Here is why Android is laggy and why it’s going to remain like that in the near future

0. phoneArena 07 Dec 2011, 03:38 posted on

Have you noticed that Android is laggy? It is. We hoped things would change with dual-core processors and when we got the LG Optimus 2X in our trembling hands, the first phone running…

Dude... why so freaking personal? You start calling people names, and granted they sometimes return the favor, but you just don't let it go once it starts. You are not a pleasant person to have a conversation with unless we are kissing a certain part of Apple's anatomy... and I don't know a whole lot of folks here who are willing to do that just so that you'll treat them nicer...

@hepresearch. Did you ask remix that question? Did you read his post and what he said about me? Of course not. Because you're a biased hypocrite yourself :-)

I am a pleasant person to have a conversation with. But of course it all depends who I am conversing with :-)

Now let me ask you this. Who called someone names first? Was it me or remix? Please answer.

I have read all the posts here... and actually I understand why he posted what he did, because, truth be told, you, gemini, are annoying a lot of people. And no, you have not been entirely pleasant to converse with. You talk in a way that shows that you feel superior to everyone who does not agree with you, you act childishly and lash out inappropriately (and by the way, saying that someone else lashed out first is not an excuse), you do not take criticism well at all even when it obviously applies, and you do not appear to listen to or even try to understand anyone else's point of view on anything. Trying to communicate with you is like trying to talk with a brick archway and getting clothes-lined in the head while trying to pass underneath.

So you think that the CPU on a Samsung Galaxy S2 is as powerful as that on an 800mhz single core Pentium 3 pc?? WOW! That's dumb of you! No dual core mobile CPU can withstand 25% of what a Pc CPU can... It will only happen when mobile CPUs have up to 256mb cache in them.

I don't think Android was made to compete with BB OS in anyway, because BB OS only had a sizeable market share back then... And it mainly in the US! Early Android versions were Symbian rip-offs! Don't argue with me if you have never owned atleast a Symbian OS9.0 powered device.... Then later Google shifted it's attention to Touch-Optimisation when the iPhone came out... Nokia has bn able to remove the lag from Symbian in S^Belle by using a powerful GPU to run UI elements, multitasking, video encoding, 3D Rendering & leaving the CPU to run basic OS processes..... Nokia did this in 6months.... I think Google should do the same.

Symbian could never be touch optimized? WOW! What will you call Symbian Anna & Belle? Dude you're living in the past... Till date only BB OS still lacks touch optimization.... Get your hands on a Symbian Belle powered phone before you say stupid things about the OS... I have an LG Optimus Black, but it LAGS AF! Though I really don't care about the lag, but when I see that my Nokia 701 doesn't lag & heat up when doing multiple tasks, I feel disappointed with my Optimus Black....

Oh I'm sorry remix. I forgot that you're the only one who's supposed to flood the threads on here with your anti Apple campaign :-)

Why are you picking on remix, when it seems like I have been flooding this thread more than any other person in here? I might even have topped you in here for the amount of stuff being spouted...

@hepresearch. Why am I picking on remix? Maybe you should read his first comment. The one I replied to. Now who picked on who first? But of course you're blind to see when he's picking on ios users. You only see our retaliations :-)

I don't care who picks on who first... that's an excuse a child would use to get his sibling in trouble and keep himself free of rebuke at the same time... trust me, I grew up with a younger brother... I have experience there. After a while, it just does not make sense to retaliate in a personal manner. That is why I am not sitting here all day calling you names on the internet. Granted, I do pick on you for saying funny things, but I am not swearing at you or otherwise meaning to hurtfully belittle anyone.

Good article interesting to learn some of the ways android OS works. With the technology changing very fast and big improvements on smartphone cpu's and gpu's i am sure the minor lag will go away.

ok, so just reading all these posts, some from couple of years ago. Have been an iphone fan since iphone 4 but 2 months ago got my samsung galaxy S3. eerrrm. It lags like hell. Sorry guys. No third party apps and done a re-boot. Noticeable stutter and lag when scrolling through web pages and some pre-installes Apps. yep. defo stutter and lag. And i thought this S3 was the top end Android device? Mmmm. maybe visiting an Apple store again soon.

Can't blame you there. With the ridiculousness of Microsoft's Windows 8, the ONLY company that still makes a traditional PC is, of all companies, Apple! I shudder to think of how badly things have gone for Android and Windows (Windows Phone has fared better than Windows, but only because it is on a phone that is guaranteed to have a touchscreen, and because people who use smartphones will still recognize the label-less tiles thanks to the ubiquitous symbols common to past smartphone OS's), and it disappoints me terribly. Android has only become more controlled and limited, like iOS. If anything, BlackBerry 10 is looking like a modernized return to something classy and functional, but still with the modern styling, and reminds me of some of the best parts of Symbian or MeeGo. What is worse, though, is this concept of Ubuntu and other Linux distros being merged into Android Key Lime Pie... though Ubuntu is trying to do their own mobile OS, I doubt it will be popular enough to keep itself from being absorbed. Just as Windows 8, RT, and Phone 8 share the same kernel across all devices, so too Android seeks to be a cross-platform performer, from mobile to tablets to desktops, and absorbing Ubuntu is the key to that aspiration. Apple has allowed iOS to develop seperately from Mac OS X, despite the fact that they share the Darwin-UNIX kernel, and so Mac OS X still offers the kind of desktop/laptop platform that most PC users still prefer... and they are now the ONLY ones, unless you are willing to dive into [REAL] open-source Linux builds.

My next computer will not be a Windows 8 abomination... it will be a Mac, even though I hate the fact of it. There just isn't any other reasonable choice left, and I'll probably not have the kind of money to get one for a long while anyway. Until then, I keep using this failing Windows XP desktop, an old Nokia N800 tablet with a Debian chroot, and one of these old S60 3rd Edition Nokia phones that I bought back for cheap from my friend, who I sold them to two years ago to pay my bankruptcy attorney.
