    Ok so I got my Sprint Hero a couple days ago, and one of the first things I did was download Snesoid and Gameboid. Added some roms, and they loaded up fine, except they are so choppy, it is not playable. In attempts to make it run smoother, I cleared everything off of my main screens, and used Advanced app killer to make sure everything was off. Still, not much better. I was wondering if anyone has any clues as to what I should do? I am thinking about getting a Class 6 micro SD card, I heard that it would help, but would it help that much? Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I have searched Google for many different possible solutions, but none of them have worked so far. Any ideas?

    I am running Android 2.1; it isn't any faster than 1.5 as far as the emulators go FWIW.

    And I already posted this in the Games section, nobody there was any help so that is why I am posting it here if you are wondering.

    Lastly, is it true that the full version is faster? Doesn't seem like that would be true

    So i guess I am the only one here who has tried to use these emulators then, huh?

    I use the full version of the SNESoid and it does put a hurtin on the Hero.

    The Hero is fairly old (in cell phone terms), if possible I'd get at least a Samsung Moment if you can't swing an EVO right now.

    SD card speed is irrelevant cause once the game is loaded into memory, it won't be pulling anything from the SD card.
