In my opinion it's a big misstep from Samsung to not support ICS upgrades for the Galaxy S Plus:
ICS is a revolutionary upgrade, and one doesn't want to be left behind if you've bought a new Android handset in the past year or two: http://nvonews.com/2011/12/22/android-ice-cream-sandwich-things-that-make-ics-a-revolutionary-upgrade/
I was on the verge of upgrading to the Galaxy S Plus, until I realized the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is the better option. In general, Sony Ericsson seems to be better at providing Android upgrades for their existing handsets: http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/sony-ericsson-xperia-arc-and-neo-in-ics-tests-1046051

Sans, 19 Dec 2011which one to buy htc incredible s, samsung galaxy i9001, htc sensation. Please help me to figu... moreHTC Sensation. Unless you *know* that you're going to need every bit of battery life you can get (long trips and similar), battery life is poor in basically all smartphones - the difference between 1 day and 2 days of battery life is not worth caring about much.
Sony Ericsson got their act together a long time ago with the OS updates, you shouldn't worry about that. Consider Xperia Arc. I'm using it at the moment, its excellent except that battery life is poor. Also, their "scratch resistant" glass isn't really very scratch resistant.
Lastly, Galaxy S II is best, period. If you can afford it. But its worth it. Best camera, performance, screen colors (amoled), scratch resistance. Almost no shortcommings at all. Highly recommended.

which one to buy htc incredible s, samsung galaxy i9001, htc sensation. Please help me to figure out?
Incredible s/sensation has good camera,768MB RAM but very poor battery and 9001 has 1.4GHZ processor, comparatively better battery backup but worst camera in the segment also less RAM(512MB). I know both have s/w, hang, restart issues. So, I am totally confused while choosing my first smart phone. I can't go for Sony Ericsson bcos that partnership won't exist for future s/w updates and Motorola is not up to the mark in smart phones. Please suggest which one to choose among these.
I'm trying to connect to internet using packet data, I find it hard to connect at all, anyone got the way? please help.
