Strange Issue in Android only

I have an app that will connect to one of our many different units and download the onboard logs into a buffer. Then a procedure parses the data and displays it in a table.

If the data is downloaded once, the data table is filled in under 2 seconds. If the user decides to download them again for some reason, the procedure takes quite a while to run (20 seconds) and populate the data into the table. A couple of our units have 4000 records, and these take over a minute the second time.
I cannot see a reason for this big delay. It makes the app appear to have frozen, when it hasn't. In the emulator and IPhone the behavior does not happen, only on an Android device.
I have tried three different devices, two phones and a tablet.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried to manage that process on a completely different thread than the main UI thread ? that is what i would do..

Thanks, I am going to try that.
The problem actually got worse after trying to make the Android version more like the IOS version.
There is a clue in there somewhere.

Previously I have the download log on its own window. When changing to different units it was fine the first download for a new unit. In IOS I had to change it to make the entire app in one window. When I changed the Android app to all one window, switching from unit to unit still has the big delay even the first time on a unit unless the app was just opened.

I have not used threads, but the boss has. I think we can solve this.


Thanks
