Update in Post #19 (Listen to me now and believe me later). Problem: Sporadic heat and lag issues Theory: Flash is the culprit (or a big part of it) Rationale: Things that normally make an Android device run hotter are N64 & PSX game emulators, Flash, and wifi tethering. I have played both emulators and some sustained time with wifi tethering, but none have yet made the DX2 run very warm (this is very nice). It almost seems like there is an issue with Flash, since it does seem to be what instigates both the warmer temps and the lag issues. My gTablet has Froyo and 10.3 Flash, but does not have the heat or lag issues. Something appears needing tweaked within the DX2 firmware. If I stay away from Flash, I do not appear to have the problems. Even when using Flash, the heat and lag issues do not appear to happen consistently, but are sporadic. I do notice that Netflix does not have any heat or lag inducing issues. Runs quite nice. Seems like Flash sometimes hangs in the background after using, even though it does not show in the task manager. I am determined to keep the DX2, since luv the build, display, radio reception, sound quality (sans the skips), form factor, wifi tethering, dual core for emulators and battery life. The jump from the Incredible is truly as big as the jump from the G1 to the Incredible. Pretty big jump, to say the least. Still, VZW had better update with fixes ASAP and not wait for Gingerbread, since GB apparently does not like dual cores in the current version.
