    I have an icon that's 320 x 960. Most of the icon is blank, but will this lag my iPhone in some way?

    Edit: I forgot, will it also drain the battery? D=

    it might lag when moving icons. If you have good enough ram then it wont do anything bad

    hm, ram? as in memory available on the iphone? Also I forgot to ask if it'll also drain the battery cause I found it a strange coincidence that shortly after I put the icon in there, my battery was at 10%...but that was after a reboot.

    Ok thanks for all the information. I've decided I'll get rid of that huge icon and find another way to do what I was trying to do...XD

    no, it won't lag or drain battery faster

    question: you using this?

    edit: @j-phone's last post, yeah a mobile substrate thing would run in the background and drain battery faster, but simply having a large icon would change nothing

    Well, the icon was basically this:

    So it shouldn't drain the battery since it's just a large icon?

    Also, no I'm not using that theme. I've never seen it before until now, but wow that looks pretty cool o.o

    It will drain the battery, but no different then any other icons, and the effect is so minimal, it makes no large difference.
