Some of the feature additions in Ice Cream Sandwich are:

  • Face Unlock - With Face Unlock you can now unlock your phone with a smile and no complicated passwords are required to unlock your phone.
  • Android Beam - With NFC enabled phones, like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus you can simply transfer files, photos, music, etc by holding phones close to each other.
  • Enhanced Voice typing - Watch text appear instantaneously as you speak with voice input
  • Google+ - Even though Google+ is currently available to download with Ice Cream Sandwich it is going to be built in with better integration.
  • Camera - Improved camera interface with the ability to take panoramic pictures.
