I can't offer an opinion about the update, because, well, the phone was up for less than five minutes before the update...
But I DO like the phone so far !
I was underwhelmed at first to the point of depressed that other users were reporting issues of "Deep-Sleeping" apps and not multi-tasking at all.
I'm glad to say that my opinion has improved over time and its performance has been quite good!
I also think that once I got to understanding some tweaks I could do in ICS, I was able to discover some improvements, too, such as......
- ICS lets you disable System & Verizon bloat apps "bundled" in the phone. Go to Settings...Apps...All and then select each app you wish to disable.
- I killed most of the extra Verizon apps. This way you not only don't have to bother with them, it hides them and prevents any that can accidentially start and they may continue to run in the background. (example: Why even have VZ Navigator if you use Google Maps?)
- I disabled "Sense for Facebook" - Facebook seems to work much better without it. There is also a "Sense for Twitter" which I killed as well.
- I use "MailDroid" for my email so I disabled the stock email app.
NOTE: None of the above saves you memory space... it just disables and hides them.
Overall, I am much happier with my Dinc4G now than I was a few months ago!
