    Default Performance issues? Really?

    With this hardware set? How crappy is TouchWiz anyway? Now that these last minute reviews are coming out, we're hearing about lag and stutter. Can't describe how much that pisses me off. I've been following every review and hanging on every word about how flawless this thing is. I'm pre-ordered on Verizon so I still have a week or whatever. Why is it OK to just lie in your product review? It's all going to come out when we get our hands on this thing and start the usual screaming. I'm flaming out here...

    Every real world review from regular people have said no lag. Why not use the phone yourself.

    I have the phone for 2 days now and I'm coming from S4. This phone is fast no lag what so ever. When I got my s4 i was able to see some lag and I thought it is okay, but this note 3 is amazing.

    I'll report back when I have mine. Just can't understand the disparity in the "professional" reviews. Someone posted below a large roundup of the latest reviews. A few of them are a lot less than flattering on the performance issue. I doubt they're making it up. Glad to keep hearing otherwise I guess, but it should be across the board. Did they get lemons? Pre-release software?

    I read that the Note 3 was so fast it could teleport you to the future. Zero lag.

    I take it you guys have seen this review?

    I am almost considering canceling my preorder.



    Need to hear from other owners to see if it is really this bad

    (particularly the opening of the gallery app)

    The Note 3 isn't going to magically correct issues inherent to Android. All levity aside, I think the Note 3 is just about as fast a phone as you're gonna find. There will always be someone, somewhere, in some parallel universe that says the fastest hardware still lags. I've not seen any reports (credible or not) of poor performance on the Note 3.

    Maybe if you gave us the links to those " less than flattering" reviews, we could help answer your questions?

    Consider that some of the reviews are based on the Exynos processor instead of the SnapDragon, some reviewers were using pre-release versions, and international versions of the phones. And that there will be subtle differences between phones also based on what "extra" stuff each carrier may have put on their particular model.

    And even with that on those reviews I have seen there appears to be no appreciable lag on the screen. Seriously, I would like to see you point out articles that have negative comments about the Note 3. It doesn't mean the other reviewers are lying; it means that people with different needs and points of view are going to have differences in experience with the phone. That's why we have multiple reviews and look forward to feedback from other people in these forums in the first place.

    I tried to read through most of the review. It gave off a slightly negative perspective overall. I've seen a lot worse, however.
    Maybe the settings for the gallery were set to sync up about 20 social feeds every time it opened. Who knows?
    Maybe the reviewer just got a buggy device. Maybe there is some suspect memory card inside. If this was an issue on every device, I am sure we would have heard something by now.

    Guys give it a try for yourself. If it lags.. Well.. That's why companies have 14 day return policies.

    To me, it's a lot like the craplets and bloatware a new PC usually comes with. You have to go in and delete, disable, tweak settings, update software and get it to work the way you want it to. Then, you see how if it's laggy or not for your particular uses. I've seen a number of things in the reviews I'll be disabling.

    But over 2 minutes to open Gallery?

    Would any other actual owners like to chime in and tell us if they
    have the same problem?

    Yes, I'm planning on it. But my reasons aren't going to be everyone's reasons.

    • I want the screen size and the display reviews have all been quite good.
    • The speed is good even if Samsung is fudging the benchmarks.
    • It has good expandabiltiy (battery/SD)
    • It has excellent community and marketplace support meaning ROOT/ROM and plenty of good accessories as well as Samsung being reasonable about updates to the OS and Touchwiz even if you don't ROM.


    Planned workarounds
    • Root to freeze/disable the bloat I don't want from Touchwiz. Plus this gives me the complete power of Tasker.
    • Equalize the external speaker. This is more for those times I want to share something with a small group of people. See next item for explanation.
    • Upgrade my headphones -- this is also because I have a hearing impairment and my needs of an external speaker would be disruptive to those around me in general.

    About the that specific reviewer. Just want to post a observation I had with my OG NOTE. A few months back the update to 4.1.2 came out and after doing the upgrade it was a complete mess with the gallery app as well. Many people commented about it and how it was basically unusable. I experienced this myself and it presented itself in much the same way the guy in that review is saying. I have a drop box and Google+ linked to my OG note as well. Basically after some time though and a few more cycles of opening the gallery and letting it run through some stuff it works fine. It is't as fast as i would like, but it doesn't take anything close to the amount of time this guy is talking about now. It did though when it was first upgraded to 4.1.2.

    I would suspect this has something to do with content created outside of the phone being processed and indexed by the phone. I come to that conclusion because to correct the problem I did a factory reset in my troubleshooting as a step to try to correct it. I suspect the problems this guy is having is because he linked all his stuff to it. Given time it would of corrected itself.

    As far as fudging the numbers. I am not sure I believe that either. It isn't uncommon practice to push a machine to a max performance mode in certain circumstances if it is needed. Now if it was overclocking the CPU and GPU then that would be a big issue. The best example i can think of for this is PC's where gamers disable speedstep or cool n' quite to make the cpu run at full clock all the time. It is common in PC's and does make a difference.

    Something about the Ars Technica review stinks like ****. The battery life is terrible? Really?

    Default Re: Performance issues? Really?

    It depends on the test. Most sites do a looping video playback to test the battery. Or an opinion from the reviewer based on their subjective view of normal/heavy use.
    The Note 3 does very well in the looped video playback tests and has done well in subjective use too. The Ars technica review would seem to be dependent on how the system ramps up for new page views. Apparently, the G2 has a more efficient design for that than the Note 3.

    yeah, that gallery crap was weird. They said in stock form it's unusable. What happens if they had closed the app and reopened. or if they had closed the app, removed it from the recent app list, and they reopened the gallery. Does it still take that long?
