Which of the Android upgrades is the most significant milestone, in ur opinion??

1.0 to 1.5
1.5 to 1.6
1.6 to 2.1
2.1 to 2.2
2.2 to 2.3
2.3 to 4.0

Personally I think that 2.1 to 2.2 is more significant, huge speed increase and supports for many other things such as Flash, what do u think??

I'd have to say 2.3 to 4.0. Android has really "grown up" during that period and it finally shows an actual red line for the future of Android.

Yes ur right, but i still think that 2.1 to 2.2 is a huge step in the development history, even greater than 2.3 to 4.0 as 2.2 featured something that iPhone cannot match, and it is the first time for that

I think definitely 2.3- 4.0.
Because 4.0 is going to be the tip of the iceberg to what could be coming in 4.X.X.

pre-4.0 android for me was something that i would use but not care too much about, it carried out its mule-job on my phone and no more. disliked its stitchy-patchy implementation and amateurish design. it sure had all the features that ics has, but it was carelessly stuffed into the phone, disregarding its specifics. then ics came and they've made it with so much love for detail, it was tailor fit to run on my phone, it almost hovered above the amoled screen it was conceived for. the patchyness was gone, whereever i went it felt like one cast, the design was thought-through, minimalistic, elegant and sleek. that's when i started to care about android. as always, the sum is more than it's parts. even bada has features but to bring it all together, hardware, software, modern design, usability - it's an achievement for sure. ---only thing that sucks, it was ignored by the manufacturers. they either skipped it or destroyed it by disfiguration.

My first Android phone ran Eclair. It was not what I expected it to be because I'd heard brilliant things about it. Updated it to Froyo as soon as I could and found it much better. I'm running Gingerbread at minute, but think 2.1 to 2.2 is the biggest milestone so far. My mind will probably change when I have an ICS phone though...

My first android was a 1.5 so, then the step to 2.1 was big. but the change to 4.0 now with updates is even bigger. And i like it even more, its just great !

Totally this.

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), most people on here did not have to deal with 1.6


2.1 (or 2.0) was when android started to look somewhat presentable.
