if your phone is lagging, its usually because you are running a lot of processes. try deleting some widgets off of your home screen, or not using a live wallpaper if you are using one. you dont (shouldnt) have to do battery pulls on android

it isnt recommended. wont brick your phone or anything, but it isnt a fix-all like it was on BB (i know, i had a curve for a year). this brings up a good question though: anyone figure out how to reboot this thing w/o powering down and powering back on?

I believe there was some kind of application for that. Called fast reboot or quick reboot or something like that. I think all it did was kill all the running applications and then start everything back up just like a reboot. I haven't used it though so I don't know too much about it. I did have an application that actually did reboot on my Droid but it might have been root only.

yeah the display model at the store was running laggy as hell, i figured people had tons of programs open, but android is supposed to deal with that with its built in task killer. so it gave me pause. but i still got it.
exchanged my DINC on the 30th day for it.
i couldnt deal wit hthe capactive buttons any more, they were ruining my landscape experience with my large hands always accidently hitting them while playing games ARGH!

I just received my DROID X from UPS this morning, and during activation and setup the touchscreen becomes unresponsive. I have tried it about 5 different times over the last hour, and every time it will work for a while and then become unresponsive. I can turn the screen off and on with the top button, but that doesn't solve the screen issue, and I have to end up doing a battery pull to turn it off.
I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem, I couldn't find anything using the search. I guess I will be going back up to the Verizon store, sure hope they still have some in stock.

Read some of the above posts, and also try doing a hard reset and starting fresh. Don't add all of the accounts it prompts you to add. Just add your Gmail account. See if you still experience lag at that point. Then, one by one, go in and start configuring the other accounts. During the initial sync it will be laggy while it syncs. It shouldn't be, but in my experience it was. I've yet to see an Android phone where so many people reported this, so there's clearly a firmware issue that Motorola needs to address.

It's not really a problem with being laggy, the touch screen is completely not responding to my touch. This is a different issue that the other posts are referring to.
My local store was out of X's (of course) so they are having to ship me a replacement. Luckily the lady that helped me took some time and was able to get me one sent out now and I should have it Monday. I was afraid I would have to wait until the 23rd.

Post#18 has some basic tweaks I did which might help with this a bit. But I haven't played nearly as much today as I did yesterday with the phone (trying to actually work today!). The only other thing I can think of is make sure to reduce or eliminate any widgets or homescreen items that auto update. For me the default news app seemed to really help the phone when I dropped it out.

You can also try to install spare parts from the market on top of being able to change your animation speeds it gives you an option on setting your process management. If you don't mind things closing after you exit set it to aggressive. That's allways worth a shot I would rather use apps like this than task killer's. Let your phone decide what's a hog and let it end the process

I haven't rebooted my phone since I picked it up on the morning at launch day and have had no lagging. IMO, if you have to resort to a task killer then one or more of your apps are misbehaving. I never used one in the eight months I had my droid and will not use one with my X as there is no point to it.
