I have read that many people had problems with battery life after updating. I have been having fantastic battery life. I can work a 12 hour day with phone calls, texts, and lots of emailing and its still over 50%. This is the most dramatic transformation for me.
I do love many of the new features of ICS, even if I do not use them, like facial unlock. Being able to unlock directly into camera, phone or text is also nice, but I often instinctivly swipe to the right to unlock, even if I am going into text. I wish you could change those. I would have a direct unlock to mail or web browser, but no big deal. The big deal is the constant freezing.
I experience most of my locking during web browsing. I was so excited to get chrome, but it crashed on me constantly. I changed over to Dolphin as I heard good things. That crashes too. Even the standard browser has failed on me. Are other people having this problem too? I try and do the home-hold and swipe out extra running programs very often, but it has not helped me with the crashing. Is there crap-ware running which was pre-installed which is causing this problem? Is an update needed? Advice?
