I have a well working stock bionic with the latest ota's etc. There is one issue I'd like to solve. Over my bionics life I have rarely needed to do a reset. It would usually last a month or more until something finally went flakey or I just screwed up and let the battery run out. Sometime around the new JB update it got a lot more picky. Now it can start to become very slow switching between apps, turning on or opening menus. Once the new app is running then it can usually run fine, sometimes it can switch back to the old app ok and other times it can stall again. Any app. Going into phone or camera but one of the worst is looking through my installed apps. I may have to try 6 or 8 times before it comes up. The delay in all these cases is usually much longer than my screen timeout, typically 30 seconds. A simple reboot usually fixes it sometimes for a few days sometime for 1/2 day. I did a clear cache but is works the same. I try not to have widgets or background apps.
I'd like to troubleshoot what is going on. Some process or app or situation seems to be squeezing the ability out of the phone as I go along. It seems I am running out of cpu or memory or mem is fragmenting. How do I prove what is the problem?
My main apps are just browsers, dolphin and firefox, reading text posts with a handfull of tabs kept open. Nothing I didnt do more of on the bionic earlier. Sometimes I do youtube, pandora and tunein. Rarely have the nav or gps on. Battery life is similar to always using the extended batt. I charge every night an sometimes during the day if streaming. But I have seen this have the problem without any streaming or many other apps.
Any ideas on what paramaters to watch and how to watch it?
