Why is my phone slow?
Saturday 08th of December 2012
Hey all,Recently I have noticed that my phone has been really slow. I am running CM10 nightlies with Franco Kernel (1420Mhz). I chalked it up to the fact that I have been dirty flashing for a while.When I run AnTutu benchmark my scores seem on par with what it should get (a score of around 8000). But in daily use, the phone is slow. It seems to stutter and hiccup (my technical description) Typing is especially a chore. Once I start typing, it might take 5-6 characters in before text starts to appear. So recently, I was about to flash a new update. I boot into CWM and run a backup. This backup would normally take 5-10 mins. This was my first backup since I noticed my phone being slow. This backup took over an hour. So now I am suspecting that it isn't the Rom but maybe a hardware issue. Any thoughts? Thanks.
Why is my Epic slow?
Friday 21st of January 2011
So I've been running an Epic since early November and I've always been pretty happy with it (particuliarly compared the Moment I replaced), but yesterday my wife upgraded to one and WOW is it faster then mine. Using the same WiFi network, she can open the android market it a matter of 2-3 seconds where my phone it can take upwards of 2 MINUTES! Now, here phone is basically stock and we've installed very few apps over what comes on the phone (nook, ipfob, upgraded the stock apps). Mine, on the other hand, has been running DK28 since it came out. I also use LauncherProPlus instead of touchwiz and I've recently rooted (but I have yet to install a custom kernel). Is it because I have too many apps installed? Is it something about LauncherPro, DK28? The other apps I've "upgraded" now that I'm on 2.2 (gmail, voice search, google search, maps, etc.)? Any thoughts? My reaction is that I've got too much installed (~100 apps in total) with only about 70 MB of free installation space. I would love it if my phone could run like her's. I realize I would get some benefit from ext4, but
performance - Why does my phone slow down after using internet and installing apps?
Monday 30th of January 2012
I have Samsung Galaxy Y. I think that when I use wireless and installing apps, not immediately but after a while the phone slows down considerably.When it happens I must restart and when it turn on, then continues to operate normally.I don't know if this is caused by some applications I have installed or some other problem. When it occurs I try to free RAM memory with Samsung's task manager or fast reboot, but it doesn't help.After I read some of your topics, I don't use task killer anymore. It happens to me two or three times a day!Why my phone slows down, and only turning it off/on seems to solve the issue?
Why is my 4G Hotspot so slow???
Sunday 06th of May 2012
Just added the hotspot feature to my Rezound. My 4G on the phone is blazing fast at 25-30mbps download with 4-6mbps upload consistently. Unfortunately, when I use my laptop through the hotspot, I average about 2mbps download and 4mbps upload. Why is it so slow??? I can't stand it.

Why is my Xtouch X708s tablet slow?
Thursday 08th of August 2013
Ok so I bought an Xtouch X708s. Specs at the bottom of this page: It's considered a cheap tablet but I thought it's genuine, it must run well.But the fact is. it's slow and unresponsive, it can run games, although takes too much time to load and lags sometimes. It runs ICS 4.0.4. I read an article about ICS that says: "According to some experts 1GHz Dual core processors with 512+ Mb RAM are essential. If your phone has less specs than this, don't worry.. You can get custom roms from developers like Cyanogen."I did all I could. factory reset, monitored all apps carefully, root, freeze bloatware, but still it's slow.There are no custom ROMs for this tablet. I'm just curious why is it slow? it's specs are not that horrible right?Is there something I can do? or must I get a new tablet?Thanks a lot

why does my phone charges slow and drains battery so fast?
Tuesday 04th of February 2014
I've bought a new charger but it wasn't samsung. I plugged it on my phone and it charges sooo slow. So then I change the voltage power supply (samsung one) thing.And it charges faster. So then I went to school, (it was 99%)I didn't even use my phone much I only text. So when I come back home, my phone was 10%.Why is my phone like this? And another question, is it bad to have a different voltage with different adapter? (if youre asking whats the voltage and stufff.. Idk what is it..dunno where to look)
Why is my phone so slow to charge?
Monday 19th of May 2014
I have Galaxy S3. So, the day before yesterday, my phone is charging fine(full charger in 2h), then yesterday phone charge so slow, it took 10h or more to full charge. So, today still happen it took 10h or more to go full charge. Nope, the problem is not the charger. Me and my brother have the SAME phone and charger. We share charger. When he charge his phone, it works perfectly fine. Only my phone took 10h or more to full charge. 1) What causes my phone to charge slow? Is it the battery or the phone inside????????? I already tried using my brother battery. I charged my phone for 5 minutes with his battery inside my phone. Yet, it did NOT add any life battery percentage. I believe this all started when I dropped my phone with the charger in the charging port. So, I guess, that what it cause. 2) How much does it cost to get you phone CHARGING PORT fix? Where do get it fix?

My phone usually charges fast. This is my second replacement phone...and this morning it said 30% when it was on the charger for the whole night. So when I went to school I plugged it into my laptop and it decreased after a while when I tried it again, it started charging. Had this problem before but now its taking hours to get up to 50%. Sorry for the long post.
