    One thing from running a few tests is the number of apps you have on your system whether in use or not has a direct effect on how much it bogs down these D1s. Even with a sep app/swap sd parts. As I loaded the last update of SD10rc3 I only reloaded just the apps I actual use on any kind of reg basis. The rest I simply store the .apk in my apps folder I created on my SD card. Then if ever I need them its a 30 second process and I am up and running. I find this better for me then trying to do a net download of the apk as there are times I am without data connection where I travel and its faster regardless.

    I have noticed a big effect on lag issues. Further I have my D1 scheduled to do a reboot each night while I sleep and its on the charger. I am running a 32g class 4 SD running both an ext4 apps and a 128mb swap partition.

    Another thing is that some installed programs even thought they are on the SD cards ext4 apps part and tech not running I think they must have some effect on a service that is running or something to that effect as the more you have at a point it starts to effect perf. I of course could be way off on this but its a SWAG.

    I actually havent tried it. I just feel like there isnt much needed for the Gnex. It has a lot of ram already and you will be amazed of how much apps can run in the background simultaneously. And I would recommend Wug's root toolkit over at galaxynexusforums. Running AOKP 4.0.4 running awesome :biggrin:

    When the first time I tried it, which was last Sunday (the day I picked it up) it looked sooo HD. It looked like a print under the screen. As soon as I got it, I was actually kind of afraid to root it lol. It just felt too good to be even need to be rooted but then I decided to do it or else I'll get bored of it unless im constantly flashing a new rom every weekend or so.

    Look at the bright side, at least your not a getting a Bionic. Lol. The forums for it seem so dead. I think the OG forums were more alive than it.

    But again, another 2 months is just too long.

    Whats is so bad about the bionic? I dont get it I have one and it is probably the best smart phone i ever owned. I rarely ever have issues. What the battery dies too quick? All smart phones die quick aside from the maxx or extended battery. But seriously for less then a hundred dollars u can get a rezound or bionic.
