Xperia arc S ICS Beta - Sneak Peek
Just a peek into the ICS Beta ROM for the Xperia arc S
Sorry if I sounded incoherent in the vid... It was 3am and I've not been sleeping well the past 2 days
Anyways, I didn't do a full run through on the settings area, but several differences include WiFi Direct, and Font Size changing! The ICS Gallery also allows you to view images in full size now, unlike the GB galleries and below, and for the case of the arc S, allows you to stream your pictures and videos wirelessly onto TVs and computers within the same WiFi network without the need for cables!
Take that Mini HDMI!
Anyways, since I didn't run through everything, you guys can either ask me what's there and what's not about the ROM, it'll give me things to explore as well
Note that the final version for this should be a lot smoother, and as it stands, the UI runs a LOT smoother than the Xperia S due to the Forced GPU Rendering using Go Launcher, beating out even the Galaxy S2, Motorola RAZR and LG Optimus 2X on Cyanogen Mod OC'ed to 1.4GHz by FAR.
Score for Quadrant also increased from the 1400s to well over 1550 constantly
That said... I wish the screenshot feaure was ported in...
Nonetheless though... Good job Sony! Kudos on taking the TI parts of the code out and placing the Qualcomm optimized ones in! =)
