Hi,

 

I've just bought Archos 35 internet tablet device and tried to run some simple games like angry birds. The game start with just showing the first image but after 20-30 seconds it goes back to the home screen.

Also the device is very very (and I mean extremely) slow. I did not install anything… just basic stuff that is automatically installed using initial setup.

 

My questions are: can this device play games like angry birds? Is it regular behavior that the device reaction is so slow?

 

Thanks,

Ronen

The Archos 35 IT uses a processor (CPU/GPU) that should have really enough power to play Angry Birds, it may just not be very convenient with the small resistive touch screen.

Have you updated your firmware on the 35 IT ? also try a Reset Android procedure in the Settings to see if the system works faster.

Cheers

Hi and thanks for your reply.

 

I've tried to do the Reset android and also full reinitialization but still no improvament.

What do you think? On the Archos 35 page it says that it plays games like angry birds...

Playing this game is not that important for me but its an indication that something is wrong...

I will take it back to the store to be checked by a technician. Its not logical that this device is so slow (maybe being naive here...)

 

Thanks,

Ronen

One thing that I forgot, the Gen8 devices have different settings that affect the CPU speed. You can change that in Settings / About / Power management (if I remember right). It shouldn't make a big difference, but that's worth testing.

I don't whether you already tried that, but did you go to the systemmonitor and closed all the apps before starting Angry Birds? Another thing you could try to improve the performance, is installing a light custom launcher, like Zeam Launcher. Still, because of the low ram (128MB only), I would suggest you are better off with an 32IT or 43IT, but that is my personal opinion.

Hi,

 

Thanks a lot for your help!

I installed Zeam Launcher and the device is performing better.

Always (as an experienced Android user) I close all programs before launching a heavy application. Also my firmware is up to date.

I could not find where I can modify the CPU speed. Maybe I need to root the device first?

I did not know that it has only 128MB RAM. It's very little and it's not surprising that it's so slow and apps are getting closed all the time. It happens not only on Angry Birds. It happens when I open a picture, browsing webpage and …

 

The music player is working fine 🙂

 

So in summary, I will take it today to the store hoping they will take it back.

 

Thanks,

Ronen
