Don’t you just hate it when contracted Samsung Galaxy S II users show you that they have the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich? Don’t you find it unfair that you paid the same price and have the same device yet you have to put up with the old Android version? Don’t you feel left out when everybody in town are talking about the Ice Cream Sandwich when you are back to old Gingerbread and worse, Froyo? Well, now is the time to celebrate. If you have an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II and you live in the UK then now is the time to get an ICS update on your unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II phone.
Downloading the latest version of Android is easy. All you need to do is get your USB cable out and start Kies on your phone. Samsung has already sent the update to their desktop software. If you don’t have Kies, then now would be the best time to download it. Though you should have that already for that app will give you access to a wide variety of applications. From there, you just need to check the drivers and then upgrade your ROM. Just click ‘firmware upgrade‘ and it’s done. Congratulations. You’ll get the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on your phone in a matter of minutes.
You’ll get much luck if you have signed up for certain carriers like Vodafone. You may have tried getting the update before but you simply cannot compare with your contracted counterparts. It is good to know that you have gotten the update before your American friends. People from the US are yet to see an Android 4.0 update for the Galaxy S II along with Skyrocket LTE.
But I don’t want to burst your bubble. The update is not really that great. If you tried getting the update, then you’ll find that only a few changes will happen. Aside from a slight improvement in the Touchwiz technology, there are also new features when it comes to Face unlock, multitasking interface and data limit tracking. You will also have the option to disable your other apps.
Do you have an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II? Then the wait is over. While you will not get the Ice Cream Sandwich directly to your phone, you can still get it from the updates from your local carriers like T-Mobile and Orange. Get it right now.
