Nexus 4 video bug discovered
Google’s Nexus 4 has a few confirmed bugs inside it but Know Your Mobile has just come across yet another...
Android 4.2 has been labelled the buggiest update Google has released since Honeycomb, featuring a myriad of bugs and foibles. And we've just discovered one that affects at our Nexus 4’s video camera.
Out testing the Nexus 4’s imaging capabilities around London, we discovered that the handset has some rather serious issues affecting its video-recording capabilities.
The video camera aboard the Nexus 4 has continuous autofocus which is great, but problems arise when it autofocuses into macro (close up). According to our tests – see the videos below – the Nexus 4 struggles to get out of macro mode once it has locked focus.
We’re not sure whether this problem is exclusive to our Nexus 4 or something to do with Android 4.2. We researched the issue before publishing but could not find any reports detailing the problem, though if there are any out there - send them through.
Apart from that though we think the Nexus 4 is an absolutely belting device, having everything you’d want from a smartphone and a whole load more. It’s also dirt-cheap direct from Google costing just £239 for the 8GB variant.
Google is currently fresh out of stock, selling out of the Nexus 4 in around 30 minutes flat. Latest reports suggest that Google’s stock will be replenished in three weeks time, so if you’re looking to get a Nexus 4 offline you could be waiting a while.
Check out our first look at the Nexus 4 ahead of our full review, which will be going live soon.
