    The main advantages (from my understanding) are what is called Project Butter {Proyecto Mantequilla} to make the screen movements as smooth as butter and not so jerky. They could be honest and call it Project Apple. Another advantage is the look on people's faces when you tell them you've upgraded to Jellybean ie. bragging rights (not much shine left in bragging about ics)

    I'm loving the new stock browsers quick controls, very futuristic.

    My Jellybean experience is not off to a good start. Apps take much longer to launch. Screen rotation is painful. I have rebooted a few times and hope that this will work itself out.

    To me the only difference with the quick controls in honeycomb compared to ICS was slight aesthetic change. In jellybean the layout is different, parts appear and disappear as you move your thumb around. Took me a while to get used to it, but seems so much better now.

    If a soft reboot doesn't help you might have to bite the bullet and do a factory data reset.

    What I like, the smoothness when moving from one screen to another. The animation when opening or closing an app. Google now which I found by accident when you press and hold the home button.
    What I hate, the screen rotation as someone said is really painful. I think they really need to fix the screen rotation.

    Things seem to be working themselves out. I read on other forums that installation can take a while before everything works right. The 200 free Amazon apps of the day I have and 64GB of media on my SD card might have caused some background processes to take some time to complete.

    The transitions animation between screens is fluid and looks nice when transitions occur.
    Google Now is interesting. Still workin' with it.
    Flash still works just fine.
    The movie camera has some interesting features.
    Its not a huge shock n awe.
    Your notifier section has some new features.
    Still just diggin' away lookin' for other surprises in my settings.
