Do a hard reset, the update it to the new gingerbread, other than a few cosmetic tweaks, they only fix gaming issues. Don't fix the real problems, but your gaming will be better.
At my wits end. Why is my LG Esteem so slow compared to Wife's stock Esteem?
Tuesday 27th of November 2012
Hi there, Long time lurker & Android user, first time poster to this forum. BackgroundI bought my Esteem in December of 2011. My wife bought hers in January of 2012. Right from the start, my Esteem was having the random reboot problem, while my wife's was not. The ProblemAs a result of my random reboots (and because I'm a nerd), I rooted my Esteem and have been playing around with various roms, kernels, and Overclocking with SetCPU over the past year. The problem is, my wife's bone stock phone is still noticeably faster than mine. It's not faster in benchmark tests as my overclocked processor kills hers, but it's faster in the to day usage. For example, with both phones on a fresh reboot, and doing the best I can to touch the "contacts" button on both phones at the exact same time, her's comes up instantly with no delay, while mine has a very slight lag to it. It's not much but it's noticeable in the day to day usage. I can only describe it as her phone registers the touch and opens the app instantly, while mine registers the touch, **thinks for 50 milliseconds** then o
internet VERY SLOW
Monday 05th of March 2012
hey guys, im a proud owner of a new galaxy note, im still in the process of getting used to Android from my apple iphone (i owned all generations of the iphone up to the 4) i am content with the phone, however is anyone else noticing VERY SLOW internet loading times? i mean come on, i havent been so frustrated with loading times on any of my devices (laptop, iphone, ipad, etcetc) for the past couple years. i know the specs of this phone is supposed to be better than an iphone 4, however why is the internet so slow? i doubt it is my internet connection because i compared and made couple webpage loading times with my iphone 4. (I am running the tests on my wifi) the green loading bar takes forever to reach the max. i say estimated about 5~15 seconds more than my iphone when i ran a few tests. also, do you guys notice the 4g and the 4g LTE signal on your phones? im not too sure, but i dont think i have seen a "4g LTE" signal as of yet.. Please reply to this thread as i would like to know how others are dealing with their phones!im hoping that my phone is a defected one so tha
file transfer - Why is sftp (client) so slow on Android?
Wednesday 17th of October 2012
I've encountered this across numerous Android clients on several devices and I don't understand it. Why is sftp so slow? For instance, transferring a single large file from my laptop vs my Nexus 7 on my home LAN I am getting a factor of 20 difference in speeds. The Nexus 7 is getting about 250-300KBps while the laptop is getting 5-6MBps. The server (debian sid) is connecting to a 802.11n router via a wired connection and both wireless devices are supposedly n (though the laptop reports 150Mbps connection and the Nexus 7 only 65Mbps. I know there's overhead and interference and whatnot but this just doesn't make sense to me. Is there some trick here or some way to speed up the transfer? I'm even willing to switch protocols if it would help. This problem has been floating around for a while but I haven't seen any constructive solution.The fact that >4.0 forces MTP which still has flaky linux support makes this issue all the more pressing.
Why is wi-fi so slow on mobile devices?
Monday 05th of September 2011
I recently changed carriers, and in the process went from a Windows Mobile smart phone to an Android. I've been intending to keep the WinMo device around to use on wi-fi networks as available; among other things, this device has a better camera than my new phone. I also thought it made sense just to have a spare device just in case. If I ever have to have my new device replaced or repaired, at least I could still use the old one to check my email or listen to radio streams via my household router. Or so I thought. Because whenever I try to access anything on the Internet this way, I can't do it. The progress bar just hangs...and hangs...and hangs...and eventually times out. I thought that might be happening because there's some blocking mechanism that prevents the device from accessing any kind of network, unless there's a currently active contract with the carrier. I really don't understand yet what "locking" is--is this it? But regardless: when I tried to do the same thing with my new Optimus, I got the same thing--nothing would load, at least not within a reasonable amo

Why is new S5 so laggy?
Wednesday 24th of June 2015
Hi all, I was recently posted abroad by work and received a new Galaxy S5 for the duration of my stay. I was excited to finally experience Android but my impressions so far have been less than stellar. I'm coming from an iPhone 6 and compared to that the S5 is very slow and laggy. Applications such as Chrome, Twitter, Facebook are taking up to 3 seconds to open where the screen just freezes. Scrolling in Google Maps isn't smooth, instead the picture moves in small increments. It's not unbearable, but nor is it a smooth and enjoyable experience. And it also seems really odd that Google Maps should work better on an iPhone than on an Android..... I've deleted all the bloatware than came with it, disabled all the apps I can't delete yet don't use. I'm updated to the latest version of Lollipop.... In the last few days I've actually started to just use it as a personal hotspot so I can use my iPhone 6 here without roaming charges which is a pretty stinging indictment of the S5, but I honestly can't be bothered to use it for everyday use in given its current performance Have I just been g
