Lets Rock N Roll folks! Is it worth upgrading to the latest incarnation of Android? Yup, Yes, Surely! Here’s the top 10 reasons why Ice Cream Sandwich is the tastiest serve from Google’s recipe yet!
1. New UI:
Honeycomb’s beautiful holographic tablet interface comes to smartphones, with a more appealing, less geektroid system font called Roboto.
2. Improved multi-tasking:
Android Ice Cream Sandwich gets Honeycomb’s useful, scrolling multi-tasking window manager.
3. Expandable widgets:
Android’s killer feature (compared to iOS, at least) just got bigger. Literally. You can now make widgets larger or smaller to show more info, rather than being locked to an arbitrary size. Well Apple, please Get-A-Life!
4. Support for more media
Built-in support for Matroska (MKV) videos. Booya! No more transcoding needed for your torrented vids.
5. Instant voice
Hit the button and start talking — Android 4 can translate your voice into text on the screen as you talk, not after a pregnant pause.
6. Panoramic camera
The camera app in Android has a panorama function built in — you can just sweep your handset across a scene to capture a wide angle shot.
7. Android beam
Put two Android 4 phones within 4cm of each other and they’ll use near field communication to securely exchange data such as contacts, web pages, etc.
8. Wi-Fi direct file sharing
Similar to Apple’s AirDrop feature in Mac OS X, Android devices will be able to send files to each other over Wi-Fi, without a router in between.
9. Faster web browser
10. Face unlock
Android 4 can use face recognition to unlock your phone — after a few seconds of delay. A PIN may still be quicker.
In the meantime, you can check out if your phone version is compatible for an upgrade to Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
