    So ICS for SG2 is out and i just installed on mine using Kies after some fighting (mostly because im Linux user and my Windows is junkyard)

    First thing you notice is fact that Galaxy Note unlock screen and use roboto as a font, also status bar seems to be more ics-ish but it still use old colors, it decently works a lot smoother then in 2.3.5.
    There also swipe functions from ICS on notifications, and also in contacts, speaking of contact they look like ICS and Samsung hybrid shere similar features. Touchwiz it self does not look much changed, there no widget previews like in ICS also lacking widgets and live wallpaper from ICS.

    Settings also look like ICS/samsung hybrid, but got all the goddies from ICS, including hell lot of debug functions for developer which might be useful for me

    I notice also something interesting, It seems old lower API level apps use Samsung skin (but with roboto font), but ICS apps use default ICS, or maybe its just duplication of classes for backward compatibility (older apps use older classes)

    Still need to test out lot of things, overall it works faster and nicer, but on other hand it looks like ICS/Samsung hybrid mutant which makes unconsistnt feel to UI

    Screen shot trick works on SG2 ICS so here few

    Old text popup menu got replaced with original ICS one

    All menu button options looksl iek this now:

    I have to admit that TouchWiz still looks cartoony in ICS. I have had a Captivate and an Infuse both with Touchwiz. But after a couple of months with the Galaxy Nexus and stock ICS, I think it's all anyone needs. I don't think Touchwiz adds anything to ICS at all. It's a shame that none of the manufacturers offer an "off" button or uninstall to give the users an option to run stock ICS without having to root and install 3rd party ROMs.

    Thanks for sharing these screenshots!
