I've had the Charge for about 4 months now. The phone generally ran well on Froyo until about a month ago when I started getting long lags in re-populating the home screen after coming out of the browser and some apps. At first the problem was intermittent, but it was getting worse.
I did the OTA Gingerbread update last Saturday morning and the lagginess disappeared. The home screen would re-populate immediately and the overall phone performance was fantastic. Late Sunday, however, the lag in re-populating the home screen started again. At this point, it is intermittent and the delay is not as long as it was with Froyo, but since this was a progressive problem with Froyo, I'm afraid it is going to get worse again with Gingerbread.
Has anyone else been experiencing this?
The GB OTA update has been great, except for this issue.
I hope I'm not on my way to Lag-Hell again!

Xer0: Thanks for the suggestion, but my internal phone memory and ram are fine. Plenty of each.
Is no one else experiencing a delayed home screen coming out of the browser or some apps?
This is a problem that started happening about 2 months after I got the phone (running on Froyo). The GB update completely resolved the delay, but only for a day or two. Now its getting worse again. Its not a crisis (and the phone is running much better after the update) but it is still very annoying to have to wait for the home screen to repopulate.
The only time I had something similar to what you're describing is when the home screen would re-orient itself due to rotating the screen between horizontal and vertical. I disabled that feature.
I've had that problem no matter what launcher I use. The problem got fixed when I learned how to use V6 Supercharger on the phone, now I don't have a lag with anything anymore. If you can learn how to use V6 supercharger on the phone, you'll be much happier.
