from Stock Froyo, to CM6, to New ROM
I've waited for HTC to remove the 30 fps cap for the longest time. I remember when I saw the droid incredible on Verizon, I thought that was super smooth. So I waited for the EVO 4G on sprint to come out and expected similar results.
Of course, I was met with disappointment when I saw the device in action, and it just didn't "wow" me like the droid incredible did. But I went ahead and got it anyway. There was just something off about the phone, compared the droid incredible on Verizon. It wasn't until someone pointed out that the EVO 4G had a 30FPS cap, that made me realize what that problem was!
So I waited for a few months and I decided I couldn't wait anymore: I needed to root. This 30 cap was a pain in the ***... (for me at least) and I just didn't like how sluggish the UI was when scrolling through screens.
I decided to go to CM6, and BOY what a difference. This was the phone I expected! Though it wasn't as stable as the stock EVO 4G with Sense, I was happy. Everything was super smooth scrolling, games were running fast, I couldn't be happier. Then a few days ago, they announced the 30 fps cap was removed with OTA updates... Great. I mean I love CM6, but I also wanted 4G, since I'm paying 10/mo for it.
I unrooted the phone, and installed all the updates, download all my apps, and... Wow this phone is slow again. I couldn't believe it. Sense has a lot of crap in it that made android slow! my CM6 had ADWLauncher, and it blew away sense! it was amazing.... But... oh well, beggars can't be choosers...
