How do you android people deal with the lag? - Page 6

post #51 of 60
Thread Starter 
Update: I finally managed to get a custom rom on the phone. The rooting process was complicated but I never bricked the phone (but did have to pull the battery a few times, as well as some close calls)

Now that it has DasBAMF on it, it's way better. I've even overclocked it to 1.2 GHz.

I can't see how anyone puts up with the jerkiness of the stock software. It reminds me of the drones who buy eMachines and put up with a dozen toolbars on their IE.

I found it just to be the 2.2 software, after getting 2.3 (And subsequently CyanoGen) it was a lot smoother. The OC was good too, but battery life

My Samsung Captivate is pretty fast. I never really see any lag.

Yep i had a HTC Desire HD which ran stock and without a custom rom/root the Android OS was laggy . (Amongst other issues i had with the phone )

Your pretty much forced into using a custom rom with most Android phones to make the experience good.

One thing about the Iphone 3GS/4 is that it works straight out of the box no need to tinker or fiddle, and for the majority of users this is great.

The only reason to even bother with a android phone is if your a big fan of tinkering , fiddling and spending all day customizing your phone.

If you don't fit the above category than a Iphone will do the job well for most people.

Youre wondering why your iphone was so smooth with a 600mhz and less RAM? Because iOS is so closed source, apple doesnt need all this processing power to run its iOS.

Do some research about rooting and installing ROMS. Read tutorials a few times over so you know what to do beforehand. xda-developers is a great site for practically any android phone.

Heck, I've been using the HTC Evo 4g since it was released and its amazing still! Im not even using it to its full potential... Im running a rom called MIUI, which is a completely rebuilt OS mixing Android and iOS together. Its so smooth and fast stock, Im able to underclock my Evo to 729mhz from the original 900mhz- better battery too

Hey, it's just like PC manufacturers installing a bunch of useless junk along with Windows.

One of my friends had almost the exact same problem as you on the TB. He returned it and got a new one, and now it's super smooth. Try returning maybe?

That's just Sense UI. Android phones run much better without Manufacturer UIs. You should try putting a custom rom like CM7 or MIUI on there and trying it out. Sense is one of the first things I try to get rid of when I buy a HTC phone.

Just a tip about using task/app killers. Really... you should not. Android doesnt run apps like windows does. An task/app killer removes the program from its stored memory (not the application itself). This has no effect on performance or battery life. Android works by leaving apps in its memory and switches them out based on usage or capacity needed for what you are doing. If you kill the task/app you then make Android re-load the program back into memory when you use it again, which takes more battery and processor power.

Stopping a running app is different from killing it. Sometimes you need to kill it, if it is glitched or bugged... etc...

So while having an app killer is a good thing constantly using it is not providing you any benefit to power saving or performance. It is ok to have apps loaded in memory even if they are not running. It's how Android works.
