    Default lock screen

    hey guys loving my nexus 5 rooted with some cool tweaks. just wondering if you use the stock lockscreen or you have a different one installed, thoughts ?

    I am currently using the stock lock screen. I had Go Locker up until about 3 hrs ago then I found out here (in another thread a little lower) that it doesn't actually lock your phone, and you can easily bypass the PIN # screen by touching the recent apps softkey and clicking whatever program you want.
    That being said, i'm now using the stock lock. BUT I'm not sure I like it because when I press my PIN # it really lags and leaves the actual # visable for about 3 seconds before it turns to the dot. Why does it take so long? I don't want anyone looking over my shoulder and seeing my pin b/c I feel like you can easily get my number with it lagging like that.

    Do you notice that too? Or am I being picky? lol

    I removed the lock screen because I don't take my N5 outside (it's still not on a carrier yet) and I don't like the extra step of swiping. But this does make me think about adding back the pin to my other phone which I do use when I go out. It's inconvenient but safer. :-/

    Oh, I missed that part about the pin being laggy. Hmm. I wonder why.

    Do you have a launcher installed rooted?

    Hi Dave! I use Nova Launcher and I'm not rooted.
    I guess the lag isn't the hugest deal, I'm pretty sure my phone wont get stolen but if its around the house I don't want people snooping.

    That's fair enough. I use Nova not noticed any lag on my n5 or n7. Do you have any animations on?

    No major animations really. I think its just set up for medium speed nothing fast for them. Maybe I should change that?

    You could give it a try. I used to use widget locker and Nova using animations once I turned them off there was no lag not saying it will sort your problem but it's worth a try
