    Can we save apps to SD card now? I haven't downloaded JB yet. I really hope I can.

    Long pressing the menu button (capacitive button next to home button) launches Google Now...FYI.

    Yeah it does, but now many of us got the double home click to launch the Google Now where it is ready for you to speak just like the S Voice did.

    I am going there once in some obscure place in AC.....when have the nexus devices impressed beyond what is available since the ONE? WTF? Verizon nexus failed so hard it wasn't even funny. And now, no LTE? Why not just come out and say you don't GAF. Sorry, but nexus hardware is eternal fail compared to Google OS. Get some REAL hardware and hack. FIN.

    And if you make the icon for the "double click" the "Voice Search" and not "google" it brings up the voice and you are ready to talk, you don't have to wake it up by saying "google" first.

    Has anyone noticed you can do 5 shortcuts on the lock screen? Is this new to JB?

    How do you turn off mobile data quickly, now that it has been removed from the notifications screen.

    I need to be able to toggle LTE off/on to save battery

    Haven't found one. Settings>>More Settings>>Mobile Networks. there may be a way to create a shortcut. You can't turn off LTE on an ATT S3 via the UI

    Had some issues immediately post upgrade. Did a system reformat and wiped everything. Reinstalled my apps and things seem to be much better, and (knock on wood) maybe a little better battery (of course right after i ordered a Hyperion 4200).
    Home button seems to be a bit 'laggy'

    That has been in since Honeycomb. Swipe to delete in the new Gmail is a welcome new feature though. I really missed that since my Palm Pre days.

    I noticed that the LED flashing is not as intense (bright) as it was before.

    I hadn't noticed you could do that with ICS, but then I had ICS exactly 7 days and then this update came out and hadn't even begun to see what all ICS would do lol

    The new feature that JB brought to the notifications is that you can see part of the message for gmail and gtalk (and if you don't want to, can two finger swipe up and it minimizes it back to just a notification).

    Long press the menu button and Google Now will come up. I was using my GN2 as my daily driver since I received it November 9. I updated my S3 without issue with Kies. Used it today and it was fine. Did not notice any issues other than delete key being gone in photos and battery life down to 16% right at 5 pm, which seems a bit low compared to what I recall on the battery life.

    I did not have and random reboots or anything out of the ordinary. LTE was as fast as before. Google Now was working as it did on my GN2. Also the blue tooth was working fine in my car and better than my GN2! Overall seems like a good update!

    Well these are all interesting feedback comments.. I come away thinking 'the jury is out' when deciding to update or not. Frankly, my phone works fine, great battery life, no crashes to speak of and I love Swiftkey 3 so updates to the stock keyboard aren't relevant. Will be curious if the update improved low light camera performance though because in my opinion, it sucks. This is coming from a second gen iPhone too.. No argument that the GS3 is head and shoulders nicer than the iPhone though.. The search bar and voice recognition rock!

    Loving it so far. Nova is a little laggy for me every now and then, but I am considering checking out touchwiz again now that the folder icons don't look like something from the 80's. The best thing I noticed though is that JB has fixed the clipboard bug that has plagued me for the last month. Not being able to copy/paste had been horrible.

    Other than that Google Now is probably my favorite thing. The cards are creepily accurate. After the latest GNow update I opened it up and was giving a driving time to not only my home but to a local bar I frequent at the end of the week. 20 minutes later got a text from a friend asking if I wanted to meet for a drink there. Creepy coincidence.

    Also like the slide to zoom function when moving finger up and down the left or right edge of the screen that appears to work in Chrome/Stock Browser/GMAIL(once zoom enabled) and most other apps that zoom. Not sure if that's JB or Samsung, but I don't remember it in ICS.

    So far I like it a lot. Before I was using over 1gig of ram and now it's down about half and my battery life is up.

    So I hear that JB has notifications but I already have GO Notifications. Could I un install Go and be Ok?

    Maybe I missing something here. Are you, You or YOU saying that AT&T now officially have Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy S3?

    I've tried to perform an update from the device, but it stated that one wasn't available.
