    Do you have smart stay? Or is it just happening to me? Also do you have face unlock and task manager widget?

    I don't know what smart stay is. I don't actively use this phone anymore. It's my backup. I would have to check on the other features.

    Still can't get it to update. It acts like it is updating but then sits for hours on the download screen. When that screen comes on I usually see a bar going across. I Hate Kies!!!! Sometimes it works other it doesn't. Any ideas on how to get it installed?

    Anybody notice stuff that is missing or not working after the update? So far, my phone has been running smoothly overall. I did notice however, that the stock weather widget does not appear when I use NovaLauncher. When I switch back to TouchWiz, it appears in the widgets list and is selectable again. Switch back to NovaLauncher and the weather widget is not in the list.

    Pinch to zoom with certain apps works better than on the ICS rom. Before I couldn't zoom out enough to view a whole email's width. Now I can zoom out as much as I want for the most part.

    Gallery appears to be completely revamped.

    Face unlock is gone.

    The screen lock/unlock noise has changed.

    T-Mobile reboot jingle is a much lower volume (thank goodness).

    Also noticed that it erased my Tethering AP settings. It has a new default AP name, and I had to set a new password. The devices in my allowed devices list appears to be intact.

    I'm not digging the gray background on the notification bar. Wish I could set it back to black.

    Not sure about battery life yet as I've been playing with the phone a lot and exploring the new ROM for changes/new features.

    Thanks roberts. If you have a bad battery life after updating to jelly bean, do the factory reset and then the battery life will improve. that's what I did to my phone.

    Polaris office is gone but I still see the viewer in my applications. I want it back or the ability to create a shortcut to the viewer which I've tried to do and can't. The app on GP is not compatible nor is the viewer there either.

    I'm ok that face lock is gone, never used it. I'm still trying to get my system font right. So many to chose from.

    It vibrates harder when it turns on/off. Jingle is softer - YAY!!

    I'm getting some freeze ups on various applications, open or close.

    The camera gave me a pop up option about changing to SD card or something while in frozen state.

    I do not like the UI of the phone but the alarm UI is pretty

    I'm still mad that I had to create a shortcut to Visual Voice as at one time it was in the dial pad/phone area. It would dial VV not the 800#.

    I'll add more as I think of them

    -Social Hub, and therefore push email, has also been removed.
    Messaging: Samsung Galaxy S II Jelly Bean Support | T-Mobile

    -And "Qik" the video chat software.


    I am now in the middle of a long process trying to find a way to install SocialHub. I called Samsung support about the update removing "Social Hub" and they said my phone was defective and offered to repair it for free. Who do they have answer their phones?

    Has anybody else noticed that that the 5Ghz WiFi band now seems to be disabled? It was there for ICS but I can't find the menu options to enable or disable the 5Ghz WiFi band in this build. I'm only connecting to my router on 2.4Ghz. I always used to be able to connect on the less crowded 5Ghz band. Or am I missing something?

    Hold the home touch icon on the bottom of the phone for 2 seconds and press on the pie graph button next to the google search icon for the active applications.

    Nope. I don't have either one of those. I thought Smart Stay was a GS3 feature?

    The Task Manager has changed a bit too. I think mem usage is overall higher as well. Telling it to close inactive apps frees up way less memory than it used to.

    Probably UI takes higher RAM to make the phone overall smoother... I mean I like the project Butter.

    Active application widget?? I'm not sure. Do you mean like a scrollable app? Yes, if so. And no, I do not have Smart Stay. Well, I don't see it as yet.

    Aka task manager widget where you can close running apps.

    Oh ok, SamsungGalaxySII, thanks. Then no, No I do not. I remember when I first set the phone back up after the install, it was there. The stock app. When I wiped and then did a fresh install of all apps, it was gone. I had a shortcut to it in circle launcher.

    Oh well... I can access to it by holding down the home button and touch the pie graph to get there. I have no clue why did they removed face unlock though...
