after upgrade, ui isnt that responsive, and scrolling is stuttery.... i brought my phone to samsung service center to re-install ics, same results... i wish all manufacturers gives the option to downgrade, just exactly for this reason 'coz every update doesnt always work to some users...
people the samsung s2 ics is gargage , ive used it smooth from the homescreen but lags when it comes to apps and games esp gameloft games and live wall papers it keeps crashing and ive never had this on gingerbread etc .. the answer is to get rooted and intsall the latest ressurection remix ics for galaxy s2...trust me not even cm mod9 is that good
s2user, 26 Mar 2012Stop using crapware and useless launchers so as not to encounter problems. ICS is stable and a... moreyou're right about ics faster and smoother than gb. my s2 scores 4145 in quadrant. i also love apex launcher for a new experience.
As I have reported elsewhere:
News as reported yesterday.
"Telstra and Samsung have just unveiled the "ultra fast" Galaxy S II 4G which will run on Telstra's LTE network from tomorrow.
The 4G S II version also has a larger 4.5" (800×480) SuperAMOLED Plus screen, more potent 1.5GHz dual core processor and a bigger battery than original S II. It also kitted out with Near Field Communications chip built in for tag reading."
So is this a SII and a half?
It does show just how prepared Samsung is to address specific markets and adapt accordingly.
This is one reason why they are growing their market share.
Well done Samsung!
Stop using crapware and useless launchers so as not to encounter problems. ICS is stable and a lot speedier compared to GB. Non-S2 users should stop commenting here so as not to confuse potential buyers of this excellent phone.
shame on samsung... still did not receive any ics update @india for sgs 2... really disappointed...!!
Samsung seems to be getting it soon in coming days..have patience people..this source seems legit..
Its really disappointing. What is this?? is Samsung mocking at us?? I'll go for CM9.. this one looks is gingerbread .. is there any hardware acceleration? What about external controller?? Not even ICS blue color scheme. I hate Samsung more than anything now.... F U Samsung.. i used to like Tw but at least it should look something like ICS..
i dont know why people complain about ICS lagging. it is way smoother than GB. no lags for me. i especially like the animations.
petit , 26 Mar 2012you are right ICS is bullshit !! nothing seems to be working right , what that pains is adobe ... morejust updated to ics. i like it. very smooth. just download adobe flash in playstore.
Maaiz, 23 Mar 2012My advice to you guys...... dnt update ur s2 to ICS. its really unbearable.... laggy.... phone... moreyou are right ICS is bullshit !! nothing seems to be working right , what that pains is adobe flash not compatible with it. very sad .
Worst experience of using touch screen while using ICS. Too many bugs... frequently app crash, worst touch experience while using browser, worst experience while using Facebook desktop version... In short update is must to come out to fix these bugs..
meh I did the ICS upgrade, SGS2 was laggy and full of bugs and holes that I ended up going back to Gingerbread KF4
The SGS2 does not need ICS
