    Default My Note 3 is slow at loading things?

    Ok so when i first got the phone
    and i was using the "FaceBook" and "PlayStore"
    the pictures were loading quick, but after a few days
    the pictures were loading really slow for some reason

    for example the playstore app pictures won't load for a good 10sec+
    only a few of them have the picture loaded up.

    im using my home WIFI and its got decent fast speed.

    any solution?

    How many apps are running all the time and what are they, social media, weather, finance apps that update continuously? Is your phone using lots of WiF bandwidth and / or mobile data?

    What apps have you added to the phone that are running? Have you checked to see what's running under "Application manager"? Is your battery life taking a hit as well? Have you looked at your active applications widget to see what's running?

    It may well be time for you to reset the phone back to factory and reload your apps and data. If you can't nail down the corruption you have on the phone, that will be your only option. You aren't really providing us with enough information to make a better assessment, so other than what I posted I can't offer you anything more.

    I've noticed mine does this. When I look at how much RAM is being used, it's very high. I just clear the memory and all is well again. Hope this can help.

    Ive seen the play store load slow from time to time and i have to thing its a play store issue and not my phone.
    The device still seems snappy to me and i have to think those pics are being loaded on every damn phone that opens the play store. LOL

    I had a 24 hour problem where all the Google account sync settings were re-ticked to sync and it kept wanting me to agree to Picasa. Anytime I tried to sync there was an temporary error message and a red icon next to my Google account name. Try touching your account name to see if all sync option settings are ticked and untick.
    *This was with Sync off initially. I got a notification after update and from when I tried Gallery.
    May be a different issue. Screenshots available.

    This may or may not help but I was having similar issues over Wi-Fi at home. I had a decent router before and would get varied speeds from 2 Mbps to 20 Mbps. I bought a new router with 802.12 a\c and it's now showing 100Mbps on my note 3. No more loading issues. Hooray for note 3 a/c compatibility.

    Wife's note 3 has had this problem since she got it. Facebook, instagram, gmail, hangouts, etc all don't load on wifi. Not just at home, but at work too. On 4g everything loads quick. On the same WiFi, all my apps on my moto load quick.

    Tried hard resets, auto switch turned off under network settings, router changes, setting changes, even got a new note 3. Nothing worked.

    Turn on airplane mode, then turn on WiFi. Everything works perfectly. If I turn airplane mode back off, I'm back to the same problem. Turning off mobile data off alone didn't solve this problem. Airplane mode had to be on.

    Weird, but at least she can use wifi

    Maybe turn off auto network switch?
