Well, a few surprises with this release, where there's a tweak to the quick settings that popped up in Android 4.2, which used to act by tapping Wi-Fi or Bluetooth taking you directly to the relative setting screen. Now? You can switch them on and off with a long press, a slight change, but something nice to see.

 

When downloading apps with Android 4.2.2, there's a new progress indicator that tells you the remaining time on your download. Also included, is users reporting much faster image loading within the Gallery application. If you were using the workaround to give your Nexus 4 LTE, that's gone, folks.
