Are you using bitmap fonts or image borders?

S60 is remarkably slow with trasparent/translucent images. Bitmap fonts are effectively such images & 9 piece image borders may also be comprised of such images.

When using image borders we suggest making pieces as large as feasable to prevent repeated image drawing which is also pretty slow.

im not using any borders, but i am using bitmap fonts a lot, basically all my text is bitmap fonts and my forms are pretty huge - thanks for the tip i will experiment with normal fonts and report back! Shame because the bitmap fonts look awesome!!
