Samsung started rolling out an update for its Galaxy S II handset today, finally bringing Android 4.0 to Samsung's flagship. In case you're not able to update yet, here's a little look at what's new in the move from 2.3 to 4.0.
To cut straight to the disappointment, not much has changed. Of all the new visual elements in Google's latest OS, only the multitasking menu has been included. Everything else – aside from a new lock screen – has been made to look as similar to the Android 2.3 TouchWiz interface as possible. Widgets can't be resized, there's no unified app and widget drawer, and no Roboto. Samsung has taken a colossal update and turned it into an iterative one, with barely a hint of Google's Holo theme retained.
