Try that Buzz Launcher Jimmy. I was blown away by that. Not really my cup of tea but the different home screens you can download on that are just insane. I didn't even know Android was capable of some of that stuff.... May not help with your lag, but at the very least, you might appreciate Android a bit more. And I assure you Jimmy, all the modern Android Phones have "arrived". There is no lag at all in any of the recent phones that I've seen. And you did see Kit Kit has been officially announced? Maybe that will bring you back to us.
