Google has finally released the latest version of Android which is named Jelly Bean. The previous version Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was released but a large number of users have not enjoyed it yet.

The reason behind this back to back release of both versions is not known yet. At the moment, there are only a few devices which are officially running on ICS or Jelly Bean.

I am pretty sure that many people will have ICS Installed on their devices.
Now let us start the comparison between ICS & Jelly Bean so that you can have a better idea.

Speed: If you try to load a heavy app on both the devices or try to load a web page on both of them. You will see for yourself that Jelly Bean is indeed faster.

Looks: You will surely enjoy these changes and guarantee you that you will not even think of going back to ICS after using Jelly Bean.

Contacts: Google has improved this feature in the contacts list by increasing its resolution, so that the user can easily identify the contact. The contact picture will automatically be downloaded from your Google+ account after synchronization.

Messaging: The keyboard in ICS and Jelly Bean look similar but the main improvement has been made in the text input. The predictive text input feature is much improved now.

Camera: Camera app in Jelly Bean has been significantly improved as compared to ICS. Especially the multiple fast paced photos feature is quiet amazing and works much better and faster than in ICS.

App Management: Moving, installing, deleting, hiding and all other features that come under the category of app management are exactly the same in ICS and Jelly Bean. Even the style is also same. The only difference is the speed, which the user can judge by naked eye.

Conclusion: You surely will have understood that despite small differences Jelly Bean is obviously better than ICS in all departments.
