Galaxy Nexus update to 4.1.1 Jelly Bean

      Comments Off on Galaxy Nexus update to 4.1.1 Jelly Bean

Now that I have my new Galaxy Nexus I can enjoy the joys of using Android updates as they happen.  With my old Galaxy, I have updated only once and it was to the same version of Android.

After turning on Nexus for the first time I have upgraded to 4.0.2 and then to 4.0.4 in minutes. A few days ago I got the update from Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS; Android 4.0) to Jelly Bean (JB, Android 4.1). The update was smooth as expected, and the new features are interesting. Some of them can’t be used outside US, which is a shame, but other are at least nice.

There should have been also increase in performance and battery life, but I haven’t yet discovered that. The performance was great even with ICS, the battery life is still bad with JB.

Here is what I’m running now:

Android version 4.1.1
