    Can't say that I know for sure. Does it happen all the time, or only sometimes? When I power down my Razr Maxx, the time it takes to do so varies. Presumably, it's taking time to properly shut down all processes so that data isn't lost. It's never taken 30 seconds, but in your case, maybe there was some app that was still running that was stuck or frozen, and finally was able to close.

    It happens all the time. It's really annoying. I encountered a lot of problems with this phone. I want to go back to apple now.

    Are you actually powering down the phone, or just putting it to sleep? There's usually no reason to power down the phone--just let it sleep. If you're trying to save battery by powering down, you might end up not saving that much, because it takes a little extra battery to power it back on again.

    It's probably taking a long time to shut down because the OS has to deal with those broken apps.

    Which apps are freezing? If they're not system apps, maybe you should uninstall them. 3rd party apps aren't always guaranteed to work smoothly.

    Are those picture apps ones that came with the phone, or ones you installed? I assume the album gallery you're referring to is the one that came with the phone. Try uninstalling any 3rd party picture apps you may have installed. Then disable your Gallery app by going to System Settings/Apps/All, selecting Gallery, and tapping Disable. Now go to Google Play and install QuickPic, a nice lightweight gallery app replacement. See if that helps.

    If you need to re-enable Gallery, go back to System Settings/Apps/All, scroll all the way to the bottom (where Disabled apps are listed), tap Gallery, and tap Enable.
