    Extreme Lag

    So I just switched from an Incredible running CM7 to the Droid 3. Aside from the sheer disdain I have for Blur right now (I know people are saying it is much better than previous Blur versions, but this is my first Blur experience and I must say I think it sucks), my phone is EXTREMELY LAGGY.

    Often times, after using an app or looking through my app drawer, it takes 5 to 6 seconds for the home screen to populate. wth??

    Anyone else have an extremely laggy droid 3? With a dual core 1ghz there is absolutely no excuse for this!1



    notes - I tried restoring data from my Inc to the D3 using MyBackup and it did not work - maybe it messed something up?

    I have an animated backgroud. Could this be the culprit?

    This sounds like the same thing that the X2 is notorious for. I have the X2 and it did this until I ran the supercharger script. I believe both phones have the same dual core processors and I think moto isn't utilizing it right. My X2 runs a lot better after supercharging but at times apps just close themselves and other random stuff. You can try looking in the x2 forum for the supercharger script thread. I believe it should work on the d3 also.

    Supercharger script won't work since the DROID 3 hasn't been rooted yet.

    Turn off your screen animations and get rid of the live wallpaper. It should help some

    thanks for the feedback. silly that they would allow two dual core phones to make it to market with such bad lag. perhaps blur is the culprit?

    I got rid of the live wallpaper and started using launcher pro. Not only do i not have to deal with Blur, but the lag seems to have drastically improved. I do encounter a glitch when I turn on the screen by sliding the keyboard out, but i'll go bother federico morales about that

    DROID BIONIC ROOTED

    I had some slow problems the first couple days... then I thought.. all those apps that reinstalled from the market when I synced the phone ... ??? ... so I dumped everything.. started over.. just downloaded the ones that I use frequently.. all the others are still there in the market if I need them "purchased"... why not use the market as app storage for stuff I hardly use anyway..

    Point is... it really helped.. some of those cheap crappy games and stuff were really screwing me over always running in the background and I suspect not playing well with D3 2.3.4

    As of now... no lag... no problems... no freezes.. no force closes.... nice

    Gotta plug Go Launcher EX, free in market. When the latest "update" for the Droid came out the powers made the home launcher laaaaaggggggg. Truth:
    - home replacement app causes original launcher to NOT RUN and is WAY BETTER
    - "they" are dragging Android down so you feel compelled to upgrade continuously obviously
    Do you like uninstallable bloatware?
    It takes about 5 minutes to complain and it's kinda fun. Let's not be complacent!
    Contact Verizon (anonymous w/ fake name if you like)

    I've noticed I have a tiny tiny bit of screen redraw when going back to home but it's not enough to bother me. I loaded the Blur Bookmarks widget at one point and the redraw lag was crazy. Threw the widget in the trash and it was right back to normal. So number of widgets or type of widgets might be a bit slow with the Blur homescreen setup

    Launcher Pro , ADW Launcher/ex and GO Launcher Ex are all good launchers to use, they all rid your phone of almost all transition lag and its alot smoother than Blur (obviously). As far as which one to use, its all on preference, GO launcher and ADW have better theming then Launcher Pro, but LP also has bad ass widget theming. I say try them out and see which you prefer. Personally I like GO launcher.

    I have been really testing what this phone can handle during my 14 day return window. I loaded it up with lots of widgets, apps that update frequently with push notifications and alerts. The killer seemed to be adding a live wallpaper, then I was frequently getting home screen redraws. Sometimes just the Quick Contacts widgets needing to reload contact pics, other times completely blank screen that had to reload all widgets and app shortcuts. The redraws still recover much more quickly than my OG Droid. Switching to a regular wallpaper was a big help, the Forest wallpaper was just using too much memory.

    I'm thinking this is more of a RAM problem than processor problem, really wish they had given this a gig of RAM.
