    the numbers dont lie homie, better numbers will usually indicate a more "snappier" end-user perception. similarly I havent felt the need to switch over to the DX yet because my moto droid runs higher cpu benchmark and quadrant scores. basically, it doesnt matter what your brain is telling you, its a unix based system that is moving only as fast as its displayed numbers! ;-)

    You couldn't be anymore wrong than you are right now with
    these one off generalizations bro.

    Numbers aren't everything.
    It sounds like bench racing to me.

    If an overclock at say 1.2GHZ (on paper) is much faster
    than an 800Mhz over clock, yet if the processor doesn't handle more
    I/O's your experience will suffer. Not every phone was made equally and with the variances/tolerances that exist today with regard to CPU clock speeds it is very possible to have a "faster" phone with a lower OC
    based on what the phone is physically capable of.

    I will personally take a lower numbered score for fluidity and performance.

    You can keep your *awesome score*
    No worries. Just stop pretending what you feel based on numbers
    dictates absolute fact, when there are other variables at work here.

    agreed, there are many factors, I guess all im really gettin at is that if your seeing high bench scores, you probably arent experiencing much if any lag, depending on setup.

    for instance, I cant hardly get P3 kernels to boot to save my life, but I have 3 friends whos droids I helped root, and one of them would not accept the chevy ulv 1.1, ended up having to go with a standard voltage p3 1gig kernel. but again, you wont see low seek times and high bench scores on a laggy/buggy phone.

    I read this thread yesterday and thought i'll give the stock 2.2 a try and so far i love it. no screen withdraws atm. u know where you hit home and your icons dont come up for a few secs. havent had that happen yet. idk about battery life but BB was pretty decent after i stopped playing the Storm8 game. always took 10% of battery and i was only on it for 5 mins maybe less...

    wont hurt to give 2.2 stock a shot
