Android 2.2 Froyo Update: Problems after installing

Some particularly worrying news to report to our readers now, as it has been reported that the recent OTA update to Android 2.2 Froyo on the Nexus One handsets was released premature.

As reported from Phandroid, Nexus One owners were surprised a few days ago, when they found out that the update to Froyo was available on their handset just days after Google’s I/O event.

But it turns out that the update, also available from Google’s website, was removed shortly after and now reports are suggesting that the premature update could cause problems for your handset.

Noted issues following installation of the 2.2 update include battery life, faulty voice controls, and a lack of features that were meant to be ‘advertised’ as coming upon release.

How do you feel about the fact that you may have an ‘unfinished’ update on your handset? Have you noticed any of the problems listed above after installing?

    I did a recent android system update (last night) on my samsung intercept and just before it was done updating it stopped for like 10 minutes with only an inch left, then it gave me a red triangle, went to a weird screen, I pressed reboot. it rebooted and froze on the second samsung screen. I see most of the posts here are from a while ago, but this seems like the same problem because I never got a prompt to update it until last night. I called sprint and they said it was a widespread problem.. is there any fixing this or am I just out of a phone because I followed an update prompt?
