The long wait is finally over as Google released the Official Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich OTA update for Google Nexus S (GSM version) in the Philippines.
After nearly 4 months since Google stopped the ICS OTA update for Nexus S due to reported bugs and instability, Google has resumed the roll-out of their latest OS last week. I updated mine last week but gave myself some time to check if there are some things that are different from the manual update that Iâ€™ve done previously.
Note: This only goes to show that even if you manually upgraded your Nexus S to ICS by following our walkthrough (or any other method for that matter), youâ€™d still be able to get the official OTA ICS update on your phone after following our instructions on how to revert it back to Gingerbread.
There’s not much of a difference in this official update than the manual one which is 4.0.3. Some of the things that I noticed are the UI is smoother and snappier, screen orientation is more fluid and there’s lesser app force close. Battery life has improved a bit which is due to a much lower battery consumption of the OS.
