Title says it all. I can confirm that gingerbread renders everything in gorgeous 32-bit colors!!!!!!

For example, the weather channel app would look like crap, now it looks great.

Wallpapers look STUNNING.

Press and hold the home button to open the recent used apps menu, notice how the black blackground is blending in so nicely. on 2.2 it looks like crap.

Edit: Screenshots up. XDA Adds a lot of compression to both photos but you can still tell the difference.

I don't understand why this required Gingerbread to resolve it? but i'm looking forward to no more color banding in wallpapers either way

Yes, I was running gingerbread alpha 3. It's still pretty buggy and with a lot of things missing so I just went back to stock 3.70.

My eyes

I also just wanted to clarify that our EVOs always had this capability, but only Android 2.3 renders everything in 32-bit color. It's all software.

Show me something that actually says it's really in 32-bit color and I'll believe it. Or you can post the pictures you had posted earlier somewhere else so it doesn't compress them.
