Samsung Galaxy S II gets ICS

The Samsung Galaxy S II also know as the SGSII has been receiving world-wide updates of the latest commercial Android release – Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Samsung Galaxy S II has definitely been the most popular Samsung mobile device to be released so far. The mass mobile producer was just announced as outselling Nokia in the first quater of 2012 by a whopping 10 million units. Their range of Galaxy handsets extends much further than just the Galaxy S II, they have low-end, medium and high-end Galaxy devices and they also stock many 4G variants of the the same 3G handsets.

ICS runs fairly smoothly on the Galaxy S II with a few small bugs which should be ironed out hopefully in smaller updates for each network.
