    Default Swiftkey lag on S4?

    I'm not sure if this happens to anyone else but my typing lags incredibly on my S4 when it is plugged in and charging. Never noticed this happening on any of my past phones and I can't pin point it to anything else except for the fact that it's charging.

    If I unplug it from the charger, I can resume typing normally (which is usually very fast and guestimate-ish). Otherwise if I type at what would be my usual rate when it is plugged in, it will skip over a bunch of letters or predict something totally random from a combination of every third or forth key that I pressed. I notice that if I type super slowly the problem isn't so bad.

    I've got the latest update available for my S4 and for Swiftkey!

    Go to System Settings > Applications > Swiftkey and clear the cache. See if that helps. If it doesn't, hopefully it's something related to the update which can be easily patched in the next update(s) of Swiftkey.

    I notice no lag or slowness with my N5, so it could be device specific.

    I'm not having any problems with it on my Note 3, so it's not specific to the phone. It could, as Cyanod said, be related to screen animation - I always have mine at 0, no animation. Animation just slows things down. (Sorry, I'm left-brained.)
