Galaxy S III is an awesome phone. One of the things that impressed us during our hands-on was the user interface. Samsung's new TouchWiz UX is as impressive as ever, stable, and extremely smooth. While waiting for the phone to be released we now have an early taste for a few lucky Samsung owners. When S-Voice and the full ROM was leaked developers started work on a port, and today we have just that.
HTC One S is a hot phone, but for those rocking the HTC EVO 3D you can now get a stable version of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and the latest Sense UI 4.0 along with Beats audio integration for your 3D. This was first released back in March as a alpha build and wasn't very stable, but today its earned new life and is coming along great.
Kies, the company's desktop syncing and software flashing app. Kies keeps a database of all current Samsung Android devices, and you'll never guess what's just popped into it. Or maybe you will, since leaks seem to falling from the sky on this one: the Galaxy S III. Or more appropriately, the Galaxy S3, since that's what the phone is labelled in the application.
Galaxy Nexus directly from the Google Play Store for $399 unlocked. In a Google Groups post, a representative stated that while the hardware is identical to the GSM model that's been available overseas for almost six months, the software gets one important revision: Google Wallet support is added natively. Google Wallet is still only available in the United States.
showed you some images of what we were hearing was the new CyanogenMod mascot to replace the old Andy bugdroid. Apparently those designs were only a few of many and now we have the final verdict. The image below is one of two new images to represent CyanogenMod as a brand, and a mature OS. Meet Cid.
CyanogenMod is MIUI, and today we have good news regarding their development of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and the Galaxy Nexus. MIUI has been available for multiple devices for a long time and we've seen a few hacked or ported ROM's for the Galaxy Nexus but now the official MIUI ICS for "toro" the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is available in all its glory.
Ice Cream Sandwich modders have had a hard time building fully operational and smooth ROM's with Android 4.0 ICS. Over the weekend Qualcomm made this entire process much easier for smartphones running their platform.
posted to XDA Developers, and it looks like it's an official Samsung release (complete with TouchWiz). The ROM was spotted on a Chinese forum. Don't boot up your recoveries just yet, Note users: this software only works with the I9220 model number, and it's localized for the Chinese market. The standard international GSM version, and presumably AT&T's version set to go on sale on Sunday, are not supported. Flashing to these devices may brick them.
DROID RAZR, and only for the GSM RAZR worldwide but it's a good sign indeed. With Moto's Blur UI barely noticeable I'm a little excited I must admit.
HTC Hero and Verizon's very first Motorola DROID are quite outdated, but should they be forgotten? Apparently, some developers think not. The OG Droid has recently received an update to its previous Andorid 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) ROM release that seems to have fixed quite a bit of bugs. From the video the UI doesn't lag as much either.
