    No lag here, my Note 5 flies. Hangouts - yes lag, on every device - phone/tablet/PC.. Hangouts has been sucking for a while now, which does irritate me since I prefer to use Hangouts as my main messaging app.. Google always seems to be struggling with keeping their apps smooth & fast.. that's why I stopped using Chrome on Android months ago. Finally got sick of their inability to match the browsing speed of the stock browser

    Yeah its a shame because I hate the way that the stock samsung messaging app handles does group messages. I would like to use Hangouts or Google Messenger but both lag something serious.

    Yeah it updated the other day when several team members were in a hangout and it was lagging bad. It is a little better right now, but still a lag.

    I have a lag on the Note 5 (ATT) every so often. It will not recognize any taps on the screen. Sometimes this happens often. Other times I can go for a day without a problem.

    I don't own a Note 5, but played with the 3 on display at Best Buy yesterday. 2 of them were awful. Took several attempts pressing icons before they would open. On one of them the Gallery app wouldn't open no matter how many times I pressed it. I noticed some hiccups on those two as well. Not lag, but seemed like the phones were trying really hard moving between things. The third one had no problems whatsoever though. It was snappy and responsive. Didn't really hate TouchWiz as much as I used to either. The only thing though, if 2 of 3 had problems, I don't know that I'd feel confident buying one.

    Those are retail models with a bunch of junk that don't come on the phone, so you can't really judge by those.

    Tell the Samsung rep to replace the demo - my 22 month old Note 3 doesn't do that. (Of course the demos get completely mistreated, and I wouldn't be surprised to find more than one flavor of soda inside those phones, but they're not making themselves look good by saving $100 and not replacing a bad demo. The phone itself is good.)

    As I said, they get mistreated. I've dropped mine, in an Otterbox case, more than once - it even got flung against a wall once when I caught the wireless charger cord with my elbow - and I'm not planning on replacing it any time soon. (No replaceable battery, no SD card, no Note 5 for me.)

    BTW, to get back to the original topic, internet lag has nothing to do with the phone. I can write a web page that will lag on a supercomputer, and I can write one that will pop on a Gingerbread phone. And if your route to the server is through a really bad spot, you're going to get lag. (Back in the day, you did anything to avoid connecting to a server on the other side of AOL - going through there was like racing through Times Square at midnight on New Year's Eve - it wouldn't happen.) If anyone was following the stock ticker the other day when the Chinese market "corrected", you would have seen what lag really means - 500,000 traders (and I'm probably understating that wildly) all trying to get the same information at the same moment. That's filling your car's gas tank with a hair-thin pipe. If 90% of them didn't time out half a dozen times, it was just pure luck.

    No lag whatsoever on mine, either. And T-Mobile was notoriously bad at keeping lag at bay from the multitasking menu. This time around it's lightning fast. Amazingly fast. Even opening notes on SNote has been improved greatly. If anything I notice the lag when opening the camera via the Home Button shortcut, but it's barely even there.

    That makes sense on paper but I have several phones (Blackberry, iPhone 6, Nexus 6, Note 4, LG G4) and they all are relatively quick and responsive except for the Note 4. It has never been as trustworthy as my other phones no matter what.

    I was expecting these type of threads to start about the Note 5. There are way too many about the Note 4 and most all Samsung phones. I think Samsung is becoming well known for having phones that while full of what some may consider useful features, they all have a lag that too many people notice. Especially after the honeymoon phase with your new phone.

    I've had almost every Samsung phone since the S came out. Lag has never, ever been an issue for me. I got well past the honeymoon stage with all of them.

    I am seeing the infamous scrolling lag in Play Music, Play Newsstand and in some parts of the Play Store. Anybody seeing the same?

    I am going to check with my Nexus and HTC ONE M8 to see how they differ.

    Surprisingly rest of the system and apps including facebook, Twitter don't have this issue.

    Did some more test. In open WiFi networks I can see the scrolling lag. When I am in my home wifi, there is no lag.

    So I think it is the apps that are not handling slow Internet connections.

    That's good to know. I'm glad it's not every phone in production. I haven't had "every single Samsung device" but I have had most of them and I've always had the same lag and unresponsiveness. Maybe it's just my bad luck. I obviously like the devices but after a while I start comparing how much faster other devices are and I have to give up on Samsungs....... until the next one catches my eye. My Note 4 is not "unusable" or horrible except for the camera, which is super slow to focus and too many times it freezes up when I launch it. I can live with a little lag.

    I've experienced some lag on hangouts and Google messenger, but everything I've thrown at this phone has worked exceptionally well. Not the phone, it's the apps.

    That's most likely the Hangouts app. One of the worst Google apps out there, hands down.

    Well, sadly it's the only Messaging app that works with Android Wear.

    As a 'full' app, yes. But you can use most texting apps (even the stock one) to reply and view texts, and for IM you can use Whatsapp, FB Messenger, etc. They all work with Android Wear, you just can't summon the app on the watch, you have to reply to messages or have initiated the conversation from your phone.

    Yes! Lag while browsing, texting, and right after I hit the call button. This phone also has lag on the stylus. I placed my Note 4 and 5 together and drew on them. The Note 4 has been updated many times, so refining the software has to be a factor. I'm testing out this Note 5 for 2 weeks, but so far I like it. Just might make this my go to phone. I think software updates will fix the minor lag .

    I charged mine last night on the wireless charger. Woke up. Texting all day with the stock app is horrendous. It did download some things via the samsung apps yesterday but I cant recall what it even was. Cleared the cache and seems to be working a little better but still laggy. Earlier while texting it was Lagging a full second behind at least. a week with this phone and more issues than with my M8. It sure does take nice pictures though :/

    Which is why I use Google Hangouts because I can use it to interact with people through the app on my watch. That's what Samsung said at their event months ago, ONLY Google Hangouts work with communication through the watch. Regular SMS does not do it.

    I've seen some stuttering on my Note 5--nothing serious, though. And we'll never see an Android version that's silky smooth.

    Well, I don't know if it's nothing serious, but the difference between this Note 5 and my Oneplus One is staggering.

    Main issues I notice are when scrolling through lists in apps like Youtube (e.g. video subscriptions) and Facebook (newsfeed). On the OP1 it's always buttery smooth. On the Note 5 it's never smooth... it always stutters.

    Can people share there experiences with these apps? It's making me think there's an issue with this device. Is scrolling perfectly smooth on your device in these apps>
