I really appreciate your opinion.
I have been using the EXT4 for a month now with an updated version of the Incredible S Nand Rom I was on.
I thought, back then, that to upgrade to ext4 would be great as the rom update was released.
The rom was snappy and smooth when I used it with ext2.
When I upgraded my file system (on Sd Card) and used it with the ext4, the rom seemed to be laggy !!!
This I encountered especially when phone syncs with whatever service (weather, mail, facebook for HTC Sense ...)
I thought it was the rom upgrade !!!!
I doubled checked and found all people using the same rom upgrade are happy with no problems.
So I googled the ext2 vs ext4 thing, and there was your answer
And the whole thread
I reverted back to the ext2 file system and the rom flies smoothley on my phone.
