Pine64 1gb running so very slowly
I've had mine for about a week, and to be honest I'm disappointed. It runs excruciatingly slowly on android. In fact it's un useable. I have a Sandisk 32gb class 10 card and a fresh image. I have an Ethernet connection to it that is good. Any ideas please?
OK guys - hang fire. My card I was using is a class 4, and my class 10 Sandisk card has some problems so I'll get a new card and report back soon.
Yea, a class 4 card won't cut it. Also, for android, any class 10 is also not a guaranteed success. You really want a good card and a solid PSU (and a thick micro USB cable). 

Few other things.

1) which android build are you using exactly ? I think its best you use either ayufan's android 6 or android 7.1 builds. 
2) android will be slow on first boot - let it sit and do its thing for a good 10 min or so. Then restart it. 
3) If you are using A 5.1 then its performance is worse than on ayufan's A6 and A7.1 images.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Thanks for the reply Luke. The PSU is the Pine one ordered alongside the Pine64.

I plan to use the Ayufan 7.1 image, and the card is on order and is a Sandisk Extreme 100mb/s rated for 4K ultra.

So it will be a day or so before I report back Smile
OK - bit of an update. My new cards arrived today. I now have two 32Gb SanDisk Extreme class 10 U3.

I loaded Android on one of them to compare with the class 4 android. Well, what a change! Android runs well. So clearly if there are problems with it running slowly, the SD card might make more of a difference than you think.

However, there is just one problem - having got Android to work I realise I just don't like it! Not the problem of the software, just personal choice. However, I also loaded the Remix OS and just how brilliant is that? I really hope it's possible to develop that, as it works so well.

Happy camper now Smile
I got the 2GB kit with the Remix OS SD card on it. I am happy with the Pine64 with 2GB, but seems Remix OS is not compatible with YouTube TV.
I do wonder if that is a hardware, or software issue.
I have one of those Android TV boxes with v6 on it and 2GB of RAM, but it is not compatible either. However, I had returned another one with version 5, and only 1GB of RAM, but they misrepresented it having Bluetooth.  It is still on my Google device list, and I see it is compatible.

That is odd, and wondering if that is hardware, or software related.
