    The Big Question, what causes the menu lag?

    Hey guys. This question has been bothering me for some time now. What is the real reason behind the menu lag? On the iPhone, there is ABSOLUTELY NO LAG. On the Droid, its pixelated almost, and it makes the phone look insuperior. I'm in a constant competition to beat the iphone freaks at my school and the menu doesn't help. I personally think that it may be because of the widgets, but I may be wrong.

    I noticed it on 2.0 but I haven't had it happen once on 2.0.1.

    I see you're a former Storm person. I think people who have had the Storm are far less critical of this phone and appreciate it more then even someone who has never used a smart phone.

    Thing is, I'm appreciative of this phone. I can code in freaking Java and not some stupid X-Code or whatever like mac.

    I have used/owned an iPhone and have also enjoyed it. I was just wondering why the menu was like this on this phone.

    What menu ... I don't see a menu. There is a tool bar at the top and a container for apps, but I am not sure what you are calling a menu.

    You are correct sir. The storm was my first "smart" phone and I guess I didn't know any better.The Droid is light years ahead of Storm 1 and probably Storm 2 as well. I didn't even consider that an option. MY wife is getting a free iPhone from AT&T for renewing her business contract and asked me if I would wanted it under the condition I cancel my Droid. I couldn't stop laughing at her. I know she meant well and I still love her.

    System resources vs. software optimization. The Droid might have the resources, but Android is still evolving to use them as efficiently as possible. Plus running applications will always add some overhead, even when their not in use. This is expected (but not desirable by any means) of a phone that can multitask in this day and age. Using a task killer smooths it out quite well though.

    2.0.1 is a good step forward in bringing Droid performance to impressive levels.
