I am not sure WHAT the hell I did to this phone, maybe it is because I rooted the phone? I use the phone's features obviously like the Wifi, and Launcher Pro and Handcent, etc. And of course have some games downloaded and a few other applications that I have on my previous Blackberry Bold.
But lately I will used Advanced Task Killer and kill a few apps and then have about 100M memory remaining. But the letters when I am typing won't even appear on the screen or keep up with my typing. The text messages take sometimes 4-5 seconds to load, it is just really been LAGGING. I am tempted to trade it in for the Droid X that a good friend of mine has because I am almost ready to throw it across the room at times!
I use a weather application with the flip clock, I use Gmail of course, a battery application, Advanced Task Killer, basically all of the Droid applications that I have ran in the past, etc.
So in a nutshell the problems are:
1. The battery life drains from 100% to 40% literally in a few hours of minimal usage. Not from heavy browsing or from talking on the phone for that few hours - just checking the text messages every few minutes, etc. I was okay having a sh-tty battery life phone for all of the features but having to connect it to the charger literally 4-5 times throughout the day seems absurd.
2. The sluggish and lagging operating system. Maybe there is a memory setting that I have wrong or something along those lines - but I am not sure why the phone has slowed down so much since I first activated it just a week ago. The phone's physical keyboard always kept up, Handcent never was a black screen for 5-6 seconds before displaying the texts, etc.
EXAMPLE: just tried sending a picture message to a friend... I typed my friend Crystal's name in the To: field and counted 11 seconds until it finally appeared with her name in my contact list to select. Why the 11-second delay?????
Any thoughts or am I forced, again, to go back to Blackberry. -
