LG's changes to Ice Cream Sandwich in hands-on video

LG's phones have a flavour of Ice Cream Sandwich close to Google's original version. Watch the video to find out what's been changed.

Now playing: Watch this: LG's Ice Cream Sandwich changes
1:20

One of the surprises for me at Mobile World Congress was that the big players had so few phones running the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich.

One of the reasons for that is the phone manufacturers just love to mess around with it, chopping and changing the menus and features about, and that takes ages to get right. It also means it takes forever to issue an update to the software when Google changes it.

Unlike HTC, which has messed around with Ice Cream Sandwich to the nth degree, LG has taken a different approach, making only the smallest of changes. It says this will make the process of issuing updates much faster than it was with last year's phones.

But what changes have been made, I hear you ask? Watch the video above and all will be revealed. Oh, and do let me know what you think in the comments below or on our Facebook wall. Ta.
