WEBHEAD, 01 Jun 2012Thanks. That answers my question well. Just tell me what is this OTA. I read about it few mont... moreOTA means over the air. Unlike updates that are done by plugging the phone to PC and downloading the update files through the PC, OTA update does the same through your phone itself. OTA is usually for minor updates that has small bug fixes or inbuilt app updates. For eg, update from GB 2.3.4 to ICS 4.0.3 was not OTA as it was a major update. But from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 OTA was possible due to it being a minor one. PC update through PC companion can do both minor and major update.
Note: Suppose you update from 2.3.4 to 4.0.4 , you still have to use PC. Cause without the main ICS files provided with the first major update (GB to 4.0.3), you can't do OTA update. But this doesn't mean that you have to update to 4.0.3 first and then only to 4.0.4...... Direct update from GB to ICS 4.0.4 is possible, but from PC only.
Hope this perfectly clears your doubts.....

@webhead, Bangalore: you can update to ICS 4.0.4 through pcc from gingerbread as update is made available in India. you can't get OTA update for gb to ics. hope I answered your query.
I just updated my phone to ics 4.0.4, update center on my phone is not telling me if there is an update available so i decided to use pc companion and there is ics 4.0.4 waiting for me to download.

I have a question. I am still having GB on my Neo V (Unrooted). Is it possible for me to update it directly to ICS 4.0.4 through PC Companion? I mean, can I skip the ICS 4.0.3 update? Residing in Bangalore, India.

1. battery backup doubled
2. very smooth now
3. many new features are added like new notification bar, simple setting menu and face unlock etc
4. new gmail app
everything is working fine. at any moment if you don't like ICS, you can goto Sony service center and downgrade it to gingerbread as you have warranty.
arunsurya, 31 May 2012Dear 100rabh .. Can u say wat r d changes ll be found after updating 4.04,, I got notification... more4.0.4 Updated
So this Update was for Better management ... let us see what it does
Ui (now more smooth )
Video recording is now better
Ram management is even better now
Less lag while playing back video's
Multitasking is little better now
Things still not fixed
At night video recording still takes 2-3seconds to record properly , the recording is still mono :|
Dont Keep activities option still not optimized.It still cause the home to relaunch everytime we go to home
Dailer stil takes 2-3sec to open , even though i dont have much phone contacts (so this is very bad :| )
No improvements in benchmark scores which means gaming experience is not that smooth
