    Good update overall, but there are a few things I dislike, or will at least take some adjusting to. Mostly with the notification bar...

    For one, I'm not a big fan of the gray notification bar. I liked the ICS black. It also seems to be a little less....smooth when pulling it down. I'm not saying it's laggy, but it doesn't feel like it grabs and drags as fluently as it used to. I also am not liking the time stamp that's at the top instead of the actual top part of the notification bar so we can see the little icons of what's on. It feels a little more cluttered to me instead of opening it up which I think was the intention. And I wish there was a way to turn off the brightness setting. I like it in theory, but I use a third party brightness app, so I never even touch those settings, so again, it's just cluttering it.

    Also for some reason when I hit the home button to unlock it goes straight to the home screen instead of my widget locker lock screen. It used to go to the lock screen, which I use all the time. I've looked everywhere but can't find a setting for this. Any ideas?

    Overall it seems to be a standard upgrade. Battery is maybe slightly better if not identical, camera updates are nice, the new Swype is accurate as hell (just wish you could change the look), and I can't wait till GoogleNow is more personalized. Hopefully I'll be able to actually use Wallet sometime soon and I guess there's still more to come so we'll see!!!
    If your willing to root your phone you can get Google wallet now. U need it rooted. U need an unlocked bootloader. And a deodexed rom. Then you can get Google wallet by this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2024460

    Yeah I dunno, though Google wallet is cool, it's like S-Beam. It just doesn't have that great of a purpose yet. And unfortunately I don't really want to unlock my bootloader, but I am already rooted.

    Besides, we shouldn't have to unlock/root to get a feature that was promised to us. Especially since it's not the only one missing. So the lack of things we don't have but should is another disappointment about JB.

    At this point.....I'm not a big fan of the JB update. No flash, it's ruined a lot of my settings, both for stock and those that relate to third party apps, I don't like the notification bar, battery drain has increased, reception is the exact same, and for some reason my memory use is never as good. On average it used to be around .6/2gb. Now it's been closer to .1/2gb. Still runs fine, but it's cuttin' it pretty close there...
    Sorry you don't like jelly bean. The flash is nothing new. A majority of people knew that there wouldn't be flash. Adobe pulled out for all phones running jelly bean. I had the same issue with my battery. I did a factory reset and all of the issues I was having were fixed. My reception has improved significantly.

    Now Google play music does not work. My keyboard randomly doesn't go away.

    This update is wack. My phone worked perfectly before, now I'm having a ton of problems
