    So why does android start to lag afterwards?? I too have noticed my S6 not opening apps as fast as before. the lag was very minor though and didn't have much effect on my usage
    I think thats has more to do with Samsung phones and Touchwiz than Android itself because I've heard people with Nexus devices say their phones still run smooth after having it for a while. I think most will agree Galaxy phones are not as well optimized as iphones hence the slowdown over time.

    My Note 5 does have a little lag at times, my note 4 did not. Which is quite interesting, because Touchwiz is lighter on the N5. N5 is also faster and smoother than the N4, but I see lags on the N5. My Nexus 5 and 6 never lagged at all and neither did my HTC M7 or M8. They were all super smooth and fast. So as result, I find that it is Samsung's Touchwiz that causes the problem. Even though the N5 it is much lighter.

    I'm in the same boat as you. Did using Google keyboard resolve the issue?

    Truest statement on the internet. So typical of Samdung phones to have to deal with changing everything stock just to make it work. I dumped my Note 4 because of this, and in waiting for the iPhone 6s to drop, my carrier let me have a note 5 and while the phone and hardware are gorgeous, the samdung software is still the same old BS. I should not HAVE to change stock apps to get proper functionality. The stock message app was so laggy, I would type a few words, then they'd appear in the text box as much as 10 seconds later....all at once .Then hit "send" and waiting 5 or so seconds to complete the action. Installed Google messenger and it's instant. Which means it's a samdung software issue. (also happened in safe mode)

    Is it still smooth, or did you run into any additional problems?

    This by far the smoothest operating phone I've ever owned. I literally had so many things running at once I lost track. Plus firefox, the native internet app, and text secure. Still zero lag or issues of any kind.
    ^^ this. Zero issues.

    No lag at all on the Note 5. Nothing faster on the market today.

    I experienced the same lag in my keypad when typing messages. I just reset the keyboard settings then it goes back to normal.

    Is it just me or does the note 5 have some lag in text messaging and while browsing the internet? It seems like it loads Web pages slow and sometimes while typing the typing lags behind. . I thought maybe it was the theme I was running but that wasn't it. Anyone else having these issues? This phone is awesome other then that. Just want this fixed. For the price is should have zero lag.

    Lag? Are you serious this phone is a beast. If you are lagging it's your connection. No way in he'll it's the phone.

    Switch to the Google keyboard in the mean time. After doing that I don't seem to have lag.

    Totally agree. I don't use chrome and I use textra for sms. It just socks that you pay this much for a phone that you have to tweak so much to the point that the features you bought it for irritate you more then they are useful. I'm gonna give it a few more days and see if it works itself out . If not I will either return or exchange.

    And what do expect samsung with do with a used phone? Sell it again? Would someone buy a only few days used phone?

    I haven't noticed any lag, but then again I have the international version so mine doesn't come with all the carrier bloat ware that slows it down.
    Same old story !!!!

    I LOVE Google Keyboard but at the same time I determined that is exactly what is causing the lag on my Note 5. It is a very consistent pattern. I install Google Keyboard and I have lag, I uninstall it and have zero lag.... Sucks because I think it's the best keyboard by FAR. I also have the N920i International version on AT&T

    I'm partial to the Samsung keyboard. I actually think it is really good. I love the top number row.

    My Note 5 lags now and again while typing in any field text, internet, whatever. It also freezes temporarily on any screen (Lock screen, going in or out of apps, while in app, on home page, menu screens, etc.

    I'm hoping that Samsung didn't produce a lot of defective phones, because I seem to have one. I'm in the process of getting a refund of exchange possibly. I'm thinking5 trying another note 5 again, but...

    I have a factory unlocked one on MetroPCS. My typing gets stuck, the phone freezes up a bit hear and there. That can't be my connection as far as I can understand. My LG G Stylo ($150) was more impressive performance wise in the first month than this note has been.

    I've seen a few reports of this, but it hasn't been my experience. One of the snappiest phones I have ever used.

    I've had a couple of typing lags when I'm running a boat load of apps but it doesn't last long. Other then that the phone is snappy and buttery smooth. Like any electronic device some people get a different experience. I've heard many iPhone users complain of app crashes, phone restarts and lag, yet the software is often advertised as being flawless. It just depends on the individual device and if it's faulty or if something is hindering the full potential of the experience and what the phone is capable of.
