Amaze is just an over clocked sensation that looks better

I'm sorry, but I don't think Amaze look better.

As a Sensation 4G owner, I'd rather have the Amaze. Larger screen, dedicated camera button, better benchmarks.

That being said, while I myself haven't yet used the free tethering, I do want ICS... hmmm

My bad, I was thinking of the GS2, which has the 4.5" screen. Amaze and Sensation are both 4.3". Thanks for catching it!

the Amaze's battery life is too bad and i think the Sensation looks kind of better too.

So I did the update, and now the phone acts even more drunkenly than before... Prettier UI for certain, but whenever trying to use the Play Store it reboots, so I can't update my apps.
Grrr.

it probably just needs time to settle. going from 2.3 to 4.0 is a HUGE upgrade and the kernel has completely changed. just give it time. same thing happened with my Razr. mine even got pretty hot after the upgrade.

Yesterday I tried update my i9100g to ICS Z. Yes my father gave it to me .
And kies is a complete mess fails to connect the phone on 3 different computer .
Just wish that the s2 have OTA update to ICS like sensation .

After that I gave it back to him .
He only know how to play some simple games and use some basic function anyway so he doesn't bother ICS or not

Just updated mine, I'd rather have ICS than something I rarely use.
4.0 on it is smooth as butter btw, the stock browser's being really laggy and weird but everything else works really well.

Try ics+ on the play store, its the stock browser plus nifty features, or now you can use chrome. it is not as fast scrolling but it is fast loading and always up to date

Chrome is better than the Sense 4 Browser for sure.

I downloaded the Chrome Beta right after updating it haha. I like itbut I watch a lot of flash. ICS+ is pretty nifty indeed, thanks for the suggestion. I've never liked the Sense browser, just wanted to see if maybe it'd gotten better after the update.....mehhhhh.

well luckily the Browser is stock on ICS for the Razr so i just switch back and forth between using Chrome and the stock Browser.

After spending a full day with it, it feels like a brand new phone. Lag is non exist ant as ICS a.d 3.6 fly through everything. Maybe I'm luck haha.
