    Just wanted to share a program duo that helped me speed up my DX2:

    So the built-in Task Manager in the DX2 has an "Auto-end list" where you can specify programs that should be automatically closed within two minutes of the display being turned off. I added lots of programs I was surprised to see had been running in the background. I didn't add any (like Pandora) that are sometimes used while the display is turned off.

    I then downloaded SystemPanel Lite from the Android Market to verify memory usage by application and found a few more to put on the Auto-end list or freeze with Titanium Backup Pro (including Calendar 2.2.2 and Cardock).

    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I haven't seen it. I've seen a noticeable improvement in my phone's performance. And it might be enough to keep me from returning my DX2.

    What all did you add to the Auto-End?

    I added 41 applications so they're really too numerous to list individually. Basically, any applications that I don't need to sync in the background (so I left Gmail alone) or have running when the screen is off (like Phandroid, Browser, Facebook (I'll refresh manually, thanks), Livescores, Wapedia, Youtube).

    It does not really help a much as it could. ATM I have no user apps open and only 33mb of free ram (and the device functions like it).

    Not mine (about 90 to 100mb tops and sometimes breaches 120mb), but it whittles' away in a few hours (20mb goes away within a minute or two), depending on app use and does not come back. Start-up ram is kind of useless though, if it only hangs around for a few minutes or if uoi do not mess with apps.

    There is a leak and an allocation issue, IMO.
