    The Storm lag

    Advertisement



    The word on all the reviews seems to be that the Storm is annoyingly laggy. For those that have had some time to play with the Storm, how is the lagginess to you? Is it as unresponsive as some of the reviews seem to indicate?

    I bought mine Friday and yes it does lag, but not near as much as it did at first. It seems like once it has been fired up for a while, and used a little, it gets quicker. It does lock up frequently enough to be annoying though...

    c'mon update...

    I could care less about themes honestly, its obvious that in just a short amount of time themes, apps and all kinds of stuff will be available for this phone. My issue is with the phone itself jamming up with the preloaded standard software. I understand if I download some funky app that it might mess with my berry, same as downloading stuff on your computer can screw with your computer. However the software ALREADY ON the thing should work, right?!

    Yeah, it does lag every now and then but nothing an update can't fix, so no big deal.

    I don't think I'd complain too much if it was free... are they going to put you on a new contract with it?

    the lag is not so much what drive me crazy - its the lock ups. I must have pulled the battery at least 5 times yesterday. I understand the lag will most likely be fixed by an update, but the lockups make this thing almost unusable.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well its really not that bad for me. It does lagg every now and then but I'm ok with it for now but if the update doesn't fix it that's when I'm going to get mad. I just hope they fix the media player cause when I loaded an episode of naruto. I played it and it looked great but when I tried to stop it I just keeped on playing and I had to do a battery pull to stop it.

    The lag that I experience now is nowhere near what it was when I bought it. However... I've yet to experience a lock-up or a need for a battery pull yet.

    Noticing some lag, but no lock-ups...even w/my old 3rd party. I think the OS up-date will cure what is choking it.

    Lag is at the most, Minimal. I love my Storm, esp. after I got it for a steal!

    If you have used a Bold it definitely feels like the Storm has a pretty noticeable lag. Agreed it isn't much worse than I had on my Pearl (that thing would take like 5 minutes to load my picture thumbnails)...but compared to the Bold it is SLOW....one of the main reasons I returned mine.
