So what is the big difference please tell us. It must be fantastic because my Fascinate seems to work pretty good other than the battery draining quickly. Please do tell us about it
Wifes Ally was updated to 2.2 last week. Wow, what a difference it made in that phone. With 2.1 it was barely functional but now it is a pleasure to use. Can't wait to see how it changes the fascinate when it releases, if it ever does! Still don't understand why Verizon can't or won't give us a date for release. Still waiting to use my car dock and desk dock for something other than a $100 charger.
The LG Ally was released on May 13, 2010. The Froyo update starting pushing out to customers about a week ago. That is 8 months from release to getting the system update to Android 2.2 (Froyo).
The Samsung Fascinate was released on Sept 9, 2010. That about 4 1/2 months ago. If you don't the Froyo update on the Fascinate by end of May 2011, ask why you don't have Froyo at that time.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
besides the launch date difference, this phone is not an ally, it's not a droid x, it's not any of the phones that currently have 2.2. it's even a different phone from EVERY other galaxy S phone. because of this, you can't argue X phone has froyo, so why doesn't mine with any kind of legitimate argument.
Sorry, I meant to say surf the web. My wife has 2.2 on her X. We compared our phones at supper when we were waiting for our meal and I was shocked what a difference it is between 2.2 and 2.1. 2.2 is so much more user friendly and the web sites work like they should.
Just an FYI, a build of Froyo for the Fascinate has leaked out... so, it IS being worked on.

Your gf/bf, wife/husband, or lover (whatever you choose) should be sexy not a phone. Phone should be functional.
I also compared my brother-in-law Incredible with Froyo vs. my Fascinate and Quadrant test on Incredible finishes a good 1.5 minute sooner than on Fascinate and that application tests everything from CPU, Memory, I/O, 2D, to 3D graphics. Incredible with Froyo rated at 1,100 and Fascinate only at 850 That is 250 point difference. Just to give you an idea what that point difference means, original Droid (circa December 2009) with Eclair (2.0) was rated at 610 which is 240 points difference.
So now you can imagine what Froyo will offer to Fascinate (if we will ever see it) in regards to performances alone and forget about flash.
