    It was perfect on the t-mobile variant but I find the Verizon variant very laggy to the point of unusable. And knowing how slow Verizon updates their phones it will probably be this for a while. Seriously considering selling it for a droid turbo or perhaps a G3 or if I can get my hands on a nexus 6. The phone on t-mobile was perfect and very fluid but this one on Verizon is very laggy

    Sorry that you are having problems. I have had mine since Verizon release date and don't see any lag, other than the recent apps menu

    Turn the animations off. It makes a big difference.

    Yeah I'm seeing it just between changing apps or flipping home screens on the Google now launcher . Very weird since it was perfect on the t-mobile variant . I think it might be something with the Verizon skin os.

    I would contact Verizon customer support. They should be able to troubleshoot it and or give you a warranty replacement. I am not seeing lag in those areas on my Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

    Curious as to how warranty exchange works ? Did it with t-mobile and still waiting for my plan to cancel because of it and I know AT&T tried to charge me my insurance deductible and said they mailed me a phone in a different part of the city (Queens) but that was probably because of an agent in that one place because I had a different issue with a different phone and went to a different place and this never happened again. The issue I had with the phone was I couldn't charge it and had a faulty micro sub port and got it replaced under warranty since I only had it for a month

    Didn't you have the turbo and didn't like it ? Why would you leave a phone to go back to a phone you didn't like already?

    I'm having problems with the media the s5 would read huge media folders with 5 or 6k pics in them no problem the note 4 stutters on 2k folders also when I take a screen shot of an existing picture in that folder the phone locks up half the time... it's very annoying as that is my main use of the phone....hope verizon updates quickly and fixes.

    They will mail you the replacement phone and once you get it, you return the old phone in the box that they give you with a prepaid label.

    Closingracer said that he wasn't getting any signal in the street in Brooklyn, which was why he wanted to move to a note 4 in the first place. I can only surmise that he prefers no lag and is now willing deal with no signal in the street in Brooklyn.

    I have had the Verizon Note 4 since day one and no lag...certain apps cause lag on mine mainly Facebook, but with all the access and permissions that it requires I expect that...I'm careful with the apps I install, if there are too many ads i remove it, if there are unnecessary permissions i remove it...apps that you used 2 or 3 phones ago may not play nice on the note 4 just yet...just some things to consider

    And I'm on Verizon it runs fine...I'm no expert but no device is perfect, no mobile carrier is without its flaws, some people say their note 4 lags others say their's doesn't, everyone had their phone setup differently so results and user experience will be different I doubt it's the phone, like I'm sure my fb issue is due to some setting I have different from others...not a deal breaker...not even close, I've disabled apps that could be the culprit, i don't allow gps location on most apps, i dont sync my pics to fb...could be any number of things that i changed that cause it...anyway seems like your experience was better at Tmo i would go back...ijs

    The Note 4 does have quite a bit of lag for a phone with the type of processor, and the amount of RAM. I find that TouchWiz takes up quite a bit of RAM. I find myself using 2 GB+ easy, without having a lot of apps open. When I experience severe lag, I notice that my RAM is almost used up. Closing apps within the task manager, as well as Google's multi app manager, bring it down to around 1.9 GB free.
    I installed an app called Fast Reboot, which will bring the RAM back down to around 1.5 GB.

    Lol? I hate t-mobile lol. I am just saying the t-mobile variant of the note 4 was fine with no lag. I now have the Verizon variant and find it very laggy

    Lol I love Verizon with the exception of the actual phone software on the Verizon variant. Going to do a refresh and possibly an exchange. Nexus 6 intrigues me but I think I prefer the note 4 screen and s pen

    Ok, I have read many people talk about this (not here of course as I'm new) and admit or deny it is a real problem out there.
    So here is my experience.

    My first Note 4 was a unlocked TM Version. It lagged so bad I had to take a valium to use it.
    I could literally type and finish typing two words, and then the keys would pop up and the letters appear.
    Same with th. S pen.
    There was a serious lag between a touch and response. It Was infuriating.
    I am not clueless about phones so I did everything I knew. Even rooted it and tinkered. Had actual developers help.
    Nothing.
    So, knowing it would probably be a waste, I turned to Samsung and did everything they asked, and even in Safe Mode lagged.

    As a last resort I took it to a Samsung store and the rep even got frustrated with it.
    The rep said it was a "lemon" and definitely a defect.
    Now with my 2nd there is no problem.
    If this is an issue then definitely swap it out. If you are gonna spend this kind of $ get a phone that is right.

    To be clear I am talking about true lagging issues not the normal here and there hiccups that all have ( FU Touchwiz) now and again.

    Same with me. These aren't related to what people hate touchwiz for. Samsung has stores? Or you mean the kiosk in bestbuy? Can it Be exchanged there?

    This phone isn't laggy. It can be made to perform that way same as if a bunch of people bought the same car or truck and then some got rid of extra weight and went faster and others hooked up a 40 foot boat trailer and went slower. It looks like many of the people in many of the threads (7 or 8 about lag) don't even know they are towing a boat. The Note 3 was the first device I had with twice the ram of anything else. It was fast. The Note 4 is faster. And to whoever said something about waiting for an update to fix lag... that won't happen. This isn't a real issue.

    Lol? So you have my phone in your hands? I love the note 4 I had on t-mobile and wasn't laggy but the Verizon one I have atm is very laggy to the point where I don't want to use it and use my iPad for anything when I have that near me. Seriously it's my experience and in my experience the Verizon note 4 is sluggish and very laggy at times... This isn't the touchwiz quirks but I think either an os issue with Verizon's or just a lemon
