POLL: PlayBook OS2.0, Laggy or Faster?
It seems in every OS 2.0 thread on here, there are people arguing that its faster, or that its slower. SO Lets address the argument here in a thread of its own so we stop distracting from the other threads which were not created to address the issue.
For me, I find it a lot faster, everything (except App world) seems to have gotten snappier. That being said, I did see someone this morning with a PAINFULLY slow PlayBookÖ.Personally I think he had a bad update. Not only did it take forever to open & run apps, They often wouldnít run properly once opened & he would have to back out of the app & then back into it, to make it work properly.
StillÖThat was HIS PB, not mine. Mine is even faster, so thatís how Iím voting
btw itís still too early to tell about battery lifeÖbut personally Iíve always thought that my PB should have a better lasting battery, but now today, itís been running all day (no games though) & is only down to 80%....If thatís accurate & continues, that will mean a BIG improvement for me battery wise.

Each of the upgraded BlackBerry PlayBooks ran very smoothly after the software installation to BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet OS 2.0. I am still learning about the new functionality and features which could take some time. A very nice update that would have knocked this tablet out of the park on release date of 19 April 2011. There are a few rough edges and inconsistencies which should be addressed in the coming months to improve the overall user experience. Now I need to find some time to start developing a few essential applications for this tablet.

My playbook is a lot faster now. The only area that I think they can improve is the speed on email, calendar and contacts apps. I'm sure that they will improve on that on future updates. I have to say this thou, I like the playbook even more now. Exellent job RIM.

My PB is really laggy. Takes a while to load the crackberry website or does not load at all. Gestures sometimes dont work, have to take a couple swipes to do what I want. Not to mention the App World, takes a while to load and forget about searching. What a joke! Was more usable with OS1.

I find it faster than 1.0.8. Also it seems like my battery is draining a lot slower too.
I performed a security wipe from 2.0 Beta and re installed OS 1.0.8 before upgrading to the official OS 2.0 release.

Mine runs well so far. I never rooted or anything either. Towards the end of OS1, some websites were hardly loading if at all. Now those websites seem to load faster than ever. Bridge did feel a little slow but now I just got around to updating bridge and haven't tested yet.Purchased Playbook Day One with $$cash$$ and shot the guy who I bought it from, burned down the best buy, and uploaded a virus on their system to delete any evidence - because thats how I roll. I haven't regretted the decision.
Please don't suggest I buy an iFad or roid.

I find the UI overall feels much faster.
- Opening apps is quicker
- Browser loading pages faster (WiFi bug fixes?)
- Pinch to zoom within the browser is more responsive
- Camera captures photos faster
With the exception of AppWorld, most things feel very fluid!
