Just watched a hand on video on YouTube with jelly bean on the nexus...pretty much blows anything I've ever seen out of the water in terms of speed and fluidity, including an iPhone. Lots of pretty cool new features and little ui tweaks that that really raises the bar for the os. Imo it makes manufacturer skins completely unnecessary at this point, and I'm now seriously considering keeping the nexus instead of jumping ship to the gs3

Good thinking! I was battling myself to decide which phone to get this year. I decided Nexus. ICS and now Jelly Bean looks perfect on stock. That's how it should be. Skins ruin the experience and this is the first time I've ever said this. I've already explained this on other blogs....it's Nexus devices from now on.

I mean can I do the long press of home to get voice actions to switch songs or make a call while I'm offline? Not that I intend to ever be offline, but it is annoying to have to wait for the server to determine I want to make a phone call or listen to a song.

The voice is so crazy fast, accurate, and pleasant sounding that I giggle each time I use it

i bet it is the same new voice that is used in google nav, after the update to Google Maps yesterday i noticed a different very un robotic voice that was used for navigation. It was nice.

Has anyone with the mid-call muting issue who has installed JB noticed if it is fixed? I'm guessing not, but worth a shot...

I really hope that Verizon does right by my CDMA Galaxy Nexus brothers.

The muted call thing is simply unacceptable and they need to get to the bottom of that.
We are about to go into -JULY- and it's not resolved.

What I feel bad about is that I will get Jelly Bean officially in July and it may be December or later that my Verizon brothers get it.

It's just .... unacceptable to me and that's why I dumped Verizon.
They are not taking the time to resolve a problem festering since December of last year..... I don't get that...

I hope that these issues are resolved with Jelly Bean!

I would do it, but I'm traveling and in an area where the mid-call muting has not really been reported much in the surveys I've seen.

I can't check for you mid-call mute folks, I have never had the issue, thankfully. But I am in love!

WOW! you just say "Google" without pressing a button to initiate voice search on Google Now. Cool!

I just ordered the unlocked Galaxy Nexus for $349. That is such a good deal. I will be coming from two years with the iPhone 4, and an really looking forward to having the pure google experience with JB. Google really spanked Apple this year with this update. The only things that concern me are the screen and camera are kinda worse than the iPhone. Also going to 16gb storage from 32gb will take some getting used to...

How is the battery life on the GSM Galaxy Nexus?

So I assume the phone is always "listening" like the Vlingo InCar feature? I wonder how much it will tax the battery?

Actually the voice dictation in ICS is awesome, it completes words as you say them vs doing it all at the end (which Swiftkey still does). Jelly Bean should be even better as it won't depend on a data connection. I still use Swiftkey, but the voice dictation improvements of the stock keyboard tug strongly at me.

I'll probably throw this on my phone before I send it back just to play with and see if it fixes the problem (doubtful).

Nope... I had a one way audio encounter tonight on JB. Didn't do a factory reset after install and it is only the 3rd OWA I've had in 2 months

I will say... JB makes the Gnex buttery smooth. I get no lag with the live wallpapers now!!!

Anyone care to guess how long before we see 4.1 on the Verizon "Nexus"?

I sometimes wonder if it's worth leaving my unlimited data and switch to a GSM Nexus to enjoy direct updates.

Bashing Verizon is fun but since when do they have a reputation of not getting out updates. They are not TIMELY, but they do send out updates. Shoot, the OG Incredible just got an update this week. Will be interesting to see how far behind they are on them.

fwiw there is already a thread asking this exact same question. I do realize that it is fairly large and is now talking about JB being on the G Nex because of the roms that came out yesterday. It still has some good info in it tho. I would probably just read the last three pages.

When is Jelly Bean 4.1 Coming to the GNex?

For those who already have JB, can you tweak the Google search bar or change it back to just an outline? I don't like seeing a white bar across the top of the screen.

Transparent yes but the inside of the box still has white shading. I was hoping to be able to make only a white outline with no fill inside the search box like pre-JB versions. I think it blends into the homescreen better. I'm picky

I am running 4.1.

i posted a thread on XDA asking how to go from yakju to JB...

upgrading from Yakju to Jelly bean... how? - xda-developers

I don't know who built the build I was told to install using the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit, but it is working, still using the yakju radio though... and my nexus is not rooted.

I don't want to root my Vzw GNex. If I root it, I can't rent movies via the Play Store as the Play Movies become unavailable when rooted. Unless there a way to get Jelly Bean on my Next without rooting, I gotta wait.

Even the 4.0.4 in-call bluetooth issue?

I never had the issue in 4.0.4 so I couldn't tell you personally but Bluetooth audio definitely works fine in 4.1. Then again, I was rooted and going by the looks of it, Bluetooth was a stock issue.

Could someone running 4.1 please answer a quick question. Does it support groups? As in allow you to do anything with groups. 4.0 allows groups but they're completely pointless.

Also wanna throw in that while Verizon took the longest to put 4.0.4 on their Nexus, the build on the VZW Nexus is in fact a newer build than the 4.0.4 that is on the GSM Nexus; a lot of people don't know that.

According to the following link, it's still happening. I'm giving up and going to the RAZR Maxx...sigh. I'm going to escalate as far up as I can go as I also want a credit for the $100+ in accessories I've bought for the Nexus that I'll now have to purchase again.

Let me know how it goes with the accessories. I've bought a few too and would love to return them or exchange them.

Good luck with the accessories. I am sure your contract is specific as to what they will do. They do require at least 1 if not 2 replacements before they usually move you to another phone and that assumes a problem they internally admit is a defect in the phone.

Absent of that, they usually will let you make a lateral move of phone (preowned) but there is little chance they pay for accessories you bought.

OK, so what's the easiest way to root the Nexus (VZW)? I am reading the How-To's and I hardly understand half of it. Seems like my locked bootloader Droid X was easier.
