    All,

    I been noticing a lag when using Swiftkey. Anyone notice this? Not sure if the default Samsung keyboard is better, but I always default to Swiftkey, and definitley notice a lag/stutter sometimes when using it.

    Thoughts?

    I've noticed it, among other concerns with Swift key. The stock keyboard is so much appealing to me now. Especially after applying a theme.

    Damn...maybe I should consider using the stock keyboard then.

    I have noticed it a bit, but I had more lag on the stock keyboard, so not sure what the next move is for me.

    Hmmmm... I've been using it since Friday and have not noticed any lag at all. I actually like the Samsung keyboard as well. I am just using SwiftKey out of habit more than anything right now. It has always been the one that works best for me.

    No lag for me as well. Working perfectly fine and very fluid. Always used Swiftkey and still do due to just habit.

    Hmmm.maybe I'll remove and reinstall it and see if that fixes the Swiftkey lags I'm getting.

    How are you using a theme with the keyboard?

    I don't think I am noticing lag with it. Where do you see it? So far it has been working for me.

    I thought it was just my psychosis. Ive had this issue since day 1. Phone slowed to a crawl when typing anything at all, and seemed to almost bog down the whole phone in general. Just downloaded chrooma keyboard and its night and day. I hope Samsung fixes this ASAP!

    What makes you think it's a problem with Samsung - especially since you downloaded another keyboard and it's working fine?

    I stopped using Swiftkey a long time ago because it lagged on my devices. I use stock.

    Not sure if its a Samsung issue or the app ie Swiftkey that needs to update their app since people are saying Chrooma keyboard is working fine.

    I notice when I clean up the ram using the device maintenance its frees up ram and starts to work smoother. Unacceptable that a phone with 4GB of ram and basic apps open that I would only have 688mb free and need to constantly close apps just to TYPE!!!!!

    I've had none, but I've had this problem in the past with SwiftKey. Try ubjnstslling it, reinstalling, and clearing your cache. Hopefully you'll get lucky and that will fix it.

    I definitely have lag on Swiftkey. It's been my default keyboard for quite some years and this isn't the first time I've gotten lag. I plan to delete and reinstall to see if that clears it (it has on other devices in the past) and if it doesn't plan B is to try their beta. Plan C is to try another KB 'till I know I can get Swiftkey back.

    ETA: Trying the Swiftkey beta now and there's still plenty of lag. Of the 2 others I know that have this phone (also on Verizon), one has the same lag with Swiftkey while the other doesn't. The funny thing is that the guy with a ton of open apps doesn't have the lag while the girl who has nothing running is getting all the lag.

    All,

    If you guys search the fourms here and XDA there has been plenty of people with complaints of lag. Its definitely not Swiftkey or so I thought. From lurking the forums, I did everything including changing the animation to .5. What I found that is currenlty working for me is changing the scale from small to large. Ever since I changed that setting, the lag has been way better. I do get occasional Swiftkey lag, but the general overall lag throughout the system is better after chaning the scale.
