    Question Apps take longer to open (about 1/2 a second) on 4G but open instantaneously on WIFI!

    I have the verizon version.

    This is happening to most of the apps like Clock, Chrome Browser, Facebook, Email, Yelp etc


    When I click on their icons to open them, nothing happens for 1/2 a second (it makes me think may be I didnt press correctly) and then the app opens.

    I noticed that this is not happening on the Sprint version of the phone that my co-worker has.

    Is this because of the Wifi Offloading that Verizon tries to do? Do others have a similar issue? How do you fix it?

    This is typical on Verizon with the bloat ware killing the processor. Root and run a non bloat rom :-)
    bump and run....

    I would also switch to Firefox for web browsing. A much faster and kills adds on web sites if you use the plug-ins.

    I think you will find that delay may be just getting 4G going as it drops off when there is no activity.
