    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...

    Notice different network modes. Is there a difference? Which one to use? Global mode or lte /cdma?

    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...

    My phone seems significantly faster, and the low-light camera option is a godsend. Also loving the new keyboard.. and google now is pretty legit :) internet is also faster, and touchwiz doesnt freeze on me anymore. Also, loving the brightness being right in the dropdown bar (unless it was there before....dont think it was though).

    Background flash seems to work but when I try and watch a flash video I get 2 options "BublnUp or Internet". Don't know why it doesn't recognize the flash...

    Unit faster and smoother. Like the new keyboard and its notification on word selection is faster and more accurate. So far so good with my upgrade experience.
