There was quite a debate regarding Sony’s Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Xperia 2011 line-up, especially that the manufacturer initially told its customers that the 2011 phones pack 512MB of RAM and a slower processor, specs below those “recommended” to run Ice Cream Sandwich.
In a recent blog post, Sony goes on about the differences between Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich, trying to get its customers informed. “We are actually proud to say that our Gingerbread software is very stable and has great performance, so it’s not a bad idea to stay on this release. Ice Cream Sandwich is more intensive, for example in terms of resource usage”.
However, on the opposite side, Sony acknowledges that ICS has a better and more refined user interface. If you have a Sony device from the Xperia 2011 line-up, hit up the source link to find out more technical details about what the manufacturer’s team has managed to achieve with the updates. They say that the “above mentioned “challenges” have already been addressed by our SW engineering teams”.
