    Default Re: Now that we officially have Jelly Bean what are your thoughts?

    My phone seems MUCH snappier, no lag. Lately I have been having some intermittent lag issues with Nova Launcher, and Swype but all is well in 4.1.1 I'll need to dig around, and see what else I notice after a full days use, but so far I'm loving this update.

    Odd my RAM went from 1.08 DOWN to 668.

    In Google Now it says you can wake it by saying "Google". Can this be done from the home screen while Now is closed? Really wishing I could wake it from the home screen like Siri on the iPhone.

    Unfortunately I think the only way to activate Google Now is to long press the home button, and press the google button in the middle. That or activate voice search in the search bar.

    I had the same issue with nova, but I rebooted again and it seems to be working fine now.

    I set Google as one of my lockscreen apps, and it comes up that way too.

    Love it! Phone is smooth as butter! Radio picks up stronger signal...I see too that AT&T changed APN settings for LTE from "pta" to "phone" when I was originally told that the APN "phone" is for HSPA only but oh well. My battery is lasting longer too

    FYI, you can approximate this behavior. There's a Google app that does nothing more than bring you into Google Now. Add that to your lock screen and you'll now have access directly from the lock screen.

    You can use this app to assign a double click of the home button to launch Google Now.

    Looks like I spoke to soon. When I close an app my home screen sometimes goes blank until I swipe from the left or right and then appears again. Irritating.

    - can one dictate a text message to Google Now and send it? If driving mode is enabled, will the answer text be read aloud?

    Thanks ahead to all that answer!
    - Yes Driving Mode should work the same
    - Google Now CAN open applicatons
    - Yes you can dictate text and send using google now, idk about it reading aloud though..also seems like it wont send automatticaly, it will display what you said, and then it will ask if you want to send, which you hav to click send message


    With that being said, I LOVE this update! Phone is much snappier and smoother
    Also battery life seems about the same, but not more lags and freezes
    My only complaint is the grey notification bar, wish it was black...either way I removed it with Nova Launcher

    Wish i could say the same. My phone is constantly freezing/rebooting since the update. I've narrowed it down to either: Nova, Juice Defender, or believe it or not, having LTE turned on. May have to factory reset and start over. UGH

    Has CM10 fixed the BT audio issues? Have they fixed the camera FC issues? Have they fixed the home button double click to wake issues? Have they fixed all the other issues that Stock TW doesn't have, taking advantage of all the phone offers? What? No? Didn't think so, no CM10 is not better, it's just different.

    One feature from CM10 that I wish Samsung didn't mess with is the Blocking Mode. I'm fairly certain that it's just a skin over the 'Quiet Hours' feature in stock JB, I don't think it's CM10 specific. I prefer 'Quiet Hours' over Blocking Mode because it was able to completely silence the phone down to no haptic for the timeframe you specify. Slight difference but I feel that 'Quiet Hours' implements the feature better.

    I'm having a issue with the calendar since the update it keeps saying no calendar and when I go in and select my calendars (I like that this was changed) it will add them for a bit then they disappear again

    Also I like that you can now make folders in the app drawer. But I have had Touchwiz Home crash on me a couple times.

    I love it I've had no issues so far. It is fast and my battery actually seems to be better. That could be because I stopped using Nova launcher and when back to TW.

I think the animation when you tap to open a folder takes too long though; it's inconsistent with how fast everything else is and makes it seem like it's lagging. It's also disappointing when a particular app is still a little sluggish when the rest of the OS isn't hardly at all, but oh well.

    - Apparently driving mode will transcribe your incoming texts and emails, etc. and let you dictate responses somehow. I haven't put it to use yet.

    - Good Now is nice, but it should be accessible from the lock screen by default. I love the way stock android does it, with quick access the Google Now and the camera. I've turned it on though and will see how it helps me in my daily life over the next few weeks. Google Now can be accessed with a long press of the home button and then a tap of the middle icon. On the home screen it can be accessed with a long press of the menu button. A long press of the menu button will always access search in whatever application you're in. Google Now can also be accessed from the Voice Search icon. Google Now replaces Google Search, so anyway you could access Search will now bring you to Google Now.

    **I'm not sure how much battery Google Now will draw yet, but if you're battery conscious you can go into Google Now -> Hit the menu button -> tap settings -> tap Goggle Now, and you'll get a list of all of Google Now's functions. You can disable them and their notifications individually. For instance the weather notification is on by default. I bet that draws a bit of power, so I disabled it.**

    - There are little changes all over the place. Some are Samsung TouchWiz changes, some are Android Jelly Bean changes. The notification bar, along with its changed appearance allows you to expand notifications with a two-finger drag down. There's more to play with in the settings like a Do Not Disturb mode. The menu button has more options in most places.

    - Battery life seems to be the same so far.

    Yeah I thought of that earlier. But I'm not ready to give up one of my lock screen apps for Google Now yet.

    They got you covered! I think under ICS, the limit was 4 lock screen apps. Now you can do 5!

    You sure can add 5..I didn't notice that when I was changing those earlier. In my defense, I've only been on ICS exactly one week so I wasn't completely familiar with the lock screen customization yet. I like the 5 better than 4, it looks more "balanced" to me now. Yeah strange, I know but it's the small stuff like that that will bug me lol

    its pretty good, but after using cm10 it's not as good. I dont like how it looks the same as before. I had to use nova launcher to get the JB theme. So to me it's like Skyfall, not as good as casino royale but defintely better than quantum of solace.

    One thing I'm really liking.I can swipe notifications off the pull down shade. There are some that I might not need to open, but I want them off the notification bar and you can just swipe them off to the side and they go away from the notification bar also.
