I am on GB 2.3.7 MIUI, i've seen ICS is out 4.03 and 4.04 but i really dont like the GUI in it, maybe i am used to GB.

I see lots of people complaining on battery and speed of the rom, what are the benefits of ICS compared to GB in real world experience?

I have been running ICS for a couple of months now and I went back to gingerbread for a couple of days last week to see if I noticed any difference. I have to say ICS is a lot smoother with everything, and a lot faster say with rendering a web page than gingerbread was. I also just couldn't believe how basic and childish gingerbread looked. I will admit the new ICS scrolling mechanism got some getting used it but now I actually prefer it over gingerbread scrolling. Overall I feel that ICS is considerably faster, especially with web browsing, and a huge amount smoother thanks to it's hardware acceleration. I would strongly recommend that you move to ICS, it really does feel like I have a new phone especially running cm9. I hope this helps you

Yet apart from the stock browser i feel ICS is a childish blue upgrade to GB and i dont actually find it or any of the ICS custom roms faster or anything and certainly no improvement over my current set-up .

You have to wait for a few more weeks, you do know that it is a major upgrade and not like froyo to gb . So it does take time to optimize and stabilize the roms .

Essential that is usually true of all firmware but i am not impressed with Samsung's version of ICS so far .
What is under the bonnet may be fine but the bodywork is as ugly as hell .
It all boils down to will i get any advantage with an update answer is so far no and i have tested every version released only to go back each time .Of course when JKay etc is up and running i may look again .

9100G on GB hangs daily, mine does freezing on camera use, download from market, during calls, on reboot due to media scanning, activate wifi or switch between 3G and edge. Battery drains to zero in 30 min. It also freeze when idle in pouch. When it freezes it becomes hot. Quite unusable as a phone not knowing any battery left unless i check it every 30 min. My LG Optimus is 1000times more stable. Now with ICS, it feels like a normal phone. No freeze for past 4 days, downloads. I'm not buying Samsung anymore once this S2 outlive its lifespan. Htc, ate, huawei, lg, or any Chinese brands. Six months before ICS stabilizes it. Now no complains except ram reduced from 1gb to 687mb after upgrade!

That rant is hardly typical of the other 19.999 Million SGS2 owners.

I think you need a dose of introspect.
