    Got to admit I am trying very hard not to close apps all the time, I just can't help myself, I suppose it was starting at the beginning of domestic PC use with a computer with 5 1/4 floppies, so memory is precious to me.

    Peter Norton (Of Norton anti virus before it became crap) wrote a good book about how memory is like your desk it's where you put what you are working on (Unlike your storage which is of course your desk draws and filling cabinets) and only a slow worker keeps tons of crap on their desk.

    My guess is that he has a ton of apps running in background.
    No, only UC Browser. If you are referring to me.

    Got to admit I would be thinking of desperate measures.

    The device is perfectly capable of handling many more songs and at a speed better than you are getting, my wife has 8.1 and it works much faster.

    I take it you have the songs on something else so you could always copy them back if needed ?

    One quick question are the songs on the phone or SD card?

    I was thinking to start your collection again, but I think you have to somehow make sure things get flushed out of the system properly.

    Do you have a PC that you can copy the songs back and forwards from? And if so what OS does it have as in 8.1 etc.?

    One other question, how do you have your songs organised, I am into albums so I tend to pick and album and listen to it, I don't know if that makes life any easier?

    And I suppose we better ask, do you have lots of apps running in the background or is it as slow after a restart as well?

    Yes it is on SD Card (Sandisk Class 10)

    I have PC and it has Windows 7.
    I always use songs list to listen songs and sometime playlist.

    and at last
    Are you telling that reset my phone again and format SD Card?

    Well I have no problem in doing that but I doubt that it will solve my problem.
    but yes it's been a while since I format SDCard.

    Not telling you, you are your own man, but just thinking what I would do, and if it ain't the end of the world it would be worth considering.

    But don't jump out the window just yet.

    Would it be worth putting some of the songs directly on the phone to see if they work better....

    Always try the line of least resistance first as long as it's logical to do it.

    I reset my phone, format SD card.

    and transfer all songs in phone memory.

    it does improve the speed but still taking 10+ to play music.(between 10-15 secs)

    I'll use other 3rd party apps for now on.

    thanks for the suggestion.

    No problems mate, shame it doesn't work for you, although you could still speed up your finger work on the phone

    my fingers are fast enough but if your are commenting this on the basis video then it was little difficult to hold phone on one hand and using other hand to operate phone. I was using my right hand but actually I am left handed
