Java is slowing Android’s growth and Kotlin is not the answer

The real problem came out of the first paragraph. You’re using a macbook air. They are a fraction of the performance of a regular macbook, which is less still than a powerful desktop computer.

Get a Ryzen or i7 multicore. Problem solved. Emulators don’t take long to load on my rig. Be sure you’re using GPU hardware acceleration. I run it on linux and have heard of issues with Windows at least. Not sure if there’s performance issues in OSX.

I would recommend quad-core or better with SSD & 16GB or better when running emulators. It’s pretty easy for the rig to hit 15GB & I’m using a 27" imac for looking up documentation or anything else. Don’t even have a browser open on the linux rig.

What are your system specs exactly? Do you use hardware acceleration on your emulator? Do you have an SSD?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
