I really want to like the Droid 2. I'm a big fan of physical keyboards, coming from a BB Curve before my iPhone 3GS, and I like how the Android OS works/gives you freedom. The one problem that is making me consider taking advantage of the ability to return it within 30 days is interface lag. I noticed this phone's interface is much laggier than my iPhone was; the iPhone was definitely more snappy when changing screens, opening apps/pages, unlocking the phone, and switching views from horizontal to vertical and vice versa. It sometimes takes the screen 2-3 seconds (count 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand, 3 one thousand...yes that long) for my phone to unlock. Switching pages or views can take 1-2 seconds. At first I tried to get used to it, but when I was on the go today, trying to text someone, read an email, check the time, and walk across an extremely busy street at the same time...I was getting irritated. I've read a lot of people talk about bloatware and how they hate it, but not how it affects performance. Is my bloatware on my phone taking up really that many precious CPU resources? Another thing I read a lot about was rooting and how just recently a way has been found for the Droid 2. My main reason originally for wanting to do this was to use Titanium Backup which I've heard about. The iPhone sync would backup everything where it was and when I had to restore it went right back into place. Titanium Backup seems to do the same thing so I was interested. However, I know you can remove bloatware through rooting and there may(?) be some performance gains from it. I must admit I am afraid of bricking though and I don't want to screw up my 30 day. Who can give me some heads up on the benefits of rooting? I'm currently running LauncherPro (lag existed before I installed as well...I actually originally installed LauncherPro to try to fix the interface lag). I have nine apps on my homepage with TheWeatherChannel widget, another page with contact widgets and the 4 on/off setting widgets (airplane, BT, wifi, and gps), a page with the LP FB widget and the LP calendar widget, and a page with the LP messaging widget. I've read some people get zero lag who are rooted, but then I see others who are not rooted and are loving the phone without lag...maybe I'm just a little more impatient? My main question really boils down to is the 1-3 second interface lag I experience all the time something I can fix or not? I really do not want to go back to my iPhone, best case scenario would be to make this as snappy as my iPhone and continue to use it. What type of things should I be doing to rid the lag?
