Samsung : Captivate Is Sluggish / How To Speed Up?

Nov 16, 2010

I got the Captivate a week ago. It seems like a lot of apps take forever to load (Facebook, Yahoo Mail, Craigslist, etc). Someone said something about disabling syncing features on apps, but I'm not sure where that is. Also, how can I uninstall the AT&T apps?

Motorola Droid X :: Phone Felt Sluggish / Shutter Speed On Camera Can Be Slow At Times?

Jun 25, 2010

I've read a couple of reviews on the Moto X and they all say that at times the phone felt sluggish and that the shutter speed on the camera can be slow at times. I know that "at times" doesn't mean it's a slow processor but vs. the incredible which is being touted as the phone that blows through any task with ease I was wondering which phone has better performance.

Samsung Captivate :: Display Response Speed Is Low

Jul 19, 2010

After 18 months of dealing with Apple's crap, I switched to an Android. I picked up the AT&T Captivate yesterday at a store in another city (50 miles away) since my local store wasn't open on Sunday. I love this phone. The display is crisp, the response speed is smoking and surprisingly, I like the touch whiz interface, so far. I am having an issue however. When I left the store, I was on EDGE, and all was fine. Drove home on the EDGE network and had EDGE in town yesterday. When I got home I setup my wireless network on it and the web was crisp. Played for a bit, then went to bed. This morning, when I left for work and left range of my home wireless, The phone didn't pick up the EDGE network. ie. I have no EDGE connection. I've rebooted the phone and still no EDGE. (3G doesn't exist in this 1/2 horse town...sigh) I got EDGE pretty much everywhere with my I phone 3G in this crappy little town.

Samsung Captivate :: How To Move Media Files To An SD Card Speed Up Phone?

Aug 27, 2010

Looking to speed up my Samsung Captivate a bit. Seems like every since I loaded it up with some music and movies that it is slower. Any truth in that? Considering getting an SD card to hopefully help with that but not sure if it is just my imagination. Anything else for performance tweaking would be great too.

KitKat 4.4 :: Samsung Galaxy S4 Being Sluggish?

Apr 4, 2014

I upgraded my firmware to 4.4.2 kitkat and now my GS4 seems to run abit sluggish. I get some delay when entering and exiting apps and also some delay when you hold the home button to open the task manager. Also when I type sometimes what I type takes awhile to come up and also takes some time for the phone to react to the buttons I press. Is this an issue with the new update. I have the Rogers version of the Gs4. Also if I have to end up restoring my phone, software because I used Samsung Kies in the past and found that when you restore your apps back to your phone. Samsung Kies does not restore your save data for the apps.

HTC : Turning On 4G Makes My EVO Sluggish

Sep 1, 2010

My apologies if this has already been discussed in a previous thread, but I tried to search and didn't see it mentioned...

It seems here lately that whenever I turn on my 4G radio (I'm in a 4G area), my phone becomes very sluggish. Browsing and pinch-to-zoom using the Dolphin Browser becomes stuttered, swiping between home screens is delayed, pretty much anything I do is slower. I've killed all apps, but still get the same results. Once I turn the 4G off, the phone works fine. Just wondering if anyone else has run into this issue. It seems to be counter-productive to have a faster data speed when it makes your phone slower, basically canceling each other out.

HTC EVO 4G : Possible Link With Sluggish Performance

Jun 17, 2010

I've been experiencing slow scrolling and overall sluggish performance like others. I got rid of the big sense clock/weather widget because it was covering my new wallpaper. Now things are moving MUCH smoother. I even make less mistakes while using the on-screen keyboard. I also switched to a still background and things got faster. Anyone else have a similar experience?

The only large widgets I'm using is favorites and bookmarks.

HTC 4G : Why EVo Running Sluggish After Recent Upgrade

Sep 27, 2010

I noticed my EVO is running sluggish (2 second delay when touching screen) after the recent upgrade (not 2.2), but the most recent upgrade. I'm trying to figure out why? Right about the time I upgraded the software, 4G was becoming more available in my area. so I'm trying to figure out why my EVO seems to be slower in regards to previous upgrade/4G. Those are the only things I can think of that would cause this and of course, I'm probably wrong.

Sprint Hero : HTC Just Started Getting Really Really Sluggish

Sep 30, 2010

I loved my hero when I first got it and even more so after the 2.1 update but it's just started getting really REALLY sluggish..

I've been ruthless in uninstalling all the apps I don't really need and have recently done a factory reset (after having to change from a googlemail to a gmail account before I could re-access the market) and I also use quick app cache cleaner and advanced task killer.. but it's still so ridiculously slow that i'm contemplating spending ridiculous amounts on an unlocked iphone 4.. Can anyone give me some advice to put some more life back into my phone?

My phone is on Orange UK, 2.1, never rooted and currently showing 90MB of internal phone storage.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Stock Launcher Sluggish In 2.0d

Apr 8, 2010

Running 2.0d for several days now and love it. Very quick and stable when using sense ui, however when I switch to the stock launcher some very strange stuff happens.

The thing takes 3-6 seconds to open from sleep, it just hangs on the background image with no icons or nothing. Then after that finally loads there is an even longer delay when you try to pull up the programs.

After you do this the first time the launcher becomes very quick and normal, that is until you put the phone back to sleep, when you put the phone back to sleep and re-open the whole process repeats.

This does not happen with sense, so is autokiller, killing launcher causing it to completely reload everytime? Is there a way to switch it where it kills sense and lets launcher run?

Motorola Droid :: Widgets Phone Getting Sluggish?

Nov 13, 2009

I have never used Widgets before I thought the icons were those LOL. I now have an SMS widget on my main screen along with a lot of others. My phone is also set to 5 pages. Now my phone is suffering major slowdowns. Is it a bad idea to go over 3 home screens and is there a program to monitor for Widgets using to much memory.

HTC Magic :: Sluggish Performance / Poor Battery

Sep 12, 2009

I just got an HTC Magic from Rogers a few days ago and I'm noticing that it's running REALLY slow. The lag is unreal when I text and the battery dies very quickly. I have TWO widgets open (calendar and Google search) and the transition from sliding screens is sluggish. I rooted my phone a few days ago. Could this be the problem? Has anyone else experienced this? I heard that Sense UI is supposed to cause problems, but I haven't heard anything regarding Cupcake.

Android :: Media Player Sluggish To Play Sounds

Mar 31, 2009

I have an Activity that plays a brief OGG "pop" sound effect when bubbles pop. To keep it fast and to ensure I can play several pops, I create four MediaPlayer instances. I synchronize access to a pool of instances, so I can play up to four pops at once. Once a sound completes, I call seekTo(0) and return the MediaPlayer instance to my pool.

Here is a rough sketch of the code:
// when the activity resumes... for (int i=0; i<4; i++) {
MediaPlayer mp = MediaPlayer.create(context, R.raw.pop);
mp.setVolume(1f, 1f); players.add(mp); // put into a pool of available players }

HTC Incredible : Sluggish Downloads / Try To Install A Couple Of Apps

May 5, 2010

I've been using AppBrain to interface with the Android Market and I have been running into an issue where I try to install a couple of apps, it says it's starting download, but then nothing happens. I even turned on and off my 3G a few times, with no luck. This has happened once before. Is there something wrong or is this a case where the Android Market is a POS?

Samsung Fascinate :: Down / Up Load Speed On 3G?

Sep 10, 2010

Just curious if any of you proud Fascinate owners have run the app or the FCC speedtest app with your new phone, yet? I have the other CDMA based cousin, Epic 4G, and a lot of us have been experiencing an upload cap of around 200 Kbps over Sprint 3G (Lousy down/up load speed on 3G). Could any of you be kind enough to report back any speed test results that you've done? It might give us more of a clue on whether it's a Sprint issue or a general problem with Samsung's CDMA radios. We've all called Sprint and they were unaware of the issue at the time, so many of us are awaiting call backs from Sprint for updates on our support tickets.

HTC Desire : Init Process With Busy Loop - Sluggish Phone

Sep 23, 2010

(HTC Desire running 2.2) Sometimes the init process enters a busy loop, consuming all CPU time. This has happened to me three or four times now. When it happens, Android System Info shows 100% CPU usage and if you run top in a terminal emulator, you can see that it's the init process eating up the CPU.

This makes the phone real slow and the only cure I know of is a reboot.I was going to check out the logs while the init was looping, but I forgot. I don't know how to repeat this - today it happened when I exitted VLC Stream and Convert, but it happened before I even installed this application.

I think this happened before the 2.2 upgrade as well and my son said his Xperia X10 eats the battery real fast sometimes - so maybe the same problem exists in Android 1.6 already.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Rooting For Increased Speed?

Aug 22, 2010

I have been reading a lot about this rooting of the phone just so you can install a fix that will get rid of all the so-called Lag issue. Now, I really like to know why it is a MUST to root your phone just to increase the speed? I do not get it. Aren't there available programs in the market, to shut down unwanted programs? Like Task killer etc. BTW, is this the best program for this issue? I have ordered a Samsung Galaxy S and hopefully I will be getting it soon. But it worries me that the first thing I have to do is 'Root' my phone because of programs running in the background? Does not sound too logical to me. Has everyone rooted this phone upon receiving it?Samsung is coming out with a new firmware or update next month, so is it really necessary that I start messing up my phone for something that will be officially available to the public? Is this lag on every single new Samsung Galaxy S phone on the market?

Samsung Moment :: Sprints Internet Speed Slowing Down?

Jul 5, 2010

Has anyone here had experience with Sprints internet speed slowing down? I have 2 Samsung Moments and the internet speed was great for months. A couple weeks ago they both slowed to a crawl. I have noticed that this is in the area that I live (Chesterfield, MI) and if I am in other areas it works pretty well. As soon as I get home it is crap. No Pandora, nothing streaming works for crap, and even basic pages like Craigslist take a minute or so to load.

An internet speed test usually shows around 100 or less kb/s for downloading and 200-300 for uploading. Download speeds were at least 500 before this snafu.
Maybe a tower out or something? I thought of calling Sprints customer care, but from previous experience with real technical questions, I don't think I will get anything more than a "company" answer.
