    Meh..... Still think it was way too overhyped and overanticipated. IMO... This should have been ICS incremental update LI5 and not Jellybean. Not enough changes to bring a name change.

    I've been slammed for my stance on this before so this time I will explain myself better.

    When you turn on your computer in the morning and wake to "There is a Windows update." Do you get all excited. Yeah, I didn't think so. That's pretty much how I feel about this update.

    I think Google should have held off this update until 4.2 was ready and then released it as 4.1.

    Skunkape60 i agree with you.
    With past major updates you noticed the differences.
    With this one i feel like i have to look really hard.

    If you would rather have a os that releases New builds, that really have nothing in then other than bug fixes ios would live you as part of their team.

    I'll sit over here with the rest of team android with upgrades that push our os further, along with fixing bugs.


    I'll take any update big green will push out. I would hate having a stagnant os.

    I guess this is not fair to ICS, but I waited to start flashing new ROMs (other than the std LI3 Freeza OTA Update) until JB was available. Now I have better battery times, amazing eye candy, bloatware removed, tons of new features like the N2 gallery, Google Now, TW with a 5x5 launcher, and a Rom Updater with new themes, toggles, mods, and additional Android 4.2 apps. Now my phone is smoking with Jelly Bean Goodness!
