    Default How much better do you think JB is over ICS?

    I"m in love with my ICS AXIOM CMPLX V1. Do you feel like JB (I'm looking at Euroshank CM10) is noticably better than whatever ICS ROM you were running, or is it just fun to have something different?

    Biggest 2 differences with JellyBean are Project Butter smoothness and Google Now.

    The smoothness is an unrivaled difference from any other version of android, it just flows and it flows well.

    Google Now is very cool. Where SIRI for iOS is more of a novelty than a tool (although it is a useful tool in many cases) Google Now is strictly a tool, and a very neat and good one at that, as long as you dont mind that google is going to stalk your web searches in order to make it as useful as it can be. I especially like that it will read your calendar info and if you have a location set for an upcoming appointment it will give you a card telling you how long it will take to get there, how much traffic (if any) to expect, and an option to use turn by turn navigation.

    I would say if you dont really care about google now then stay with what you have for now. But if google now is something youre interested in, it would be worth upgrading to STOCK jb just to try it out.

    i miss jellybean already i was forced back to stock with my new job as it requires encryption. i had to either return to stock and enable encryption or be forced to carry around an extra blackberry with me. Jellybean is so worth it i never really appreciated it until i was back on ICS. hurry up verizon with that JB update i cant stand the Lag

    What ever will they do when BB folds under the pressure of Android and apple? :O

    My company was very BB heavy, but as of 6 months ago we went from 97% BB to about 25% with all but 3 of those replaced being iPhones, the other 3 being 2 Samsung Mid range phones and my Gnex.

    Anyways, back on topic here.


    You can always flash the pure AOSP Rom and remove SuperUser, that would disable root access on your phone and you should be good with your company, all while being on JB. Of course if their IT dept had to set it up for you i guess it would be best to just leave it be :P

    A lot better, more streamlined and apps seem to talk to each other on jelly bean to keep you on tap of what's ahead. Google Now. Updated Notification System. FAster and smoother UI. These are my top choices as to why you should jump to Jelly BEan if you HAv'nt.

    The automatic screen widget re-size is awesome in the jelly bean.

    I don't see anything special with JB.

    I didn't have any type of lag in ICS, so I don't notice the smoother feel of butter.

    The expanded notifications only work if the apps that notify support it.

    Google now might be decent for those who enable web history on Google, but I don't want to do that.so I can't take full advantage of Google Now.

    I'm not as easily impressed as so many others.

    Wow, that last line comes off as a bit condescending!

    Anyway, I think JB is a step in the right direction and noticeably nicer than ICS.

    I never had a problem with the keyboard in ICS, but I did have a few crashes and hangups that I have not seen with JB.

    There are some apps that do support expanded notifications and I'm sure there will be more to follow.

    Google now works well for people who choose to use it.

    Believe me u might not c lag on ics but some of us have I'll admit ics was smooth but has NOTHING on the feel and look of jb and as for the notifications ALL of the notifications are modified like the phone if u are on a call u can hang up right from the notification bar or if u miss a call u can call back or text the person right from the bar very cool and that's only one

    And if u just choose to not have Google track your web history but travel Google now is still useful if u are by any transit stop or using GPS Google now will bring up cards for that and now u can pick your own team
