What am I missing by still using a device with Android 2.2 instead of 4.0?
wstark 2 years ago
I haven't yet got my hands on Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0). My smartphone is a little less than a year old, and still running Froyo (2.2). I really don't have many complaints, even though my hardware is a little underpowered, it still works pretty smoothly and most, but by no means all, apps work fine. There is zero chance my phone will get ICS, so it would mean a new phone at some expense plus two more years of shackles. The expense was worth it to go from 2.1 to 2.2 for the speed increase alone. Is there anything (or things plural) that really makes ICS a must have?
