View Full Version : Is my droid x ok?

Ok. So I underclocked my x to 800 mhz but its running as if its at 1200 mhz. Im using droid overclock (jrummy16) and launcher pro and the stock rom. I did a pi benchmark test and it came out to 414 milliseconds putting me in 6th place. Is there something wrong with my phone that I should be worried about?

That sounds like fun. Let me try! No crashes?

Nope. It runs perfect. One thing I forgot to mention was the it has over 200 mb of free ram most of the time. I think that's what's making it runs so good.

Free ram doesn't make it run better. Android is not windows. In android if you're not using ram it doesn't get utilized elsewhere. You want to use as much ram as possible to make it run smoother.

Why would they call it "Random Access Memory" if it isn't readily available?
I think that it is a valid point to save resources for better usage of the device.

Why would you worry if you underclocked? Android doesn't even need 1ghz to run smooth lol. Now later on as android progresses it will need it but not right now. I have mine running at 700mhz and running just as good as it did at 1ghz.
