micro lag or pauses on lollipop version 29

  • Hello, I'm getting pauses when I'm browsing with opera, latest version on the market, usually when I'm scrolling and reading down the page, opera will become irresponsive and there is a delay in scrolling or will respond when I press home button or system bar,

    I have been saving the logcat but I don't really understand what it could be, I haven't checked logcat before this started happening

    Android lollipop
    Nexus 5
    any ideas

    Thanks

  • Thanks, we'll look into it and see if we can figure this one out.

  • Thanks I submitted a bug via the app, I was told this forum was friendly so I posted it here so we could discuss if anything new comes up.been monitoring this for a while now,

    No other apps or browsers does this on my phone so I been trying to find the cause.

    Been using this app since gingerbread days and don't want to change.

    Thanks

  • Since the Opera 29 release sometimes Opera makes my phone extremely laggy/pausing for some seconds too (KitKat).

  • I cleared data and tried on a blank state, it still occured,

  • The gut says it has something to do with sync and the ErrnoException in your logs, but I'm trying to keep my Mrs happy and not work too much on the weekends :rolleyes: so I'll have to get back to you after the weekend. Do you both have sync enabled / disabled? Does it make any difference if you sign in / out of sync?

  • I have been having a similar problem on my Android tablet. Keeps asking if I want to close. Its been happening a lot for the last 2 weeks or more. Constantly stops and lags behind.I have turned off sync, turned on and off turbo, nothing seems to work. I love Opera and all my bookmarks are there and I don't want to change to Chrome.

  • So its due to an update, I recall previous versions were working fine without that sync tab,
    I tried again from blank state and its still there, without signing in.

    I will look for an older version and let you know.

  • I believe version 27 solves it for me, v28 had the same issues.
    I still get the same catlog error though
    Lag/latency would be up to 5secs, home button or recents would make it respond faster

  • @russnz75, Do you have some page which you can reproduce it on? Tried looking at an article on engadget.com (mobile user-agent) which will load a new article when you reach the bottom of the page. I tried scrolling up and down for a while without any noticeable lag. I tried on a Nexus 5.

  • I updated to the current one on the market,
    I'm using desktop mode if thats the reason since google wants more sites to be mobile friendly, some are not optimized,

    Text wrap off

    Engadget worked fine

    Google.com,eventfinder,nzherald,XDA developers,gsm arena gave me a delay, some up to 5 secs if I leave it alone.I will update the list

    I will keep you posted.

  • Perhaps additional data can be retrieved monitoring ramz system memory usage. When compressed memory is at highest (optimized) level Opera Browser is kinda 'tight'.

  • Yea I think that's what it is

    Various posts about Lollipop ram management and people stating theres ram leaks which are not fixed.
    System not releasing ram after use,

    In cached apps there's up to 8-10 background opera processes, 400-500mb cached, no other issues apart from that.

    And why that didn't happen in Opera 28?

    I'm on KitKat.

    We enabled texture compression by default in 29. This feature will compress the tiles on the page so that we will in the end use less memory. The process of compression shouldn't be slow but it varies by device. What you could test is disabling this feature, you can do this by going to opera://flags and disabling "Tile compression" (from Default to Disabled).

    What kind of device are you using?

  • This thread may have prevented me from abandoning Opera. I installed the last beta of Opera 29 because of Opera turbo, and real synchronization (I thought). The beta looked very good. Then Opera 29 final appeared. I replaced the beta with the final, and everything got really slow. So slow that I've run an anti-spyware program to see if I'm infected and I installed task managers to see if something was eating up processor cycles. Nothing made any real difference.

    One of the features of v. 29 was supposed to be improved cache management. Even reloading pages from the cache was irritatingly slow.

    The tile compression feature looks to me (an ex-programmer) like a workaround to try to fix poor memory management at the expense of processor cycles. Maybe Opera should try to fix the underlying problem.

    My HTC Sensation 4G was a high-end phone 4 years ago. Processors are quicker now, apparently, but my phone is not slow even now. No other app is slow. I bought a high-end phone so I wouldn't have to replace it too soon. There's still no reason for me to replace this phone.

    But Opera had me wondering. Something was slowing my phone down.

    I just disabled tile compression. Things look much better but I don't use the phone much at night. I'll let you know in a couple of days whether this has fixed my problem. If it does, then I'll suggest the Opera not make the assumption that everybody has the latest and greatest hardware. Keep a few older phones around to see whether this kind of processor-intensive workaround will work without wasting several days of my time trouble-shooting.

  • Further to my May 20 comment, disabling Tile Compression made a huge difference. Pages load quicker and pages loaded from the cache are much quicker, even though I'm using turbo most of the time. But Opera 29 has other problems.

    On theglobeandmail.com, occasionally the page doesn't load successfully when started from Speed Dial. The X shows the page is trying to load, but nothing happens. And when I click on a news story, one time out of 5 the story doesn't load successfully, and I see a blank page. I have to hit reload or sometimes have to return to the main page and click the story again. The same happens on reuters.com.

    I didn't notice these problems in the last beta for Opera 29, although I only used it for about a week. Were any internal settings other than Tile Compression changed in the final version of Opera 29? Turning off Tile Compression made a big improvement. I'd be glad to change any other setting that might be responsible for the above problems. And I will report the results if you can suggest anything I should try out.

    By the way, Opera 29 is using a lot of memory, as evidenced by the fact that the HTC Sense user interface gets crowded out of memory, and must reload itself when I close Opera. I'd rather live with this than the problems I mentioned above until Opera solves the memory problems.

    I'm also curious to know why I tell Opera to save the password for my ISP homepage time after time but the password isn't saved until the tenth try or so.

  • You can also try Opera Max VPN, (got a be a full box kit) Webrtc flag must be disabled in this case and the reason is not so obvious but you can trust me on that.

    Try to stick to the topic. Opera Max has nothing to do with rendering performance in Opera for Android.

    Thanks for your many useful posts.

    Is there a site where I can download the last beta for Opera 29 for android? I would like to try it again to see if it solves my remaining problems with the final version. Thank you.
