I was using Home++ and at first it felt fine, but eventually the lag got to me and I uninstalled it. Home++ uses like 40k memory while the largest thing I use now only uses like 22k.

Uninstall the Task killer and see if it improves. Not like us Droid users really need them anyway.. YES you can easily argue this point, but in most cases.. task killers slow down the performance of this phone as well as drain the battery. I had ATK Pro and ended up getting rid of it for this very reason.

This.
Android is linux. Linux handles resources well. Just because it is in memory doesn't mean it's using CPU cycles. If it needs memory, it will free some itself. If it makes you feel better, keep the task killer. At least give yourself a day or two without one and test it out.

Edit.
I was wondering what was up when Moto pulled the documentation for 2.1. It'll happen, but probably more like March, which was what the expected date was anyway.

why did the browsers on my droid, eris, annd a friends nex 1 become slow after getting down to 25 megs then? And why does it al of a sudden get faster after a reboot or task killl? Amd it's not just thhhe browser, the whoe phone starts to lag.
post #239 of 1529
As far as the Task-Killer debate goes. You're both partly right. Yes the android OS will free up memory and handle things well. But the problem is how low android lets the memory get before it goes into action. It seems to me that it will let the phone drop to around 30K RAM, which is enough to make things look not as smooth. That's about it. It isn't really laggy. Everything still gets done just as fast. It's just choppier. It probably helps to disable animations. I'd probably recommend having a task-killer, but not one that runs all the time killing processes.

It'd like to see how android 2.1 fairs on the droid since it is more visually pleasing. I hope it doesn't get really choppy with the animations.

Im running Advanced Task Manager and dont see any issues with it on my phone. I usually just keep it closed and use the widget/icon on my homescreen to end things. I normally only end them if I know I had A LOT of apps open.
