Which Jelly Bean feature you like most?
The first Google I/O keynote is over, and man what a show that was! We got introduced to the new Android version - Jelly Bean, the new Nexus 7 tablet, Nexus Q multimedia streaming device AND a one-of-a-kind demo of Project Glass, featuring a bunch of sky-divers, bikers and wall-climbers. It was a pretty crazy stuff, but let's get back to what's actually most importnat to us at PhoneArena, and that it Android.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean comes with a number of very cool features that will definitely improve the experience on an Android device in a big way. Thankfully, the release won't be as tablet-centric as some reported, so our phone will also be able to take advantage of the new goodies. That's in case they get updated, of course... it not, we guess we'll just have to buy new ones. But anyway, the point is that we saw some really cool new features demoed today, and wanted to know which one you guys like best, or which one you think is the most important. Now's the chance to share your opinion with the world! Of course, if there was something that you think Google should have added with Jelly Bean, but it didn't, don't hesitate to say what it is by posting a comment below.

iOS 6 wasn't "awesome", but neither is this. I swear Android fans are trying to prove they can be more obnoxious than Apple fans.

If you think this is not an awesome OS...then probably you don't know what is a real mobile OS.
I own an iPhone 4 and want to sell it :)

It doesn't matter what phone you have or want, stealthd is right. iOS 6 sucked, but this update sucks. just as hard, maybe more. Anyone looking at this features OBJECTIVELY would agree.

How did this suck?
This is a software update after just over half a year. It has:
A new default browser.
A better notification management
A better home-screen Widget placing mechanism
An improved performance engine
New gallery features
An entirely new Voice assistant
Remember this is a 0.1 update - not a huge release. For a relatively minor update - this is HUGE!

I think your opinion would matter in Apple forums not here :)

thats the reason why this is a 0.1 update. not enough to be a 1.0 update.

Wow, good for Android, the world's most advanced mobile operating system. True story

Performance is a no brainer... arguably the biggest negative part of the OS i'm very glad that jelly bean fixed that problem...
Good job for android!

As a Windows Phone user, I have to say I am very happy with the improvements Android made in Jelly Bean. I always felt like Android used to release too many features too quickly, but this time it seems like the features were well thought out and really improve the core experience.
Still plan to stick with WP8 for my next device, but would love to give this a try.

you said it better than me lol
apple user here...
i'll be making my switch to windows 8 phone & tablet in the near future...
all though i wouldn't mind having that nexus 7 on the side just to have that experience of android's continuous growth and development.

what's so cool about jelly beans,besides they make me vomit

Jelly Belly makes vomit flavored Jelly Beans, so yo can experience a vicious circle, if you want.
You really should try new things.

It's not a feature, but all 6,000 attendees got a Galaxy Nexus. Now that's awesome lol! Anyway I like all the features.

still want to stick with wp8 but you have to admit the google have done very good job this time with performance and core user experience!!!
23. rudlie (Posts: 182; Member since: 13 Mar 2012)
the vote shows that's the most problem of android is performance. many people happy about performance improvements, but hold your breath now, it will done for your current device(s) next year :p
25. pellegrini (Posts: 83; Member since: 14 Jun 2012)
But isn't google's fault. If you have a nexus device, probably you will get your update next month, even the old Nexus S will get it.
The problems are the manufacturers and couriers, they will do whatever they can to sell more devices!

The Microsoft Event had much promise to show than Google I/O and I believe Microsoft is coming all guns blazing on Android and IOS. Watch out!
