Anonymous, 28 Dec 2011there's a reason why Samsung isn't going to update it, look what Apple did to their previous i... moreI have an iPhone 3GS and it runs on iOS 5.0.1
And boy is it smooth. It's the best OS available in the market and I was given it after 2 years of my original purchase of the 3GS. Apple takes care of it's customer. Many others do as well. But some don't.
Sad for Samsung customers but they deserve it after buying Samsung products.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2011Um, you bought a 20 month old design phone (SGS) and expect it to get an upgrade to an OS that... moreBro, you think that: ICS wasn't imagined 20 months ago, that SGS 1 with ICS can't really handle it? Really? Is that what you think? ICS isn't like windows 95 compared with windows 7 or anything. It's a bit better. Looks very similar to me. And a phone like the sgs1 can do it no problems.
AnonD-14018, 28 Dec 2011Now thats kinda stupid o_O Who needs a value pack . I want ICS , i want dictation voice , pano... moreWhy not sell your current device and get SGS2. What should you expect from a 2 year old handset? grow up and spend some money, coz that is business :)
RamyRamz69, 28 Dec 2011A tip for the people who plan on getting a 2011 SE phone:
All Sony Ericsson phones running ... moreGet your facts straight bro. Both Xperia Arc phones feature a 4.2inch screen , while Samsung Galaxy S2 has a 4.29inch screen. Fanboy .
On the other hand I do not agree with Samsung's decision, the customer service may not be the best one, but hey.. I updated my phone to 2.3.5 from xda cuz Kies was constantly giving errors, but I dont give a crap about voiding my warranty . lol.
SGS Users go and head over to XDA and get stock ics.
2x, 28 Dec 2011Oh really?
Samsung Galaxy S - 2010
SE 2011 phones - 2011 see the diference?
What about th... moreThe main difference between s.e and Samsung is huge, because both didn't do well in updating their phones in the past, however, s.e did a remarkable job that no other company did which is updating all their 2011android phones including the low end.
On the other hand, Samsung released around 10 android phones this year and only is upgrading 2 of them to ICS! Wtf man, what kind of support is this.
I like both Samsung And s.e but I must admit SE are doing so much better lately, I'm so glad I went with the Xperia play instead of the GS2 which will be out of the game by early next year.
Don't you get it? You can't stay in the past, and Samsung is counting on that. Buy a new phone, simple and direct. And make Samsung happy. And you a little poorer.
hopefully my 1 day old galaxy w will get the service package as well, boy do i missed my nokia super gps & user friendly features, well win some lose some.
Samsung is crap!
Same story different device. All this old fart companies don't care they just want to flood the market sell millions of devices release an apology statement about how they tried everything but can't make it work.
i want the real android 4.0. if i don't have the 4.0 i will install a custom rom :)
MM, 28 Dec 2011I'm ok with you, there's a part of marketing.
Samsung is a seller after all and wants to sell... moreand i really like how u judge the thing when haven see a prototype for it .
and for those people who saying SGS will laggy after update to ICS just by "imperfect version" of port ICS . Its better you do some research before press the send button .
[deleted post]there is no network access on roaming
AnonD-8676, 28 Dec 2011What about Samsung Galaxy SL?Don't looked at me...
Go to XDA and get ICS today, works great in I9000 voice search and everything else. There are still a few minor bugs in the two major versions available but nothing serious. Works perfectly as a daily rom.
sgs owner, 28 Dec 2011then how about galaxy s plus which was just released half a year ago? and galaxy w, y, etc... ... moreman samsung can updat it w/o touchwiz. but any cmpny nvr giv updats wtout ui custmzatn. surely touchwiz is pwrful dan timescap of sony. in dat caes sony can updat devics wit less weight timscap. but samsng csant do wit heavy touchwiz
Samsung is just lazy.
This can be also implied as Touchwiz is a resource-hog.
Who needs TouchWiz anyway?
I will be waiting for onecosmic or CM9 ICS ROMs...
