Gallery bit-depth downgrade in 2.1

2.1If a 2D graphics slowdown after updating your Droid to 2.1 didn’t bother you, well…I applaud you. But more bad news? Because the gallery in 2.1 is entirely different from the boring old app in 2.0.1, the new one being made by Cooliris, it turns out you just downgraded image quality from 24-bit to 16-bit. But you know what? It’s really not that big a deal to me. I like the new effects. And like IntoMobile points out, we’ll probably see the 24-bit images restored in Android 2.2. Check out some super technical analysis over at DisplayMate.
