    I can notice Project Butter right off the bat, the phone feels snappier and a little bit more responsive (not a night and day change but I can notice it)

    Google Now is great, I set up some cards and the layout is nice looking, did some voice search and it was pretty good too.

    And I tinkered with the new notification center but I wasn't able to delete things (like when you get an email) right from the tab, maybe it's user error but im going to try again in a second, overall I like the new layout too.

    Im stoked, I love this update.

    I've had jelly bean for 3 hours and my phone is hot. I restarted and pulled the battery several times but it remains hot. I don't see any apps misbehaving. Please tell me I'm not the only one with this problem!

    Edit: running mainly on 3g.

    Does sound a bit abnormal....

    Having signal issues? Cutting in and out? If its working the heck out of the radio to maintain a signal it can be causing the device to heat up a bit....

    I love the update I have been running it a few hours and have not ran into any issues. It was totally worth the wait.

    Love it. No problems so far. Been playing with it about 3 or 4 hours now. Faster and more responsive. Really like the new notification tab too. Also my Wi-Fi seems to pick up a lil better. Getting signals inside I used to only pick up outside.

    The only problem I ran into is FoxFi doesn't work anymore (not on wifi anyway - it recommends that I use bluetooth DUN instead). It used to work on ICS till now.

    Any workarounds? (I'm using the latest FoxFi)

    Noticed Project Butter right away. You can actually feel how fast the phone runs now.

    One BIG problem though is my data speeds have dropped off incredibly. It's almost treacherous to try and open up a website. Signal strength has decreased as well. Wonder whats up with that?

    I'm seeing the same issues with FoxFi. Any ideas or other solutions sharing over WiFi?

    Just looked back at this post, this seems to be my problem as well. It's running pretty hot and I'm constantly losing signal. Really don't know what's wrong because it wasn't like this at all on ICS.

    Voice search doesn't call locations. For example and please feel free to try this for me:
    This is my command to voice search: call its Greek to me in cliffside park new jersey.

    But it doesn't call the location but instead searches my contact for someone who sound similar.

    And wifi seems to be weaker

    Never mind I uninstalled the last Google search update and reinstalled all is well and I'm living my phone.. I really now see the benefit of a nexus device . And imagine having a nexus s 4g and getting jelly bean. Gingerbread to ICS to jellybean wow. I can tell you this much I will never buy another non nexus device ever again.

    I've been playing with it for a few hours and am loving it. Project butter definitely improves the responsiveness in a noticeable way and Google Now has so much potential. I am definitely sticking with Nexus devices from now on!!!

    I have noticed battery increase as well. I think jellybean is a definite improvement over ICS. Google mkw is very mice!

    battery life might take a hit if Google Now is enabled. there's a lot of constant background data collecting going on with that app (search history,
    location history, etc.). i think it's a neat concept but for my purposes it's more of a unnecessary novelty at this point and even kind of annoying so i turned it off. i also didn't want it affecting my battery life. i turned off location reporting as well.
