huckster:huckster: I have to say, I just compared a parallel import HTC One X to a Telecom-bought one (1.28 vs 1.26 I think) and the performance improvement from old to new was very noticeable.
Apologies for this post. Turns out the dude with the Telecom-sourced version had turned on a "feature" to kill applications on exit. Moving back to the home screen meant restarting all the widgets. As soon as he turned this "feature" off, it was very smooth.
I think that randomly happens on the Telecom sourced versions. Mine does this, and I have no app killing software at all.
