    I have a weather widget on my phone that came with the phone (I didn't download it) and every time I unlock my phone the time on the widget is behind and then it refreshes and its back to normal. So for example the last time i locked my phone was 13:41 and when I unlocked it at 14:03 the time on the weather widget was on 13:41 and then it refreshed and came to 14:03.

    This has been happening for some time now and its starting to annoy me because it seems to be slowing the phone down when i unlock it. There's just that lag that annoys me.

    The weather widget is called: Weather (Version 4.2.16 by AccuWeather.com)
    Phone Details: LG L90
    Model Number: LG-D405n
    Android Version: 4.4.2 KitKat (Came Built in)
    Phone Purchased end of August 2014.
    LG Software: V10b-234-30

    What you are looking for is animation, try some on the play store, can't remember which one has it

    I personally don't like the AccuWeather widget, I much prefer the TheWeatherChannel widget.

    But, it does not make any difference which one you choose, the results are pretty much going to be the same. When you unlock the screen, the widget senses that and sends a Refresh data request.

    On my S5 it does not prevent anything else from happening. But I have turned off all animations, motions and gestures.

    I also turn off the internet everytime the screen is locked, so it is impossible for any updates to occur while the phone is idle.... and to me, that is exactly the way it should be....... no data, no wasted battery power.....

    • I've been sick the last 3 days, and my S5 is still in the middle 65ish percent range for battery life. Very occasional use just to look at email, took a couple of phone calls, reviewed the Settings menus looking for answers to forum user questions. Total screen time? about 90 minutes in 3 days, thus the 64% battery reading on it now.


    I think you are going to have to learn to live with it.
