for the past 1 week,i am a satisfied user of SGN (android) , switched from iPhone 4s (iOS)
love the big & beautiful 5.3" screen. android allows convenient ways to upload pics via social networks through many platforms. but it is much restricted over on iOS.viewing google earth on SGN is beautiful.

my friends like it too,but they find it too big.
battery wise,it was bad at first till i downloaded an app "2x battery".
strongly recommended.

if you are someone who care about audio/sound quality,get iPhone.
SGN is close,but iPhone is better.
and the battery on SGN is replaceable.
but but but fruitphone users are suppose to adapt to apple's AWESOME eco-system..

There are 2 ways for you. Either you stay stock and unrooted and wait for official ics, or you root and go custom rom and wait for custom rom for ics.

Anyway, you have can always switch back from custom rom and stock or vice versa...
so if root liao can still stay with stock huh?

Like sms/email app they can back up your notification settings, delivery report settings but it will not back up your sms...

But then again i think it depends on the app. They do back up my game scores and my current stage for angry birds and plants vs zombies...
Actually it does. But most people don't restore system data, so u think it doesn't work.

M4A could be due to certain factors, like DRM or whatever shenanigans Apple is up to, like different codecs.

Video wise, same problem. Like how mov files don't play nice Samsung models, most times it's because it's h264 combined with aac. Best solution is to use 3rd party players like MX Player, which allows usage of hardware to decode video but software decoding of audio.
