Well, my stock SGS with 2.1 (Froyo)was 'ok' when I first got it, and then after a while it started getting quite LAGGY. It was very frustrating at times. As I was new to the Android world and just finding out about apps I didn't have all that many apps loaded on my device, so I attributed it to Froyo. I did some reading up on the issue and at the time no one could really pin down the lagging problem. I did notice that there was a 'lag fix' program available but if I remember right is was for rooted devices only. I just sort of 'put up' with the lagging problem for quite a while,...and then decided to do a FW upgrade to 2.3.3 (Gingerbread). I had read some good reports on it and it looked like the way to go. I even considered trying to do the upgrade myself with Kies,....but after reading so many horror stories regarding Kies...I held off. Then, with the help of my Samsung tech friend we did the upgrade. He used Odin and everything went very well, no problems. I immediately noticed how smooth the new FW was on my device. Wow,.....it was great! What an improvement! I was a happy user again!......that is...I WAS happy until just this past week or so,.....because now the friggin LAG problem IS BACK. Now, I'm willing to concede that it may be my fault....and that's why I'm posting this. Maybe,....just maybe???....I have too many apps loaded onto my device? I'm just asking. I just counted fifty apps on my device. I have an 'app to SD' app installed and as of now I have 24 apps on the (external) SD card and 26 apps on the device (phone) itself. Would the amount of apps loaded on your device be the cause of the lag problem....this time? So, I'm wanting some feedback from other SGS users out there....Are you having lag problems with 2.3.3? Do you or do you not have many apps on your SGS? Do you think those fifty apps that I have loaded are the direct cause of my new lag problem? You see, I thought Gingerbread took care of that problem, so I really don't know why I'm having this problem...again. So....Wadda ya think??? Feedback? Ideas? Suggestions? If so, THX in advance.
