I've been dreaming of swiping (nfc) the phone on a printer & get document printed through phones only. rather than download it to PC then starts the printing. please implement google.... we might need new printers again..... lol. making more trash of old technology. please recycle, for those big & huge company.... resell your old electronolics & electrical product.. rather than buy new tech gadget. to support new OS'es. my old HTC dz still kicking running custom ROMs. Lol.... recycle... for those who can afford new tech with new OS. why not... it drives economy & bit of inflation, even though many competing brands & models.

Nothing major change in the UI. It's basically the same from ICS. Just more lags, heats, and worst security issues in Android. Not to forget, NSA spy on Android users like me. NSA officials can collect data such as contact list, call log, SMSs, live chat history, browsing data, read your emails, access files from your email and all that without warrants in Android OS. Everyone using Android are worried about their privacy, me included.

What do you mean FAKE?

your Number 1 can be challenged, it isnt ALWAYS been that, you can go to your build prop and edit some of those settings to see characters instead of numbers

2. yeah photo editing has been since ICS actually, or MODDED ICS, but this can be an UPDATE

3. I see what your saying.

BUT there is a new Android, that will share the same base, but differently unique!

looks exactly like my Android pfft, the payment tab can be implemented under CM, so this is weak.

Plus you could already Print from your phone!

I owned an S3 which worked smoothly for some 5-6 months and then it started slowing down.i had reset the device several times. One month back I bought lumia 925 which is is really a great device with refreshingly new interface. The tiles are really cool and the camera is fantastic in low lights. If u really want a new user experience, buy some Lumia device.
As aginst the general belief, the windows store has all the necessary apps (why do we need apps for killing cockroaches) and games. HD games run without any glitches.
The only drawback i felt is that it don't have a file explorer/ file manager

I call BS on this poor photoshop attempt.
Reasons as follows:
1. 'Android Version' in Settings has ALWAYS been a number, not a name regardless of iteration.

2. The 'new' photo editing features being displayed have been around since Jellybean! And then some additional fake, and poorly rendered features were added to make it look new. Oh please!

3. Look at the 'Manage Mobile Plan' option in the settings...can't you tell how out of place it looks with the continuity of the image? Blurring the rest doesn't take away from just how off it all looks.

You guys really need to do your homework.
You're being taken for a ride.

Its getting stupid,they update colour scheme or add new app and then announce new O/S as such,,these are minor updates and bug fixes not a WHOLE NEW O/S ..They keep adding nothing or its trivial and update the O/S with new name and folk on GSMArena moan and moan about getting next Android desert when nothing really happens its all psychological.

I have seen this for past few years and why ICS AND jELLY bEAN still version 4 and now KITKAT still version 4 just proving that the updates are pathetic nonsense not worthy or a new name.Psycological rubbish.
