G1 generally sluggish

Does anybody else have this complaint with Android on the G1?

When I'm using an intensive application, like Doggcatcher or Twidroid, if I click home there is a delay of about 10 seconds while the home screen loads. Is this because the processor can't cope? Or do I have a bad G1?

I have had a few other issues, such as the touchscreen being unresponsive or acting strange, usually after charging my G1 at work.

I should probably ask this at an Android forum but thought I'd throw it out here first.

Thanks.

I too see that but...

The Home screen app *IS* usually sluggish but I have been attributing it to two things:

- I moved all my apps to the SD card which is Class 4 (so slower than internal RAM)
- I have all three screens almost full of apps

I have assumed that the Home app doesn't cache the app definitions so it has to go to the app directory itself to get i.e. the icons and such. Have you tried removing apps from the Home app?

I have just reset my phone to

I have just reset my phone to factory settings, thinking that might resolve this and other problems. I don't have many apps on the home screens, and I do have apps on my SD card but they are backup, not accessed.

Do you think I should try removing the apps I do have on the home screen and see if that helps?

Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.
