1. Battery life is still short. Haven't fixed it.
2. Cannot turn off the start-up ringtone.
3. Cannot turn off the Screen Animation.
Thanks for the long-waited ICS.

For me....Battery life seems a bit better.
As for the cons :
1. I cannot resize the samsung power widget now.
2. I have a Motorola Roadster blue tooth headset. It worked great. Press a button and vlingo would say "what you like to do"?
I'd say " call home" and it would.
Now I'm getting a prompt saying that the roadster wants to access my contacts. I press ok and nothing. So i have a nice paperweight.
3. Charging times seem a lot longer.
4. Some apps are locking up and I get a black screen.
I wonder what the QA was for this release. And if it's possible (without voiding the warranty...how does one revert back to the gingerbread release (ie...when things worked) ?

Got my upgrade on Sunday. So far, it looks like my battery is draining faster than before. I also notice the Gallery app no longer has any sort options, or at least none I can find. I've switched over to a great beta app called Photo Timeline that sorts pictures off the "Date Taken" EXIF data, rather than the file creation date. Very nice.
I'm also disappointed by how much of the Android 4 user interface was left out by Samsung. I guess it's comforting for the 2.3 users that the UI changed little. But I was expecting more.
I think I'm getting close to putting CyanogenMod 9 onto my phone. It's hard to keep fighting against all the crap foisted upon us by Samsung and AT&T.

In Phone->Logs->Menu->View by, I selected "All calls" instead of "All logs".
Then I exited.
When I returned to Logs, it is viewed by "All logs" again rather than "All calls" that I set.
My setting was not saved.
Is it a bug?

I updated to my i777 to ICS yesterday and I am having an issue with the media volume— the external speakers don't work and the volume for the headphone jack doesn't change when you adjust the control by any method, it just plays at a low fixed volume even though the on screen indication moves up and down. Did this happen to anyone else?

Come on, now. I know that we have tendencies to be cry-babies. I'm sure there are some positives to ICS. We have waited so long for it.

I found another possible bug.
I set up a screen lock secured with pattern and a backup PIN.
When I tried several times to unlock the screen but failed, I was prompted to use my Gmail and password to unlock it.
However, I entered my Gmail and password--and I'm sure both were correct--but I was prompted Invalid username or password. It was weird. BUG?
Does anyone have the same problem?

I too am experiencing frequent (2 or 3 per day) random reboots.
I was experiencing very slow app loading and some wifi issues, but removing the battery seems to resolved those issues.

Thank you for your feedback, vmaffeo.
Regarding to the unlocking bug,
When the WIFI is on, I can use my gmail and password to unlock the screen.
When the WIFI is off, my gmail and password is always invalid, even I enter them correctly.
