    My review of Froyo

    It has been two full days since I updated my NexusOne to Android 2.2 Froyo.
    Briefly some changes I noticed.

    • Smoother and faster
    • Rotating to 270 degree
    • Tethering options (USB or WiFi hotspots)
    • New ways to unlock the phone: Patterns, Passcode, and Passwords
    • Phone and contact apps rotation
    • New car home app
    • Twitter for android is built in now
    • Flash 10.1 beta enables flash
    • Faster browsing experience
    • Phone and browser icon on the bottom.
    • Option to move apps to SD card
    • New GoogleTalk app
    • New Message (SMS) App

    Probably there tons of other changes but those are ones that I can actually experience by using them. Is Froyo a huge improvement? Absolutely! Am I completely satisfied coming from Eclair Moded rom? No way.
    I was using Enomther’s modified ROM. It did most of Froyo improvements already except Flash. It had even more; such as data connection optimization, trackball colors for different notifications, IM app from G1, able to delete stock apps without adb commands, and etc.
    I love almost every aspects of Froyo. I know it will get even better once moders comes out with custom mods. As of the stock these are things I don’t like

    • Rotation to 270
    • Facebook and Twitter app is built in. I had to adb to delete them
    • Not all apps are working with Froyo yet – I want my MLB at Bat and Pure Calendar right now!!!
    • CarHome looks nice. But in order to go to home screen, I have to exit and relaunch it to get back to CarHome.
    • TrackBall color notification options are still very limited and not implemented well yet

    These are things I noticed, hope Google will update Froyo again soon to bring better user experience.


    Is there anything I haven't noticed??

    What's new in the Message App? I don't see any changes in that App.

    message app used to be go to message field after choose one contact, but now it stays on To: section to add more people on it.

    It still sends multiple messages rather than one. hope they fix it next time!

    No. It didn't. Still going to the next field once I choose one recipient.

    I agree with hawon, once you choose a contact it remains in the contact box awaiting another so you have to make it go to the subject or content fields.

    I know there there's probably mixed feelings on this one, but I really like the new vibration settings.

    It's enabled me to do away with my profile app.

    Depending on the program my Trackball now changes color. Woot Watcher and TouchDown both change the color of the Trackball now in 2.2 and did not before in 2.1.

    I use the app TV Guide and it allows you to set reminders for upcoming shows. Well today I had a reminder go off and the trackball was green!! I love these hidden surprises.
