    AOKP, or the Android Open Kang Project, is an ICS version of AOSP for several devices offering stock ICS to any device that can support it. I am reviewing from my unofficial build for the AT&T Galaxy S II.

    Presentation 9/10
    I can honestly say that AOKP/ICS is much cleaner and smoother looking than Gingerbread/AOSP/CM7. The menus and system apps seem much more, with a lack of better words, modern to my eyes.

    App Availability 6/10
    A lot of apps have been made to work on ICS builds, yet some still are exclusive to GB. I would recommend making sure that the apps you use daily are working on ICS or find an alternative... just be aware that there will be apps that won't work and some that do. I'm sure as time goes on more and more apps will be available, though.

    ICS Launchers 8/10
    Very lovely and very fast. The main launchers are Trebuchet, Apex (what I'm currently using), and another one that I forgot the name of. They resemble stock ICS launcher but offer more customization options.

    Speed 9/10
    Very fast... I noticed a small difference in my upgrade (it was already fast) but ICS made it faster. I saw a big difference in the camera mostly.

    Battery ?/10
    I have yet to extensively test this and I will give my results in a day or two.

    System Customization 7/10
    There's the ability to customize status bar toggles, status bar, whether or not to have the navigation bar, and many others such as the ability to change the buttons on the lockscreen. Lacking some and no theme chooser/something similar but it's alright for me.

    Screenshots later.
