Are you happy with the Android 4.0 ICS Xperia upgrade?

Now that the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is rolling out to the entire 2011 Xperia line-up and the Xperia S, we thought it would be a good time to ask for impressions. We understand that there are still many of you waiting for the green light on your SI number to be updated, but there are also many who have now updated either through official or unofficial (i.e. Flashtool) means.

As we reported earlier, NTT DoCoMo decided to shelve the ICS update that was due to land on four 2011 Xperia models. They cited memory and performance issues related to a lack of RAM. Of course, Sony Mobile themselves previously told people to consider whether they really need the ICS update over a very stable Gingerbread firmware build. But is there any truth in this? We want to hear some real-world examples of how people have fared with the ICS update.

If you’ve not had the chance yet, you can read our thoughts on the Sony Xperia S ICS update here. We think it’s a very worthwhile update, but what are your thoughts? Has anyone disliked it so much that they reverted back to Gingerbread? What problems have you faced? For those running 2011 Xperia handsets, do you feel that the hardware can do Android 4.0 justice? Or on the positive side, do you feel that it has transformed your phone? We’d love to hear your thoughts below.
