The upgrade is now available via Kies. Has anyone made the move ? Observations ?
I upgraded yesterday. no problems works great. a few small changes from gingerbread to get acustomed to.
Move was made... And meh. Kies was crashing on windows7 only after accepting to do the upgrade, had to use xp.
s2 is a little more zippy. Touchwiz is still the same touchwiz so ... Most things hasnt change too much.
Facial recognition is pretty cool, and surprizingly fast. Though google states that it is minimal security. Need to find someone that looks similar to see how rugged it is.
I like the updated gmail app, cool features. Swipe between messages.
Not a power user so not too sure if i am missing any other big changes. probably lots behind the scenes. Probably move to cm9 soon if touchwiz doesn't get updated. Wish the gallery got an update.
Would be interested in battery life ?
I upgraded, two days ago... my battery life is a bit better... at least just as good as GB but i think a bit better
Wow,i was just about to give up and use the developers version.Glad i waited.Now i have to flash back to stock then see if Kies will work.:afraid:
Mine was just stock as when i picked it up from Bell, upgraded via Kies, i didn't have
any problems, but make sure you back up any important data, just incase. All my
apps were still there, but in applications only. If you have many apps and want to
put your apps back as before, take some screen shots before upgrading so you don't
have to remember which app went where on your home screen
Battery life is definitely much better for me !
When you say "stock", is that like a factory reset ?
Sorry, I mean the firmware that came with it. I didn't do
any other gingerbread upgrading or rooting.
