Great to hear about the forthcoming update, which I hope will arrive for UK SIM free owners in early Jan.

But i really want to hear whether Samsung intend to fix the notorious 'black clipping' issue, which affects loads of Note users. As much as I welcome JB and Project Butter goodness, if anything is going to cause me to upgrade to Note 2, it's going to be these video playback issues. In all honesty, I don't expect them to fix it - all a ploy to get owners to upgrade. Disappointing.

I hope to see a better battery management with this update on the Note. I've rooted my Note with the pre-released Android 4.1.2 for it, and somehow the features mentioned are the same.

Although I appreciate the update, adding in new life to my 13-month-old unit, it can never have some of the Galaxy Note II's capabilities which I compared thoroughly:

*Note I can't work with the new wireless All Share Cast HDMI accessory dongle or new desktop dock with multiple connection ports.
*Note I has no NFC & its All Share feature is limited only with pictures & not videos to share to other units.
*Note I isn't as fluid with the UI since it only has a dual-core processor & half the RAM of the Note II.
*Note I can do only 4 hours of internet browsing compared to the Note II's almost 9 hours.
*Note I has no S Pen hover preview - this is probably Samsung is holding off
*I only suspect that the Note II's power efficiency is due to the bigger battery, new tech screen, and better power program scripting.

Everything else is awesome! I love the split screen windows, gallery format,new pull-down bar, S Note thumbnail page preview, and video player.

I hope to be surprised with this real official update, probably able to connect to the wireless All Share Cast HDMI dongle.

Will Samsung fix the exynos bug and the screen bug that causes shadows to display wrongly, in this new update? Please gsmarena, do you know anything about this matter? Did samsung say anything about this when officially announced the new update?

When will ace2 get JB? This is so frustrating. I love my ace2 but as if we're already on our own, we are not receiving any news or we're clueless when we will get the update.
