here's a list of changes i've noticed after upgrading today (non-branded Int'l S3)
- in the camera, there's a magic wand with a total of 11 FX (many are similar to the ones existing in the stock photo editing software)

- when recording a video, you can now apply above FX as you record!

- once you start recording, the icon for the video recording shows a 'stop' overlay, which helps as it was confusing earlier (it was a static red round button irrespective recording or not)

- i've noticed that the camera applications exits automatically if left idle (~1 minute idle time)

- camera shortcut from lock screen seems to open faster

- camera voice action icon changes, now shows as a mic

- click and hold the power button to show 3 different sound modes (mute, vibrate and normal), you can switch between those by clicking the volume button or simply click on one which will then close this screen

- a new AllShare Cast widget

- as some of users reported, my video thumbnails no longer animate, they are all static (weirdly though, except for the video sample that came with phone!)

**just noticed a 'bubbles' live wallpaper, not sure if this is new, i never noticed it before
+ these:

1. The icon for no notifications has changed.
2. Samsung ChatON service is installed.
3. There's an allshare cast options menu under settings > wireless & networks > more > allshare cast.
