    So most of us can agree, when we have full bars the Hero runs pretty smooth. But when we are down to, say, 1 bar, the Hero starts to lag a lot.

    Is this something that occurs with ALL smartphones? I dont think iPhones, or Blackberries do that... those are the only smartphones I've played around with enough to be familiar with.

    If now, is it a problem with Android 1.5 and its native incompability with CDMA? That is, will we see this problem go away once 2.1 arrives?

    Great question. I too notice the same lag when I have 1-2 bars on the meter. Ironically, yesterday I had about 1 bar, and because of the fact that I didn't want my phone to strain to connect to the mobile network and result in battery drainage, I tried to turn off the mobile network using the on/off widget. It wouldn't turn it off! strange. Once I had 2-3 bars it would turn off.
