    Default Re: New update for the Sprint GN2 - 2/13/2013

    Got my update yesterday, things I've noticed; Positives: firefox is now on the multi window menu, default browser is quicker when loading pages, when u hover the S pen over a folder on your home page it shows a preview of all the apps within that folder, Google wallet works!, options to customize notification bar, options to use volume keys to zoom in and out on camera, notification menu bar is now black instead of gray and the gallery seems to load much faster even the sd card photos and synced photos from Facebook and Pocasa load almost instantly, galary interface is better with better preview window and viewing options. Negative: smart stay eye on notification bar stays on constantly, whenever you wake up your phone by pressing the home button the recently used apps menu pops up automatically! Very very annoying, pop up tips that seem to show up randomly telling you stuff you already know, also the default browser is automatically picked as your browser instead of chrome or Firefox.

    Update : I've also noticed that when u copy something to the clipboard and paste it in s-note, it now pastes on page 1 of the document u have open which is great! Before it would paste to a new page and you'd have to cut and re paste on the 1st page then go back and delete the new pages created by the original paste.

    I just noticed that the smart stay eye lights up bright every 1 minute or so, so it may not have the camera on the entire time. It appears that maybe the icon stays on but the camera only comes on periodically when the icon lights up to check if your looking at the phone or not.

    No problem here after update. Used the recommend battery saving tips and battery seems to be better.

    Sorry but you shouldn't have to hard reset a phone after an update for it to work correctly. I understand if your constantly installing new roms but for a stock update I don't think so.

    Angry This Update is best avoided

    We have 3 GSN 2 phones, all stock with no root and they ALL have had the same problems after this last "update":

    1. When launching the photo gallery from an application to select a picture, you literally have to wait for several minutes for the albums to show up.
    2. Reception has become VERY poor in places it was previously fine (like our home) Constantly getting the "no data" warning and calls go right to VM no ring.
    3. The voice to text feature which never worked well at all is almost totally useless now. I get "sorry can't contact google at the moment" even on WIFI now.
    4. Weird lags returning to the home screen with the back button and other odd behavior of the hard buttons.

    We all have somewhat different uses for our phones but none of us have many apps and no mods. Its really obvious to me because literally they went from the best phones we've had the day before the update, to phones we're ready to ditch after the update. One sprint tech admitted there were some issues they were aware of specifically the reception and voice to text problems. Of course no timeline was specified for a fix...

    Can't we uninstall the updates and go back?

    Just to be clear... you haven't experienced ANY of the quirks reported on this thread? If so, that's encouraging...

    Can someone test something for me. I just updated to 4.1.2. When I am in Google now. If I hit the menu button it will just flash up and disappear really quickly. Can someone confirm this isn't working right. So the help / Send Feedback / Settings / can't be reached. Ugh!
    It's a pain. If I uninstall the current update to search it works. WTF?!?!

    It's so frustrating how an update that is supposed to improve things, actually makes things worse! This phone was the best phone I've ever owned... and I've owned plenty. I actually had a difficult time thinking of any flaws (okay, I'd rather the power button on top instead of on the side)... now, since the update, there are MANY! Why would they do this? Better yet, when will it all be corrected, if ever?

    One that annoys me is when you are readinf and the screen goes black you hit the home button to wake it back up, well it sometimes opens the task manager. It does it sometimes not all the time.

    I gave it a shot, and learned the hard way... a factory reset does NOT fix the problems that the update caused. This phone went from being by far the best phone I owned to being just another quirky phone. Really stinks Hopefully a fix is in the works....

    Exclamation Re: New update for the Sprint GN2 - 2/13/2013

    I've spend a half a day trying different things thinking i have a corrupted 4.1.2 update. I'm so glad i saw that this EXACT SAME issue is acknowledged and confirmed by someone else. I had no idea even what to search for. I'm guessing this affects everyone; but probably minor of an issue (happens sometimes) where not everyone is going to post about it in the same forum thread.
