Although things seem smoother, it could be that the ROM I'm using might have been tweaked for performance. The ROM Cook of the ROM I'm using likes to do that sort of thing. So I'm not best to answer when it comes to performance or battery life at this point.
I've found this seems to be a "feature" of Andriod Market/Play Store. When I install apps via Amazon App Store or other 3rd party markets, I don't have this issue.
Another benefit of ICS I wanted to point out, is that 3rd party resizable widgets function nicely in ICS. And 3rd party widgets that allow scrolling actually work as they should in ICS. I don't know if anyone uses any Widgets that allow scrolling of items, but with GB you cannot scroll because of how Sense is implemented in GB. This is not an issue with ICS.
I HOPE THE ICS UPDATE FOR THE HTC SENSATION 4G HAS COMPLETE LANDSCAPE MODE SO IT CAN BE AS SAFE TO USE IN A CAR DOCK WHILE DRIVING LIKE MOTOROLA PHONES ARE. MY LAST PHONE WAS A MOTOROLA MILESTONE X (ALSO KNOWN AS DROID X) ON ALLTEL. THE PHONE WAS ULTRA AWSOME, IT WENT INTO 100% LANDSCAPE MODE WHEN IN THE CAR DOCK (W/ANDROID 2.2). THE TRANSITION BETWEEN LOCK SCREEN, GPS NAVIGATION AND PHONE DIALER COMBINED WITH THE BEST VOICE COMMAND SOFTWARE IN ALL OF MOBILE PHONE HISTORY WAS DA BOMB. BUT, AFTER A LITTLE OVER 13 YEARS I WAS FORCED TO PORT OVER T MOBILE (TO CONTINUE TO HAVE GREAT SERVICE AND MONTHLY PRICING) AND HAD TO SETTLE FOR THE HTC SENSATION 4G. IT IS AN AWSOME PHONE BUT IT HAS AN INCOMPLETE AND THEREFORE VERY UNSAFE LANDSCAPE MODE. AFTER ALL I SHOULD KNOW BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN DRIVING FOR A LIVING FOR JUST A LITTLE OVER 16 YEARS. I AM JUST THE KIND OF PERSON THE CARRIERS AND MOBILE DEVICE MANUFACTURERS ARE LOOKING FOR TO PARTICIPATE IN TESTING AND EVALUATING HARDWARE, SOFTWARE AND,ACCESSORIES BUT, UNFORTUNATELY THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THE LONG TERM CUSTOMERS WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND HOW BEST TO IMPLEMENT HARDWARE, SOFTWARE AND ACCESSORY FEATURES IN THE REAL WORLD AND, HAVE AT LEAST A DECADE OF EXPERIENCE AS A SOFTWARE BETA TESTER AND HAVE EVALUATED OTHER PRODUCTS AS WELL. I TRIPLE DARE ANY MOBILE DEVICE MANUFACTURER OR SERVICE PROVIDER TO ALLOW EVEN ONE CUSTOMER LIKE ME FROM THE REAL WORLD FOR INSTANCE TO BE ALLOWED TO TEST EVEN ONE DEVICE OR SOFTWARE UPDATE. IF THEY DID THEY WOULD BE SHOCKED AT THE RESULTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The update does not have the level of landscape support that you are looking for.
You can get a portrait car dock from a site such as http://www.proclipusa.com/ or you should probably get some other device.
Just want to demostrate how folders look in ICS, after you've drag and dropped several app icons on top of each other.
The folders in the image above are "System Tools", "Food", "Games 1", "Games 2". You can see some of the icons in the folders.
Below is a picture of what the folder "Games 1" looks like when it is opened.
You can place up to 16 app icons in a single folder.
