Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for Nexus S (GSM)

A couple days back Google announced they’d be releasing an update for their flagship phones, the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, but they were pretty vague on locations.

I was one of the (un)lucky few who received the Ice Cream Sandwhich update which took my Nexus S from 2.3.6 (Gingerbread) to 4.0.3 (ICS). I am happy I have the new ICS features but really disappointed with the poor performance on battery life and lack of recognition for numbers in my phone book! After all, what good is a phone if it doesn’t stay on, and when it is on, you cannot tell who is calling?

And so, here I am, eagerly awaiting the 4.0.4 update and wondering if it is even being rolled out in the UK?! If you’ve got a Nexus S and receive the over the air update please do leave a comment!

I am hoping the battery life will match the update Galaxy S II running 2.3.4 where light use gave over 1 day and a few hours of battery! I have never seen my nexus last for more than 20 odd hours even with little or no use.
