What I usually do is wait for sometime, dont be in a hury to upgrade, all these complaints never happen.Plus there is always an option to revert back/downgrade.

> In reply to Android Is Best @ 2013-02-10 17:48 from HChn - click to readIts not that long ago Android had bad updates, everyone was crying for newer and newer versions, no one (almost no one, except me) was asking for a WORKING Adnroid version instead of NEWER. I was really pissed when i got upgraded from 2.2 to 2.3 and had the same bugs and errors, and then i changed from HTC to Sony Xperia and STILL had the same bugs and flaws in Android 2.3, proving that it was not HTC specific problems but general Android problem. Then when 2.3 finally was perfect (was it in 2.3.7?), then came ICS with new errors and bugs.

No matter your OS, this is the time to quote Tim Cook:
