    The battery life seems to be improved. 100% remaining after two hours off charging and wifi on. Before the updated I'd be on 90% now.
    Overall, the phone seems to run a bit more smoothly. I have not noticed anything negative, yet. Battery is, as for now, the biggest improvement
    and most clear that I've noticed.

    I have not noticed any difference either way. So, I can't really tell. Heard some people complaining about the quality/sharpness after the update.

    Djuice, Norway here as well. Battery life seems better, and the battery indicator more stable - not taking what seemed like random leaps every once in awhile.

    Pictures taken in daylight are noticeably sharper. Usually I've had to give it a couple of shots for them to be acceptably crisp. Now they are almost every time. And that's pretty damn awesome! :)

    I noticed a bit of more smoothness in the OS as well, transitions seems to be faster too.

    I haven't noticed any difference, but I didn't take any camera shots either :)

    Anyone other than me who thinks the phone needs ability to have custom sms sound instead of preselection?
    I wanna use Zelda - Open Chest theme when I get a sms or message :)

    Also am I the only one who put brightness to Medium rather than auto?
    It's like Auto is even less bright than low.

    For better battery life let ur phone drain completely so that u cant switch it on then charge overnight. Do this a couple of time. Works a treat.
