    What are the difference between Android Gingerbread and Android Ice Cream Sandwich?

    Everyone is so looking forward for the Android new version release, but what is the difference between the old and new version? Is it really worth to the hype given?

    Hello Friend,


    Android Gingerbread is the predecessor of Android Icecream Sandwich 4.0.There are has been lot of improvemnts in ICS 4.0 to make user experience wonderful.


    The prominent differnce b/w Android gingerbread and ICS is :-


    1)UI & Font System:-ICS 4.0's UI could undoubtedly be called the best amongst it's OS fraternity. It is much sleekier than Gingerbread. The new font system of ICS 4.0 also called Roboto is specially designed for high resolution screens and brings a magazine-like feel to the entire interface.


    2)Data usage and Network Data management:-Android ICS 4.0 has better data usage management and ICS has its own built-in network traffic monitor system.


    3)Browsing potential:-ICS has faster browsing speed when compared to Gingerbread.


    4)Multitasking & Widgets:-ICS adds a new dimension to both these concepts with Recent Apps button to switch from one task to another


    5)Screenshots:-Just hold down the volume down key and the power button to capture the screen.

    User Interface : Ice Cream Sandwich is much sleeker than Gingerbread.
    Multitasking, Widgets, and Folders: Ice Cream Sandwich will be bringing new meaning to both of those features with some key upgrades.
    Network Data Manager: The new Data usage controls allow for constant monitoring of your total usage by network type and application.
    Browser :The ICS browser is one of the best we've seen on a mobile. Its speed is incredible.
    Declining calls with a text message

    Hello friend,

    this is a very good topic for a discussion.

    well talking about gingerbread and ICS

    Ics is going to take all the good features of Honeycomb( OS for tablet) and include them in it.
    ICS is Os for android phones as well as it can be used in tablets. So no more problem of having different Os for tablet and phones.

    ICS will have a whole new different look and feel and comes with a HOLO theme which by the way is really cool.

    ICS tends to use more RAM than Gingerbread(GB) as it is much heavier than GB.
    The web Browser uses 20-30 MB of RAM more than GB web browser.

    ICS have a slower interaction with SQL interface as google have SQL handling from native layer to java layer.


    I hope it helps with you query.

    You can get updates for ICS .
