    Hi All,

    I just updated my Galaxy S to Froyo & I have to admit, menu switching & screen switchin are slower than 2.1 on the same phone!
    Swype has slowed down...
    Disappoints.....:(:(

    Internet access seems much faster though...

    Haven't tested GPS yet.

    Anyone notice the same?

    I've noticed the exact same, and it's real frustrating. I'd appreciate input from anyone how to rectify this. Lag fix? Does it work on 2.2?

    I don't have tilt sensor problem before but after upgrading the android operating system 2.2 to my SGS. I installed through Samsung Kies but after it has auto-rotate problem many times. If i go to *#0*# testing mode and select testing sensors then auto rotate is working great. But in google and other many navigation softwares it is not working good now even without installing any third party softwares.
    I don't know this happened after upgrading from 2.1 to 2.2. Even I do factory reset twice a times also. But this problem is not solved.
    Froyo is not looking stable on my mobile. GPS also stop working many times. So i am not happy with it :(

    You should always perform a factor reset after upgrading firmware. This is to eradicate all traces of the preceding version so they don't conflict. It should greatly increase the speed of your phone.

    +1 to doing a factory reset, in most instances this goes a long way toward solving many issues that people have after a fresh firmware flash...

    Hi

    I have a question regarding the same i.e. my phone has considerably slowed down after upgrading to 2.2. However I am reluctant to do a factory reset because

    1.it might delete all my apps ( e.g. Angry birds score)
    2. My sms'es
    3. My contacts list

    I can reload my contacts however I am really concerned about point 1 (Apps). Can someone let me know whether factory reset will erase all third party apps on the phone?

    Thanks

    Yes it will. If you Root the phone and backup your apps with Titanium backup then they should restore with their data on 2.2 (after Rooting the phone again to install Titanium backup).

    Contacts should just sync again from Google, so that shouldn't be a problem. There are SMS backup apps you can use, although I can't recommend any since I don't use them (I use SMSbackup, which automatically sends them all as emails to my Gmail address to a folder called SMS, you could do that if having them on your phone is not vital).

    Flash support is a huge bonus with 2.2, now Android users can experience the whole website while apple users have to make do with half :p

    Also comes with better RAM management and an inbuilt task manager. I also believe it's a lot less power hungry.

    Thanks for your reply. However I do have one more query regarding this. As I dont want to lose some progress made on a couple of games ( Angry birds, Asphalt) and I understand that 'Factory reset' do NOT touch the apps installed on SD card, So is there any way by which I can transfer my apps on to SD Card.

    Nishant

    When I upgraded, I lost my Asphalt progress but seriously, despite this loss, Froyo is still the better firmware so I recommend making the most of it.

    Ryan you clearly like Froyo over Eclaire. Can you please enumerate the reasons? What are all of the advantages and disadvantages of Froyo? TIA

    That's a big assumption. You are assuming the user has all of his/her contacts in Google. Personally, all my phone contacts are not on Google (manually entered into the Phone app). A reset would lose all of these contacts.

    I just updated mine to Froyo last night. I am on Bell in Canada and the update was in Kies when I logged in. Installed with no issues and everything seems great. Very pleased :)

    I personally find backing up contacts to sd card the fastest and easiest way to do it.
