I am curious to know, What apps are you using to keep your Hero fast? Do you stay away from downloading a lot of apps to keep it running smooth? My goal is to get my Hero to Run as smooth as possible without ROOTING. It's a shame but I only have 13 apps downloaded. I figured less apps, better performance. With all the Cache cleard on my phone. I have Phone free space at 69%(110mb) - SD card free space at 83% (12710mb) My phone runs ok, It's not slow but I think it should be faster, being tho I dont have any apps really. I use Estrong Task Manager to help out. the widget is great. I also have spare parts, I have the settings on fast already. I would like to hear what the rest of you are doing to keep your Hero at an acceptable speed.
