    Practically speaking, you won't get the Nokia improvements.
    What you will get?

    -Bug fixes for XBOX Music, for the Other Storage problem and other miscellaneous stuff.
    -FM Radio
    -Support for new media codecs

    I think that's about it.

    Since you're a Samsung owner, you'll also get a temp file clearer.

    Oh, and the ability to update maps one street at a time!

    And before I forget, ability to set default camera app!

    Hi, forgive my questions:
    If I do a factory reset after installing the GDR2, isn't the GDR2 uninstalled again?
    The other question: from what I've read in this thread, after installing the GDR2 it will be necessary to install all the apps again, is it right?
    Thank you for your attention.

    Nope, after hard reset you will still have gdr2 and features like sense now showing. Regarding the apps, I had to reinstall everything, probably because I did not use backup apps when logging with the live account. P.S.- I got the update about a month ago - unlocked i8750/Romania. Hope it helps.

    Thanks for the reply. I was clarified. I only don't like the idea of having to re-install several dozen apps ... I hope this justifies the work. Greetings from Portugal

    I have GDR2, heck GDR3 and I can dispute some claims:

    No, we did not get FM Radio
    No, we did not get a temp file clearer until GDR3
    No, I have 8GBs of other storage. Not even GDR3 helped it.

    At last: GDR2 - 8.0.10327.71 - from Norwegian Telenor on unlocked/unbranded phone.

    Not much to get excited about. Waiting for GDR3.

    You don't "download" Data Sense, it's baked into the update. You might need to perform a factory reset to get it to show up though.
