    I have an SG2...only had it for a month (free upgrade from Samsung as my previous S1 died) but am struggling to improve the ease of use.

    I can't seem to find a decent calendar/organiser that looks okay on a widget, I've love some nicer looking widgets, but I've got no clue where to look.

    Plus any tips on keeping performance would be good - at the moment its amazing.

    I warn you now, I have no clue about phones.

    Porting from DHD > DS is pretty straight forward. Don't need to change too much at all.

    It'll be the 2.x kernel at fault.
    Yeah, I believe the kernel is the problem. Nexx said that the phone will reboot under intense load because of the kernel 'oop' or something.

    The DHD guys have a Lord ClocklaN kernel, and he is a master at that. He probably built the kernel so it is more stable...

    Will have a look.

    Is is worth getting Go Launcher Ex to improve the interface, or is the standard Samsung one better?

    Also, does anyone who has this phone find it lags when charging?

    Go Launcher EX and GO SMS are much better than the default launcher (homescreen) and texting application, respectively. I would also recommend Beautiful Widgets for weather purposes.

    It doesn't lag for me. :dontknow:

    Go Launcher EX is one of the best launchers, in my opinion, as it is EXTREMELY customizable. I have used it extensively in the past.

    I would definitely recommend it over the standard Samsung touch-wiz launcher. Also, Go Launcher EX has a few add-ons, including a calendar widget which I found pretty decent.

    Thanks - just having a play with it now. Looks a lot better anyway...and it should stop the snotty looks from the boyfriend (he just got a new HTC)

    Not too sure about getting the GO SMS yet - will I lose messages I already have?

    You're better off using GO calender if you are getting GO launcher. Stick a decent skin on it and they'll be no need for Android Pro Widgets.

    It's a very good launcher.

    Unless you set it up before hand then only the network can block it.

    You could try http://www.htcsense.com but not sure it's on the original desire, and again it needs setting up before hand.

    Will get a custom boot animation, that looks like one of the scary child ghosts in films, young but at least a 113% chance of killing me in my sleep.
