From my experience, my upgrade to ICS 4.0.3 has been a disaster. The phone itself is barely useable which is a shame because it truely is a brilliant phone. Here just a few of the issues that I have came by.
>>The screen itself will be discoloured and certainly does not look like a Super Amoled. Hard reset is always needed to rectify,
>>Battery life is atrocious. Decreases very quickly with very minimal use. At one point my battery reading said 34% remaining.. I took the battery out and put it back in and it reduced to 12%!! Massive massive drop.
>>The music player will very frequently disregard my EQ (Rock + Music Clarity) and switch it off.. it also sounds like a scratched cd..music jumps and scratches which leads to yet again, another hard reset.
I done the upgrade correctly, factory reset before and after and yet these errors still occur. Im seriously thinking about rooting my phone but Im afraid it may brick on me :/ Perhaps I will try another reset tonight and if it still happens... Looks like I will be forced to root it.
I cant belive all the effort we as consumers have to do to get our phones to function correctly. Worst thing too is that our ICS isnt Vanilla, so we are missing alot of features. Samsung really need to take note and pull the finger out..seriosly considering (And I hate saying this) going back to Apple because I have never had a problem with their phones malfunctioning
thanks :) but what i mean is when you take it for a 12month installment. in davao, it's 27k when you go for 12months installment

Anonymous, 08 Jun 2012Internet explorer has stopped working after upgrade to ICS. Any suggestion?If any one have problem with internet browser try this...It worked for me...
Go to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Find the browser>Open It and clear all the cache... I think It works for all
And anyone who have a problem with Samsung Galaxy S2 After upgrading To Ics Make a backup of ur data and click this in dialing pad...
Backup all the data as this erases your phone memory only But not Your Sim Card And SD Card.While doing this don't unmount your SD card
