    So far I'm no too impressed with it. For some reason now the phone won't sync contacts with my Motorola Roadster.

    Secondly the samsung power widget is huge and there's no way to re size it. Plus you can't drop a icon on another to create a folder?

    Also it seems that charging is taking for ever.

    Color me unimpressed so far.

    Tested the official ICS release. Didn't like it

    Decided to root and flash AOKP. Love it to death

    I'm not able to walk away from the purity of ICS because it's amazing...

    I'm done with touchwiz and all of the bloatware. Except for the myAT&T app

    Did you downgrade back to 2.3.4?
    If so, how did you did it?

    My phone seems to be extra warm when I charge it. And like another person said, charging takes forever. One thing that totally annoys me is the Roboto font. I changed the font in the setting to something I downloaded, but I always see this Roboto here and there. My keyboard, all my browsers, some parts of my Go Launcher theme. Any ideas how to fix that?

    I don't know if this is a part of the normal ICS or something Samsung has done. The icons in the notification bar are a lot larger then they where on GB and they are also all white now for incoming notifications. The normal signal strength, battery icons are the same colors as GB but also larger. Is there anyway to change this?

    Diggin it so far. I had ICS on my previous SG2 that I rooted and "lost", had insurance and replaced the brick. Very smooth so far however the face lock is unreliable and doesn't always work or show up. Only shows the wipe option.

    I have no real complaints with the new ICS I'm using the apex launcher and everything is nice and smooth. Over the course of the last couple of days I've noticed a very nice improvement in battery life so I will stay where I'm at with ICS official release for now.

    Downloaded last night. Disappointed to see it basically reset all screens, and add back all the bloatware. I had to spend 30 minutes this morning deleting what bloatware that I could and re-configuring all of my icons.

    Pros: For the most part, I'm enjoying the new look of most apps. Whether it is because it is simply something new or not, I don't know.

    Cons: Battery drained over the course of the day with little use. Easily made it through the day with 2.3.6. Doesn't look like that'll happen with ICS, which is disappointing.

    Flashing ROMs always causes a lot of battery drain, as does the system configuring itself over the next couple of days. Wait several days, maybe even a week if you have the patience, and you will probably see a noticeable improvement in battery life.

    Anyone figure out how to get their text notifications to work? My sound files won't play when I receive messages, so i'm constantly checking and therefore draining my battery..

    Use go SMS. Then you can use your own sounds. I still use my regular SMS but I have go installed and it allows me to usr y downloaded sounds from zedge

    Well, I have custom sounds on my SD card; but the notifications just don't play.
    I shouldn't NEED an app to make things work.

    That app didn't even fix the sound issue. I'm just going to exchange my GS2 at a local store and not upgrade to ICS no matter how much I like it.
    Forget AT&T, cannot wait to get rid of them.

    I have been enjoying it greatly, took me a little while to get used to the updated interface, but I have no problems at all, text notifications work fine, syncs fine and I have not noticed any lag. Battery life is about the same as 2.3.6 for now, but as cmerlyn noted, it takes awhile to let the system settle in and adjust itself.

    3 full battery charges should get the battery gage calibrated to see.
