    The phone is faster and smoother. New settings menu. Haven't tried the camera yet.

    Well assuming I can get it installed, the real test will be to see what the connection is like in the breakroom at my work. When a coworker got ICS on her Bionic she went from no signal ever, to almost constant 4g. I get an INCREDIBLY weak 3g that cycles in and out. Here's to hoping I get the same results as her...

    I notice the notification (pull down) is different, menu slightly different and slightly snappier. Maybe I just dont know what else to look for. Not the "complete game changer" I anticipated, lol...
