    After using my phone for a few days it starts to lag while trying to view the gallery. The thumbnails take up to 15 seconds to pop up. Then when I select a pic to view it slows while trying to zoom or swipe to next picture.

    I have an app killer but it doesn't help. i think this only benefits battery longevity.

    I have tried using the native app killer to force an app to close but still its laggy.

    The only thing that fixes this issue is to restart the phone.

    After restarting I get about 2-3 days before I have to restart again. I believe it's not the phone/hardware as it would lag up from the start. I'm assuming its an OS issue.

    Has anyone else come across this problem. Or does anyone know if there is a fix for this. I.E something in the settings?????

    Thanks in Advance

    hi, thanks for the reply.

    I only have a few apps.
    Crazy Birds
    Toss It
    You Tube
    Auto Express
    Pay pal
    AK Notepad
    Advanced App Killer

    Considering the memory on these things I think this is quite minimal.

    I may try a factory reset and see how this goes.

    ahh coolies, remember you can use tools such as mybackup pro to back all the apps andvarious stuff after you action a factory reset, may save you the pain of reinstalling each one lol

    p.s. crazy birds? sounds like the lot i met at yates dancing on the poles there....lol

    Big thread on XDA about this, something to do with /INIT taking up 80-100% of the CPU - go read it over there

    This might be just me coming from a blackberry, but I don't see the big problem with having to restart the phone every 2-3 days...

    Ok I have done a factory reset and only reinstalled a handful of apps. I have also left out Advanced App Killer. So now I guess I play with my phone and wait for a few days.

    I have come from phones that didn't require frequent restart. But if this is an Android thing then i guess ill just have to get used to it. Still no regrets getting this over the iphone4 .

    Thanks for all your input.

    The new SW update has made mine loads better (.6), but it was never terrible.
    Have you updated?

    I was having problems for the first week, then did the SW update, removed Adfree, and did some conditioning cycles on the bat, now the phone seems to working really fast, and i'm not getting any lag, or battery issues (Bat is lasting about 1.5-2 days depending on use)

    I reckon its a combination of the 'AppKiller' and the latest software update. After first day my DHD was suffering lag in AngryBirds and when videoing, kept using the app killer which i think was making it worse. There are loads of threads about how app killers are causing all sorts of problems. Froyo 2.2 is designed to manage your tasks, if you start killing apps which the OS thinks are there, it could cause problems. Although i also read that some apps just can't be quit??? I don't if thats true, but i found deleting app killer solved alot of problems.


    Edit: After reading the above link 'HTC Desire HD - xda-developers ', it seemed to change my CPU usage from 75% to 0%! I'll be interested to see what difference this actually makes.
