Is the 1GHz processor fast enough?
I am beginning to wonder if this is why 2.3 might not work for us. Here are some of the performance issues I have found. My Inspire is non-rooted with the side load update and minimal shortcuts and widgets running on 3 homescreens.
1. Reboots and boots are slightly slower, even when taking the battery out. The at&t logo hangs longer than normal.
2. 'Messages' app has to catch up. I will sometimes open Messages and for a split second it shows the numbers and not names but then it corrects.
3. Last night Messages actually crashed.
4. Using Advanced Task Killer, even after shutting down unwanted apps, still only shows 400MB available memory.
