According to detailed changelog released by LG and Sprint there are no special features aside from ICS’ standard. This is mean that both of them are currently not implement any new innovation on this firmware update. However, that doesn’t mean this Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is not a welcomed release. Not all handsets are lucky enough to receive such treat from it’s manufacturer.
