Hello everyone,

 

I started using Edge on my entry-level laptop, and I absolutely love it. Filled with features and SegmentHeap drastically reduces the amount of RAM being used, and it's way faster than Chrome or any other browser I've used. However, on my phone, it's a whole other story. I am using a Samsung Galaxy A50, a 2019 mid-range phone and pretty much every browser performs fine, except Edge, it is horribly slow. It takes ages to load webpages, and when they do load, scrolling and navigating is choppy and slow. I don't understand why this is happening, as every other browser works fine. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? I have switched back to Chrome painfully on both my laptop and phone, as syncing between them is very important to me.

 

Thanks =)=)=)

@djskate2611 Thanks for reaching out, and welcome to the MSFT Edge Insider community! I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing some performance issues on mobile. Can you please confirm what version and channel you're using? And if you haven't yet, can you please submit feedback and diagnostic data through the browser?

Hey @fawkes thanks for the reply. I jus sent some feedback, and am using version 45.06.4.5042 of stable Edge Android, which I'm pretty sure is the latest stable version. Hope you can help. :grinning_face: Bye for now.

@djskate2611 Great, thanks! The diagnostics submitted through that will be the best indicator for what's happening. If you have any external extensions enabled, I'd also recommend disabling them and seeing if that boosts the performance.

@fawkes I am facing the same issue on my Android phone (Redmi Note 5 Pro). Is the root cause of this issue identified? I will send the diagnostics data through feedback as requested by you.

@saurabhjain I'm sorry to hear that you're encountering some performance issues too. Yes, please do send diagnostics! And can you confirm exactly what behaviors you're seeing?

@fawkes I had sent the diagnostics when I reported the issue.
Basically everything is super slow, like even google search. Other browsers are working perfectly fine, but only Edge is slow. I am using Edge on Redmi Note 5 pro (Xiaomi - India variant)

100% agree, edge android is one of the worst browser I've ever used. Very Very slow......

@hussain5416_ 

The same by me. I'm using Edge on Xiaomi and is a disaster.  My laptop goes smoothly with Edge. 
I'm changing to Chrome on mobile. Too bad that we can synchronization both.

Highlighted
Yeah, because Edge uses Microsoft account whereas chrome uses a Gmail account. One of them should have an option to use other account but that seems very unlikely.

Because of this might need to switch back to Chrome on Windows.

Yeah, I also find that the translation of the pages is not that successful all the time. I think that they need to give more effort on the mobile version.
