[Q] phone is running ridiculously slow. common?
I have an Infuse that always runs slow, even when I wiped the data from the previous owner when I first got it. It is not hooked up to any cell phone service, as I only use my devices as tools. I recently got an HTC Thunderbolt, and when I compaired its specs to the infuse, they mostly matched up. However, the HTC runs pretty smoothly, and is only a single-core, while the infuse is a dual-core. I'm very confused with the difference in performance. The Infuse often take 20+ seconds to transition between going to the home screen, switching to different home panel, and going to a selected app icon. I am using the stock launcher, 3 home pages, 1 battery widget, and no live wallpaper. Im trying everything I can think of, to not slow it down, and I very frequently to to the task manager, to clear out the active apps and RAM. The phone still remains an astonishing pain to use.
I was wondering if this was common with this device, and what other users have done to remedy it. Could someone recommend a launcher that is friendly to this device? Also, I'm planning on rooting it soon, when I have some time. It's there any good ROMs that someone would recommend, maybe one that is best for phones without cell phone service, and improve on its Bluetooth connectivity. The audio sometimes goes audit for a few seconds, which wouldn't be so annoying, if I didn't mostly listen to audio books. I always have to occasionally rewind the track, to hear the part I missed. Thank you for any input.
