I know this has probably been posted numerous times but i'll post it again anyways. I was playing around with some settings and found the animations setting about 2 nights ago shortly after i rooted my phone. I set it to only show some animations and it seemed alittle quicker. I then turned all animations off and wow that makes things seem alot faster. I think loading the animations is one of the reasons the phone feels slower than it is at times. Either way animations off = much faster feel and responsiveness.
