Phone is a lot more snappy. That is for sure. Only a few things that I have found that do not work.

Cant find this app. Been wanting it for forever. Is the amazon app store different from the marketplace app?

Motorola's 4.3-inch Photon 4G brings Tegra 2, kickstand magic to Sprint (video hands-on)

http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/09/m...tand-magic-to

You know something big is about to go down when you can get the CEOs from two major tech companies to sit down together for lunch. As suspected, today's Sprint / Motorola event, presided over by Dan Hesse and Sanjay Jha, marked the debut of the rumored Photon 4G. The handset packs a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in memory, and pre-installed Gingerbread -- plus, for better or worse, the latest version of Blur. The skinny new smartphone's got front and rear facing cameras (the latter of which is eight megapixels), a dedicated camera button, and micro-USB and HDMI ports, which will hook into a soon to be announced docking device.

The handset is the first from a US carrier to offer up global 4G connectivity, and it's also got 3G support, should you need it (that's CDMA / WiMAX in the US and GSM internationally). Enterprise functionality, traditionally a bit of an oversight with Android handsets, is present too, thanks to business-minded tools built into Blur and increased security, courtesy of the manufacturer's acquisition of 3LM ("Three Laws Mobility" to its friends). Sprint's influence shines through as well, with the inclusion of a built-in active kickstand on its rear, a first for a Motorola device. Flip it open, and the display will automatically switch to landscape mode for optimal viewing.

We managed to get a little hands-on time with the device prior to the announcement, and by and large, the touchscreen and software seemed quite responsive. The handset itself is both skinny and narrow and feels good in the hand, though the smooth back doesn't offer much in the way of traction for those prone to dropping their phones. The buttons on the device were a bit stiff and sunken, though we'll have to hold off on passing judgment on that front, since this is a pre-production unit -- hopefully we'll get out hands on something more final in the near future. The Photon 4G is set to hit Sprint this summer -- an exact date and price point have yet to be announced.

You guys get any updates recently? My buddy with a Droid X said he got one yesterday so I decided to check it out. I guess I've had 2.3 available for my phone for a couple weeks and didn't know lol. It's 160mb tho...holy hell. I'm about 70% through. Says that 1080p video playback will be added for the Atrix and other misc stuff. All I can say is my damn music player better work after this.

Billy I JUST saw this and I should have responded earlier but my phone does that exact same thing. I've downloaded every music player from the market too and it still does the same thing. I think it's a Motorola problem. Like I said above I'm hoping this update fixes it.

Ive had issues with my 3 month old G2x where it will randomly shut down and restart. I called T Mobile and even though my 3 month warranty was expired for about a week, they just sent me another battery

Mine luckily has only shut down on me probably 3 times since February when I got it. A lot of Androids have that same problem it seems.

I'm Installing my update now, taking forever. If it's as nice as my friend tells me I'll probably be on my phone all day

Just installed the update. HO-LY shit. I love this. Everything looks totally different. Runs so much smoother, music app has new features built in, transparent task bar when it's pulled down, can clear individual notifications. That's not even all of it. I can't wait to explore this more.

EDIT: it's stupid, I know but probably one of the neatest things I noticed was when I hit my lock button and the screen turns off it's like how an old tube tv would turn off (from outside to inside)

I was debating switching to CM7 or something else today and I just can't talk myself into it.

I'm still on a custom Froyo rom. Besides some random reboots, it's perfect. Just feels weird to not be on the newest. Also haven't gotten my market update yet.
