    Overall I like the update, and am still finding little things here and there. I really only have two complaints:

    1. I want my send/receive icons/arrows back!! I am a status junkie, and want to know when data is (or is not) moving in either direction!!
    2. Events with multiple handlers now takes an extra tap. For example, assume you have Chrome installed. When you tap a URL, a box comes up allowing you to select which browser you want to use. For some items (like the browser), I like the freedom of choosing each time. With ICS, you just had to tap the browser you wanted and it went. There was a checkbox that you could select to make it the default before you selected your browser. NOW, you have to select your browser, then either hit "Every Time" or "Just Once". That's annoying. Give us the checkbox back. Why the extra tap?!


    While I've disabled all the fancy Google Now stuff (would probably rarely use any of it), I'm STOKED that "universal search" is now back!! That's one of the things I loved about webOS' "just type". I could start typing and get apps/contacts pop up as well. So glad that's back!
    I'm like you. I dislike the way it handles it when you have multiple app choices. And have also disabled Google now. Like voice it's just a novelty that gets in my way.

    You're crazy. I think it's really cool. Still trying to figure out how to get the full effects of it though.

    Start the app/search. Hit the menu button and tap Settings. Tap "Google Now". Toggle the switch.

    Discovered one more thing this afternoon I forgot about, that I'm not too fond of.

    In ICS, I could hit the power button OR the home button to wake up the screen. While they both wake up the screen, the home button returns me to the home screen immediately. When I have the phone lying on my desk and the screen blanks, it's MUCH easier to hit the home button to bring the screen back on. Now, I have to hit the power button or the app in the foreground goes bye-bye.

    I'm crazy? Really???

    How many times does it need to show me how long it will take to get home. How many times does it have to show me The Cowboys lost.

    It puts so much useless garbage it makes it difficult to find what I'm really looking for. Like I said, I feel it is too much in your face. It needs to be more subdued. It just gets in my way.

    If you feel otherwise that's fine. We all like different things. Because I feel it's a nuisance, doesn't mean I'm nuts. :what:

    The default position should be closed and let us open if we choose. Not open and let us close it.

    I agree with you! Plus, I will just never like anything that tracks what I do and how I do things! I mean really...has it come to this that we can't even search for things on our own without having some system do it for us?!?! Are we that handicapped?!?!?!?!?

    I'm still disappointed that I can't mute the camera sound when taking a picture. The first time I thought it would be muted and I took a nice loud picture in a quiet part of a wedding was fun. I find many places I would like to use the camera quietly: weddings, church, kids recital... and I can't. Really annoying.

    Complain to you congressman. They are the cause. It is illegal in many states and counties. To avoid lawsuits, Samsung decided to make it difficult for you to do this.

    With regards to Google Now, I agree about all the cards and stuff in your face. So I have that feature turned off. Different strokes for different folks. However FOR ME, it is useful (and fun) to have it when I do need it. With speech activated, a simple "Remind me to call Gina at 3:00" sets an alarm for me. In the car, say "Broward Community College" and I get a nice map with options for written directions or (I love this) a simple button press to make a call to them without having to key in the phone number. This app can be used in many different ways. It's nice to use for sports info, weather info and airline status. All these features are available with different apps but it's nice to have everything rolled into 1 app. The calendar feature to set appointments is unfortunately not available yet but it will be a great feature that I am sure will be implemented soon. Right now it is rudimentary, but I think in 5 years we will look back and see that this was our future.

    These cards are no longer in your face, they are quietly in your notification bar when u pull it down now. They don't show up on the top like they use to.

    I don't understand this... My GF has the GS3 on Verizon and when she mutes her phone, it also mutes the camera.

    Don't get why Verizon would be different than Spring if its a legal issue.

    Every phone I've had for awhile now has had some default noise with the camera and I wasn't aware of it disappearing when the phone was silent. I understand why its done (the legal issues mentioned above). I'm sure we have all come across instances where we wish it didn't go off, it probably makes sense.

    No cards in my notification bar which is how I like it. I just use the setting to turn this feature off.

    Sooooo.... anyone care to share how to mute the camera sound...? I suspect rooting is involved? Or can it be done without rooting?

    From what I've read, it's a Sprint thing concerning privacy. I've read that either getting another camera app or rooting would do the trick.
    I've tried the former n it doesn't work. I'm sure the latter would tho.

    Search is your friend...
    The ONLY way to do this on the Sprint gs3 is by rooting. Here are the directions to silence your shutter sounds. There are also several custom roms where the hack is already implemented.
