Engadget Review

Ice Cream Sandwich is the largest and most attractive Android update we've seen so far, with a fresh UI and a litany of new features.

Pros
  • Refreshed UI offers a modern feel
  • Improved keyboard and text input
  • Tons of additional features
Cons
  • Face Unlock is half-baked and gimmicky
  • Not very intuitive for first-time users
  • Poor Facebook integration
