How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget says:

As with every prior release since 1.5, Android 2.2 is a collection of minor tweaks -- there's nothing in Froyo that screams "revolution" when taken alone. But perhaps more than any version before it, 2.2 could prove to be greater than the sum of its changes, simply because it directly addresses a fistful of annoyances that could've easily been keeping Android-powered hardware out of many would-be buyers' hands. In other words, Android 2.2 is going to be the most usable Android yet -- now, the onus is on manufacturers to deliver hardware to match, and if phones like the EVO 4G are any indication, they're likely up to the challenge.
