I updated mine from Vodafone(PT) and it's a disappointment.
-It uses more 200MB of RAM than it used too.
-The swype keyboard "destroys" the battery, it used 49% of mine, in 7 hours, YES, 7 Hours without doing pretty much anything it the phone!
-The wi-fi antenna sometimes gets frozen, cannot tur it On or Off, you have to put it in flight mode and connect all the other antennas individually and then MAYBE your wi-fi antenna will get available.
-The UI...They introduced a BRAND NEW...."PHONE ICOOOOONNN" ! yeaaahhH! plus some little things like change the Recent apps look,
- Removed the "Running services" widget
- Plus ICS functionalities , like the lock screen shortcuts, were not considered.
- It Doesn't look like nothing new besides the settings menu and the new data usage feature, very good.
-GMAIL app and Youtube app changed also.
The balance between performance issues and new features or GUI improvement is not positive. This was not a good update to do.
As written on samsung facebook:
"Galaxy S2 ICS update, Disappointing, almost nothing new.
Improve the UI or I will move to the fruit market on mobiles
I think it's obvious that if you release a new FW version you have to deliver a new GUI, at least, and not omit any update.
The user MUST NOTICE that he did an upgrade, looks like this update it's just a effortless android version support.
Very disappointed with you. Already considering other brands and specially other O.S. ."
