Part of me wants to sell my Sensation and get a Galaxy Nexus, but I look at the PenTile AMOLED screen, limited storage and poor camera that it has and I change my mind. Plus, I like pretty much all of the Sensation's hardware (could do without the dust under the screen), it's just Sense that ruins it. Amazing how much faster it feels with AOKP compared to Sense 3.6. I've probably mentioned this a lot in here though, so that's it, I am NOT buying a Galaxy Nexus.

This might be a bit of a n00b question, but what is the difference between Android 2.3 and 4.0?

Not the difference, differences - there are a lot of them wink.gif

The most noticeable changes are those to speed and smoothness (which unfortunately means a low compatibility with lower end/older hardware by using hardware acceleration) and the user interface.
  • The touch response is better
  • Scrolling and zooming are better
  • There's improved support for multi-core processors
  • A new launcher (biggest UI change in unmodified/AOSP Android) with widget resizing, a 5 icon dock, and a very different feel
  • New lock screen
  • Revamped settings with toggles and a data usage tracker
  • All of the Google apps have been updated with a well designed, consistent UI
  • A new keyboard

And more! If you're using a phone with Android 2.3 at the moment and you can put 4.0 on it (either with an official upgrade or a third party ROM that works properly) then you definitely should in my opinion. I've not heard anybody say that they prefer Gingerbread.

I'm currently using the MIUI ROM on my HTC EVO 4G, so what are the similarities between that ROM and 4.0, if you know? The only reason I'm asking is because if I'm to get an android phone again, something has GOT to be different from 2.3 stock, which I couldn't stand at all.

Also a bit off topic but is there an app that just monitors your 3G data usage? I connect to the WiFi at my house Notice the zero 3G bars, near full WiFi and the gym ect, and want to see just how much I use on 3G only.

Well, MIUI has always been quite a different feel to other versions of Android so it's hard to make a direct comparison. It also depends if you want to compare it to Android 4.0 running on MIUI, Sense, TouchWiz, AOSP, etc. as they all feel different but they're all still Android 4.0. Also, when you say 2.3 stock do you mean stock on the EVO 4G - Sense 2.1?

As for a data usage monitor I'm not quite sure, ICS has one built in that only monitors 3G usage unless you ask it to show Wi-Fi usage as well so I don't use an app.

My brother and I both had EVO 4G's, though he's up to a 4G LTE now. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out why, but he always preferred GB over ICS. All of the ROM's he used were GB ROM's, even when I pointed him to some decent-looking ICS ones. He's a big phone freak, so he was deep into customizing his phone, but he just always stuck with GB.

By the way, anyone know any decent ICS ROM's for an EVO 4G? >.> Tried using MIUI and Deck's ICS and both got junked.

Ha, that's weird. I guess he has to use ICS on the 4G LTE now though.
