    Still on ICS, but did install Google Now on my S3 for a while... till I noticed my battery life go to hell, noticed my phone ran about 5 degrees warmer on average(Fahrenheit), and the CPU would jump to max for a second on nearly every button push I did on my phone. So, yeah, Google Now is not worth what you get imo.

    iOS runs perfectly well with 'draw transition effects' - used Barrel and various other mods on my Jailbroken iPhone 4 for about 1.5 years.

    Sorry sir, negative feedback around Android is obviously a touchy subject for you. I'm sure your S3 specifically is out-doing all of ours with respect to animation frame-rates. It's definitely not the same.

    My point is you cannot quantify how much difference I have noticed.

    It was you who picked out that I had noticed a massive difference, to besmirch it (For what reason, who cares?!). The fact is you are in no position to do so. It is not possible for you to know what I saw before or what I saw afterwards. Its like you telling me how bacon tastes to me.

    ...and if you're asking if my S3 is better than yours, well yes obviously it is. Yours is rubbish and smelly.

    EDIT> Yes I have overclocked my GPU so I am as point of fact has it, pulling out a higher FPS. That said, this was also the case before I upgraded to JB so my comparison between ICS and JB remains relevant.

    So has JB been completely rolled out? I'm trying to figure out if its because I'm rooted that I'm not getting the update or just because it hasn't gotten to my device.

    I've only rooted to remove carrierIQ so no roms or anything.

    I have the international version I believe of the S3. It doesn't have any carrier badging and when starts up it says Moviestar. I am in the USA and have upgraded to JB through Kies not Root. When I was using ICS I had service and internet no problem. Now after update I have service but no internet.

    I have shut off my phone, pulled battery out for over 30 seconds, pulled sim out and reinserted, soft reset, factory reset, I called AT&T to see if my internet had been turned off.

    I don't know what else to do, please help me thanks

    Was the phone moviestar before? Are your APN correct?

    Do you obtain Internet from wifi? Have you re-entered the password for the wifi network? Airplane mode off, wifi on?

    Yes it has been Movistar this whole time. I looked at the APN it is filled with movistar things and has passwords set up already. I haven't changed them and don't know what to change them to if they were wrong. Could you please explain some steps I would take with this please

    Airplane mode is off. I am able to obtain wifi, the wifi I use is unsecured so no pw needed.

    I contacted AT&T after 30 minutes they did a bunch of refreshing and changing settings and nothing happened. They transferred me over to Samsung and they told me they can't help this situation.


    I tried following the steps in this video and when it came to adding an APN for some reason it would never save....please let me know other options guys thanks

    ok I finally figured it out!!

    How to Get an Unlocked Phone to Work on AT&T & T-Mobile - YouTube

    You only do about half the things it says to do...

    APN = wap.cingular
    Proxy= Not set
    Port= 9201

    I did not touch anything else. When I did it would delete everything else i had entered. Now my only problem is sending MMS text. I will update if I figure a way around this.

    UPDATE: Found out how to do MMS lol

    under a new APN change the following according to the video


    that's all!! :D

    Default app bug is annoying. A long wait for the fix in 4.1.2? Not sure what causes it, but it is documented apparently.

    For anyone who hasn't noticed this yet; selecting certain default apps for actions no longer works. Certain launchers and keyboards in my experience. I think it's linked to paid apps - Play Store is installing them incorrectly. Details here, I didn't read in full so forgive me for any misunderstandings.

    What annoys me about default apps is the replacement of the tick box. I think it was mentioned earlier in this thread. There used to be a button and it was made default or not depending on the state of the tick box.

    Now, you have to press a default button or a just once button. I know its a bit pedantic but this wastes valuable thinking time and you need to be careful not to press the wrong one. Grrr

    True! And it's made worse by the fact it doesn't even work anyway :(

    It's VERY annoying. Now the wait for 4.1.2...

    Is it everything that it doesn't work for? I only really noticed it in tapatalk with browsers and urls. I'm testing so many applications to find the best, most of the time choosing a default would be detrimental to the process

    Samsung for some unknown reason decided to turn dock and driving functionality off by default in JB. They have not admitted it was on purpose or not afaik.
  20. andy9l

    andy9l Well-Known Member

    I believe it's with anything installed since JB - anything you installed on ICS will still work as a default, and can be set as a default again.

    Don't quote me on that though, I may be mistaken.

    Granted I'm running a JB ROM (AOKP 4.1.2 on AT&T), but it is soooo much faster and smoother, amazingly so. Google Now has disappointed me, I was looking forward to using it, but it really is a battery drain and wakes up the maps application ALOT. It blows ICS out of the water over all though imo.

    Recieved the jb update yesterday in my country.It does seen a bit smoother than ics.Havent noticed any difference with battery drain when google now is on. Biggest plus for me was my wifi seemed to be a lot more stable then with ics. Of course had to reroot my phone, which btw i bought simfree. Need a little longer to play around with jb. Oh love the photosphere,but damn thing keepa crashing saying gallery stopped. Boooooo to that

    I have two major problems with Jelly Bean. First and most aggravating is the fact that you can't change volume for ringer and notifications. It has just ONE setting for both the ringer and setting volume - so calls come in at same volume at notifications for text and e-mails. That's a major pain. Second, less significant but a pain still, when swiping text (my third android phone, so I swipe pretty well), you do NOT get the word suggestions when going back over reviewing a text. Used to be able to tap a word and get suggestions at bottom of screen. Touch the suggestion that's usually right, and it would insert automatically. Now, to correct a word, you have to tap the word and erase one letter at a time and then type it in. They've made it LESS user friendly in my opinion. Jelly Bean is smoother. Some advantages, but nothing noticeable to me. In fact, it's worse in numerous ways than older versions.

    "First and most aggravating is the fact that you can't change volume for ringer and notifications. It has just ONE setting for both the ringer and setting volume - so calls come in at same volume at notifications for text and e-mails."

    My JB settings display Ringtone and Notifications as two separate slider bars for the volume.
