Well... where do i start... I'll be honest, i went on and on about this update for about 2 months since i first heard that it was coming, they made such a fuss as i kept seeing it all posted over youtube and all of the phone news sites raving about how brilliant it was, so when i could finally update my phone i couldnt wait to do it!...... Now i miss the gingerbread, Oh how i took it for granted!
firstly the new unlock system, whoever designed that rubbish obviously doesnt have 1) pockets and 2) any kids! My 9 month old daughter can easily unlock and call whoever she desires, Epscially when it comes to the second point.
Secondly the tap and speak system or 'drive mode' keeps popping up on the screen, giving my 9 month old the random options to call people off of my call list, you dont even have to say the persons name right as we found out when she just said 'dada' and it decided to call one of my friends!
Thirdly, when i charge my phone, it states that the voltage is too high going to the phone even though im using the samsung charger that came with the phone and the only way to get rid of the annoying pop up that reminds you every 5 minutes is to hope that rebooting your phone does the trick, if not you will have a constant reminder that the voltage was too high! and it will sometimes fail to even charge your phone because of it.
fouth, The default text language, no matter how many times i select normal text language it keeps asking me, and following that you had wish on your lucky stars that you dont want to search something! because unless you stand there for 20 minutes begging for it to search something new your stuck with old searches you have done, as the keyboard doesnt work unless you load then exit the programme several times hoping to fool the system.
Fithly, It breaths google down your throat, along with the ics update also came alot of unwanted apps on my phone, so after a long update you have to sit there and remove a load afterwards, along with removing widgets that i actually liked, and wont allow me to restore them onto the new update.
Im now stuck with a phone that i used to like, which i now have to charge twice or three times a day if i want to play any of the apps it will allow me to play, along with having to reboot it at least 4 times, no wonder they put a restart button on it! This phone now gets more attention than my 9 month old daughter! Now looking into trying to get my beloved Gingerbread back! Or failing that selling it and going to the iphone 4s!!
