    I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, purchased direct from Google. Still waiting for the update. I was hoping to see it come yesterday. Anyone get this update pushed to their Nexus phone yet? If so, what model is it?

    Thanks!

    no, i have not. i'm curious if i will, as my phone has a bad esn, so i use it as a wifi device only. i hope i get it. sounds like the push will come directly from google and not the carrier.

    i hate carriers. haha

    In the past, updates have taken 2-4 weeks to get to me. They phase the roll outs. I take that as a good thing as they are working out the update bugs as they go along.

    But I did check three times yesterday and once today - because I'm an idiot.

    Google stated that the following devices will receive Android 4.3 beginning 7/24/13.
    Galaxy Nexus
    Nexus 4
    Nexus 7 (2012 version)
    Nexus 10

    Rollouts are staggered, so a fraction of users got it last night, likely a very tiny fraction. This rollout should progress more after the first week. Users who do not want to wait can download the factory image from Google and load manually. Supposedly this includes the Galaxy Nexus, but I haven't followed it closely. I'm a GPE user.

    I've checked every few hours. Which seems stupid, because it will tell me when it is available. I just don't know how often it checks on its own.

    I hear ya. The geek in me just enjoys having it long, Long, LONG before people with non-Nexus phones.

    Who doesn't?!? Google should become a cell service provider, like they are with internet/tv/home phone.

    Verizon, Sprint and both GSM versions of Galaxy Nexus images are available.

    It will be interesting to see what happens to Google Play Experience phones. Hugo said "soon". Which I take to mean that the OEMs will roll it out. Something about the way he said it. Their images certainly are not uploaded anywhere as of right now.

    Yeah this is where you see the difference between Nexus and GPE i guess.

    Google should defo get into the carrier business and do it for zero profit, unlimited data for androids. Im sure they hate the carriers as much as us and its in their interests to have us using the internet as much as possible :beer:

    I read the blurb and I don't want it. I'd like to block it. It has nothing I need or want.
    What I have now is working just the way I like it, so why should I bother? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I'm in the UK and have manually flashed official 4.3 from Google devs for my nexus 4 and I can honestly say that there is no difference apart from the layout of the camera options! Its as smooth as 4.2.2. I thought I had read they were going to change the font but it doesn't look any different :-( I wanted key lime pie.

    I used to have an s3 too and it was very smooth so it can't really get any smoother. I will test the battery usage tomorrow when I'm at work as I have flashed this evening. I know that the kernel has been updated so battery use may be better.

    The camera interface is actually a big deal to me and looks like a huge improvement. For some reason, the wheel really bothers me as I constantly have to look around my fingers to see what I am selecting.

    I had heard good things about:
    - battery life
    - more efficient bluetooth

    I also heard about a revamp to notifications. Not sure what exactly. I am just trusting that LightFlow knows what to do for me and will update LightFlow for me in a timely manner.

    So, I will update when the OTA comes to me. But maybe I will wait for the LightFlow update first.

    What i hate about the stock cam is that theres icons that i dont understand instead of a worded menu. Also jhe ring doesnt feel intuative to me :beer:

    Oh yeah i know Andrew the LF dev gets warned in advance by google. When google pushed the new gmail he had a fix before anyone noticed the bug lol :)

    Running it on my nexus 7 for the past 24hours

    Didn't bother waiting for the OTA, downloaded the factory image and installed it myself

    Sleeps just fine. (Image is about an hour screen on time)

    Other than that... its on my tablet, so battery life isn't something that gets the limit pushed

    Nothings gonna blow your mind, its an incremental update

    It rolls out in stages.

    If you're that keen on getting it right away, there are non root methods to manually update
