    Default Web browsing lag on a rooted Charge?

    Hi folks,

    When I play with a Charge in store, it is decently quick on home screens, but lags noticeably in the browser (less so in Dolphin) vs how the T-Bolt, Revo, and other phones like the DX2 perform on heavy pages, ie, Engadget, Android Police, etc. Can anyone who has a rooted Charge with a debloat and/or Voodoo kernel tell me if this issue is resolved after the fact? Or even better, post a video of what scrolling is like on a busy page? I've seen the Altered Beast UI video, and it is phenomenal.

    This is the major issue keeping me from getting one instead of jumping to Tmo for the Sensation or Sprint for the EVO 3D. I get a great employee discount with VZW, and would like to use it with the 4G speed if this can get sorted out. Thanks for any help!

    I'm running Altered Beast V4 at the moment and have absolutely no lag while surfing flash heavy pages (Dolphin HD). If I could make a video I would, but trust me (and others) that it's not a problem. I definitely wouldn't let that hold you back from jumping in!

    The Reiser FS is modified with proprietary stuff to index files, but it tries too hard and slows down the system. The 1 GHz Hummingbird *should* perform as good as the 1 GHz Snapdragon (if not better because of better graphics handling), but the indexing drastically slows down performance. In the Quadrant tests, the Voodoo lagfix shows that the original kernel without ext4 is slowed by more than 500-600 points, which is a lot.

    Either install the rooted ED2 voodoo kernel or the Altered Beast v4 ROM to improve performance.

    Did you install and enable the Voodoo lagfix?
