Samsung has promised that their hugely successful Galaxy S2 smartphone will be getting an official Ice Cream Sandwich ROM before the first quarter of the year is over, and with the leaked Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM being spotted recently, the good people over at Pocketnow decided to give the ROM a go, and recorded a video of it in action. So far, initial impressions have proved to be nothing but bouquets instead of brickbats, where the platform refresh is said to be extremely stable, fast and smooth – in addition to improving the TouchWiz user interface. Some say that the battery life has been improved as well, and that is always a welcome addition for any device. Some benchmark figures that ran include AnTuTu, Quadrant, LinPack and SmartBench that clocked 6257, 4225, 46.992/78.05 and 2517, respectively. I guess this can only mean one thing – there is no real reason to ditch your Galaxy S2 just yet in pursuit of a newer and better phone, considering how with Ice Cream Sandwich on the Galaxy S2, it can still chug along quite nicely without batting and eyelid.
