A Meetup posting made by the San Francisco Android User Group reveals a couple of new features for Android 4.3 that will apparently be previewed by visiting HTC developer gurus later this month; one new feature involves Bluetooth Low Energy which is aimed at 'always on' accessories like heart monitors and sensors to monitor temperatures and other readings...

It maybe because of lack of tech knowledge. ;)

Like u r son of Tim Cook n know everything abt Tech hahaha

Sorry but Tim Cook isn't a techie. He was great with supply chains crunching numbers, ie a bean counter. Not to say he doesn't know anything about tech, but if you want to reference a techie, it'd be Wozniak, Gates, Jobs, Rubin, Duarte, etc.

Nice comeback, sounds like what I would've said when I was seven.

I zero lag in my Nexus 4. Not sure what lag you're seeing, but if it isn't in stock Android and you are using a manufacturers skin, then you can't complain. My Nexus 7 only lags when an app is installing or updating and that is certainly unacceptable, but not much Google can do to release the tax on the Tegra 3 when under load.

Oh yes the Nexus 4 has the project Butter....I forgot
Or maybe I should call it project Stutter......

U trolls r unbelievable. Do u really enjoy this? Don't u have some other business to do? So sad...

Why do you think I am a Troll?
I am just pointing out that android is a Laggy OS with no optimized apps...
And I think that's 100% True..
18. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
Then why are you crapping on here about android? Gtfo and go enjoy playing with your other OS.
I can confirm Nexus 4 is one of the fastest and smoothest devices out there.
19. NickPeters (Posts: 74; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
Your last comment expression really seemed like trolling and hoursy23 and darac were actually right, stock Android is really well optimized with ALMOST no lag at all (of course there is SOME lag) but u were also right and there is, as I said, lag on Andriod but not noticeable that much any more (it was in the earlier versions of Android). Custom skins r pain in the a*s for the OS as they both give Android some extra functionality and beauty but at the cost of the performance.

"functionality" and "beauty" mean different things to the 2 of us. ;D Stock Android just shouldn't be triffled with.
30. NickPeters (Posts: 74; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
U cant find some stuff in stock Android - that's a fact! One example is Samsung and all the functions that Galaxy S4 and Note 2 and other their products give through the TouchWiz. Same is for HTC, Sony, LG, Motorola and so on... By beauty, well... I totally agree with u. To me, Android is as good looking as it is by default but u gotta admit - those skins r meant to make it 'prettier' than it is and some find it true but some of us don't so its just a free choice.

We already have trolls like you on this site. We don't need any more so please go away. Thanks.

Even my old GS2 ran perfectly on 4.0 with plenty of optimized apps that looked incredible with the Holo theme. Where are you getting your information?
65. JunitoNH (Posts: 1838; Member since: 15 Feb 2012)
I have a Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.2 and yes it's laggy, especially during game play. The truth is just that. However, the functionality and options afforded by Android, is what keeps me in the platform. Willing to tolerate certain things in exchange for the aforementioned features.

HTC One with absolutely no lag here, except for Facebook, but Facebook lags on iOS and everything else too.

martiniosha is just another troll id from the same few persons.
iOS is a simple app launcher, if that lags than it would be apple intend to make it so to encourage their fans to upgrade and it works all the time. Apple fans never questioned their god.

How are you talking to us from 2009? Here in 2013. Android is smooth, as confirmed by tech site after tech site, which essentially say that the choice between Android and iOS comes down to personal choice. There is no perceptible difference in performance. (And that was ICS).
Of course there is a really big difference in how many people choose each...
6. RapidCat (Posts: 351; Member since: 12 Jun 2012)
so samsung right about new android lead project. he cares about oem.
but some features you can find in galaxy s4 before Android 4.3 launch.
and adam outler (xda dev) right about no android 5 this i/o.
android 5.0 with new nexus device. i think that is good, maybe time will be close with ios7 lauch.

android laggy?????? Only the JB browser is sluggish, the rest is very snappy! And my galaxy still uses ICS browser :) Current hardware is well ahead of software as far as android is concerned!
