Re: game lag and pause state

do you have a taskiller installed in your phone?

was the game from the market or is it an emulator?

are you running other heavy apps in the backgroun?

Re: game lag and pause state

the problem might be the taskkiller, you don't need the taskiller, it was needed before but now a days, it's not necessary, it drains battery and makes the phone act up.

did this happened before the update?

Re: game lag and pause state

you have to uninstall it -> turn off your phone -> take the battery out -> press and hold the power button for 5 seconds -> put the battery back on -> try again

Re: game lag and pause state

taskillers might stop some parts of the OS that are needed, or sometimes it stop certain extra permissions that a game needs or wants to use
