I agree. The phone looks like it is running faster. If not faster, then it feels like things run smoother. I wonder if making the GUI to run more consistent makes the phone look like it is running faster. Like if you hide the load screens in video games, it makes it feel like its running faster.
A lot of people quit playing for a little while or sometime a long while. You can't really force yourself to love something. I'm sure there is something that is making you lose the drive to play if you really think about it.
