    I was pleased to finally receive update for my O2 network nfc S2.

    Howeber the google search widget is playing up. If I put in search term and press magnifying glass icon, the search page comes up but nothing happens. I have to touch another search field e.g. images and then touch web again for search to complete.

    Am I doing something wrong ?

    Just tried it on mine and it works fine

    Not sure if relevant, did you setup Google Now when you first ran it, mine is setup for using that

    There are 2 widgets for the Google Search, not sure why but they seem to do the same, under all apps/widgets it shows both, see if the other one works any difference

    Have you tried clearing cache for the Google Search app, might be corruption from the update, mine has quite a large cache so it seems like data from before the upgrade

    Have enabled Google Now

    Can't see option for clearing cache in Settings from within Google search - can you direct me ?

    If you go into the main Settings app

    then scroll down till you find Google Search, click into this and you should see an option to clear cache

    I have done this a few times with apps and it usually fixes any little odditites

    Go to Settings and scroll down and select "Application manager" then scroll right to All (applications) tab and you will find it there.
