I had keep both I9100G and I9003 SL, even the I9003 SL is lower spec(Camera/Video) than I9100G, but I9003 SL is much more stable. I have to remove the battery every day to restart my I9100G, the phone keep hanging.

The phone does hang on any application, but since the upgrade to 2.3.6, this happen less by aaaalot. Chipset and Gpu wise, only the tech geeks would give a shit. Therefore,if you are not interested with rooting, than I9100G is an alright phone.

I feel there is something terminally wrong with your divice, and you better get it checked from Samsung. At any given point, its the display of the phone which shall use max power, and that too can't be above 40- 45 %. Your OS should be useing less than 20% power at any given time!

if you have the experience in camera/video hang in S2G and you have the setting to keep the photos/video in your SD card, maybe you can try the following steps see if can resolve the issue. Step1: format your SD card (remember to backup all your content from your SD card). If Step1 still couldn't help, try to change the setting to keep the photos/video in phone instead of memory card

I9100 id better than I9100G, because
1) Samsung's Exynos is a much better chipset than the common OMAP4430.
2) MALI-400MP graphics chipset is much more powerful than PowerVR SGX540 (which is the same one used in Galaxy S).

3) MOST IMPORTANTLY, ALL development of custom ROMs will be happening for I9100, NOT I9100G. This alone is a deciding factor for me.

Yes, both I9100 and I9100G will receive 4.0 ICS upgrade.
