    I find it quite weird that my old galaxy nexus has much better in app performance than the note 2. The note 2 seems to lag and jerk while scrolling in apps such as instagram, and the new play music app. The scrolling on my galaxy nexus is just a lot faster and smoother. Does anyone know why this is happening? Could it be because of the larger screen of the note 2? Would loading a stock android rom, such as pacman or CM 10.1, help fix this performance issue in apps? Thanks!

    You do know that you're comparing two different devices with two different appearances when it comes to UI right? (Galaxy Nexus with stock vanilla android and Galaxy Note 2 with bloated TouchWiz)

    ...and yes, any AOSP-based ROM would have better app performance than TouchWiz due to lack of OEM and carrier provided software.

    Yes I know what I'm comparing. And I'm wondering if stock Android makes that big of a difference.

    if you are rooted, you can keep touchwiz, and install a different kernal, and see how that improves your performance..and yes, a stock AOSP rom will outperform a TouchWiz one 99% of the time..
