    I've had this thing for about a week now, and it's just so slow. The Droid 1 was faster than this out of the box. Flicking through the app drawer is LAGGGGGYYY. Texting is laggy, everything is just slow. Maybe it's just me, but I hope 2.2 makes this thing as fast as it's claimed to be.

    Is laucherpro faster than stock? Because this is irritating.

    LauncherPro is much faster than stock. It's free -- try it.

    I used it on D1. Curious about how it runs on this. Maybe I'll try it.

    Okay, launcherpro really isn't any different. Still very sluggish.

    Maybe I got a defective phone or something, because I am not impressed with this thing.

    either that or you installed something you shouldnt have because you should be getting pretty much no lag

    Agreed.. no lag here, the only latency i've seen was with camerazoom fx which is a resource hog itself... this was right after I rooted, so I killed the app and rebooted just to make sure it wasn't the SU app or something gone wrong in the root.. after rebooting it was fast as ever..

    Mine is not rooted. I have the normal apps that I've always used on the D1.

    Did you change the battery profile to performance? Mine is just as snappy as my droid 1 running at 1.1 ghz. It was slow out of the box because moto had it in low power mode which I had to change in the settings. No, the X isn't slow.

    I just upgraded to the x about a week ago, and literally EVERYTHING is much faster and snappier on the x...

    Emitted from X.
