Am I facing a hardware issue here, or is the phone control software sick?
Btw. I'm still running 2.1, update 1.
Thanks a lot!
Nothing serious to worry about.... especially for such a short time It's more than likely part of the lag issue on the SGS where the CPU is being tasked at the time of your conversation.
If it continues to degrade you have various options:-
1. Factory Reset ~ Release any errors that have crept in on your phone.
2. Perform a de-lag ~ De-lagging your phone will basically sort out the filesystem. There are various tools for doing this which have been covered on the site (by myself to name but one). You will hovever have to root your phone to do this but again both principles are easy to carry out.
3. Upgrade to Froyo ~ Without doubt the worthiest of choices to make. Froyo will release your phone from all the issues that were found on Eclair.
Not all users who have upgraded have reported all the errors gone but part of this is down to how the upgrades have been carried out.
Basically I find in order to upgrade successfully from 2.1 to 2.2 you first need to Factory Reset then upgrade. The trick was in doing the Factory Reset first and not after installing the new Froyo with fixes ROM.
