    I am looking into buying a Samsung Galaxy S4, but heard that the S4 has significant lag issues compared to the HTC One, which is the other phone i can't decide on.

    So do any of you have any experience with lag issues or just rumors?

    It's a mixed bag, some have reported lagging and others not. Personally I have never had any lag issues. I'm on AT&T with a 32gb model.

    I wouldn't worry about it. I've owned 3 S4's (currently just 1) and they have all been flawless.

    Best way to decide: Go to a store, pick both phones up, and try them. I have a GS4, I love the GS4, but THERE IS an element of lag. Nothing major, but sometimes noticeable for the picky. Now, I haven't used the HTC One because it's still not available in my country, but they do say it runs quite smoothly. Now, the lag in the S4 is not something that will prevent you from doing stuff... it's just the UI being glitchy sometimes, during animations and window transitions. And again, it's nothing major, but sometimes you will notice it.

    Welcome to the Android family. I have the GS4 and I have no lag at all. Love the phone more than any phone I had If i could I would buy 2 more. Love the screen,SDcard,Battery,features,and much more. If you get it I bet you will enjoy it even if it lags a little it won't bother you at all.

    The only Lag I noticed is when you hit settings, it takes a split second for the settings screen to load. But that is about it.

    No lag here. This has been over blown. I had a HTC Vivid, lag was very evident. I recently had a S3 and no lag with it either. Some one should post a video of their S4 WITH lag!!

    Feel free to watch almost any S4 review video.

    OP, either phone is phenomenal with a custom ROM that eliminates bloatware.

    If you want loud sound, a bright and crisp screen, and less out-of-the-box lag, take the HTC One.
    If you want a larger screen, expandable memory & a bit bigger battery, take the Galaxy S4.

    Ugh this conversation could go on for days.

    Out of the box S4? Some say it's laggy. I personally think it's because of a few Samsung widgets.
    But I've been using Nova Launcher for about 4-5 weeks now. I don't really see any lag, but I guess that's up to the user's eye.

    Even if you watch GS4 review videos, you won't see much lag unless you're SUPER picky and actually looking for it. Choppy animations usually.

    I've had this weird occurrence when ir would just lag randomly, the whole device then just becomes smooth again, I think it's touchwhiz because since I bought Nova, it hasn't happened yet.

    Yes it does. But, whether or not it's enough to bother you.. who knows. Feedback seems to indicate that on most devices they lag is in the acceptable range given what you get for it.

    I haven't noticed it at all. It is super smooth compared to my Razr HD Maxx. That thing had lag. Only way to get rid of it was to flash an aftermarket rom and even then it wasn't immune to it. Also, all of the roms had issues. So, here I am on the Galaxy S4 and couldn't be happier.

    Yes, it does lag out of box. More you use it, more noticeable it is.
    The lagging can be really annoying sometimes.

    Will try the Nova Launcher and report ..

    Quick question. People with lag, are you on the quadcore snap dragon or the 8 core exynos? I am on the snap dragon and no noticeable lag 2 weeks in to using it. Only reboot once a week.

    Well it's certainly not just a rumor. There are many threads on many forums talking about it. It also isn't the only issue the s4 has. Here is a short list of some of the more frequent s4 problems.

    About the HTC One (which I have), although it doesn't lag it still has jittery animations in some cases. This isn't becasue of dropped frames but because HTC failed to make them smooth. An example of this is when you pinch out on the home screen and go back. This desn't stop the devie being good but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

    The S4 doesn't usually lag, but stutters with lost frames.
