    my bionic gets slower and slower

    I'm noticing each day my bionic gets slower. Most apps "stop responding"and nothing I've done seems to help.

    Things I've done:
    Updated to ics
    factory reset
    Cleared the system cache several times
    Developer options have been set to .5x
    Rebooting multiple times each day

    Is anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas on what the issue may be or how to resolve it??

    Thanks!

    There may be an easier solution than this. But I know fxz to a pristine 246 build would do it.

    Sounds like a resource leak. Have you taken a look at the logcat when the phone is sluggish to see if processes are dieing repeatedly?
    If you reboot, does the phone appear ok for at least a while?

    I'm experiencing the same problem. I've done all the same steps as the OP (except setting dev options), but to no avail. For me, a reboot does solve things, at least for a little while.

    I haven't dug into it a whole lot (it's annoying, but not that annoying). I was beginning to suspect my memory card, and was going to try wiping it or putting in another one to see if that helped.

    exact same as OP.. This sux... Had this bionic running so smooth before ICS... Almost every app has to force close or just hangs now... I used to pull this phone out and be able to do anything fast smooth and successful.. now its just a frustrating embarrassment to use...

    Re: my bionic gets slower and slower

    mine hangs up way too much lately.. there are times when I'm opening a few windows on chrome and the phone just reboots itself.... I'm still in ics .232 because I've been lazy to upgrade.. cleared cache and davlik cache many times with an occasional battery pull... at times these processes lag for seconds- opening text messages, clicking the call button, or opening apps

    I haven't factory reset and I wont

    I know there's manual fixes but we should have to do it.. it sucks the phone doesn't work like it should and I haven't tried fixing it because I'm working on getting a note 2 and throwing out this pos

    Mine does (did) this a lot under .232... when I updated to the official ICS, it fixed it immediately... for a time... then it started slowing down again...as an experiment, I FXB back to stock ICS (Official) and didn't install any apps...other than the ones that come with ICS.... worked great for 3 weeks...then started slowing down again. I've recently installed one of the ICS roms based off of the official ICS and again, it worked great for a couple weeks then starting to slow down again. SO I just reflashed, installed all that I wanted...got it set up the way I like, and did a backup... now when it starts to slow down, I restore the backup... pain in the ass, but I do like me a zippy phone. I have about 5 months left before I can update...the only thing that might keep me with the Bionic is all my accessories (yes, I actually like my webtop and car mount) and I'm grandfathered in on unlimited data... if anyone finds a fix, I'd love to hear about it....

    thats probably the long and tedious route I would've went but I'm not looking to dedicate that kinda time right now

    depends on what u need... I personally wouldn't because I have an extended battery on the bionic and the razr wouldn't get me out of work before needing a charge
