My Gingerbread E910 vs Ice Cream Sandwich AD683G

I hate Ice Cream Sandwich. No. Not the real ice cream (or sandwich), I hate the Ice Cream Sandwich version of AndroidOS. I’ve just changed my nice Gingerbread phone (1Ghz single core) with a renewed-should be improved-same brand Ice Cream Sandwich phone (1Ghz dual core), and I don’t like it. At all. It’s laggy, it doesn’t give you option of having your menu all scrolled down like in Gingerbread -HTC, HiSense, and several other brand do this for their FroYo/Gingerbread version but all changed in the ICS version- and it’s laggy. Did I just say laggy two times? Oh well, another one: laggy.

I’ve tried Samsung, HTC, HiSense, LG, and Lenovo, and noticed that all devices on ICS run a tad -for some, much- slower than their predecessor Gingerbread phone. Why oh why such company would want to make an improve of some gorgeous operation system and replacing it with the uglier one? Why Google, why?

But then again, I’m not a tech genius. They are the one who know better, don’t they?

Argh! Hate it.

MixZing. Music Player with Sleep Timer.

What do you think the most important feature of an mp3 player?
Mine is… Sleep Timer.

Why? Because the must-have time of listening music for me is while I’m about to sleep -neck to neck with while driving apparently. So when my precious iPod classic had trouble with its battery I turn my back to my phone. Thanks to Android and it’s heavy number of apps, I got this amazing FREE apps: MixZing Basic.

It suits me perfectly. Has those in-app googling feature (info, bio, lyrics, etc.), equaliser, and on top of all, sleep timer. Yay! Not to mention it’s free. It’s one of the rare free apps with sleep timer feature, so yeah I can’t really asking for more (or can I?).

It also has 6 type of widgets that you can choose but you have to store it in the phone memory to make it work.

So for those of you who have android phone and are looking for the same thing as me, this might be the perfect apps for you. You can download it here.
