I used Droid phones ever since the first one came out, until my last phone, which was an iPhone 4. I was reluctant to go over to Apple, but I thought I'd check it out. After two years of that, I tired of their restrictiveness and attitude and decided to come back to the fold. Now, though, I am regretting it. I am having problems with my Droid RAZR HD that I never had with my iPhone 4.
My hope is that there is a fix for these issues, or something that I can do better, but searching the forums hasn't been helpful. The issues are minor, I suppose, but really aggravating. These are the two that bug me the most.
1. Any data or wifi activity interrupts my music. This is not even streaming music, and is not just a temporary pause. If I am listening to WinAmp (or other apps I've tried) and I get a text message, or a facebook notification, or if GPS updates in the background, or if I open Chrome, or go to a website, my music player will stop playing music and have to be restarted at least 70% of the time. This problem is even worse if I am listening to streaming music or podcasts (e.g. Pandora, Spotify, Stitcher). I don't run a lot of apps, just what I'm currently using and the bloatware that we can't get rid of without rooting. I use microSD card and neither it nor my phone are close to full.
2. It's just plain slow, at least half the time. This day an age, you should be able to activate the screen and immediately punch in your security code. More often than not, my Droid hesitates and I have to retype the code. Sometimes it takes 5 - 20 seconds just to log in. It's like my phone stutters or is high half the time.
If anyone has tips or recommendations, they would be very welcome!
