I thought S2 users were lucky enough to get Ice Cream Sandwich, i think Samsung are being very generous now.

Better get ready to cry because this is the LAST UPDATE FOR THE S2!!! Pull out your weeping buckets and get upset like usual because their will be NO MORE UPDATES for the S2 after Jelly Bean.

Enjoy your day :D

Let me remind u people that as pleasing as samsung phone screens are, sony is still the king of electronic product (quality) in general. So u guys should get ur facts right.

I don't agree with you the GS2 it's a very nice phone powerful CPU 1.2Ghz dual core , 16GB on board, Super Amoled screen, 8MP and was the best phone 2011 and 2012 just before the GS3.

Yes, Xperia S will also get the Jelly Bean, 342 ppi,
12 MP, 1.5 GHz dual core but how much it will cost you compare to the GS2?

Xperia S is of course a very nice phone but GS2 is cheaper and will get Jelly Bean like the latest phone while it is old but good enough to perform almost like to Xperia S.

This sounds awesome! This would make Samsung the company with the most Jelly Bean-running devices

Android updates are notoriously staggered and delayed thanks to the nature of the open-source operating system.
