ArtooDetoo: Now that I have all the doodads functional again, I can once more bask in the glow of the almost-perfection that is 2.2.1. Still smooth, still responsive, still a joy to use. Is it better than an iPhone 4? Dunno, but it's at least as good in its user interaction, it's lighter and the screen is bigger, and it's noticably superior in the great outdoors. If nothing else, the iP4 has a real competitor in this phone.
Time will tell if lag reappears, but so far, nary a whiff of it.
And the GPS is locking, in my office, in under 10 seconds. Awesome.
Thanks to the OP for the heads-up that this update was available and to the peeps who chimed in with tips and advice. And Mummy Neets for the cheek and encouragement.
You're a great bunch of people.
All the best,
PS: I just know that some other tempting Update-O-Goodness™ will get me lusting to flash again, so expect this to be a short-lived oasis of contentment.
You're welcome ;-)
I don't consider my upgrade to be as smooth as others I've done. What a royal pain in the a$$ it was. I realise some of it was doing a factory reset and then having to set up the system settings from scratch. Then the hour I spent in vain trying to get the CSC fixed (appears it's not just me according to the XDA forum). And to top it off, my battery is draining faster than a swimming pool with a turd in it.
I've been left a bit disappointed. Perhaps my expectations were too high based on the Doc roms. And he's getting a Nexus S (or whatever it is) so his dev on the SGS will slow if not stop. Oh I've been spoilt and I don't like anything less ;-)
