Default Pdf reader

I like to read a lot of magazines in my tab, most are in Pdf format. I'm currently using adobe reader since it is the only one that is very quick responsive and fluid. However this app is not really made for reading books so the experience isn't so nice. I have tried moon, aldiko, goreader and non of them works well. They are very laggy and slow. Any suggestions? I am very desparate!! Thanks in advance

try ezpdf reader.... its not bad with quite a few options. (better than Adobe's effort)

I think they all seem to suffer from lag

I agree, ezpdf reader is by far the best pdf reader currently out there. It has many features including annotate and read back.

I tried ezpdf the rendering to the odf is nice but it loads every time I flip a page? Why is this so? It seems that it its havung a hard time browsing through the pdf however this shouldn't be a problem any more since its already dualcore right??

I'm using SmartDevice PDF Reader (free from Samsung Apps). It renders pages faster than others.

I just loaded a couple PDFs onto my 7.7, and for the most part it loads things very smoothly with EzPDFreader.

However, pretty much any larger PDF (~100mb) does not render very quickly... every page turn I have to see a "loading" icon. Is there something I can adjust within ezpdf? I really like its UI and overall features, but super slow loading may be a dealbreaker. I'm thinking about giving Repligo a try.
And if anyone else has any other suggestions, I'd love to hear em!
