    So this might just be me but has anyone realized that the stock OS becomes really laggy and choppy after keeping the phone on for several hours?

    The phone starts out with 110 mb of speed or whatever its called (according to task killer) and then slowly goes to about 60 or 50

    I kill my tasks after there done but it still seems slow, any ideas

    My uptime (since last reboot) is currently 14 days, 19 hours. No lag at all. Certainly shouldn't be happening after a few hours.

    It's 110mb of RAM (or memory), not speed. And it doesn't really matter that it's being "used up". The memory management in Android means that apps are shut down if more memory is needed, and kept in memory for quicker start-up if not. Killing apps manually won't make a real difference, unless you have an app with a memory leak

    Nope. Even when I was on the stock ROM, never had to reboot, not even once.

    Using a task killer aggressively will slow your phone down. Use it once after a reboot to kill all those apps that like to start-up with the phone then leave it alone and let Android manage the memory. It does it very efficiently and it's normal to see only 20-30 mb free. If it's still slow after that check what you have running as it'll be a crappy app that is slowing the phone down. One of the big lag makers is the stock browser, if you are using it try another one like xScope.
