Following the previous leaked builds of ICS for the Samsung Galaxy S II, the latest official build has been put up online by the folks over at SamMobile. These are the same guys who previously leaked the official builds, which were alpha products. This latest build, though, is in beta and stable enough to be your daily driver. The new build number is I9100XXLPB, and was updated on January 29th. Here’s what’s been updated in the newest build:
Interface: Kind of 3D effect when scrolling.
Battery: Lots better than early ones.
Faster: Feels the same as LP6
Touch: Same as LP6.
Overall: Better score in our eyes than LP6 .
Facelock: Same as LP6 working fine.
Task: Same as version LP6.
