It is snappier and noticeably so.

My big reason for wanting it was to get Chrome. I use that browser on my work and home laptops and wanted the sync'd bookmarks (it also shows you the browsing history of the other devices, which is a great feature) As well, I had been using Dolphin which was getting incredibly and painfully slow in getting pages loaded. Chrome is a huge improvement. Only thing is, I liked the access to Bookmarks that Dolphin had and find Chrome clunky and very much an early version with fewer refinements. As well the Settings section of Chrome crashes the browser, it's a known issue that Google is supposed to have a fix for in September.

Other then that, ICS is slick. Battery life is the same, about 12 hrs with WiFi enabled and moderate usage. And I can do a complete device backup in Kies, which is useful.
