    i wish the +/- sign can now go away. it's blocking my view most of the times. now that there's pinchzoom i don't know why it's still there

    This pops up on me, too. The only thing though, when the +/- sign is there, I can't pinch zoom anymore. And I can't figure out whats bringing it up, It's just every now and then, without warning.

    Disagree 100%. Nothing worse than pinch-zooming to the wrong bit. Double tap works consistently well for me.

    Perhaps a setting so people can chose which they prefer. That way everyone wins :)

    Yep double tap + and - needs to stay for one handed operation. I've used pinch to zoom maybe 3 times, I just don't get why having to use both hands is better.

    I think they mean zooming using the plus and minus buttons using the same hand you are holding it with.

    If you're holding the phone in one hand and pinching with the other, that's what they mean by two handed operation.

    Yes, the multitouch thing is a little overrated in browser, everybody wanted it- but I am sure only few people use it now...I prefer +-
    But in photoviewer I like it a lot.

    I still double tap even when using the phone with both hands. I did this when I had an iPhone too.

    I pinch/zoom with one hand. I think its a million times better because I can zoom in/out to any degree. With the +/- and tapping, I'm stuck with HUGE, medium, and reaaally tiny

    Don't you guy notice that the Zoom button do auto column fit nicely..whereas pinch zoom just zoom..without aligning the text to the left edge and wrap the text nicely..when coming to forum browsing..the magnifying zoom icon work much better..

    Pinch zoom is good for picture..not for forum browsing..

    A simple double tap sometimes doing zoom out..to accurately zoom the desired level..holding on the Zoom icon the best...after getting correct zoom level..it will do the auto adjust..

    Usually i will do double tapping..if the zoom level is still too small..i will tap and hold the zoom icon to zoom to desired level then let go finger..

    wow...I don't remember exactly how it was before WITH the Nexus One, but I don't remember being notified of newer market app versions I already had installed, so I had to visit the Android Market and go to "Downloads" to check it manually, but after update-1 I get notifications in the bar. Thumbs up to the improvement!

    EDIT: I'd say the Market itself has taken a facelift :)

    I actually hate the 2.1 update. Sure it was nice to get pinch to zoom, but somehow they managed to fix the 3G-Edge fluctuation while utterly destroying 3G speeds.

    Some days I love this phone and everything about it, other days I get really annoyed at Google for not being ready to support it. It's like their beta testers all lived in their little Mountain View bubble and didn't wander off the campus to see how this things works in real world situations.

    I actually called Google's phone support this morning to discuss the issue and they have nothing useful to say and won't comment on any potential updates. According to the rep I spoke with, the post update-1 issues are isolated and they still need to collect data before an OTA will be issued.

    So yeah, they are aware of it, but by no means would I expect another OTA update as soon as some have suggested.

    Today I don't like this phone.
