Many troublesome issues after updating to ICS 4.0.3
I share the feeling of disppointment after upgrading to ICS (no rooting or other short cuts, just ordinary update via WiFi when ICS was made available to me).
At first the battery was drained in three hours. However this was solved after doing a factory reset. I highly recommend everyone to do a reset before updating!
But still after factory reset I exprience annoying issuses. Some of them are related to different third party apps (all from Google Play, though), which I assume is because the apps aren't upgraded to be compatible with ICS?
The main disappointment relates to the fact tha my phone is slower rather tha faster after the upgrade, and even custom installed apps like calendar doesn't work properly. Amongst others both the preinstalled calendar app as well as the Calendar Pad Pro chrashes when I try to establish a simple appointment. This is malfunctioning of core functions of a smart phone which one should expect was tested thoroughly before launching.
All four in my family has this phone, but due to the issues after updating three of them, my daughters has put their updated Samsungs in a drawer and started using their old Iphone 3GS instead! I'm tempted to get my old HTC Desire back in business, but will not give in quite yet - hoping that the software issues in 4.0.3 soon will be fixed.
