    "Android Jelly bean is smooth as butter with excellent stock android user experience..."

    But Jelly Bean breaks Bluetooth voice dialing. The Voice search in general (or Google Now?) is not as good as on my old EVO. On the Verizon DNA I was only able to voice dial a contact after going into the settings and removing everything but “People” from the search. That still did not get the Bluetooth working. Kept trying to dial voice mail and such.

    to move to jelly bean and then didn't. Motorola Mobility is a joke, and I let everyone know to never buy one of their phones. You'll get left 4 versions behind before they've even taken the phone out of the stores.
