    i didnt have any complaints about 4.0.4 but when i finally forced the update and now that i have jb the whole interface of the phone is better, say your in a phone call but go to a text or something and slide the notification bar down it gives you the option to hand up from there and shows u who u r on the phone with time date and day. and it seems to transition from windows quicker and its just cleaner to me.

    Much snappier. Google Now is nice to have in my phone. Had it on N7 tab since launch but never used it. Very handy. Will review more tomorrow. Nighty night.

    Personally don't see any real difference. One of my Beautiful Widgets stopped working. Other than that, I'm not overly disappointed or impressed.

    I have played a little with the voice search thing. I don't see myself using that thing much. As far as the signal and battery life go, I don't notice anything different.

    One issue I've noticed is that in Google+, it is unable to determine my location when I open my Nearby circle. Google Maps can find me just fine though.

    I've gotten much better battery life today. Usually by 4pm I've plugged in or changed batteries. It's 6pm and I've got 30 percent left. Much snappier than before. Quite pleased.

    Just did the Google service framework trick and my early opinion would things seem to be much smoother when moving around.... Will try signal strength when i return too work and will test battery tomorrow. So far though pleasantly happy

    I did the service framework trick today and got it. Had to reboot a few times for it to really work right. The first time I got only voice not internet but on the reboot it works.

    It's faster, the screen seems brighter. The sound is definitely much louder than before as is the vibration.

    Google now is a cool toy. I've only started play with it but it has it's uses.

    The phone also seems to weigh less after the update - don't know how google does it.

    The battery seems better and I seem to get more bars.

    That's about it.
