    I have the note 3 for two years and dont see any of the lag as you say every phone even apple will have a little here an there but you must understand that the note 4 is more then just apps like the iPhone it's trying to replace your need for a computer so it's doing a whole lot more then your typical smartphone

    I bought the Note 4 from day one and Im coming from the Nexus 5. Long story short I dont know if its 'lag' or just the way touchwhiz is coded but it seems like it takes a half second longer to do things on the Note 4 than on the Nexus 5 which is almost a year old. I love the Note 4 for all of its features but touchwhiz is giving me growing pains. At first I thought it was just me but my wife had a moto x, and then I got her the S5 the same day I got note and she has been having same complaints. Issues so far are
    - sporadic apps closing (especially hangouts, but random apps as well)
    - sometimes the screen hangs for a half a second before doing what you tell it to do
    -Taking pictures and then immediately going to view them causes the app to hang for a full second if not longer before opening the picture to view.
    - S voice simply doesnt work. Well it wont talk back to me and I cant understand why. I started a thread on it but nothing has solved my problem.

    For everything the Note does great it cant seem to do everyday tasks right. I have noticed that if I celar out the recent apps it is much faster but I dont seem to understand why it idles at using over 2gbs of RAM when everything is closed? Its because of these little things that I am reconsidering taking the Note 4 back and getting the Nexus 6. Ik I will lose out on features but the features mean nothing if I have to struggle between switching apps. Anyone else notice these things? And is anyone else considering switching back to stock android?
    So tried of you guys talking about the lag of the note 4 I have the n3 and almost never do I noticed it you guys are just looking for things to complain about so you can get on the net a bad mouth samsung go back to your dumb iphone and and sale your note 4 to someone's e who's been waiting in line for one please

    So you didn't experience lag and that means it isn't possible others have? If someone experiences lag they are just trying to put down Samsung? Using an iPhone is a bad thing? You don't even have the Note 4 and you're refuting the claims of people that do because the phone you do have doesn't lag?

    Fanboyism works in multiple directions buddy.

    Now that's an unbiased response. At least in this forum, people will admit to the existence of some of Touchwiz's shortcomings. Elsewhere, people will tell you that the "perceived"lag is a figment of your imagination.

    Why so much animosity? Isn't the point of an ANDROID forum is talk about everything Android, good or bad? Like someone mentioned just because you haven't experienced any lag on the the note 3 doesn't mean others haven't either.

    And I have had both note 3 and 4 and they both had some lag.

    And just because we're talking about issues with the note and Samsung does not mean were apple lovers. There are OTHER Android manufactures besides Samsung...

    Oh and yes I will sell my Note 4 to you, since I'm pre-ordering the Nexus 6. I'll sell it to you at what I paid for the Note 4, $825 plus tax, and I'll throw in the Touchwiz and lag, all for free!

    Ahh. Sucks man. The benchmarks on this rom are unbelievable. People are getting 48,000 and 49,000 on antutu. Quite impressive. Right now im at 43000. But the rom needs to settle first. After the first few days this baby is supposed to really fly.

    Although I don't have the Note4, I'm looking to get the Note 4. I've seen videos where the phone does have some lag and hiccups. Rooting the phone can eliminate that problem. But for the average "joe" who does not know how to root. I can see it becoming a problem.

    Switching to AOSP ROM, even if folks found way around Verizon's lockdown, looses a lot of the Samsung extras that are good (one-handed mode, stylus, better camera, multi-window, etc). Plus the inherent stability and security risks of custom ROMs.

    Samsung should not be putting people in this bind.

    I'm surprised if custom TouchWiz ROMs can help lag in Recents. Seems unlikely those ROMers will rewrote that whole code. But may be there's a cache they csn increase? If so, Samsung should be patching that. Will they be...

    Maybe it's a simple update and we will get a release shortly? For me the biggest problem is not opening the recent apps launcher but actually clicking a recent app in the launcher.

    Solution: Click Recents... Go get a cup of coffee... (ready by the time your back) Select app you want... Stir in the sugar while it comes up. :-)

    That's a problem for those of us that take our coffee black.

    Google this article and do what it says and it will be faster than fast (except laggy Hangouts): "Galaxy Note 4 Features: What to Enable and Disable"

    I'm experiencing similar issues with my T-Mobile Note 4. It's very random, because sometimes it performs snappily, and other times it is actually slower than my Galaxy S4. I see a lot of lag when moving between apps occasionally, however my worst issue is dealing with the keyboard. I had initially been using google keyboard and would see a noticeable lag that affected accuracy, so I switched to the stock keyboard. The stock keyboard was great for a few days, but is now even worse. It will freeze as I am typing a message, and the words I was typing, it will actually put into the message 2-3 times (forcing me to go back and edit it). It will also experience the same accuracy/lag issues that I had with Google Keyboard.

    Another thing I thought was weird was when I tested out ART vs. Dalvik for a few days. I switched to ART and rebooted and waited for it to compile all the apps. However, after this, every time I would reboot the device I would have to wait for it to recompile about 140 apps, every single reboot. Of course, each time this happens it runs down the battery a lot, and the phone would get very hot. So, I eventually switched back to Dalvik. Someone told me that this isn't supposed to happen, and ART is supposed to compile all the apps once, but not on every reboot. So, I'm not sure what's happening. I want to love the device, but now it's too late to return it and so I'm thinking I'll just try to swap it with the retailer.
