I recently upgraded my Samsung Galaxy S2 to the latest version of Google’s new Android 4.0 operating system ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ and I must say, things have improved A LOT! There are many things that were missing from previous releases that we android users just took for granted, some features of which have been a staple in the iOS ecosystem for a while now but now that Android has these nailed down it is truely the killer OS out there at the moment in my opinion.
Many things that Android has done better compared with its competitors are things phone/tablet users use every day, rather what it’s competitors do which are questionably used as frequently.
A few of the new features include:
- Resizable Widgets
- New lock screen actions
- Quick responses for incoming calls
- Improved Text Imput
