    Yesterday I took a pic of my 4 month old and wanted to see the shot to check if it was blurry or not. Then my daughter moved the position she was sleeping in, so it didn't matter. My phone locked up for a solid minute so I changed my storage to internal and haven't had as big of a problem. Stupid SD cards! I have a love/hate relationship with them for sure.

    It's pretty sad when a device as powerful as the Note 4 gets bogged down by a piece of crap SD card. Shameful.
    What SD card are you using? I had a lot of trouble with my SanDisk card when I got my S4. I switched over to a Samsung card then, and haven't had any trouble since. I didn't even have to format my card for the Note 4 when I switched.

    Yeah there's no doubt it's that my card is a piece of crap. I in no way blame the Note for this behavior. I think it was a Sandisk, but I can't remember. I used it in two previous devices and just swapped it out into this one when I got it.

    Yeah, switch it out, I bet you will be glad you did.

    The reason the lag occurs for some but not all is simple. Some people already have the gallery app open in the background before using the review feature in the camera app (~1.5 second lag) while others don't (~10 second lag). The gallery app itself takes a long time to load but with it running in the background, you shouldn't experience terrible lag. HTH.

    I tried changing settings in Gallery to view only content in device (as previously suggested), and it made a big difference. Much faster. I store my photos on a Samsung Pro 64 gb, and was having the same issue the OP discussed. After the suggested change, delay is about a second (long enough to say one thousand one, one thou. Lol).

    These are both great suggestions. I have found that loading the gallery into memory before opening the camera greatly speeds up the loading of the image as well.

    And telling the device what to display in the Gallery is important, too. If you are backing up your photos to Dropbox and/or Google+, by default the gallery looks in those folders, too. That will slow down the loading of the gallery if you don't turn off those views.

    There is still a lag/hesitation if you have a lot of pictures on your device, but it isn't horrendous like it can be without making these adjustments.

    I should note that even with internal storage, without the gallery app running in the background, you will still experience substantial lag. The lag gets more severe as the number of photos and number of sources (folders) increases.

    I got a new card this weekend (went from PNY 32gb Class 10 to Samsung EVO 64gb Class 10) and now my pic reviews load a lot faster.
