    does this happen to anyone else? maybe 3 out of 10 times i will select an app and it will light up (like its about to open) but freeze like that for 2-3 seconds before it actually opens.

    is this a normal glitch of the bionic or is my device defective? should i exchange it?

    I have a couple of questions...

    1) Is it the same apps?
    2) What are the apps names?
    3) What else is running?

    Its normal on mine too! Not positive, but when mine starts acting up like that, I have always checked my app cache and its hitting like 20 MB or so and do a 1 tap clean on it and it works.
    Maybe its a coincidence, but it makes sense to me! "Memory starts filling up, things start laggin".
    So yea...mine does that too!

    You can use Task Manager or something like that.

    At the same time, the Android OS doesn't work like Windows in terms of memory. A runaway app can slow things down and drain your battery, but don't just kill apps as the OS may start them up again.

    There are many, but I downloaded ( 1 tap cleaner) from the market! Works pretty good!
