Should my new Wildfire behave like this????

    Had a Wildfire for a few days, now, and am getting very frustrated by its slow response and constant freezing.

    I have loaded a couple of apps from the Android Market (MyPhoneExplorer and SqueezeBox Commander), but, apart from that it is fairly standard.

    For instance, if the screen has powered off then I press the power button - up pops the display, showing time. Sometimes, if it tap the screen, it says screen is locked and drag down, but, often it doesn't and I have to power off/on again. When it does appear, it is a total lottery whether it will drag down and unlock - occassionally, it drags half way even!

    It is as if the CPU is going flat out doing something else and can't be bothered to respond to what I am doing.

    I wonder whether this behaviour is normal and I should have spent a bit more for the Desire or have I got a duff one.

    Even better would be if anyone has suggestions for how to improve!

    Not a great start to life with a 'smart' phone :mad:

    This is definitely not normal. Try a factory reset and see if it goes away.

    I'd try rebooting first, Uninstalling apps second, and factory reset third.

    are you by any chance running an app killer with froyo? that can cause lagging, if so uninstall;)

    Some feedback....

    I did the Factory Reset (as I'd not got much set up on it!) and it is much better! Straight after the reset, it was perfect. Since then, I've installed a few apps and I get an occasional freeze, but, nothing too bad.

    The only apps I've installed are:
    • MyPhoneExplorer
    • Squeeze Commander
    • BBC Sport
    • BBC News
    • Sky Sport
    • Elixir
    • MySettingsPro
    • Pkt Auctions eBay
    • Official eBay
    • SpeechSynthesis Data Installer
    No App Killer.

    Fingers crossed it will stay stable, now

    Thanks for all the advice!
