    Hi
    I have recently updated my Galaxy S to Froyo (on Vodafone UK network) and it's great. However, having read various articles about Froyo beforehand i was expecting the homescreen to 'look different'. I had seen pictures of a new homescreen dock, similar to those in ADW and LauncherPro. But nothing has changed looks-wise on my phone and Touchwiz launcher still has the same 4 coloured icons in the same dock.

    Am i missing something here?

    Thanks

    My best guess is that those screenshots you saw were of someone who had a custom destkop app like aHome for example.

    The Galaxy S has Samsung's own TWLauncher as it's default home screen; the changes you've seen are for the standard Android launcher. If you want to see how that looks/feels try 'LauncherPro' from the Market - it's a souped up version of the standard launcher, I for one have used it on my Galaxy for months :):)

    You're saying you updated it to Froyo manually? Or UK service pushed it to your phone?

    If they pushed it, I'm exremely jealous!
