Hello everyone. I've been using a Pre 2 for one year before "moving" to an HP Pre 3, and even though the 2 started lagging when being overloaded with apps that never shattered the quality of the music I was listening to or the videos I was watching. On the contrary, the Pre 3 visually lags almost never, but if I'm listening to music or watching a video while doing something else which requires some more effort, like opening a web page, both audio and video start lagging, causing an extremely annoying "play-pause-play-pause" effect. It freaks me out, this never happened on a less-powerful device like the Pre 2. It also occurs when CPU is overclocked at 1.9, which is its limit, though less frequently.
I doctored to 2.2.4 with a Doctor which wasn't properly for my phone because I couldn't find the correct version corresponding to my serial number (HP says it is invalid and there's nothing in webOS internals) a few months ago. When I did it again to try to solve this problem, lag seemed to be gone, but after reinstalling anything I had before it reappeared. So I tried to uninstall any kind of useful but non necessary app, patch, service: nothing changed. Today I doctored again, this time to 2.2.0, and right after the account restore lag was there. I can't browse the internet or use MojoWhatsup while listening to music without getting horribly annoying lag and skipping. I made any attempt I could think about, this is driving me crazy, it's ruining my webOS experience and I'm thinking of buying another Pre3, but I'm afraid of getting a phone with the same issue.
Please, please, somebody help me.
