    The reviews I watched all say that Google now on official jellybean doesn't open apps "yet", implying that Google is working on adding that ability. I hope it comes in the form of a simple app update rather than in a future OS that we have to wait for.

    Cool. I've we get that update and they update the voice recognition a little bit more it will surely kill siri. I have no accent and I believe I articulate but sometimes it doesn't recognize what I said correctly. Then again it's only in beta stage. I like it though.

    Better battery life would be nice.

    Probably wouldn't use Google Now. Project Butter sounds nice, but only if it has a neutral or positive effect on battery life.

    my gut instinct is that itl use more battery. i wish that without rooting and custom rom, touchwiz would let us control the cpu speed (within reason) like we do with screen brightness so that we can customise the power saving mode to underclock by however we want depending on circumstances. they may say im a dreamer lol

    I think it wont use much more if it does since most updates help with smoothness and battery life

    The Gingerbread update improved battery life on the ThunderBolt so I'm going to be optimistic.

    Looking forward to seeing how long this updates sits with the carriers before they decide we deserve it. As far as the update goes, butter, now and notifications. Same as everyone else.

    This phone is already smooth and fast. So I'm not sure what to look for in project butter. I'm rooted and have Google now. So I guess that leaves me with the better notifications?

    One bad thing about Google now. It doesn't open apps. At least it doesn't in this rom. But I've seen no videos of it opening apps so I'm going to assume it doesn't do it. Other than that it's great
    I just ordered my GS3 and it still hasent arrived so Im sorry for my ignorance regardings this, but what is "Nova Launcher" and "Google Now"? Does it really make a difference in performance? I believe we can always uninstall stuff from the stock OS to make it a bit lighter, not having to root the phone and void our warranty. But please correct me if Im wrong.

    Cheers

    Nova Launcher is a downloadable home screen launcher you can replace touchwiz with. Some people prefer its aesthetic and it's apparently a lot faster. We're talking about it because we're wondering if Google's new project butter feature will make the stock OS as fast as nova launcher.

    Google Now is a feature on the upcoming Jelly Bean OS that aims to push relevant information to you before you ask for it. The phone would use data about your patterns and schedule to guess what info you need. It'll tell you the weather in the morning, when you have to leave for work based on local traffic, the score for your favourite sports team if they're playing that day etc.

    Thanks for the answer
    Did you also rooted your phone, installed this launcher and reccomend it? I believe that if Samsung launches Jelly Bean for the S3 sometime soon rooting the phone might be unnecessary for those seeking even better performance, for a phone that is already pretty fast. Whats your thoughs about this?
