Hi. I'm thanking Col for your post about the Android upgrade from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 on Gal S II with Virgin Australia. I did the upgrade last night, too. It took me 3 attempts using Kies, but it worked in the end. I haven't noticed a lot of improvements yet, but I expect I will. I have had no glitches since upgrading. It would be good if Kies told you what Android version you would be upgrading to, rather than just giving a long meaningless firmware code.

Hi Andrew,

No problems at all mate. I agree it would be nice to know what the upgrade was actually called before it happening, I couldn't find any info on it when I was debating doing it so was happy to help someone trying to find the info about the same thing. Hope it all goes well for you.

I have noticed a couple of things since I did the upgrade.
1. Samsung re-installed Navigon (I deleted it prior to this) and now you can't even uninstall it from the application list. I may just delete the folders because I don't use it.

2. All apps seem to run smoother.

3. Only 1 app I had to uninstall called "Who called me". The phone would repeatedly be unresponsive and finally I'd get a popup about the app not responding, so I just uninstalled it. Other than that all other apps working.

4. The dialer includes a contacts button and the contacts includes a dialer button so you can now switch between them like you could with the old 2.3.6.

If you want to take the plunge and install a launcher, like I've said previously, I highly recommend the Apex Launcher. I'm not big into recommending too many apps, but that one really makes your phone use ICS as it should.

Am replying to Col's helpful comments. Col, I hadn't noticed that Navigon had changed after the upgrade from ICS 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 The new Navigon version seems a bit better. When I first got the phone with the free Navigon on it, I assumed that the Navigon would be fairly hopeless. However, I've been very pleasantly surprised. It works well for me, and the only thing I would like added to it would be speed I am travelling.
Thanks too for the tip about Apex launcher. I'll give it a try.
I haven't noticed an improvement in the speed at which screen rotates following the above update, sadly.
One other change I noted after the above upgrade was that Play Movies app was added to my apps. I don't want or need it, but just haven't been able to remove it. It looks like a Google app.
