Ranjith, 22 Mar 2013Hi friends, I am going to buy S advance, Please help with this info 1)How about battery ... moreDont buy it buddy. The most important thing is that Samsung is cheating people stating that the Galaxy S Advance will be skipping the ICS update and will get the Jelly Bean update - Just think for yourself had samsung been caring for their customers then atleast by now they would release the ICS update.

There is no update information available at this time for your handset, nor is there an estimated release date.
