    Has anyone tried this registry tweek yet? I even went as far as going all the way down to 1. I'm not sure if it's psychological, but it does seem faster.

    The source has a link to the XDA forums. There are some people there that have done it. I haven't bothered. Don't really notice any lag.

    I have tried this. I set mine from default 8 to 2 and back. I did this twice and have not noticed any differences after rebooting. But that's just me

    I've noticed that clicking on links register touches faster now. Whereas, sometimes it would take up to 3 seconds to even see some type of visual confirmation (the moving dots that signifies that IE is thinking).

    I went back in and changed the latency to 0. But kept sampling at 2.
    Things I have noticed to improve are:
    • greatly enhanced touch typing experience, specially if you type fast.
    • games are way more responsive
    • using fresh paint app I can easily see how much better and faster the brushes works
    • in Mail app, selecting multiple emails works better and more natural
    • Copy / paste is faster and more responsive
    • there is no more "missed launch" of tiles. This used to happed often when I quickly tapped a tile and it would not register. So I had to tap the tile again and press longer. After the changes I have not experienced that once yet.


    battery seems fine. I am still monitoring it.
