    come to think of it, i've never been in a situation that i've needed to extract anything on the phone, so i wouldn't actually know, but it's weird that androzip doesn't work - try asking the dev what's up?

    haven't used an iphone so can't compare, but i find most things on the galaxy sluggish - the hardware is quite dated and the amount of ram is miserable
    apparently galaxo helps with that tho', mainly because of overclocking (plus swap and other tweaks) - still haven't gotten around to flashing it on mine
