    Hello everyone.i recently bought Note5 as my second phone and im encountering huge lags while gaming.i always keep my ram free as possible dont even open more than 4*apps*atonce.and*games have really low graphics compared to my other phone 6S Plus.

    Asphalt 8:lags but playable*
    Modern combat 4-5:Huge lag unplayable
    Gta san andreas:hug lag even on lowest settings unplayable
    Dead trigger 1-2:no lag
    Sky force:no lag
    Gangster Vegas:small lag but really bad graphics(on very high)
    Dead effect 2:medium lag
    Mortal kombat x:no lag
    Marvel contest of champions:no lag
    Brothers in arms 2:medium to high lag almost unplayable

    I fell like that my gpu is not working the way it should.

    Is there a fix to this problem???if there isn't ill just buy a Z5.

    Last night i read on XDA that samsung has this thing called fovs(i think)that limits the gpu functionality in order to save battery and keep the phone from over heating.

    My antutu is about 65000.

    If any info about my phone is needed just say and ill answer right away.

    Go into your power or screen or energy saver settings and see if there are any options to set it for "Performance" instead of balanced. Try rebooting and only opening that one game and see if that's an issue.

    Also, try a little less intense graphics settings and see if that's the issue. I doubt you'll notice the difference between 2k resolution and 1080P, and that should make a difference!

    Welcome to Android Central! That's good advice. Also, if you have some "RAM booster" installed, try uninstalling it. Those apps can actually cause performance issues, for example if they keep trying to close apps that are automatically opening in RAM. Android wants to keep RAM relatively full, so if you have a RAM booster that's fighting it, it might get into a cycle of app closing-opening-closing-opening, which ultimately uses CPU and battery.

    Download an app called game tuner. It will let adjust performance levels for games. It works great. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gametuner.thin

    Even a small game like asphalt nitro has lag compared to 6S Plus.

    Just to make sure it's a genuine Note5 and not a clone/knockoff, install and run CPU-Z to make sure it has the correct processor hardware listed (unless AnTuTu does this as well).

    Are you able to compare the performance on your Note5 with someone else's Note5? If the problem is exclusive to your unit, contact your wireless store or Samsung for a replacement.

    What about going into DFU mode or whatever it's called, and clear the cache? Not sure if that would help.

    Where did you get this phone that it doesn't have a warranty? I'm wondering if someone didn't sell you a Note 5 knock off.

    This is a screen recording from my note 5 so it can be a tiny bit choppy but does this look laggy? It felt smooth in game, but i will try it on ios also.

    Man i hope the factory reset fixes it. If not and u have to PAY for warranty i wouldnt pay a damn thing. I would hit up samsung and tell them the problem see if theyll send u a refurb free with fixed gpu
