    Apparantly the 2.1 update has reduced the graphics capabilities of the Droid, and therefore I'm assuming the Milestone too.

    Unfortunately, I never ran the lag test before I updated to 2.1 so I can't say whether my phone is better or worse off in the graphics department.

    Currently running official 2.1, my average fps sits at about 37.

    Can anyone still running 2.0.1 download this app , run it, and post their results here?

    I'd be interested to know whether the reports on the Droid's graphics are the same as on our Milestones. And of course we then need to make Motorola aware!

    Ye that's quite a dramatic performance drop! Hopefully it'll get sorted next release....

    37 FPS on 2.1? While on 2.0.1, he gets 58 Average. Yikes.
    Something must be up. But I have not heard anything about this until now. I wonder if any others have this issue. When did you notice it and decide to test it?

    dvd's only play back at 24 FPS. That difference is not even visable to the naked eye as long as some kind of motion blur is incorperated. unless you game a lot and it affects your gaming I wouldn't even worry about it.

    really 30FPS on a screen this size is more than enough, why are you people crying?

    @dieKatze88 I'm guessing you haven't played an emulator with 2.1, so you can shut it.

    Well it's also if there's an intense game that would have normally have been running up at 60, and at some particularly heavy graphical moments would drop to 30. But if you're already running at 30, what's gonna happen when the framerate drops..

    I've been thinking about it, and the locked framerate of 2.1 is probably the reason for the speed up, freeing massive amounts of system time rendering things we can't see anyway for actually doing some calculations.

    Also, super troll up there, I have played an emulator on 2.1, and its fine for me. Surprising considering I actually bought my own arcade machine because I hate sub par console games. Hmmm.


    The only thing that annoys me on the topic of visual stuff on 2.1 for the milestone is it seems now my H.264 videos go out of sync more often than they used to. I can live.
