    Since installing 2.3.3 on my sgt7, it's become so slow it's almost unusable. I'm on the verge of throwing the thing away. I'll be playing a game for example, press the home key and I see the desktop (after a slower than usual response) then I'm sat there waiting second after second after second for the icons to show up. Sometimes they don't, and I have to swipe left/right to another page of my desktop and back. Other times I'll press a key and after a second of no apparent response to it, I'll press it again (while shouting at it) and then both key-presses are acknowledged. Not very useful when the key I pressed is the shift key, and my second press cancels it.

    Gingerbread has totally taken all the joy out of using my SGT7. If I don't go back to Froyo soon then I'm likely to throw it against the wall soon.

    I couldn't find how to uninstall 2.3.3 via Kies, and don't see it in the Android menus either.

    I'd happily reset it to factory settings and re-install every single app to get back to Froyo right now.

    As far as I know once you do an OS update whether it's a phone or tab then even if you factory reset you would still have that new OS on there.

    Ask yourself one question : what is it you think you'll get from Gingerbread ?
