[Q] LG G3 slow after SD card

Hello-

I received a Samsung 16gb SD for my LG G3 from my partner this weekend. Since installing it and adding stuff to it every time I click the home screen all my widgets and apps have disappeared and it takes about 5 seconds for them all to return. I have added some apps to the SD card and used smart clean by LG to clean up the internal card. I tried unmounting and soft resetting the phone as someone mentioned a fix when browsing the net but still no help.

Does anyone else have this problem?

It is an official SD card by the way as it came with her Galaxy S4. I have the 16GB/ 2g ram version

I would backup all the data and format the SD inside your phone. After that restore data to the SD. Have also done this when going from an SGS4 to the G3. While the card did work, after formatting everything was much faster

Ok cool. I did format the card when I plugged it in the first time so will copy everything over to my Pc, Format the card using the phone and then copy everything back over. Will update with results later.

So did everything as requested and still the phone is slow. However I did notice that when the card was wiped the phone still stuttered. Could it be that the SD card is too slow to read from?

Had to delete apps. Nothing was connected!

Is it class 10? well this maybe off topic but I'm using 64gb class 10 from Transcend no issues too or whatsoever. It's also fast when the phone reads it. So i might be thinking that depending on what class your SD card might be since read/transfer rate depends on it. Hope this helps.
