Android 4.0.4 (Galaxy S II GT-i9100), soon to be 4.1.2. I don't anticipate Samsung doing another official update for this device, nor do I want to deal with the bugs and missing features of AOSP-based ROMs and Cyanogen. I suspect it won't be until at least Android 5.x that I seriously consider upgrading.

Did you not take the upgrade? Swear I remember seeing you post some stuff.

I am on 4.1.1, The People's Rom for sg3. It is damn near the best Rom I have ever dropped on one of our phones. It is completely not your total stripped-down or AOSP deal. It has everything the official release has, a little more, with stability taken into concern. I made it Whizzless by ripping out everything I could and use Nova Launcher. Nice set of governor tweaks and undervolted like a mofo. Streaming music all day and moderately heavy usage has yielded amazing battery life. Paired with a new charging strategy(I only charge between 20%-80ish%, only in the mornings and never to 100%) the battery is not an issue at all. It is fucking peachy.

I have no problems with AOSP, the CM stuff is alright. For the Sg3 there is a lag in connectivity, you go from LTE to 3g your connection will act scared. All phones have their issues with the sourced options. MIUI was and is the greatest OS in the Android world, JMHO. I fell in love with that shit. BUT! They upgrade and it is shit. Every week something else is dropped or doesn't work. In a perfect world, I would have a stable MIUI Rom that people have stopped fucking with. The TouchWiz offerings, especially the recent stuff...is just an amazing starting point. Outside of carrier bloat(avoid with international versions) they have listened to the consumer. It is good stuff, although I hate the launcher. That said, I doubt an AOSP, CM, or AOKP release will ever power this phone. Don't fuck with shit that works just to make shit work a different way.

It was initially to be a 4.1.1 update released in October. However, Samsung delayed it to rebase it on 4.1.2 and include many features from the Premium Suite upgrades that are coming to the Note 2, SGS3, and Note 10.1 (we got the Note 10.1 4.1.2 + Premium Suite last night on my wife's tablet). This has caused a delay, and the only official release dates announced so far are early February for Singapore and Korea. Poland is traditionally the first country to get SGS2 updates, so there's speculation that it could hit the last week of January.

CM based roms are great... AOKP is especially great.. I'm using it on my Nexus 4. The problem that alot of custom roms have though is on the RIL in relation to LTE since alot of that code is proprietary. The roms only tend to have bugs on non aosp phones. On Nexus devices they run smoother than a baby's ass and add features.


Also to add, I'm on 4.2.1 on my nexus. (Windows 8 (Not RT) on my tablet... Asus Vivo Tab 810)

I gave in. 4.2.1, AOKP. An unofficial, of course.

This is a thing of beauty. TW roms were giving me audio playback woes. Shopped around a bit and found that nice stuff.
Will be back with screens and more.......

I might give Republic Wireless a shot once my contract is over this summer, but until then, I'm on a dumb phone. It doesn't even have a camera. It's at least 6 years old too. I almost never have it on.

I'm using a Nokia Lumia 920 right now but I'm about to switch to the HTC One when its released. USAA pulling their wp8 app for lack of use was kind of the last straw for me on windows phone.

The annoying 4.2.2 bug was squashed. Running the current MROM build, battery life under heavy use is two to three days without having to charge.
