Got an update on my Verizon Galaxy S3 today... They moved the location of the refresh button on the browser. Talk about annoying... I keep trying to click where it used to be, but that is now a back button.

I have Chrome and FF mobile d/l already, but being somewhat of a creature of habit, I haven't really used them. Will have to give them a more serious shot now.

I like chrome a lot. It syncs with my laptop bookmarks. The tabs are more organized and slick than the stock browser

I just dragged Chrome onto the bar (and was pleasantly surprised that it just swapped places with Internet) so now I'll be using Chrome without having to think about it.

So apparently my phone has stopped syncing with Yahoo since the update. Can't even get it to manually update. It will claim that it synced, but I can plainly see in my inbox that I've received email over the past 2 days.

Just got a VZN Galaxy S3 yesterday, and the OS updated immediately. Woot.

Did anyone else have an issue when your droid updated that you battery life is now half what is was before?

The only issues I have with my droid is when I go home to my parents' place. Then my battery drains at a crazy level.

Haven't really been paying attention to the battery so far... more annoyed with the email situation.

I used Dolphin HD on my Droid X, and I liked it a lot. Sticking with Chrome for the S3.

Edit: as for the battery issue with the new update, I'm guessing this new Google Cards are using more juice. My phone shows the screen using a huge amount of battery (which is normal), and then maps...but I haven't used maps other than in the Cards.

So my ringer quit working, the guy at ATT said my subwoofer was shot. Any chance that's covered under warranty? the phone is about 9 months old.

I had to do a reset and even then I couldn't get yahoo to connect. Finally, I set it up as a standard Imap account and it finally worked.

This is the second time a Verizon update messed up my phone. Back on my X one update broke the Market application and I had to do a reset.

if you download better battery stats in the market you can determine what is draining the battery, its shouldn't be google now.

Google Now is awesome. I googled a winery on my laptop, then i picked up my phone and had directions waiting for me. Can't wait till it gets some updates and gets even better (more creepy). Supposedly it'll pull things from Gmail like flights for digital boarding passes and airport info. I'm flying next week, so I'm anxious to see how it works.

The Google Cards service is wild. From home, it told me the time to work and traffic conditions...in my rural town! :shock: I read somewhere that Google Maps uses "swarm" traffic to determine travel times and conditions. So if a car with an Android (or any phone with Google Maps?) slows down in traffic, this data is uploaded to Google. It then relays the info to others traveling the same route.

I think you might be right. Not sure if it's half, but I do think it is draining a bit faster...

Gotta love millions of data points... can you imagine the processing power necessary?
