T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II Can Now Update to Android 4.0
T-Mobile has provided its Samsung Galaxy S II owners with the option of downloading and installing Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. The Galaxy S II shipped with Android 2.3 Gingerbread in 2011. The update will only be available via Samsung's Kies software, and cannot be downloaded over the air. T-Mobile warned that the update will wipe the home screen layout. Android 4.0 brings a significant number of new features to the Galaxy S II, and revises the appearance and behavior of the user interface.
T-Mobile scores the best version of the Samsung Galaxy S II with its large display, faster processor, and zippier wireless data radio. But those aren't the only noteworthy features of this superlative smartphone.
