Adjustable system-wide font size is welcomed (as the standard layout has a tiny font, most likely optimised for the high-res devices), as is native mouse/trackpad support (for tablets). The browser tab management system and extra features brought over from Honeycomb are definitely worth a mention. For beginners, a more logical tutorial on the homescreen welcomes you, and much easier to use voice and keyboard inputs. For the geeks, system-wide 2D hardware acceleration, device-encryption, full device backups, ability to overlay CPU usage, process display, detailed battery stats, adjustable animation scales, visual touch points and trails are all within reach. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the Face Unlock feature to activate, the front camera on the I9000 has a messed up aspect ratio in this port.
I’ve gone back to CM7 (2.3.7) till the ICS port is more refined, as there are still some minor issues with managing storage settings and the camera, as well as MMS. All in time though, a very impressive effort so far.
