Slow and Laggy Droid-X

First troubleshooting tip is to turn the phone off and turn the phone back on (reboot). Remember you are holding a little computer and sometimes it needs to “reset” itself so to speak.

If the phone is still laggy and not acting right after this try a battery pull.  Pull the phones battery and leave it out for about a minute.  Once this is complete replace the batter and power on the phone.  If the phone is still laggy and not acting right keep reading on.

How many apps/widgets are you running? If you are running a TON of applications and homescreen widgets try removing some if not all of them temporarily to see if this helps the performance.  Lots of homescreen widgets can wreak havoc on your performance.  If you have tried all the above steps and still nothing is working read on.

Ok so here comes the ace in the whole.  If your phone is stock I would at this point do a factory reset.  You can do that by going to menu/settings/privacy/factory data reset. Once completed test your phone for the same issues.  If the phone is not hacked and is still having performance issues, return the phone to Verizon for service/replacement.  If you are running a custom ROM and having these issues try going to the forum where you have downloaded the ROM and look for troubleshooting tips from other users.

    Do homescreen widgets that don’t need to refresh data (ex. Photo Widget) do they take away from performance? I always wondered this because they arent refreshing data constantly like say a twittter or facebook widget.

      Uhh.. Yes and no.. 1 or two of them are fine.. They won’t bother your battery like the rest of them do but TONS of widgets up might effect your performance. Hope that makes sense..

    Also, all of these devices are kinda different for the most part.. Your device might be able to run smoother than others with the same amount.. It all depends. Thats why some can overclock to 1.4 GHZ. I can’t get mine above 1.3.. As long as you are running smooth and to your liking go with it!
