Title says it all, just curious how everyone feels. For what it's worth before the update I think I had about every bug anyone had and now after the update my battery life leaves something to be desired but all in all I'm pretty happy.

Mine is considerably better!!! I few glitches here and there, but nothing major. It had gotten almost unusable before the update.

I've been lucky with my phone and have never had any MAJOR issues. Every software out there has bugs and whatnot. Now immediately after the update my phone was wonky as hell.... but a hard reset, and weeding out an app or two that wasn't working properly with JB and now my phone is much better than before.

Either way people complain. The phone update could make you a free four course meal daily, and someone would complain about the consistency of the mashed potatoes.

My signal was horrible after I updated my firmware. I ended up doing a Nandroid back to ICS, then downgraded my radio and PRI.
Edit: As well as proximity sensor and battery issue.

JB is great because I love Google Now, but I think my GS3 was better with ICS. I've been suffering through a phone with a physical home button because of the awesome battery life. After I got the JB update though, my battery life is far worse. It's just like any other LTE device now. I am also getting a lot of lag anytime I flip to a home screen that has the gmail widget on it. I have tried it on all screens and consistently get the same results. I know I probably just need to reset the phone, but I have had to do that several times already for other random issues. Of course I know it's not Jelly Bean...it's Samsung.

Considerably better then before jb, of course there are a few issues with any software update. I'm not having nearly as much problems then before.

My phone has had an issue with the keyboard lagging or sticking but I got use to it. Now after the update the keyboard issue seems fine but the other issues that others are having like sensor, home screens lagging, BATTERY big time, ect. are problems. Now, when the update came out, I was not having sensor issues then all of a sudden it started about two weeks from the update. I have done the resets and turning stuff off but to no avail. I know that the issues are being dealt with and things will be fixed with some kind of update. All said and done I still love this phone. I get 4g in some of the areas now and love it. Can't wait till Sprint gets it all up and running. I will say that this is the best EVO I have had out if all of them. My next phone might be a Note 2 though if HTC keeps going down.

I forgot to add that the superior camera used to take awesome photos but after the update my photos seem lower quality than before. Not sure if anyone else has noticed or not but the photos just don't look as sharp as they did before.
