    Or maybe its maybelline lol sorry couldnt resist but seriously tho in my short android life (just had an optimus m and my esteem) Ive noticed with both phones after I do some wiping and flashing of different roms that the phones performance drops dramatically. Im talking Lag city. Sometimes I dial a number and it wont actually start calling out until a minute later,sometimes my keyboard is inactive or sometimes itll just plain lag to the point where its freezing. Is this normal or is it just me? Maybe its an app that I have. Now I admit I do have some paid apps youc an get on the market but I uhhh didnt get them off the market so maybe this is just karma. But just wanna see what youze have been experiencing. remember Ive had this issue with both phones. Gonna take that S3 leap of faith in a couple weeks though. Thanks in advance.

    Try wiping your internal card first from settings, not from CWM. Then wipe everything in CWM (factory reset, wipe cache, wipe dalvik) and install your rom. Backup first! This cleared up my sluggishness issues.

    The gs3 has some lag in it, I just got the LG spirit and its smooth as butter. I was shocked how much more responsive and lag free it is compared to the gs3. I'd suggest going to a Metro pcs corporate store and play with the both of them. They usually have ones on display to try out. Also get an app killer, you'd be surprised how many apps are still running in the back ground after you exit out of them.

    not sure if you are saying to do a factory rest from the privacy menu but if so, don't do that if your phone is root it will brick it.

    How about giving it some power try giving the cpu some POWER . or check and see how much space is on the internal drive u may have to many apps on the system and need to move some to the sd card

    I wouldn't suggest an app killer since as soon as it kills the app it restarts and causes more ram to be lost :thumbup:

    App killers also drain more battery, especially if they're set to auto kill.

    I use a simple app killer called 'fast reboot'... yes, it restarts everything that is normally set to start, but it clears out a ton of stuff in the process. You cannot set it to kill specific apps, but it is 1 simple button/icon press & the lag is gone.

    Also, why not simply press the menu > settings > applications > running services & then kill anything you don't use often, such as maps, wifi, facebook, play store, whatever?

    Also, it is a good idea to restart your phone at least once a week, or in my experience whenever my phone has been on for over 150 hours(6

    I don't know what you are talking about. I am using a GS3 with the stock metro rom and this thing has no lag whatsoever. This is with 3 widgets running at all time. You either had a bad app or a defective unit.

    Dude the esteem is a one core phone with only half a gb of ram. It is really starting to show its age. I don't understand why metro does not lower the price.
