New Galaxy S II Android 4.0 ROM surfaces with battery life improvements

0. phoneArena 03 Feb 2012, 07:44 posted on

The update is dated January 29, so it's fairly fresh from the oven, and the best improvement over the previous ICS leaks for the Galaxy S II is the battery life, which has apparently increased significantly...

Or may be just give users option to turn TW launcher off and use native ICS launcher...that would be awesome :)

Aren't they meant to use the holo launcher in ICS or they won't get google apps? Looks like the same old Touchwiz 4, oh wait it is the SAME. I can't get excited by that OLD skin

If this is the final update for the Galaxy S II and I'm assuming something identical for the Note as well, what will the Galaxy S III look like with ICS :/

Love Touchwiz. It actually makes Android usable.

In ICS you'll find TW limiting...instead of usable ;)

If Samsung can trick you that easily, I'm sure the robots at Cupertino have something to sell you...

I've tried this romon my Samsung galaxy s 2 I9100 and it is very stable, very fast too. But there are lots of ROMs with stock ICS for the galaxy s 2.

It is impossible that this is the new 4.0 interface, unless google doesnt care bout the android market

looking forward to the official release soon. I updated my phone to remove carrier iq and the update is awful. no more scrolling background, some good live wallpapers replaced with two hideous ones, battery life drains so much faster, and not satisfied.
