Well here’s some bad news for some (most?) of you. It looks like even though the Samsung Galaxy S2 will receive an update to Android 4.0, it will look nothing like ICS at all. In fact you’ll barely notice any difference in the UI compared to what you have now. It will mostly be the same old TouchWiz 4.0. So most of the changes will be under the hood....

pls update tochwiz. 5.0 ...

For the record, those armchair critics of the mobile industry who have no idea what it takes to push one phone into the market much more multiple phones on different platforms with different versions. every pansy without a clue screaming for features they will never use or will use negligibly. don't make me laugh.

this is a question to all gs2 owners! i have just bought one and the colour banding is awful compared to my iPhone 4! My mates has the same and his is newer! will ICS get rid of this banding issue?

What is the point of announcing ICS on S2, if the new interface and features are not being used. What is the benefit of have a higher number in the About menu without any actual improvements?

Umm...EXACTLY. Because going by Samsung's track record, that's exactly how the final shipping firmware will look like.

I can only hope that Doomlord of xda can fix a new zergrush script for that ver or Samsung to put out the sources fast enough for MIUI or CM.

Silly fanboys. Did you really think google had something new to offer its OEM's and users???

ice cream sandwich is a bunch of rehashed ideas stolen from RIM, WebOS and Symbian: absolutely nothing fresh or innovative about it

If fanboys want to use something that doesn't feel outdated, they should try Windows Phone
