    Hi to all!
    Everytime I update apps through Google Play, the phone becomes very slow and even unresponsive and, many times, I even have to reboot it.
    Anyone has the same problem?

    You may want to check how much storage you have left and delete apps you rarely or never use. Keep in mind, idle apps may be using ram as well.

    Perfectly normal. Especially, if you are updating a bunch of apps at once. All of them are competing for processor time and disk access. These phones work just like "regular" computers.

    Ok, thanks for your answers! What bothered me was that phone stayed slow and unresponsive for a while even after updating apps.
