Hello all, today I come to you in need of some help with my razr.
This past week it has gotten slower and slower, with EVERYTHING. When I unlock my phone to even the home screen, sometimes it takes 5 seconds to transition from the lock screen to the home screen. Opening the app drawer is much slower than ever, opening misc apps is also slow. This is not a consistent thing, its more random than anything. It will work fine for just about a whole day, and then out of no where it will just be extremely sluggish.
It is stock ICS
Any helpful insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I did not, because everything was working flawlessly after the upgrade. The slowness started either Sunday or Monday this week. And my thoughts were if it were going to be from the ICS upgrade I would have noticed it immediately
but I will save that as a last resort thing if needed
Go to google store and get history eraser and run that. It will remove all app cache that slows your phone down.. be sure to look at all the checked and and remove checks from boxes you dont want erased such as text or call log,etc.. it works great for me. Let me know..

It is unfortunately a reality that almost everyone is going to do a Factory Data Reset after a GB to ICS or ICS to JB upgrade (there are for sure a very few who won't).
None of us like doing it (you'd have to be a little nuts to enjoy it) but we did it. It gets easier each time you do it (I've done it four times now after two updates and two "test" needs).
The other benefit ... you will probably finally work out how to protect YOUR data so if YOUR phone is lost, stolen, or destroyed the data that is important to YOU is still available for YOU.
Yes, I've done factory resets after every OS update (Froyo, GB, ICS and JB) and highly recommend it. Actually, I think I've done 3 of them after the JB update alone for a variety of reasons. It does get easier the more often you do it and if you use an alternative launcher, it's not as painful because most have a backup and restore feature which makes rebuilding homescreens a breeze. Still, in my experience, running an occasional cache partition wipe helps keep your phone running at its best.
