My chief complaint about the new “Ice Cream Sandwich” Android 4.0 OS that recently installed itself on my phone is that it’s extremely easy to stack icons for apps on top of one another, and rather difficult to subsequently separate them.
…Oh, and the need to swipe my finger just so to answer an incoming phone call. Aside from that, it’s great. I mean, why would I want to answer phone calls with my phone. That’s not what phones are for anymore.
…Oh, and it chews up my phone’s battery about twice as fast as the old OS, which seemed to work just fine. I used to get 36 to 48 hours at a charge, now I’m down to 12-18.
…And the install seemed to wipe out all my custom ringtones. So let’s see:
- Icons stack too easily
- Icons don’t unstack easily at all
- Awkward to answer phone calls
- Wiped out old ringtones
- Battery hog
Other than that, yeah, Ice Cream Sandwich is really cool. Totally worth the half hour it took to download and install. You’re gonna love it.
