In the previous major Android 4.2 release, Google apparently, forgot to add the month of December in the People app in Android. Anything stored for the month of December for your contacts will not be able to be seen on the phone, atleast, because of this bug. There were several issues with the entire previous update, but we will get to that later. And it also looks like Google has fixed the Bluetooth bug and the slow Camera app rotation.
