Samsung Epic 4G Touch ICS update problems reported
We are finally seeing more Android hardware being updated to the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and around the middle of last month owners of the Samsung Epic 4G Touch started to see the new software, but now there are reports of issues with the ICS update.
The guys over at GottaBe Mobile are reporting that they have been contacted by a number of readers that have been experiencing problems after installing the new operating system, and the reports first started to come in shortly after the original July 12th roll out.
It seems that the issues got so bad that the carrier Sprint temporarily halted the push out of the software, only to restart it earlier this week. It is still unclear though whether the temporary halt of the update has solved any of the issues being experienced by owners of the handset.
What is clear though is that the original Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for Sprint’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S2 has been causing some major headaches for a lot of users. One owner reported speaking to a Sprint representative who claimed that some owners of the handset had seen their handset lock, freeze, or become unable to receive any calls.
Other owners of the Samsung Epic 4G Touch have reported that since installing the ICS software they have been unable to read emails, and the handsets UI is more sluggish than before. There have also been reports from owners that the handsets battery has deteriorated since the update, which has become the norm recently with Android updates.
There have also been many users that have not seen any issues at all since installing Ice Cream Sandwich. Have you had any problems with the Android ICS update?
