I haven’t factory reset a phone in a while. I’ve noticed my Pixel 4XL will be slow to return to the home screen – like it’s taking an extra second to redraw or make all the icons appear, sometimes starts with a flash of black. It has also locked up a few times in the past couple of weeks. I don’t get this "spotlight" view that supposedly came out for GA (I just get pulsing grey boxes that never populate). My call screen doesn’t always display the text on screen anymore – this one is weird – it answers, then shows a mostly black screen.
I haven’t ruled out a Google conspiracy to make me buy a Pixel 5.
I am using Action Launcher which could be contributing to the redraw/slow home screen loads (all of a sudden?).
Do you think it’s worth a factory reset to address some or all of this?
