Is Android 2.1 Choking Droids?
The over-the-air (OTA) update that started rolling out to Droid owners across the country earlier this week appears to be choking the performance out of the handset. Phil Issler of Tesuji Games noticed that video play back was being cut in half, going from 60 frames per second down to 30. ZDNet’s Ed Burnette also noticed that his Droid was behaving in a choppy manner when playing a few games. Below is a video breakdown of their findings when running a test on two Droids. One had Android 2.1 while the other was on 2.0.1.
If early comments are any indication, this aren’t isolated incidents. Let’s hope a maintenance releases or minor update follows right behind the 2.1 rollout.
