    Has anyone noticed the lag that ICS introduces into the razr when you have several apps installed? Empty, the phone is great but throw a couple processes at it and it gets jittery. Reminds me of the Droid 1 days....

    I notice this most in 3d games. They used to run like a champ on .185 but are frequently jittery indicating a noticeable drop in FPS on .211.

    Also running autokiller on extreme and its made only a nominal difference

    Well actually running an app killer could be your issue. It kills apps that shouldn't be killed. Android 4.0 is very good at managing itself as far as closing apps that aren't needed.. try deleting your app killer and rebooting your phone, see if it helps :)

    Yeah I thought so too, however the issue persisted without the app killer. I did a hard reset thinking maybe I needed a fresh install. I may just flash .211 again through rsd.

    You could try that.. one other thing, try clearing your cache, both on the phone and through your apps. :)

    I have had ICS installed now for 30+ hours and the lag is ridiculous. Opening apps takes forever! I feel like I am on my Droid 1 again! And yes I Factory reset and wiped cache...twice. But hey at least I have 4G again. So now I can sit around and wait for 20 seconds after pushing a button for it to do something. I'm beginning to understand why people have iPhones.

    Just curious, how waas you Bonic configured? Ever ROM'd or rooted? I applied the ota to a totally stock Bionic. I have been running for about 22 hours now, have noticed no screen transition or app lag at all. Only thing I have noticed is that my battery life is slightly worse. Will likely play with some Smart Actions to see if I can impact that, otherwise I can live with it. Running so well, that I have delayed buyng a Samsung G3 and will wait for the G4

    My bionic is very responsive after ics. My battery life is the same or a bit better. I've had ics since yesterday morning and I'm very pleased.

    Because they like smaller screens, inferior hardware, and being locked down by Apple's restrictive interface?

    But in all seriousness, you shouldn't be having issues with it. You installed it via the OTA?

    You may also want to install something like 'OS monitor' to see if you have a process that is taking most of the CPU

    Never rom'd or rooted. Just bizarre how some people have major issues with this phone and others do not. Same phone, same hardware.

    I also experience pretty bad lag. Not all the time but when it happens it's very bad.

    I have lag and redraws too.. I'm trying different things. The Droid community, no doubt in my mind, will figure it out eventually, if I am yet unsuccessful. Take a look at the developer tools in the menu section..might be something to tweak there.

    Found a fix! Please go to settings>developers options>transition animation scale and turn it off or .5. Same thing with windows scale.
    The phone is now working properly and speedy. HUGE difference!
