    Hi Xperts,

    Since I upgraded to Kit Kat, when I try to type using the phone keyboard, there is a slight lag and what I hate the most is, the screen/keyboard just zooms in (with a blue border) and I need to exit the app to restore it back to its normal size
    Anyone seen something like this and any suggestions?

    Thanks !

    Try clearing the app data and cache on the keyboard you are using

    Go to settings/apps/all then select the keyboard you use.. Clear app data and cache.

    It's not just your phone mate. My phone has been doing that ever since the kit lat version of the keyboard was released. The lag is horrible, but I guess I gotta live with it. Time for a new phone!

    sucks, not sure why something as basic as this was not fixed before pushing in such a major update

    My phone lagged itself to death just typing that post. My tablet is better, but still a bit of lag

    Try setting your phone to ART in developer settings. It moves a bit faster on my nexus 4

    I'm using kit Kat with google keyboard and there is no such lag.. I've had it before but a factory reset fixed the issue.

    so will a factory reset not wipe out all data from the phone?
    and should it not set it back to pre-update times?

    Careful if you do a factory reset. It'll also wipe out your internal sdcard. Make sure you back it up first. I did a factory reset on my MotoX last week and all my pictures were deleted. It wasn't like my Galaxy Nexus, where a factory reset kept my internal sdcard intact.

    You will lose everything so back it up.

    This reset should help. I would wipe your cache partition also.
