I love Android and have been a proud Nexus One owner for over a year now. I was also really excited when gingerbread dropped and flashed my phone before the OTA update (who can wait for these things anyway).
However, since upgrading, Gingerbread has not been the bliss that I had hoped for.
The first thing I've noticed is that the new keyboard seems to freeze every other day rendering any app that uses text input unusable. This causes me to have to reboot my phone (or at the very least end the keyboard process).
I also started to notice that since my upgrade my phone will sometimes stop syncing with my work's Exchange server, causing me to miss emails that I used to get while not at my desk (again a reboot seems to fix this). I tried removing this account and re-adding it only for it to continue happening.
After these initial complaints some of my friends, also nexus one owners, have started to report similar issues. One such friend says that his home screen icons will stop displaying leaving him with only his background to look at after pressing the home key. Another friend says that he must reboot his phone every day, at least once a day, due to his keyboard not working.
In general, though, the internet does not seem to have any reports of these kinds of issues outside of my few friends.
Have any other Android users out there noticed these or similar issues with gingerbread? Does anyone know of any possible causes?
