Default is your screen smaller in android 2.2? - 03-05-2011, 08:57 PM

hello all,


I'm new here so bear with me.

Is it me, or does everyone lose about one square inch of screen space on the Streak 5,
after the official upgrade (to 2.2) through Dell's link?

Around the edge I have approx. 1/8" of space that was being used by 1.6 which is now dark. I haven't taken a ruler out to measure, but it appears smaller than before 2.2


What do you other owners think?

Regards,

Streaker

Nope, same size as always.

Nah, that black boarder has always been there - it's not on the picture on the box the streak came in, but the box lies

This brings us onto my wishlist for the 'Streak 2' - I'd really like that margin, and the bevel, to be shrunk, so a 6" screen can be used instead of a 5" screen, inside the same formfactor.
