    When was the last time you power cycled?

    Other things you can try include:

    - Going into recovery and wiping cache
    - If running Ice Cream Sandwich go into your apps, and disable any bloatware. You may have to uninstall updates before seeing the disable button
    - Go through your downloaded apps, and uninstall anything you don't use anymore
    - You can download an app called Fast Reboot. This usually speeds up my Bionic.

    Also you might look into an app like history eraser... I use one..just to keep clutter down.
    But i agree with tjk...

    I wouldn't call it a task killer. It goes through the motion of rebooting your device without having to wait for the phone to start up. It was fairly popular with the OG DROID on GB.

    Fast reboot won't have any negative effects on my phone right?
    And its only the icon, there are no settings or anything?

    Does fast reboot also close any programs that might not be in use or anything like that? Almost like a task manager but not exactly like i know that it reboots all apps but it seems like it closes some as well
