A proof for this are two official Samsung ROMs that have leaked for the company's Droid flagship. The two versions in...

I am affraid that ics will bring nothing to end user... it will look different, but will not be more user friendly. Everything seems so small and dark, it might bee just too minimalistic.
speed up of some interface is unnecessary, maybe call log and organiser need some improvement, but hardly that all new os was necessary...
Just a thought... I like my GSII the way it is!

What are you all whining about?! Just use this ROM, install QQ Launcher and basta! There you go! A superb ICS smartphone! I just benchmarked the browser with browsermark and got a whopping 104.872!!!!!! Thats 2.5x as fast as stock 2.3.5!!!

Hideous!! Unimpressive,lacklustre............a few words that were formed in my mind in a nanosecond!!!
Come On Sammy....it seems all that sales of SG2 have gone into your head!
Its easy to win but whats more difficult is to be consistent & innovative.........don't look like a darkhorse that notched up some mind-boggling numbers by chance...no doubt you have the NOTE but then again people's memory is really shortlived,so unless you don't spruce up your act,you will be found that you are ditched.
As it is you have take a few steps in the wrong direction...viz...no updates (official) for the original S....a cheap looking upgrade( I can hardly believe it) in the form of Ace Plus to the sexy original ace.( It's a good device in that price-point) & now this!!
This is horrendous & I am applled.

Stock Android looks a lot better than this. TouchWiz is ridiculously ugly.

Tried using 4.0.1. Totally buggy version. 4.0.3 is much much better but still few core parts has to be fixed. Not much of apps also working. Waiting for a stable version :)

i don't like this version. it's like gingerbread with few changes, the number. i like the unofficial buggy version because it is completely different. Samsung galaxy s2 is a great smartphone so i will still wait until the official ICS comes.
