    Default Freezing/locking up

    Has anyone experience any freezing or locking up? Got my Verizon G3 today and it had locked up on me 3 times. I was doing some heavy app downloading and changing settings when it locked up. The screen went black each time and would not turn back on. I had to do a battery pull.

    Got mine today and had no such experience. Could just be the be the heavy downloading. However, I did switch to ART before loading apps and setting up the phone. Strongly suggest it. Can't imagine dalvik being any snappier. Coming from an M8 and could be happier.Are you still experiencing the lock up issues?

    I too switched to ART before downloading and making changes. The last locked up was about 3 hours ago. I'm hoping it stops because I love the phone so far.

    You probably have an app that doesn't like art!

    Dude that blows, I'm sure it was due to the heavy app loading/downloading

    Was it hot before it locked up?

    It was hot the first couple of times. I was charging it at the same time as I just got it and it only had 45%. The last time it locked up I was not charging it, don't think it was hot either.

    Sounds to me that heavy app downloading would be the root cause.

    Of all the niggles reported on these forums I have only very slight lag in the app drawer (update will fix).

    Hope all is well now mate :-)

    Mine has been a bit laggy, but that may be due to the fact that I was setting it all up and using it for the first time.

    My lag seems to be gone now. Any of you getting force closes with my Verizon app and evernote?
