    Default Note 3 Super Slow wake-up/ wake-up lag

    I've had the note 3 since its was available on Verizon. I use a pattern lock screen. The issue I am having is how slow the device wakes up from the home or power button. It is completely random and seems to malfunction when timing is most crucial. I have all of my animations turned off via developer options. I deleted the lock screen all together. NOTHING has helped. I have switched out two devices for this problem. The delay can be up to 5-8 seconds. Sometimes if you click the home button the screen will pop up and disappear, pressing it more than once will literally send you into an frenzy. I will say that when operating the phone it performs better than any other phone I've owned. I know I can call Verizon and have a replacement sent overnight, but it is thoroughly annoying going through and customizing a brand new phone, over and over and over again. Does anyone have a fix for this issue??? I've checked my running apps, turned animation off, deleted my lock screen, switched devices... Please note that I am not being an anal overzealous user, this issue really effects the entire standard of usability.

    I would switch devices all together but I have the Samsung Galaxy Gear watch ( which I LOVE and got for $170 @ Verizon ) and I dont want to switch for an S4.

    I cannot deal with this issue forever, if it persists the watch and phone are going back to the big red..

    I know exactly what you're talking about in delay terms (but no where near as long as you've seen) but I can't replicate it at this moment. I've seen it take a second to turn on before but its random as you said. Just now it was instant. This issue was complained about on the Note 2 also so I wouldn't expect it to get any better. Are you seriously waiting 8 seconds? That's more than I've ever seen. Try and go without your SD Card if you have one installed. Maybe it'd causing a conflict.

    Please note that I'm using the swipe unlock with no security and I experience this. Its not any specific lock option from the looks of it.

    Perhaps a clearing of the cache in recovery then? Especially, if you have received and update.

    I've had no problems at all, I know you don't want to hear this, but I feel this is app related, factory reset, add your apps back a few at a time and test. Are you using TW or a different launcher?

    If it comes to this be sure to deselect the option to automatically restore settings and apps.

    Eclipse is absolutely correct, I should have mentioned that.

    8 seconds does occur, infrequently as a worse case. Sometimes the device doesn't respond to the initial attempt at all. I do however, have an SD card installed that was subsequently removed by the Note 3 or so i speculate, its an old card it could have just died of natural causes. Nonetheless I will remove and update to whether this has had any positive outcome. Thank you for taking the time to help me troubleshoot.

    If it continues to work you may want to consider a new SD Card if you need the external storage. I loved SD Cards but after using the Maxx I don't care anymore. I do have one installed though but if it begins to fail than I'll deal with it.

    I decided to remove my SD Card to test the performance increase and I notice a smoother wake up. I was perfectly happy with the 32GB of on board storage on my Droid Maxx so I'm going that route once again. No more SD Cards for me.

    Do you have the samsung (watch on) app? I Found this solution from another post: go to your (all apps)and find samsumg watchOn, do NOT force stop, instead, disable or turn off then restart phone. It worked on my S4.

    If you've swapped out multiple times it has to be app/usage related, we just have to determine what's causing it :-).

    Hi, new here, been using my Note 3 since October, no issue then. I noticed this delay which started around November. I had to restart the phone every four days to prevent this lag, then, January, became every two days, then today, just 24 hours after a restart, it already lagged like hell, I'm talking about 15seconds lag here. This is very annoying and I am not sure which app is causing this.

    I'm sorry, I do not know how to clear the cache in the recovery section some of you are suggesting here, not using any sort of SD card either. I have on theory, could it be because of the excessive amount of text messages stored in my device? I mean it should be a powerful device and theoretically should not lag because of the number of messages. Just go give you an idea, I have around 10k text messages from one person alone, put all together I think 12k might be a good number. Samsung default messaging app could not handle that number anymore and starts to lag at around 8.5k so I installed GO SMS which solved the typing lag.

    By the way, the lag disappears every time I restart the phone. Deleted some apps I rarely use today, and hoping for the best within 24 hours.

    I had similar issues with wake on my s4. Sounds crazy but problem was solved when I disabled personal message on lock screen and left only clock.

    Some reason I started getting a delay waking my phone so I turned off all the widgets and I still has the problem and then I disable my message and its fine... That is just ridiculous.

    How funny you mention that WatchOn app. I was reading this post getting annoyed because I sometimes see a definite delay in the screen turning on. I couldn't figure it out but then I see this answer and bam...it hits me. When I use my phone at work, the delay is perhaps 1 to 2 seconds, nothing I cant wait for, but when I'm at home on my wi-fi network, the phone will sometimes take quite a bit of time to turn the screen on. I just remembered it because the WatchOn app has the remote control widget from the lock screen. Maybe this widget is whats causing the delay. When I get home tonight, I'll disable the widget since I only use it to show off, and see what happens.

    I believe the issue is the fact that the phone is in a DEEP sleep. After the initial slow wake up, the subsequent ones are normal.

    I was experiencing a slight delay after 4.4.2 update.
    Booting into recovery mode and wiping cache cleared it up!
    Can't believe I didn't think of that before *Facepalm*
    Thanks!!

    I had this exact same problem. SD card was playing funny buggers as well and then 8 sec lag on wake up. As soon as I removed the SD card it was fixed. WTF? The SD card is fine but the phone doesn't like it.

    Same here. After removing SD card everythings just fine. Will keep monitoring a week before I make any solid conclusion.
    I am using Samsung 64GB Class 10 SD Card.
    As far as I know Android KitKat 4.4.2 has support issue for external SD. So may be Google is the one to blame.

    Do you use the official case, with the sview? If so the new update doesn't work with it. Take the case off and reset. Mine is now perfect
