    I like it so far nice to have some more apps for the multi window. Other than that I really havent noticed much difference.

    The option to customize the notification panel was added which in my case wasn't there before.

    The update eliminated posting duplicate entries in the calendar.

    Got mine yesterday. Can't really tell any difference aside from the notification bar configuration option now. The stock browser seems to be a little snappier. Actually the whole phone seems to be a little snappier now but that could just b my imagination.

    Had some time with it now and I'm noticing that my signal at work isn't as good as it was b4 the update it will go from 4g to 3g to no signal within a couple of minutes. I also have rebooted more than I used to plus my battery life isn't as good (probably cause of the strain of trying to find a signal) so far phone has gone backwards with the update in my opinion (starting to remind me of my nexus)

    I'm really enjoying the new apps on the split screen. Now, I can read my free Kindle blog and have Kindle up to "buy" them at the same time!

    Didn't get it yet. *puzzled* When I first saw posts here about the update I had decided against allowing it because I was nervous about foxfi not working. I find out that there will be no foxfi issues so when I go to settings to manually update and I keep getting a message saying 'system unavailable'. Did anyone *not* get the update???

    I had those same problems before the update when I was using FoxFi app. Since the update I've not lost signal once.
