The screen bleed issue doesn't really bother me, but wifi connectivity, constant reboots and bad reception do concern me quite a bit. Poor battery life also concerns me, but as long as I can make it through the work (8-12 hours) day I'll be happy.
Reading through forums it's been difficult to determine if these issues have been resolved with the new software update.
Has Gingerbread fixed the issues with the G2x? Wifi? reception (phone and data)? Reboots? Battery life?
Should I just buy another phone?
I'm pretty sure all phones have problems, if you go to any forum you'll see people complain about their phone. lol.
As far as the G2x is concerned:
I think the screen bleed issue has actually been much improved with Gingerbread.
The nightlight on Gentle Alarm at it's darkest on FroYo was pretty bright, with Gingerbread, it's much darker now.
The WiFi connectivity is something I'm not aware of.
Constant reboots? I've had only three reboots since Gingerbread, which I've had for about two weeks now.
I've had good reception. Can't complain about that. Although some people have had problems.
As far as battery life is concerned, I think they all suck. lol. I wouldn't say it's better nor worse than my Nexus One or G2 were.
