's. Not sure if they're on 4.2, but something to bear in mind.
