    Default JellyBean Tips and Tricks

    For those that have either manually downloaded JB or got the OTA. What are some tips/tricks you have noticed that differ from ICS?

    1. S-Voice is WAYYYYY better.
    2. Go into about "About Device" and click "Android 4.1.1" a bunch of times and JellyBeans pop up!
    3. The date/time in the notification bar is on the top and looks different (and better in my opinion).
    4. New camera effects.
    5. Google NOW!
    6. On the stock browser- run your finger up the side of the browser to zoom in and out. On Dolphin Browser it is the same as well, don't know if it's always been like that or not.
    7. Pause video while recording, then continue recording and it saves it as one video.
    8. Five lock screen shortcuts instead of four.
    9. New folders; plus you can also put them in the App Drawer.
    10. Blocking Mode.

    PLEASE comment and add any cool features you have found!

    I'm not happy that Samsung still hasnt unlocked the option to customize the notification toggles, and the fact that they stripped it down, what do they think people don't like to scroll the toggles or something.

    Are you on the official or a leak? I've still got all the same toggles I had on ics with the ota.

    This isnt't a tip or a trick really but I noticed before that the cell standby bug is fixed! No more is it taking up 35%+ battery... it's at 6% for me now.

    Have we always been able to run your finger up the side of the browser to zoom in and out? I have never noticed/known this before.

    I hadn't noticed it before the update either. While it is cool to have another option, it actually bothers me a little because I tend to scroll near the edges so sometimes I end up zooming instead.

    I never noticed the zoom thing but thanks for pointing it out. I think I am going to start using the stock browser more over google chrome, they seem about equal in speed and the stock browser has flash. Also, I was kind of annoyed with the Chrome card system, sometimes when just trying to scroll around a page, I would inadvertently land up on the next tab (different website).

    Adding on to the OP, after you've pressed "Android 4.1.1" and the Jellybean comes up, you can long hold the jellybean and a bunch of little ones start floating around the screen..

    The Lock Screen shortcuts now support up to five applications.

    Just a random note. Has anyone noticed any changes in the transition effects when scrolling through homescreen?

    I discovered this while using the stock email app, so it's applicable there too.

    The new folders are interesting, but somehow mine are speaking each time I open and close them. And you can put folders in the App drawer.

    I like the folders on Nova better, they look similar except they are more customizable.

    The speaking folders is an issue I've seen many times in these boards..it's caused by an app...I can't remember which one, maybe the launcher you're using.....

    Yeah I tried the stock browser coming from Chrome, but got annoyed with having to input usernames/passwords on all the old sites. Wish I could just import everything.

    It may not be the launcher because it only speaks when I use touchwiz, and doesn't do it when I use go launcher. But since others have had this issue, I will search for the answer.
