Why does it take so long to charge via computer and via car?

Friday 07th of September 2012 /
I've noticed that charging the DROID RAZR MAXX doesn't take too long at all to charge when plugged up to a wall socket... However, when plugged up to a laptop or even in the car, it takes AGES!!! I've been home since 6:00 and it's 9:00 and my phone has only charged about 20% or 30% or so... Freaking horrible. This has been consistent since I've bought it, but I've never complained about it because it didn't seem that big of a deal, but obviously now it's much more of it for me.Although I plan on getting the new iPhone and sell this crap when it comes out... I'm still curious about this issue... (I just had to mention that )

Why does it take so long for text message apps to open?

Sunday 22nd of August 2010 /
I generally use Google Talk, but some of my text messages come to my Verizon number.With either the messaging program or Handcent, it takes at least 20 seconds for the app to open.Anyone else have this issue? Does anyone have a fix?This did not happen on my Droid.

gps tracking - Why does it take so long for a program like Mapdroid to use the GPS to track you on a map

Tuesday 08th of February 2011 /
I was in London last week (which is outside my country, so I did not use roaming to connect to the internet to be able to use the maps application from Google). In stead , I used Mapdroid to find my way around the center there.Mapdroid, for those who don't know this program, lets you download maps and than use them without data connection. The only thing you need to do is turn on the GPS.This works great apart for the fact that it can take between 5 and 10 minutes for the program to mark you location. If it does, it can track you fine , and it keeps tracking you on the map.But I am just wondering why it takes so long before Mapdroid knows where you are.Is it a hardware thing (I have a Samsung Galaxy S phone running Froyo).

Why does it take so long to email a pic from my phone?

Tuesday 23rd of February 2010 /
Not really complaining as much as just wondering.I use my phone tethering to surf the web and play World of Warcraft and see absolutely no difference in bandwidth related performance, yet I took a picture with the camera today and sent it via email and it took (without actually timing it) what seemed like 5 minutes to send the file. ..and I am not talking time to get the pic in the email I sent it to, but the time the little recycle looking symbol was on the screen at the top as it was sending it .

Why does it take so long to pull up a name in SMS?

Tuesday 15th of July 2014 /
Ive tried everything...ive deleted roughly 80% of all my messages, got rid of any apps that could be slowing the phone down, restarted the phone, etc. And still, when I go to search/add a name in the to field in SMS, it can take about 5 seconds to find it. Considering the state of the art hardware that this device utilizes, why on earth is it taking so long?
