Ice Cream Sandwich
Samsung Galaxy S III features include a 4.8" HD Super AMOLED Display, 1.5 Ghz Dual-Core Processor, 2GB Ram, S-Voice (Samsung's answer to Apple's Siri), Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is expected soon) and an 8MP Camera.
For now, I'm leaving my S III 32GB pre-order intact; TouchWiz be damned. That could change over the weekend to Nexus. I want Jelly Bean!
A guide for installing Android Ice Cream Sandwich on your unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100) in under 30 minutes.
Google Voice is a must-have app, and now it's even better. If you're thinking of upgrading to ICS, you just gone one more non-Roboto reason to do so asap
Android 5 is rumored for Q3. Just as ICS finally lands on devices by Samsung, HTC, Motorola and others -- boom! -- the upgrade wait begins anew. Oh, the irony.
Here are some of the hottest Androids that we should see land on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and/or T-Mobile over the next few months.
The Galaxy S II runs ICS smoothly. In fact, brilliantly well. Actions are fast. In my hands-on testing I experienced no lag, stutter or issues that would want me to return to Gingerbread.
ICS was supposed to be the Android for the mainstream. For those that would otherwise run to a white iPhone 4S (with pink, jewel encrusted sleeve). But, then something happened: nothing.
Recently in our tests of the side-by-side with the Galaxy Nexus, we found that the S II held its own, and was able to open apps, browse, and generally function as fast as, and sometimes even faster then the newer model - specs be damned!
