    Every Note I have ever had (2,3,4) all started out amazing, then after time the battery life sucked and the phone lagged like crazy. Because of this, i skipped the Note 5.

    With the announcement of the S7 Edge, I got the Samsung itch again. Looking at this forum, it seems like the Note 5 still has the lame battery, but I am hoping the 3600 mah battery for the S7edge will combat that.

    How is the lag on the Note 5 after six months or so? is it lagging, or still pretty quick?

    No lag and my battery averages 17 hours, but in beast mode at work I only get 12 hours. I do top it off during lunch with my quick charge battery pack.

    no lag yet, and I have had it since early November. I've used Nova launcher on it for a while, and flip back to TW too. I was an avid iPhone user before, and I think the Note 5 is smooth as butter!

    No lag, I've had mine for 4 months. My battery has always seems fine, but I never really take notice- (which mean it must be fine) I sat in an emergency room for 14 hours, posting, browsing, reading, texting, and still had a little bit when I left.

    My Note 3 does lag now. It still has a decent processor and more ram than most phones so I find it really annoying. I hate to change phones because this model still allows simultaneous talk and data even in 3G zone. Is this planned obsolescence or what? Why do good phones in perfect shape begin to lag after about 2 years of use? I used to be a Moto guy but their phones do the same thing again after about 2 years. If I go to any new Samsung I lose ir blaster which I use every day and simultaneous voice and data since I live in a 3G zone.

    This may be a premature question, but have you tried wiping the system cache or do a full factory reset? Sometimes that helps.

    Zero lag since I have owned it, clearing the system cache once per week does wonders for these phones.

    the only lag I have noticed was with text. ended up just being that I was saving a ridiculous number of text. deleted a ton and I have not had any issues since. how do you clear the cache on these phones?

    No lag that I can perceive. Note 5 is super smooth and responsive, and I say this with Galaxy S3, and Note 2-4 as my own comparison points.

    Have had Note 5 since release, lag 0%. Runs like a beast whether solo or multi screen. Been solid with 50+ apps installed.

    As mentioned a occasional system cache wipe would only help keep it on top

    I've started to have some lag. Apps take a quick 3 count to open, keyboard about a click behind. It's definitely starting. Some of it may be AT&T and no updates since October, but it's definitely note as quick as my Nexus 5.
