I can not really see any reason why I should upgrade to ICS, stereo recording in videocamera is the only thing that I did not already have in GB, but there are so many apps and games that are not usable at all on ICS, and Chrome beta browser is not good! Miren browser can not handle Adobe Flash in ICS and I think Miren was a lot better than Chrome beta is!
•Better UI for switching apps and killing them
go into meego (n9) -> "copy" -> paste!!
Bench mark gingerbread was 6000+ Ics is just 4800 .why ?

AnonD-252, 17 Mar 2012You just have to press home+power a little longer on ICS than was needed on GB!thanks for the response... got it working using vol+power... just needed to hold it a bit longer than before...

Also, Swype's working fine. Except that the update wiped my existing personal dictionary..
just updated to ICS from Philippines, everything was faster, much smoother and ADOBE FLASH "IS" supported, just update your adobe flash from google play.
Although some apps freezes and blacks out, but its understandable since some of them doesn't supports ICS "YET", give it some time and ICS will be a blast
