    Default Nexus 4 extreme Lag

    My nexus 4 (using kitkat 4.4.2) from last few month is lagging a lot. The performance of my phone has even degraded in benchmark apps also. The phone remains normally at 38-40°c and if wifi or mobile data is used, the temp. reaches 49°c.
    I did factory reset 3 times even switched from davlik to art but nothing helps. The lag is so much that I had to uninstall several graphic intensive games.
    And another problem is my phone most of the times charges in usb mode from the wall charger. I have to plug in and out several time to make it charge in ac mode.
    Some of the snapshots are attached with this.
    Please help me !

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you tried booting into Safe Mode to see if the lag is still there? If not, then there is probably some app that you keep reinstalling after each reset that is affecting performance.

    The tweaks are available within the settings of all recent Android phones in a section called “Developer options.”

    This section might be hidden on some phones, but it’s very easy to access. On many phones, you just have to open a certain page in the settings and tap a button seven times. Use Google to figure out how to enable Developer options on your phone if it’s currently hidden (for example, search “enable developer options HTC One”).

    Once you have access to Developer options, simply scroll until you find the following three settings, which may be located on the main screen or within an “Advanced” subsection:

    Window animation scale

    Transition animation scale

    Animator animation scale

    Tapping each of the three aforementioned settings will reveal that it’s set to “1x” by default. If you want to speed up your phone or tablet dramatically, simply change each of those three settings to “.5x” — that’s it...restart your device

    I'm wondering if kitkat did something with the animation times. I've seen this issue as well as this suggestion come up a lot across several forums since 4.4 arrived on more devices

    Changing animation speed is not the solution. My apps, games are lagging, animation speed would just make the fade in fade out effects faster.
    And I am starting to believe that using too much features of developer options affects the hardware performance.
