    The past several days my normally stable bionic has been laggy, and slow to load. Speed test seems near normal. Anyone else...

    Mine is running well. I get two bars 4g and my average speed is between 10 and 25 mbps up and 4 and 7 down.

    Have you done a battery pull or turned the Bionic off to reboot?

    Its weird because although my bionic is running great and I can't pinpoint anything in particular, earlier I was thinking the same thing. That something just didn't feel quite right. Still works great tho

    Exactly the same for me. I did a virus scan and cleared the cache in recovery but there's still something going on. I think it may be a recently updated app maybe?

    Exactly- I cannot put my finger on it... something is off. This actually happened right before and during the soak test last time.... My speeds are great, but FB is laggy, Weather bug is laggy, some of my games - the timing is off.... and my bionic has been great except that one other time.

    I am wondering if some of the programs were updating to run with the update we haven't gotten yet.... like they released theirs before VWZ...

    Yes I've dropped it=== an unexpected battery pull and rebooted- sadly nothing changed!

    Obvious questions, but, are you rooted? Are you using a ROM? Are you on .902?

    Data on mine was very solid after 902, but lately has been very erratic. Even when on wifi. Wifi goes gray or 3g/4g indicator disappears and cell strength goes gray and I'm without data. I can be just feet away from my router when this happens...

    My reception, even with wifi, has also been poor.

    My reception has been perfect- 4 bars of 4g. I may have noticed something subtle but nothing like that

    Thank You!!

    I just got my first smartphone (yes, I came out of the dark ages), and was thinking of taking it back. Then I came upon this thread. I really like the phone, but like other posters, found it to be lagging and the wifi goes in and out. After reading this, I know there is hope.:icon_ lala:

    Unrooted stock .902 and I love this phone but you're not alone. Simple things like swipe to unlock and screen switching seem to lag. Also voice searches in Google time out even when my phone has full bars on 4g. Nothings seems wrong it just doesn't seem right at the same time.

    I turned off message location service in the fb menu that must have been turned on with a fb update. I also turned off another third party locating service in the main menu. I think it is better today... I know those settings were not on earlier. I'm hunting for more hidden changes.

    I was getting the lagginess and force closes alot too. Funny enough the only time I did not get 5-10 data drops a day was on 901, then like an idiot upgraded to 902 and got data drops again. I also noticed lately with all the bugginess my battery was lasting only maybe 8 hours with moderate usage. Last night I upgraded to 905 and have not yet seen a data drop (crosses fingers) but also 905 doubled my battery life coming from 902. Phone seems alot snappier and more bug free. Maybe I should stick to unreleased updates as those seem to work the best for me.

    No reception issues here, but I have experienced a few laggy instances where it would get temp stuck between screens.
    Nothing a battery pull didn't fix.
    Look for any new apps pulling down data too.

    I'm on eclipse 2.2 now and my bionic has never been this fast. No lag,4 bars of 4g, crazy good battery life, beautiful UI and abnormally fast speeds. I think maybe I just had my stock ROM weighed down by all the shiit I've collected on there since day one
