  1. The phone is noticeably faster. But other than that, very few changes. The icons are all white. Plus full album art on the lock screen. RAM management has improved slightly though not by much.. GPS icon in notifications has changed to Location. Still exploring to see if any other new features

    1. Hi Utsav,

      Have upgraded as well. Phone is noticeable faster, however RAM management does not seem to have improved. Whereas earlier it would utilize about 550mb/1.74gb it now utilizes at least 1 GB.

      On the battery as well, earlier I used to get about 2 days on 4.1.2 whereas now am getting about 1 day on regular usage. Are you facing the same?

  4. Hi. I received the update notification yesterday and updated it via OTA. But many features are missing. Like immersive mode and “ok google” in home screen. Please tell me how to use immersive mode in my Note 2 N7100. Thanx

  5. Nothing new except the version number! Slight increase in speed, that’s all. No extra apps, settings, features!
