Around the time I got 2.2, I guess a few months ago, my has been generally sluggish, with specific things sometimes being very slow. I can't really say it only started since 2.2 came out for sure, but its around that time. Basically I never had these slowdown problems when I had 2.1 or closer to when it first came out when it still had 2.0. (I've had it since launch back in November)
I have 68Mb free on the internal memory, and have 12MB +71MB in 15 normally free in the RAM. With only a few process running like lookout.
The worst noticeable slowdown is the home screen sometimes takes about 8 seconds to load after hitting the home key while in, the browser, market, gmail or almost any app, it sometime seems to happen after leaving.
I use the pattern unlock, and sometime after I put in my correct pattern, that also lags for about 8 seconds and then unlocks the phone.
I know that the droid is old now, with the rate of new android phones coming out every week it seems like, but I'm not really running any different apps since when I first had the phone yet it seems to have these issues, that it never had like 4 months ago
I'm wondering if anyone knows if doing a factory reset then reinstalling some apps and upgrading back to 2.2 would make a significant improvement with these issues, or if there is some kind of App or cleanup that can help with these lag issues.
