the Google Code Forum thread devoted to buggy wifi behavior with the Nexus 4 phone:
Don't want to seem unduly critical, Google Devs, but seriously: what is the deal with the Nexus 4? It really did take about 2 months to get your attention regarding the crippling wifi disconnect problems with the phone. And all the while the Google Device Support folks were still calling it a hardware problem and RMA'ing phones any time a person would call to complain about it.
Then, the Device Support folks called the deep sleep wifi disconnect behavior a "feature".
Then one of the devs said that the behavior was due to a buggy Qualcomm wifi driver.
Yet the devs are still asking everybody who is experiencing wifi problems with the N4 and the N7 to provide their router model and firmware rev. info.
Is it really asking too much to get a straight answer? Two straight answers, actually:
1) WTF is the problem with the Nexus 4, and
2) How long is it going to take before you fix it?
If there are separate wifi problems that affect the N4 and the N7, perhaps you could share that with us as well.
Seriously. That's all we want to know.
Thanks in advance.
