    Yeah all of the SGS3s on JB have the same color bar. I even checked out the new 4.1.2 screenshots and it is still the same color.

    While here on my computer, it looks black it's against a white background here, but if I open your pic on my phone, where there is a black background for pics, it is very noticeably (to me) charcoal. Now you might not notice it, but I grew up with a painter, artist, not house painter and I can see the difference.

    Also, I just got off my Captivate a week ago and the GB update was just the first of the year and the first update to an Android I had ever done with AT&T or Kies. Before it was T-Mobile and OTA, so all that made it easy for me to remember lol
    I agree with this description (as well as your previous one too). At first glance whenever I turn my phone on now the bar looks to be out of focus.

    I loved my Captivate till the GB install decided to make it buggy (still have it, but running CM10 and only using it as a music player). But yeah, I can see why it is easier for you to remember. lol

    I suppose if I had black wallpaper I might notice it and it might bother me. Haven't tried that yet.

    But if it went back to the black, black, you would think your entire screen looked so much better with much richer colors and think it was a software update that made everything look better. That's just not a noticeable thing for everyone. One way you can tell the difference, I have an app that does the weather here and it puts the temp in the status bar. Before, it was just the white temp there, now there is a little black box that you can see. It's not a huge difference to most people, but then to those of us that "see it" it is a huge difference

    Let's see if you can tell here, which this was funny also when we were playing with S Voice lol

    The temp looks more like just a white icon and not a black box with the white temp in it here.

    Where did you get this wallpaper? Or wallpaper that looks like this? I've been searching for something like this and can't find it in the middle of the thousands of others.

    Oh that isn't a wallpaper, that's just a screen shot from when we were playing with S Voice.

    I generally get my ringtones and wallpapers from Zedge, I really like Zedge.

    If you pull up "sort" with the menu button, you can change it to downloads of all time, etc.

    Mine is a shade of gray as well. Notification icons aren't as bright now. No big deal to me

    I figured Sammy changed the color from dark black to this grayish black to lessen the notification bar burn that effects amoled screens long term.. My old epic had the notification bar burned in after a year and a half.

    I recommend "StatusBar+" from the Google Play Store.
