Returning to Blackberry
I decided to leave the Blackberry Torch for the Samsung Galaxy Note. Now, I am going back to Blackberry. Android isn't faster, like I was told. If anything, I find it lags.Another Day in Paradise

Lol I find it extremely hard to believe that the Note isn't faster than a Torch. Does your Torch not lag at all? I have used all the OS7 devices and they all lag. All devices lag with enough stress.
Have fun with the Torch.
Also, don't base your opinion of Android off of one device. Especially when you probably weren't on the most current version, and you are using a heavily modified (skinned) version of Android. Stock ICS is super fast.

1st why are you posting this in the Android section?
2nd I'm leaving Blackberry for an android....
3rd we'll turn this into a constructive thread for this section of the forum...Nexus,S3 or an HTC phone? I'm thinkin HTC so I don't have radio issues?

Just saying this is why there is a Switching Devices thread in the General Discussion. It would be better if you explain your experience rather than coming off as trolling. No matter what phone or electronic item you have it will always have some type of "lag".

Well gee whiz, my HTC Vivid has these speeds...Download@18.53mbps. Upload@7.50mbps. Ping@69ms. I guess that i'm "lagging". OP: If you want to go back to BB, that's fine. They make good phones. But please don't use a lame excuse to justify your decision.

So 4g Internet Speed is the only requirement to establish lag? Therefore any not 4g device lags no matter who makes it.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

Now if you tell me that when you're switching between running programs or writing an email, playing a video etc. switching in and out and zero lag then I say you have an argument. Comparing a 3g phone as laggy compared to a 4g phone isn't a comparison. If you compare the OS for laggyness then it's a comparison.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K.

My impression with my first Android was that Motor Blur on my Atrix made my phone laggy. Once I removed Motor Blur and used Launcher Pro, the device felt like an entirely new device.
My Skyrocket, which doesn't have Motor Blur, is blazing fast.
It is possible that different skins laid on top of Android might cause it to lag.
That said, my personal preference is for BB. If I had to do without one of the two I would give up my Android. And before giving up my Android I would give up my iPhone.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup
Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

It really does lag! I switched too (still aren't back yet ) but it lags and I find it glitchy. The OS feels like a beta or tester. Doesn't feel refined.

I couldn't believe Sammy put gingerbread and not ics on the note, and i didn't like how it ran. Also screensize is too big. I fell for the sgs3, burnt the early upgrade I was saving for iphone 5. I figure worst case is I can sell my 4 and SGS if i want it bad enough.
I can't imagine going from note to torch though. After 2 days my iphone seems tiny. I had a customer and fellow WebOS enthusiast bring me his palm pixi to play around with... Its tiny! I imagine the torch would feel the same way after the note lol.

I know, I know, I can just get a Nexus device, which I do have, but still, but I'm talking just in general, for someone out there who can't get a Nexus device and doesn't know how to root and flash roms.

I think that Android devices work fine for the most part. I think that Android users get frustrated with the update model to the most current OS. Just about every Android device I have had worked as it was supposed to. It it didn't, there was usually an update shortly after to fix it.
