Very nice phone I am using for last two years. Apart from a battery issue which happened due to my mishandling I never had to take my fone to service center.
Nice features and value for money.

updated last week...

I was about to resell my mobile when i was using GB
Later made to try for update.
Upgrade failed while updating,again tried and got succeeded.
Now I love my mobile..
The previous "comments" was experienced.
Negatives were nothing compared to positives..
Battery is much better now No more comments..

upgraded to official ics via website..
My honest opinion about ics update..

absolutely flawless performance.
smooth like butter.
much better than gingerbread 2.3.4.
no glitches,no heating problems faced during charging..

Pros:
1)very nice UI
2)power saver option
3)wifi hotspot shortcut at notification
4)slider options at notifications
5)if media volume is full and if earphones are connected.. volume automatically decreased when you play.. to save ur ears
6)notification area is deep black and lools awesome
7)keyboard is nice
8)quick memo option is added and its simply superb
9)screenshot works great and after taking screenshot it comes in notification area..
10)Bluetooth receive or sent acknowledgment is given in notification area
11)added restart option when long press power button
12)camera interface is nice.. more options are added and photos are clear.. exposure is good..
13)brightness 0% is much dimmer than before
14)any gmail,whatsapp etc. Msg comes.. it has got profile pic included with message in notification area
15)in notification panel font became small.. so if more notifications appeared.. panel can take upto 9 or 10 notification symbols on that panel..
16)even though its ics, still apps can be moved to sd card
17)front cam added option inverted or original image
18)added smile,cheese etc option to take photo..
19)added extra large font size in display options
20)Chrome browser was given along with update.. as default app and and cannot be moved to sd..

Cons:
1)big drawback is gesture option removed for tap cursor
2)haptic feedback color changed before when we touched a particular button.. now no blue color is visible
3)music lovers lost beautiful options like.. no notification area shortcut is available.. (4)equalizer settings are not available in normal mode.. its available only in earphones mode..
(5)landscape mode showed all albums.. and we can slide for our favorite album.. now that 3D view is lost..
6)i use 8GB class 4 micro sd card and almost 100MB left in it.. when i turn ON or restart my device it takes more than 5 minutes to scan my memory card..
7)after every boot we need to change screen timeout.. as it goes back to 15 secs as default.. for some this feature may disappoint..
8)RAM is 512Mb but user available RAM is 477MB for gingerbread and 437MB for ics
9)no HDR option added to camera.. (i dont know weather it can be added via updates or not)
10) in gingerbread there used to be many font options as default in display settings.. in ics only 3 fonts are available(love font missing)

final words: more pros than cons.. i am enjoying ics.. lets expect jellybean soon
