i9300 very slow

Added by s s 4 months ago

this device is extremely slow

is there a way to make it faster by disabling some features?

Replicant 6 tries to disable animations as much as possible, but it uses the CPU for OpenGLES (the GPU is not supported), so it can't be fast anyway. The next Replicant 6 release will probably be a little faster, and it will support apps that require more complete OpenGLES (like recent WebView or Firefox based browsers). Until then you can try my experimental builds, ask about it in the Replicant IRC channel (#replicant at Freenode).

If you have access to a Note 2 (n7100), that device is significantly faster and has the same supported features as i9300 (as it has double the RAM and a faster clocked CPU, but otherwise nearly the same electronics).

Thank you so much for all this work !
I've got a Note 2 for 2 years now, running replicant. I can't imagine running an other OS on this device.

I've just donated 50$ with FSF.

Keep going !

s s: we are working on a Replicant 6 and a Replicant 9 release at the same time, but we don't have an ETA on either of them currently.
