    Is Anyone Happy with Froyo 2.2?

    I am currently running the stock version of 2.1 - all updates have been OTA to this point and the phone is up-to-date, minus the "upgrade" to 2.2. I have been holding off on making this change as I've only read negative things about the update.

    - Poor Battery Life
    - 3G Reliability
    - Etc.

    Is there anyone that has made the OTA Upgrade to 2.2 and is happy about it? Have you noticed a decrease in your battery life? I charge my phone about once every 48 hours now and usually have 20% or more remaining when I chage. Is this going to be a mistake? I was hoping that 2.2 would help with signal strength, stop the phone from freezing, faster browsing, etc.

    I haven't had any issues with 2.2. Initially I had the battery life issues, but I did the pull the battery and *228 thing and my battery acts the same as it was before the update. I have noticed some nice refinements to the phone. Swype works better, more features in clock and calendar, and of course flash is nice. I'm glad I upgraded.

    I agree with VMAX. My battery life went down big time. I did the factory reset and am back to normal + 2.2 (maybe even better than normal.)

    Everything works better with 2.2, period. Pay no attention to the alarmists that don't know enough to do a factory reset after a ROM upgrade.

    I was off the charger for just over 20 hours yesterday.

    Everything else works better as well.

    I don't understand what people complaint about.
    since I updated to VZW ED01, and rooted with su-2.3.6.1.x.zip
    It's faster than 2.1 (Quadrant result 1017),
    It has stable 3g, battery life is same and GPS is much stabler than 2.1 (still it takes bout 3-4 secs to locate gps, but after some secs it locate right.).
    If u have any problem, than it's your phone.
    try unroot, factory reset than try again..

    Firstly, Not everyone wants to root.

    I'm glad for the update. I did experience battery issues but *think* I've fixed them with the factory reset and battery calibration (*228 etc).

    The phone overall is smoother and frankly the reset cleans things up.

    Factory Reset?

    If I download the 2.2 update and do the Factory Reset, will all of my data, photos, etc. be lost? If so, what is the easiest way to back-up what I currently have? Also, any apps that I've paid for, I'm assuming that I'd have to redownload them? If so, would it recognize that I've already purchased them?

    This is true across the board no matter what phone you have. Froyo is an excellent update.

    Well, you don't have to do a Factory Reset if you receive it OTA. You only need to do the Factory Data Reset if there is an issue after the OTA and that is extremely rare.

    If you did a factory data reset your photos are safe, they are on your SD card. Apps are backed up in the Market, however any data you have in relation to an app will be lost. For example if you have a lot of stuff you've acquired from Home Run Battle 3D you would lose all of that. Your unpaid apps should return, it seems things have changed on that. Before your unpaid apps had to be restored manually but the last time I did it everything came back.

    The OTA Update is me just going into settings and checking for an update and then allowing it to download/install, correct? I've checked and see that I can download 2.2, but I haven't gone through with it.
