Just wondering if anybody else was having the same problems as me as the general opinion of the Revolution here seems to be pretty good. I love this phone about 95% of the time, but there are two big problems I have with it. Every time I have some sort of incoming notification/event going on, the phone locks up until it's done. For example, when downloading an app the phone freezes until the download/install is finished. Same with an incoming MMS. The worst is for incoming calls it takes ~3 rings to load the answer button. Most of the time the phone is very responsive, but this is going to get annoying very fast.
My second problem is that I can't kill the music player, and it's eating 90% of my battery. I still get decent battery life, but I can't find a way to get out of the app. I tried turning off the controls in the notification drawer and killing through a task killer but it will not die. If there was a way to restore this phone I probably would have rooted it already to try to fix this, but the lack of a restore is holding me back. Also, I do sort of like LG's UI and I'm not ready to give up on it yet
Well my samsung fascinate had a memory manager that I could use to kill the app by clearing the ram, but that was the easy way. CM7 has the same issue and I could never find a way to kil the app from inside the app. You can put a widget/shortcut on the home screen that goes to running apps and then under running apps push music app and click force stop.
After some more use the freezing issue is a little better. Now the only times I notice it are installing and uninstalling apps sometimes. The rest are gone, and after a restart I'm able to kill the music app. This phone is definitely a keeper, the limited freezing I can deal with
