i can live without jelly bean. i'm a galaxy note 1(N7000) user,still use gingerbread os (v2.3.6),but can play almost all android games or use new applications with no problem or lag,but if i want to change new smartphone, i better change to phone that can upgrade from jelly bean to key lime pie os soon or better, the smartphone that already has key lime pie os on it. :)
ICS for the win, I actually have a Lenovo tablet... no JB coming ever.
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2013Watch review of these devices... and feel my pain.
Padfone Infinity (Tablet mode) - android... moreOk, I guess u r just reading reviews. Go and work on Nexus tablet on hand. Then put the same comment i'll agree. I've a Nexus 7 and Samsung Tab 10. I never felt anything with notification and on-screen keys.
And again i'm reminding u there are no swipe down notification in tablets, You are clearly confusing with phone and tablet interfaces. If u mean notification as something else please enlighten me.
JB, I was so excited, but now it's a bit disappointed. It's unable to creat a folder. I think GB still rules JB

Tired of linking youtube .. just google and see for yourselves the horrors.. no wonder ipad sales still the best.

Since Honey Comb its single tap bottom notification for tablets.
JB 4.1.2 Tablet = MASSIVE failure.
The Nex10 /7 tablet UI is a PAIN to use, and crap beyond crap... Try clicking the software keys in the MIDDLE of a BIG tablet... driving me insane!.. And the STATUS BAR on top.. waste even more space... COPY iPAD??? Try to swipe down notificaiton using a 10 inch tablet while holding with the other hand.
Even on phone, people are unwilling to upgrade due to battery problems and lame issues.
Instead of leaving the good UI alone and concentrate on fixing LAG, they include more crap UI decision and useless features..
RAGGEEEEE... time to root and get rid of JB.
AnonD-1038, 04 Jun 2013If they want to increase JB they should make all android phone upgrade from GB to JB. I hope S... moreThat will not happen simply because they WANT YOU to buy an new premium phone, and not making budget ones powerful.
If they do that for sure you will not buy premium ones since you will have the latest OS.
And if old or low specs phones get JB wheres the cool factor (besides hardware) to get a new one more expensive?.
coldfire2005, 04 Jun 2013Low Budget phones are also coming with JB now , Ginger bread owners are those mobile users who... moreYep but this show you they STILL selling GB phones, and in emerging markets GB are selling like crazy.
For every S4 (ar any other premium) they sold 10 or more low budget ones are on. Maybe people get amazed on Samsung sales numbers BUT there will be an amazing numbers on low budgets around the world sales, is not the same getting an +500 dlls phone than a 120 dlls ones.
In this area ZTE, Huawei, Alcatel, etc are making a very impressive work since they not need and flagship phone to make big numbers just 5 o 7 low budget ones to make big profits...ans continue selling GB phones.
If they want to increase JB they should make all android phone upgrade from GB to JB. I hope Samsung Galaxy Pocket Have JB Update.
coldfire2005, 04 Jun 2013Low Budget phones are also coming with JB now , Ginger bread owners are those mobile users who... moreThat's about sums it up. Companies don't update the so called "old" phones to make you buy new phones. That's why gingerbread is still the leader. People don't use it because they love it. They use it because they are forced to do so. Very cheap company tricks. Google should do somethinkg about it. Other than that nothing to do.
New phones are coming with JB, true. But there is still a trick there. They don't come with 4.2.2, at very best they come with 4.1.2. So they will always come behind. Another cheap trick and problem of Android. Samsung is out of this lately. They give the latest Android.
[deleted post]please read before posting comments... they're talking about ANDROID MARKET, so how could you see WP????
AnonD-4697, 04 Jun 2013Thres no sense if you have S4, S3, One, Xperia Z if the mayor sales are for the budget phones.... moreLow Budget phones are also coming with JB now , Ginger bread owners are those mobile users who are stuck in GB due to no update on their old phones
AnonD-45167, 04 Jun 2013I am still waiting 4 JB update to my SGace plus :(evn m w8in for the same... :(
Thres no sense if you have S4, S3, One, Xperia Z if the mayor sales are for the budget phones.
This just proves people stills buying (and using) low cost phones, and this makes me think the "amazing" sales numbers of S4 and S3 Samsung phones means nothing aside low bugdets phones (Huawei, Alcatel, SE, ZTE, etc) since they stills domain Android Market with Gingerbread...and in fact they still producing those phones in mass.
Why you bother to have the latest Android OS, they will still selling GB phones hehehe.
