Is it giving the hourglass often? 4.5.0.69 has sped up every device I've loaded it on.

My guess is that it's scanning your media card. If you open the media app does it say "scanning?"

If it goes on too long...more than a couple hours then do the following:

Yeah, give it some time. If you have lots of music and pictures it can take a while.

A new OS may fix that issue. Give the new OS a try and post back if you're still having issues.
