Nexus One: Android 2.2 Froyo turns it into Superphone

By Alan Ng - May 13, 2010

We have some pretty exciting details to bring you now, as it has been reported that the Google Nexus One smartphone performs a staggering 450% faster when running Android OS 2.2 Froyo.

As reported from AndroidCommunity, the people over at AndroidPolice have somehow managed to get hold of a device running the latest software, and have conducted several performance tests, comparing Android 2.2 Froyo with Android 2.1 Eclair.

They have labelled the Nexus One running 2.2 a ‘superphone’, as the handset is already considered to be a very fast phone on Android 2.1 alone. According to their results, the Nexus One running 2.1 without JIT gets about 6.5-7 MFLOPS, but a Nexus One running 2.2 with JIT enabled receives around 37.5 MFLOPS – over four times the performance of Android 2.1.

It is pretty exciting don’t you think? Let’s hope Google give us some availability on Android 2.2 Froyo soon. Let us know your thoughts on the tests.
