    Is it just me, or is the tab you slide to unlock the phone laggy in Froyo? It was really smooth in 2.1, now it is choppy.

    Its a known issue. Fix is either to download a lockscreen replacement (Lock 2.0, WidgetLocker, etc.) or you can root and install a custom rom with a different lockscreen (Apex for example) Its really sad the moto even with the 2.2 update can't make a simple lock screen work correctly. :mad:

    I have the same issue. Have not had the guts to root my phone....yet. Hopefully will be addressed in the 2.3 (Gingerbread update)

    This is such an often mentioned issue... and I completely agree that it's stupid. It's an unlock bar, why should it be laggy?

    But on the other hand... is this really a huge problem for people? It has zero effect on functionality.

    Just curious if it's perceived to be a functional problem or if people just look at it and think, "huh, that's stupid" (which, as I said, I agree with).

    It is purley asthetics in my opinion. Having said that, a dead pixel is the same thing. It doesn't effect the functionality of the phone, but its always there staring you in the face. I lock my phone every time I put it down, so I'm always having to unlock it to use it. and the lag bugged the hell out of me. Luckily I'm running apex, oc'd to 1.38 and the rEVOlution theme so the problem is non existent to me now!

    Thanks for the replies everyone... I agree that it doesn't effect functionality, but it is still really annoying and looks awful.

    yes. it's very annoying. turning off animations hasn't helped any in my case. i'm just going to continue to bitch about it until we get an update prob by mid next year :(

    although i'd imagine they do, i wonder if other phones are experiencing the same issue with 2.2

    I've noticed the lag as well...I have tried widget locker, but I didn't like that when you charge your phone it doesn't tell you the percentage charged. WL seemed laggy as well.

    I agree it's laggy, it doesn't really affect my day to day use but it does make the phone feel... slow when it's not.

    I'm trying out other lockscreens now. I wanted something clean, simple and smooth.

    I'm trying Lock 2.0 Limited Demo. It's clean, and very responsive. I like that I can set it to use my desktop wallpaper and that it switches to a dark wallpaper when I plug it into the charger (doesn't light up the whole room at night quite as much). BUT... hitting the home screen button dismisses the lock. So if I accidentally hit the home button while the phone is in my pocket, I may end up butt dialing or butt surfing or... you get the idea.

    Any other recommendations on clean, responsive slide to unlock lock screen that actually locks the device?

    Widget Locker is the only lock screen replacement I've been happy with. It's well worth the small charge. It's extremely smooth, hasn't ever given me a problem, and even has the cool rotary lock screen as an option. I just wish it could replace the laggy slide to answer screen.

    Widget locker is next on my list... honestly it looked like overkill for my needs so I started with Lock 2.0 for that reason. I'll have to check it out.

    How did rooting change the performance of the lockscreen (it didn't on mine)? Or did you load a custom rom with a different lockscreen?

    i don't think he meant JUST rooting, but the things root allows you to do, like overclocking and custom roms.

    WidgetLocker has been the perfect alternative to provide a smooth unlock slider, and it's provided the added benefit of adding widgets to your unlock screen.

    Simply use something like battstat to put the percentage of charge on your lock screen :]
