Top 5 Android ICS [Ice Cream Sandwich] Features


Ice Cream Sandwich has come out, and it’s looking pretty delicious. As reported by PC Mag, here are few of the best features so far, for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Face recognition unlock:

Swiping fingers is so passé. Enter face unlock. With Android 4.0 you can now simply look at the phone and unlock it, well if it is yours. Cool feature to have as smartphones are slowly bridging the gap with laptops.

New UI:

Bored of the Gingerbread UI on your phone? Worry not, the user interface for Ice Cream Sandwich is touted to take the best from both worlds, tablets and smartphones, and that definitely will be a delicious treat. That is, if your phone can be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Watch out, iOS! Ice Cream Sandwich is coming

Speech recognition:

All those going ga-ga about Siri and the iPhone 4S can look to Google’s new and improved speech recognition. It’s touted to be more advanced in terms of functionality and we’re hoping it’s Google’s answer to Siri. As of now though, this feature lets users create e-mails, texts and other varied functions.

Better camera control:

With Android 4.0, the time period for clicking snaps has been considerably reduced so you won’t really miss that image shot again. Also, there’s an auto image rotator that will rotate pictures according to where your eye is looking.

Android beam:

This feature allows phones with NFC to share applications, maps, directions, videos, contacts, files and a lot more by tapping two Android 4.0 devices together.

So, that’s a brief rundown of the five cool features of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
