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... :p

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

    I'm wishing i could revert back to 2.1 right now! Or maybe just go ahead and root.

    2.2 has been running faster for me overall, but the decreased battery life is unacceptable. I used to come home from work with about 40-50% of my battery left, and now I'm lucky to make it through the work day. Many days I come home with less than 20%.

    That and I'm getting a terrible audio bug since the update. Most of my notifications make a pop/hissing noise when they go off. That and Youtube audio always devolves into pops and hisses, with none of the actual audio working!

    I find 2.1 smoother with launcherpro as well.

    Having said that, I cannot live without 2.2 roms and flash player. 2.3 (or 3.0) developers definitely have quite a bit of work to do.
