    Why is my Droid slower than my Wife's

    I've had the Droid since the day they came out.

    I got my wife a new one about 3 weeks ago.

    I just installed Helix and basically formatted hers so it looks much like mine over 5 screens.

    But from the day she got hers it seems to run almost twice as fast in every respect.

    Any suggestions? (rooting not allowed in this thread).

    They should run the same speed but it may be possible they overclocked the newer ones a little bit above the 550 we are currently running at but i doubt it.

    Do a factory reset on yours, install the same apps as on your wife's Droid , then compare.

    Just a thought, but could it be a specific app causing the lag? We've all seen that before...

    The last thing I want to do is a factory reset and have to re-do my entire Droid - too much work has gone into it.

    I was thinking maybe there was a Cashe or something that may slow it down...

    How frequently does the finance app update? How big are the cache and data files? Does it show on your battery usage stats? The answers could be clues.

    I don't know where to get that information... any help would be appreciated. Finance does NOT update unless I tap the widget.

    Nothing in my Battery Stats is ever unusual.

    Go to Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications and find the finance app. Touch it and in there it will show the cache (which you can clear) and the storage information. Battery usage is in Settings > About phone > Battery usage.

    You can set widget update by opening Finance, then menu->settings. From your home screen you can find data and cache usage by menu->settings->manage applications->finance. I added 10 stocks to my portfolio and it added almost a Meg of cache. Check and report back.
