Why Ice Cream is so much better than Gingerbread

Recommended Posts

So, everyone wonders why android 4.0 is such a vast improvement over 2.3 gingerbread. Well, ill run everyone through why i think it is better.

 

Performance:

Gingerbread is and can be pretty snappy on some devices, but with gingerbread being a much larger operating system, more RAM and disk space is needed to store all the features and files that are in the operating system, which drastically slows down the execution of programs, as well as hindering the speeds of the device, depending on the hardware. Ice cream is a bit smaller in size for devices, which allows more memory to be available to the system, as well as allowing more RAM, and better RAM management for the said device.

 

Productivity:

 

Ice cream is just more functional than gingerbread is. With speed enhancements, GPU Acceleration, and better battery optimizations, Ice cream sandwitch is just a much more flavorful topping to the devices that are already sweet!

 

I will finish the rest of this thread later, my time is limited at the moment. For now, comment away! :D

My Ice Cream melted into a Jelly Bean. But yes ICS is way better than GB. Man I remember sitting on the Epic waiting for leaks of some Gingerbread. We had so much fun with that phone.

I'm curious to know where you got an extended battery for your Viper?

If ICS has a smaller footprint than GB, why are manufacturers using footprint as an excuse not to upgrade? :(

Cause they are too lazy to make consumers happy. It's pure corporate greed.

Anyways, in further detail, i will finish my thread now, since i have the time lol. Continuing on with productivity:\

 

Besides ice cream being much more speed optimized, there are a slew of new features that 4.0 brings to the mobile world. Some of those features include:

 

* Faster GPU Rendering (One of my favorite features)

*Face Unlock(Another one of my favorites, lol)

*Better RAM Management

*Improved camera application, and with some phones that are CAPABLE of shooting 1080p video, but are not able to due to software restrictions, ice cream enables phones with that capability to harness it, which ill never understand why manufactures limit the possabilities of their devices at times.

*Better battery management(Processors take less power, GPU)

And many more features that would probably take me all day to type, as my typing speed is not what you would call "fast" lol

Something else i like.. The names that google codenames their software with. Some of my friends look at me like im insane when i tell them my viper got ice cream sandwitch.. they just gave me a blank, but confused expression. It got even worse when i mentioned jelly bean. Another one of my friends looked around and said "Jellybeans?? Where, i want some!". Um, yeah, this is why i will never say any of that out loud again lol

Now you can get 2 for 11.99, check it out.

 

If I keep my phone, or get another Viper for replacement, then I will spring for a bigger battery.

Sounds a lot better than the gingerbread flavored jelly bean I had...

After FINALLY moving from Froyo to Gingerbread on my last international (CDMA/GSM) phone, two months later I'm on a new international device running ICS. That means I pretty much went from Froyo to ICS with only a quick stop at GB. Quite a shock to the system.

 

I've learned to live with most of the changes brought on by ICS, but considering just how battery sucking a badly behaved app can be, I still miss being able to put an app on a list to be KILLED two minutes after the screen goes dark.

 

I thoroughly dislike my phone squawking at me early afternoon, letting me know it's at 10% battery and going into survival mode. :(

 

I guess I need to look for the "app for that" so I will KNOW that apps I'm not using are dead, dead, dead. >_>

At least one version of Android should be called Creampie. Enough said.

 

:P

....and just imagine the potential crossover marketing opportunities! :o

Indeed. Vivid Entertainment could get its own channel on Google's YouTube. And in conjunction with Creampie, Trojan Condoms could run an "ironic" marketing campaign.

Wow, that's not a bad deal at all! I probably could of got two batteries if I saw that lol. But I am still grateful I got the battery that I have now. I don't know if it was the phone, but the stock battery drained unnecessarily, even with data turned off.

Well, here's the benifits. Ice cream is good on a hot day, it melts, but its sweet either way. Gingerbread isn't too refreshing unless its served on the holidays, and I never really liked the taste of gingerbread... too gingery for me XD well, ill just stick with my ice cream! :D

Your factory battery must be defective. Mine had that problem too. Did your phone ever overheat really bad?

One thing I miss from Gingerbread is the ability to turn off background data! I used to get nearly 3-5 days of battery life from my old Epic 4G Touch, but once it got its ICS update, my battery suffered greatly. I know you can turn off sync, but I'd still have to recharge nightly when before I didn't.

You can disable background data in ICS/JB too.

You must enable a data limit, set it high if you want. Then select each application and disable background data for each application you want to.

Yes, it did tend to overheat with the stock battery. I've recorded temperatures up to 135 degrees on this phone and I'm sure from what I know, that isn't a very safe operating temperature lol

No, its not safe. My worst was 130 at the end of August. Now if it gets over 104, I put the phone in front of an air vent to cool it off. But one thing i have noticed is that since the ICS upgrade, my phone does better on its own of staying cooler longer, so that's a plus.

      Hello all,

      I have been visiting S4GRU for quite some time, and one of the most common issues I see popping up is confusion from users--especially when they first get 4G LTE devices and/or LTE service--regarding their signal strengths. For some reason, the signal bars on many devices do not display what most users expect them to display. It seems strange that we have to enter special dialer codes just to see what our LTE signal is!

      With that in mind, I started creating an Android app from scratch. I had never created an app before, so it took a few months before it was ready for the public, but its time has come. Robert and a few others have been beta testing it for me since October, and I recently released it onto Google Play. Robert gave me the go-ahead to give it a mention here on S4GRU, so here goes..

      It's called SignalCheck, and it is available on Google Play here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Blue+Line+Computing
       
      The "Lite" version is free; the "Pro" version has a small one-time fee but includes a bunch of extras, including signal bars in the notification area, a widget, the ability to alert a user when they pick up an LTE or 800 SMR signal, one-button instant connection reset, the street address of the connected 1X site, and menu shortcuts to some screens that are usually only accessible with dialer codes. I intend to offer S4GRU Premier Sponsors special benefits in the near future, as soon as I figure out a feasible way to do that.

      This is the first app I have ever developed, so I'd appreciate any and all feedback, both positive and negative. I have been trying to educate myself as much as possible regarding cellular technologies, as I didn't know much before I started this project. My goal is to make this app as accurate and useful as possible for all the "nerds" on here.. myself included!

      I intend to continue squashing bugs as they are reported, and adding features as they are requested. As I learn more about Android programming and cellular technology, I'll improve things. Please let me know what you would like to see, and I'll do what I can.
       
      My "Beta Crew" helps test out the app before public updates are pushed out. Membership is by invite only but anyone is welcome to join in our discussions or get a sneak peek at what is going on (see thread here).

      Here are some screen shots from a previous version.. there have been tweaks since this release, but this is basically what you get:

      With the FCC and Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to this new unlocking policy. How does this effect sprint phones such as the IPhone. I have heard that Sprint can unlock your phone but you can not take it to other carriers such as Verizon and the IPhone can only be used overseas.  (Correct me if I am wrong). I am glad that this has finally happened. But when it comes to Sprint how would this work?
