    I don't know if this is just my OCD getting the best of me, but for some reason the speed at which the texts appear when I type in places like messages, FB comments, different forums, etc. have varying speeds, which isn't something I noticed before until 2 days ago. Before I switched to Google Keyboards, my Zen UI one was extremely noticeable in comparison because at the very least the former only the text was showing up a bit delayed, while on the other hand the latter was both(text and actual keyboard).

    I use an Asus Zenfone max. Anyone know what might be the problem?

    Welcome to Android Central! It may have to do with those apps or sites. Poorly coded apps or glitchy sites could cause choppy text entry.

    It happens to a number of sites. One glitch I've encountered, in fact, it just happened as I was typing this reply, is that text will stop registering as I type, even though haptic feedback continues. Then, I'll tap the Back button, and all missing typed text renders instantly. Occasionally, it will skip letters that were typed, and I have to go back and insert them. But yeah, web sites have variances in how they're set up and render when typing. I can dig your frustration!

    It can also depend on what the app/site is doing as you type. For example, many search sites like to guess your search string as you type. This can easily slow things down.

    What's weird about this is that this hasn't happened in those websites(Spacebattles forums, wikias) before but it did a few days ago. Even after switching to Google Keyboard the slightly delayed appearance of text still happens, it's just that the keyboard itself that doesn't lag anymore.

    Have you already tried wiping the cache partition? https://www.hardreset.info/devices/a...m1/wipe-cache/

    Is there any difference between this and just wiping out the cache for all apps?

    The system cache partition is different from individual app caches.

    I assume going to my storage and choosing "wipe cache for all apps" would have the exact same effect. In which case yes, I already did this just last week.

    No, as I mentioned, app caches are different from the system cache partition. It's still worth wiping the system cache, and there's no harm in doing so.
