    Does anybody else think that 2.1 is more responsive/smoother than Froyo aka 2.2?

    I went back to 2.1 because I didn't feel the smoothness on 2.2 as I did on 2.1. The browser as well feels smoother on 2.1

    Anybody else agree?

    I highly doubt you'll get anyone to agree, keep trying other Rome and I'm sure you'll never go back to eclair every again!

    I agree with you, Crazy. Ever since I did the manual update to 2.2 I've been having nothing but problems...reception issues, awful battery life, slower response times and whatnot. I'm just going to root and put a custom ROM on.

    um. its not worse, but its not all that much better. on 2.1 i dont get redaws at all with launcherpro like i do on 2.2, but there are things on 2.2 that are snappier. so 2.2 isnt a ton better

    Bluetooth handsfree dialing, Adobe Flash, Wireless tethering...... I'll live with the fact that 2.2 doesn't really run any better than 2.1...

    2.2 much smoother and faster but battery life is not as good (not horribly bad, just slightly less)
