Many Samsung Vibrant owners are probably rejoicing with the news that the popular phone has finally received a long-awaited update from Android 2.1 to Android 2.2. And there’s no doubt about it: In addition to adding desirable features such as WiFi calling and Adobe Flash compatability, Android 2.2 is faster than Android 2.1 on the Vibrant. However, how much faster is “faster”?

Wirefly set out to find the answer to that question. We first tested a Samsung Vibrant running Android 2.1, using two free and widely available benchmark tools: Quadrant and Smartbench 2010. We next upgraded the Vibrant to Android 2.2, then re-ran the Quadrant and Smartbench 2010 tests. You can see the tests running, as well as the results, by clicking on the video to the right. The bottom line? Android 2.2 makes the Samsung Vibrant faster in some ways, but a little slower in others – at least according to the tests that Wirefly performed.

The Samsung Vibrant is available at a great price from Wirefly.
