AnonD-29280, 27 Mar 2012do you use facebook app alot ??
or tell me what apps do u have in ur phone ???I do use Facebook but only once or twice in a day. I do kill the app by going to the "Running Services" and understand that its a big resource hog. The apps I use currently are AVG Antivirus pro, App Lock, Apps to SD, Beautiful Widgets, Camera Zoom FX, EX Dialer, ezPDF reader, FB, GPS Test, Skype, Swiftkey X, Watchdog lite, NavFree, smart tools, Angry Birds Space and Asphalt 6 (only a casual gamer, once in a week). Talking about my usage, I mostly use the Gmail app to manage my e-mails and there are other apps that keep running in the background. Just for info sake, I have downloaded the new Xperia S home Launcher and other widgets from XDA and use them, however the lag issue started way before that. I am not claiming that the lag happens every time, but its pretty evident in day to day usage. From what I see, Android devices are pretty snappy at first buy slow down as time progresses. This is my 3rd Droid and I am observing the same pattern. Is that so?
@Anon - Less fragmentation is the biggest advantage of iOS but its due to the fact that they have to take care of handful of devices unlike Android. iPhone prices are astronomically high and I simply can't put that sort of money on a device. This is the first time I am planning to buy a device around 30k range but would still settle for an EMI. I just wanna buy something that lasts me 1 to 2 years. I understand the tech keeps changing ever other day but my salary doesn't he he he. Thanks for the replies though :)
AnonD-3247, 27 Mar 2012Hi Sbdevilmind, I have used Symbian 60 in the past and do understand what you are talking abou... moreWell, an iPhone 4S costs 45k. So if you can go for that then definitely you can buy a quad core android which in fact will cost 10k less. Main problem with iPhone is that Apple is yet to start manufacturing plants in India. This very reason makes iPhone very expensive as the sellers has to pay custom duties while importing.
IPhone in my opinion is better than any Android phone because they have almost zero fragmentation. This in turn lets app developers to make apps that are 100% compatible with the phone with full hardware acceleration. Because they only have to make their app compatible for only a single device.
Android app developers on the other hand needs to make apps that are universal. Hence they can't fully utilize the full hardware capabilities of a certain device. But if an app developer say that his app is Snapdragon MSM8255 optimized, then you can bet that its responsiveness will match that of iOS apps.
So, you can't really blame this phone for the lags. Cause maybe the apps, Widgets etc running in the background or foreground on this phone is not fully optimized. Hence a bit of lag while switching or minimizing is expected.
As far as advanced user thingy goes, I am same as you. Don't know to root, although know the benefits and the technical stuffs behind it. Am not interested either as I am waiting for ICS. But eventually I will, because the auto brightness thing just annoys me. Rooting will let Auto Brightness disable apps to work.

T... moreHi Sbdevilmind, I have used Symbian 60 in the past and do understand what you are talking about. About the iOS part, I did mention that I'd hate to do that and I am an Android fan. I don't have deep pockets to buy a Quad Core device nor do I require it with the kind of utilization I have with my devices. I just wanted to know if people are facing the same issues as I am. When I talk about lag, its the transition from one screen to another that I am talking about. Shouldn't a 1GHz phone be enough to manage these tasks? That's what I though when I decided to buy Neo V but to be honest, I am disappointed. Its just a mere opinion that I wanted to share and get some replies to know if I am doing something wrong. I do have 120-150MB ram always available which shows that I have not bombarded my phone with apps. About Android, no other OS gives you the flexibility that Android gives to customize the way we want it. Right from widgets to complete turnaround with custom rom's. Saying that, I am not a pro user, heck, I dont even know how to root an Android device though I am fully aware of the basic concept of rooting and using custom roms. Let me clarify that I am only seeking suggestions/opinions and not trying to say that its a bad device and someone shouldn't buy it. Its the best device money can buy in this range and every device, be it dual/quad core will have some or the other problems do deal with. I am only looking forward to a smooth interface which has no lags. Suggestions??

Wanna go to iOS. Do it.
Or use the same cash to buy a Quad core device.
NEO V User, 26 Mar 2012My dear, soon-to-be Android users.Please get this in mind before you start using Androi OS pho... moreHey buddy, just wanted to clarify a couple of things to make sure I am not the only one who faces this. First up, built quality - The phone looks just fine but the loose back panel and the silver'ish side panels irritates me to the core and squeak like hell the moment I grab the phone. I do use a silicone cover from Momax which helps a little. The built quality is a bummer and SE should have paid more attention to it. Another example of it is the HDMI port which was to be Gold plated but they did this with the charging port, DUH!! Coming to inside of the hood - the phone responds just fine, however it does lag, a lot sometimes, with basic operation like opening the settings tab or similar functions(I restart my phone daily). I guess its the basic nature or Android and its memory management(debatable) which even makes the SGS2 lag sometimes but Neo V surely lags which is also irritating sometimes. Overall, its a nice phone to have but I am just not satisfied with its performance specially after coming from Nexus S which I sold off due to some issues. My plan is to wait for ICS and if I am not satisfied with its performance, I'm gonna make a shift to iOS(I'd hate to do that) or WP7, though it has numerous limitations. At-least they'll not lag as hell as Android. Or maybe being an Android fan, I'll buy a Galaxy Note or Galaxy Nexus when it comes out. I'd be glad if people can respond to this post and share their experience with Android and Neo V. But claims like "it never lags" are hard to digest. The question is, is it just me?? lol

Hi guys i was using my Experia Neo V for about a month now and it just works fine with my 2GB SD card without any LAG.well need to update the SD card with 16 GB to store more of my favourites. If i talk about about this phone then this is th best phone in the range of 16K as you will get this phone with upgraded Ice cream sandwich OS which is very smooth and UI is also different and interesting. Camera Quality is good not excellent but i must say the camera video recording is far better than the other competitors, as it captures video in HD quality even in night it captures great and a realistic videos which i like the most and my friends also got surprised looking at the g8 video quality. Earlier i was using Galaxy S2 which itself is a g8 phone but the battery life is pathetic i use to charge it 2 times a day, due to which i decided to buy another android with good battery life for which Neo V does'nt dissapoint me at all its battery run atleast for 1 day with all the calls, gaming,dwnlodng,which is quite decent for me. You can do all the thing an android phone can do with this beauty, i never got compliments on my S2 but for this Neo V every1 likes the look and the color (mine is white)as it looks expensive,also the shape of the phone is just perfect not very big or small very handy and fits easily in pocket.Screen is also gud for gaming and to watch ur favourite videos, and with 60% brightness you can easily look into your context in full bright sunlight. so its a great deal go for it guys.
If you compare Neo V is 12000 rupees lesser than Galaxy S2 and provides almost similar features so why to waste such a big amount only for big and bright display whereas you can buy something else for ur self or for ur gf, after all its just a phone. Trust me with Neo V you will feel like you are using a phone with a price like 20-25k. Only problem i faced is when you play game for a long time the upper part become hot which is normal i guess. Rest i am still loving it...its a all rounder,,,
