What ICS feature are you most looking forward to using?

With all the new features that Android 4.0 will be bringing to the table like:

face unlock

chrome browser

beam

additional control of apps

speech recognition

widget management

camera control

screen capture made easier

tablet-like interface

 

What feature(s) make(s) you long for ICS on your phone, or long for the Galaxy Nexus release?

 

I am looking forward to being able to see how much data different apps are using. And I think the face unlock will be pretty cool.

My wife has a Novo7 cheap Chinese 7" tablet that runs Android 4.0. I love it.

 

Everything about ICS is better. Its quite different from the Android 2.x series. But just enough similarity for most Android users to be able to adopt quickly without much hassles.

 

My favorite thing is the scrolling dock bar. So, not only can you scroll your screens left to right, but below that you can separately have more icons in your dockbar and scroll them left or right for up to 15 fast dockbar icons. Its great.

 

I'm looking forward to ICS on smartphones.

I have that in "GO Launcher" on my phone too. It is pretty handy because I don't like all the shortcuts clogging up my screens.

My son who is in the UK has the GN. When he came home over the holidays he showed his mother how she could multi-task with ICS. Since she still has her Palm Pre she wanted, no, demanded similar capabilities for her new phone. Thus, we are waiting for ICS to come out so she can choose a phone she likes. So far she likes the EpicTouch but she doesn't want a rooted phone (go figure?) so we will wait until the stock ROM comes out if Samsung ever gets around to it.

 

However, if the SGSll+ or GSlll comes out soon, who knows?

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
