    i haven't played with my phone much since the 4.0.4 update earlier today, but these are some things that i expect to have updated:


    -landscape view for the homescreen (without apex or nova)

    -auto brightness that actually works properly

    -more customization features

    -multitouch! tired of playing asphalt 6 and not having my second finger on the screen register!!

    -less lag (not that there's a whole lot to begin with)

    -less instances of getting phone calls and having an error message come up on the screen and not knowing who called!

    -better overall stability

    -apps that i disable STAY disabled (ex. google books and movies!)

    -the number of background processes staying set to the limit that i set it to, rather than instantly defaulting to the factory setting
    !



    (my signal disappearing problems have occurred with all LTE i have on vzw's network, so i don't blame samsung for this)



    that "update list" that verizon shows on their website doesn't have any problems i've ever encountered, and is hopefully not all encompassing.




    obviously, it's a pipedream to expect all of these sensible things to occur, but hopefully most of them are now happening :D

    Multi touch should be fixed. Even when I was on 4.0.3 ROMs I haven't had the issue. I did have it on stock 4.0.2, but I haven't had since on 4.0.4 for sure.

    I'd personally like to see improvements to the browser. I like the stock browser so much that I haven't moved to anything else (I used Dolphin HD on my OG Droid), although I tried every popular one. As good as it is, though, it could use some "smoothing out of rough edges", IMHO.

    My comments are in red. Overall I am impressed with 4.04 and it is a large step in the right direction. Thankfully the devs have been doing an excellent job with adding tweaks here and there to make this device even better.

    I wish it would have fixed the ability to send pictures or MMS texts over Wifi...I still don't understand why that doesn't work on this phone

    Gosh, the battery life seems to be worse. Its been posted that any app opened but not onscreen, doesnt use more battery and just sits idle. I dont buy it. I'd like to have an app like quickpull for bb that restarts the phone while im asleep.

    i disagree with everything in red :D

    however, i do agree it's an improvement-but not enough of one. for example, disabled apps still don't stay disable, nor do background process limits stay where you set them. two inherent features that still don't work after the update. i may root at this point, but i need step by step instructions.

    Yeah you should root. A nexus with out root would be like a quarterback who can't throw. I see no reason to ever unroot my nexus unless I have to exchange it. But you are right about the disable apps feature. But it makes me think it was done on purpose for oems to port it to their devices and it's all set to go to add carrier preloaded apps.

    My battery life drastically improved. I have not added or erased any apps I'm getting about 5+ hours more with same use!
