Galaxy S II with ICS and Android 2.3 Compared

Posted:  March 29, 2012   By:    27 comments   


While Galaxy S II owners here in Malaysia wait anxiously for the Android 4.0 update to be available, let’s take a look at the enhancements the new firmware will bring to the world’s most popular Android smartphone. Here’s a side-by-side comparison video of the Galaxy S II running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

There are quite a number of enhancements making tasks like switching off apps and managing browser tabs much simpler and faster. If you’re more of the manual reading type, you can check out the Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich Guide for Consumers.

The pretty nifty guide talks about everything from how to get the ICS update for your Galaxy S II to almost all of the changes the update brings. It’s really useful and you can download the PDF here.

We’re still wondering if ICS for the Galaxy S II has arrived in Malaysia. If you’ve gotten your update do let us know. We’ll be more than happy to share it with the rest. Thanks!

Ramon

Yeah, me too. same firmware as leman (I9100XXLPG). browsing is a lot faster, and battery usage is slightly better than Gingerbread. nevertheless, it is not as "pure" ICS as in Galaxy Nexus. Hope that Samsung can provide another update with few more features..

Jee Yann

Wait. Are you guys from Malaysia? Is the official S2 ICS update available here already??

    leman

    It is official s2 ICS but for different region. Europe version i think. Malaysia ICS update not available yet, but the update should be available very soon.

Dear Fellow SGS2 Users,

Samsung Malaysia has made available the OFFICIAL ICS UPDATE already, BUT you got to BRING IN your set to SAMSUNG SERVICE CENTRE for the update, it is NOT available in KIES for some technical reason.

To make it much clearer there NO update available yet for 'G' version.

The update is great……… Have fun….. SGS-2 is a great great phone…

I have managed to upgrade via Kies to ICS 4.0.3 DXLP6. So far so good. The face recognition security works, but other than that nothing really impressive.

Just updated my S2 2 days ago via OTA to ICS (4.0.3). Looks great after the update only the ram gone down to 687M, hopefully it won’t affect the S2 performance.

I've been using official Msia ICS 4.0.3 to the Germany 4.0.4 update for i9100g.
Found issue regarding random signal loss during phone sleep.

And it will generate a log file in datalog directory =
