    Default Anyone's One X starting to slow down?

    Seems that sometimes randomly it'll lag when it switches between screens. It'll definitely lag quite a bit after I install an app, slows to a crawl. Anyone else notice this? I don't want to wipe my phone but I guess I will if I have to..

    I haven't noticed anything dramatic. Installing and app I can see slowing down a little because maybe it takes up ram. I always do a hard reset every now and again and it seems to do the trick.

    I also have One X but I noticed that the benchmarks are highest at around 50% battery rather than fully charged.

    I thought mine was, but I was running Go Launcher. Switched to Apex and its stupid smooth. You should check that out.

    My device is REALLY starting to slow down baaaaaad.. after app updates, it's basically unusable for a few minutes. Clicking the recent apps causes a vibrate and like 30 seconds later the list appears.

    I've also noticed that right around the time it starts slowing down bad, the looping circles appear next to the 4G icon(indicating it's trying to sync), so I'm curious if it's trying to sync something that's causing it to slow down..

    That's definitely not right Sniffs.

    This sounds more like a connectivity problem than anything else. (That would also explain the market problems).

    Howbout on wifi? Does it work better on Wifi?

    Could be a tower issue in your area, or a sim problem. Maybe take it in to AT&T and grouse about it.

    Start disabling apps you have installed since the problem started- usual culprits are location aware apps (weather apps), but could be anything.

    If you are thinking it is related to syncing, try toggling airplane mode when it starts to act up and see if it clears up or not. If it DOES fix things, you will need to isolate the app or service causing trouble. You can see all the accounts that are syncing, and can toggle them on/off, in MENU-ACCOUNTS & SYNC.

    You can also disable individual apps in MENU-APPS to see if you can find the culprit, if there is a short list you suspect.

    I have my Samsung SGIII right next to it and I dont show ANY of the same slowdowns.

    my 1X is currently syncing to,

    Exchange Activesync,Facebook
    Flickr
    google
    LinkedIn
    Microsoft Hotmail
    Twitter
    Twitter for HTC Sense
    Voxer
    Yahoo! mail app

    thinking about removing the ones that don't come stock such as Voxer/Yahoo! and LinkedIn and go from there..

    You don't need twitter for htc sense.
    If you install twitter (or any decent twitter client) you can just disable twitter for htc sense in the settings apps. No point in having two different apps syncing to twitter.

    (In fact I see little point at all in even letting my twitter app show up in the sync list. I can't see me syncing with that many apps at all.

    Dropbox,
    Google
    Skydrive
    Weather.

    Thats it. That's all I sync.

    I have K-Mail handle all the other mail addresses I monitor. These are all low-priority anyway, so why do I want the phone wasting bandwidth checking mail all the time on mail accounts I only rarely use? I don't let Android even know those accounts exist.

    Same for Linkedin. Why would you sync with that?

    BUT anyway.... Back on track here...

    If you SGIII does not show slowdowns, and both are using Cellular, that just makes it more likely that the SIM is not configured correctly and you have a connectivity problem.

    Again, I urge you to try WIFI to see if the slow-down goes away.

    I use LinkedIn to sync the business contacts. As for Twitter for HTC Sense, I'll disable that, you're right, doing 2x the work..

    I'll try WIFI also.. It does seem odd that this phone is lagging this bad..

    I removed Voxer and the Yahoo! Mail, and Twitter for HTC Sense and noticed a huge improvement.

    Still a slight lag as it updates apps, but the complete lockup for long periods is gone. I would assume it's either Voxer or Yahoo mail being fully incompatible with either Sense or ICS..

    Personally i would suspect Yahoo.
    When I added a yahoo account it took forever to check the mail.

    I finally dropped it, and just configured my gmail account to pop the yahoo mail and put it all in a folder of my Gmail.
    Let Google deal with it.

    Not sure if you've found a solution yet, but my phone was lagging pretty excessively recently compared to how smooth it used to be. Restarting alone didn't do anything it would lag a lot when ever I woke it up for about 30-60 seconds.

    Anyway what I did to "fix" this was,

    Settings-storage-(internal storage) make more space-clear cache all applications also transfer whatever apps from internal storage to phone storage. After that I restarted the phone and the lag was gone. Good luck!

    Interesting.. with the Yahoo app and Voxer gone, and the cached cleared like you mentioned.. my 1X is back to speedy gonzalez just like my SGIII.

    thanks!

    This really worked. I also made an "honest assesment assessment of apps I wasn't using, including themes and wallpapers

    May 2013 - I just bought the HOX as my upgrade phone over the SGS3 because I've been using HTC for the past 4 years and grew accustomed to sense. I have the same problem with the sluggish scrolling of screens in Sense. When I turn the "block"/page/screen, the edges of the images are choppy and the motion of turning looks like it goes from 30 fps (or whatever it actually is, maybe 24) to 20. I have read all the posts and I appreciate that people are trying to find a solution but I'd like to add that HTC should be shameful of releasing a product that has a known issue. HTC would rather meet a deadline over providing a reliable product, take our money and ignore the issue after they've gotten paid.

    Anyway, it seems like Yahoo Mail and especially apps that require location services greatly consume memory are the ones to blame. While I have that Yahoo Mail installed, I have to restart the device almost everyday just to get the smoothness back. The phone itself is fast if certain apps are not installed and I do recall that the interface was very smooth in the beginning, but like most veteran mobile users, I use only specific apps on my phone and install them all at once. In fact, switching from phone to phone is no big deal since my contacts are all saved through GMail and my apps are the following:

    Gmail
    YMail
    Square
    PayPal Here
    SncMe
    Skype
    Chrome
    Wolfram Alpha
    eBay
    Android Assistant
    Wells Fargo
    Sound Hound
    Shazam
    YouTube

    My solution for the lag was a hard reset....but every day!

    Yahoo Mail is known to be kinda of a not so good app. Everyone I know that uses it complains about it.

    So, I disabled the Yahoo Mail app and used the phone the same way but without the Yahoo Mail app running. It's now been three days and I have not had to restart my phone to regain the fluidity. Everything runs perfect.

    So, I can confirm that the Yahoo Mail app was indeed the problem for me. I've ran all my other apps at least once and have experienced no lag; absolutely none. Unfortunately, I really need to check my Yahoo Mail and running Chrome to view my mail becomes cumbersome when I have to zoom in and out to select mail to view or delete. Anyway, thanks Kevin, for pointing out the Yahoo Mail app as the culprit for my lag.

    The standard mail app can read your yahoo mail just fine.

    Alternatively, since you pretty much can't own an android phone without a Gmail account, you could just set up Gmail to fetch the yahoo mail and put it in a separate folder of your Gmail.


    You don't have to put up with crappie apps. .
