A closer look at new features in Android 2.2 on the HTC Legend
Android 2.2 on the HTC Legend is finally here, but what does that really mean? Yes, Google has implemented quite a few changes in stock Android 2.2, but since the HTC Legend is loaded up with HTC Sense, many of these changes/improvements have been glossed over. HTC has been a bit quiet about that’s new in the Android 2.2 build for the Legend, but fortunately, we’ve been able to dig up a few YouTube videos which should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.
The first video is a quick walk-through of Android 2.2 on the HTC Legend, while the second video shows how Android 2.2 on the Legend stands up to Android 2.1 in a Quadrant benchmark showdown. With a Quadrant score of 853, the HTC Legend won’t be breaking any performance records, but it’s nice to see the numbers jump over 140%.
