I made the mistake of thinking alot of the features of stock 2.2 such as on the NexusOne were part of this update. I was really looking forward to the 3D app drawer and such. A little disappointed. I may just root and throw a custom ROM on. Still, I love this phone. Everything is faster.

You must not use your EVO much or maybe there is a software conflict. I recently got my laptop stolen and for the last week I have been using my EVO for everything I definitely see a speed boost. I am very pleased with the speed boost plus increased stability

Things should be faster inside applications.
Go to manage applications... Should load about 5x faster.
Froyo wasn't that big of a deal for me. I'm just glad I'm on Vanilla Android now. Sense was annoying.
Sadly, we already had things pretty fast because of the snappiness of the Snapdragon. I wish Froyo helped 3d graphics and whatnot. =/
I wish somebody figured out how to overclock the Adreno GPU.

CyanogenMod is the way to go! Very stable even though it says experimental I haven't run into any major problems. Major tweaks in speed plus overclocked/underclocked for more speed and battery saving. FPS cap gone, ADW launcher, Sprint bloatware gone, free tethering/hotspot... I can go on and on....

I don't really see much difference myself. Yes some apps have some new menu options etc. but if I knew yesterday what I know today, I would have not applied this update. Not only does it seem like a waste of time but now I no longer have hotspot capability that unrevoked provided for me.
Is there any way to go back to 2.1?

Every aspect of the phone is faster, thanks to the JIT. The amount of memory being used at any given time is allot less, 2.2 utilizes less memory all the time so more is idle and available when needed... The are loads of little tweaks to apps that are nice. Flash is cool, but the main thing about 2.2 is it run way more efficient. If you can not see the difference you are blind!

I don't get the complaints about the 2.2 update not matching their expectations. Where did some of you guys get these fabricated expectations. At no point was there any promise of huge UI changes or anything like that. As a matter of fact there was even a long list of the main parts of the update. Where were the complaints then? I could see if the update promised changes like going from Hero 1.5 to 2.1 But there was no such promise. We were promised a large gain in performance, finally full flash, better camera and video quality, market enhancements,new widgets, app to SD option just to name a short few ALL of which we got. At no time were there promises of huge changes in UI or off the wall type new options. I really do apologize if I came off like a **** (which I may have) but I really am not trying to be a ****. I think the 2.2 update was definitely a nice improvement over 2.1. I still find new things to be happy about the update. Just sit back and enjoy your 2.2 Evo... Android 3.0 will carry a lot of expectations. THAT'S when we can feel either disappointment or complete utter happiness. Just my $.02
