    I'm coming from a Note 5, longtime Samsung user, and I for sure notice the lag. This N7 is much laggier than my N5
    This is exactly my sentiment. My note 5 was way smoother than this note 7. I can compare them side by side side i have the note 5 to my wife to replace her note 4. The note 5 barely ever hitched when scrolling or moving from app to app the note 7 does almost every time. I'm not happy about it.

    Take (or send) it back. Have you done a factory reset? What apps have you installed?
    What's there to hard reset??phone is brand new no reason to do that. Maybe after 6 months but not when it's a few days old.

    When many have used Smart Switch or restore and are experiencing issues, you need to reset and set it up as a new device.

    Sometimes, if you transfer data from an old phone, some quirks might carry over.

    It's typically recommended to start with a clean slate.

    Fingerprint - the one area where iP6S shines, round button works even if touch ID from side or "upsidedown"

    My S7 works much better than older S6 was but also not reason enough to stay with the iPhone,

    Lag on iPhone happens, 2GB RAM or something else - closing all apps and also needed to turn WiFi off / on, and where WiFi is supplemented by cellular data. My data use was much much higher on 6S+ doing same things and deeded a better data plan, so in the end cost more.

    Apple small memory, no SD card, but does uses faster NVME storage

    I have about 200 apps. But my MXPE runs smoother than this. Screw TouchWiz
    There's your problem.

    There's your problem.
    I don't think it's due to 200 apps, I've had 400+ on my phones since the HD2. There is some lag for sure when multitasking. I do use apps to contain all my apps. But even with little running apps this thing will become ugly fast. I still have my Note 5 sitting next to it as I upgraded and made the Note 7 exactly the same. The N5 did NOT have this much lag. I could get it to lag with lots of things going and little ram left, but it would recover nicely. The N7 at least on TMOUS stock will get an update and it should address it.

    Hard Reset should fix most of the lag but I'm lazy and will wait for the update as it will clear the dalvik etc. Overall though I do like the phone, and glad to have the SD card back. I use my phone heavily for work and on the road. I use a lot of PDF's and office doc's and very little gaming.

    I'm not new to phones, just search me up on XDA and you'll see I've been around as a DEV / MOD / WMobile / WPhone / Symbian etc.

    I can't root anymore due to work and samsung pay.... But I do use Package Disabler, SD Maid, 3C Toolbox Pro. I don't see much lag with Nova, only when I run several apps and switch back and forth. I even see it in the notifications dismiss (takes a sec or 2 to disappear).

    Anyhow, I've seen this stuff before and 99% sure it will be fixed and perform better lag wise than the N5 with an update or 2.

    So i just transferred in from a iPhone 6+. This is not my first time on android though. I had a HTC M8 before getting the 6+ so i know what to expect.

    I will say the Note 7 was very laggy for me just stock. I did some reboots but those didn't seem to help. i downloaded an app to disable some stock apps, AT&T, Facebook and a few others. Those SEEMED to help but the thing that really seemed to help was when i disabled Brief. I seemed to get much better responses after that. Also, i'm not sure but it seems every time i put on my S-View kickstand case from Samsung it slowed down my home screen again. i took it off and it was smooth again. Not sure but i'm returning the case anyway. Its not to my liking.

    Anyway, i just wanted to toss up a few things that seemed to help me. Here are list of things i do and don't like.

    1. S Pen is great. Jotting notes down is really cool. Love it.
    2. The Note 7 itself feels wonderful to hold.
    3. Samsung apps have improved over the S5 i tried after my HTC. I'm trying to use only stock items for now.
    4. Fingerprint scanner is way faster then my 6+. I don't have a 6s+ to compare but the Note 7 is a huge jump up.
    5. I don't like that the stock lock screen doesn't allow music widgets or something to control my podcasts with. Annoying really.
    6. I wish badges worked on every app I needed.
    7. If there was one thing iOS was good for, it was plenty of Task Management apps. I'm still looking for one. Todoist is close.
    8. Chrome seems to load pages really slow but i was running 1Blocker on iOS with a few whitelisted sites. my N7 seems to load pretty slow. Any tips would help here.
    I downloaded Samsung Music and put my podcasts in there. Works pretty well.
    Samsung's browser is way faster than Chrome. Reminds me of mobile Safari aesthetically, which I prefer. I also use Crystal ad blocker on Samsung's browser. That's the same one I used on iOS.

    I too had the Note 5 previously and too realized my Note 7 was much laggier. When I first set it up, I selected to restore from Google. I factory reset it, this time setting it up as a new device and voila, the lag is gone. I actually think its smoother and faster now than my Note 5. I also turned animation off.

    If I get a Note 7, I will do a clean setup and not from any past restore. Is there a website on Google Play or elsewhere to make sure disables auto restore on new phone? Don't want to sign in to your google account at setup and all of a sudden starts downloading/installing apps.

    I tried it a couple of times last time I owned an Android and always seemed to have bad performance and the way it restored seemed wonky and end up factory resetting and setting up as new.

    Make me leary to try it when I went to iOS but I had some issue with phone and had to reset and tried the iclouds backup and have to say it works very well... as well as plugging in and doing an itunes restore. google needs to work on that.

    It restores different now. During first setup of the phone, you get a choice between setting up as a new device, or restore from your previous device. It's works out sometimes when restoring from a previous phones, but sometimes not. If you've been away from Android for a while, it may be better setting up as a new device.

    I haven't been this disappointed in a new phone since I bought the Nokia N97 years ago. I'm shipping the N7 back Monday morning.

    I did 2 different factory data resets and setup the phone as new. I didn't use smart switch either time to set it up. Both times resulted in the same slow laggy buggy performance as before. The phone was kinda fast at first after the fdr, but eventually after almost a day it got really slow. I can't justify spending 900 dollars on something and having to spend several attempts installing things and have it perform worse than my old note 4.

    I use Pocket Casts. I need to try out Samsung browser with Crystal blocker. Some sites are just impossible to look at (not those sites BTW). I did try out Firefox and it was much better with an ad blocker installed.

    FYI. I did the factory reboot and the first thing i'm going to do is disable the apps i don't need then download the my most used ones and see how my results are. I'll report back....if the thread is still open

    I agree with your decision. There is a forum for Note 4 users where you will probably feel more at home and be able to use your device with them with more satisfaction. I hope it goes well for you as you return to the phone and forum that works best for you.
    That Note 4 forum is one of my faves!

    Wow this phone super lags. Only a restart helps. I literally hit home button and took a full 3 seconds to react.

    See if they'll exchange the phone. It's too expensive and new to be having any issues.
    I'm new to Android phones (long time Apple guy). My new Galaxy Note 7s is just 2 days out. With an Apple phone, if I had a problem, I would take it to an Apple store and they would either fix it or replace it. So, if I have a problem with my new phone, do I head for the ATT store where I bought it??

    This was the first phone I had to FDR in a long time to fix an issue. I will say its better after the FDR, I will make a final decision in a few days.
    It's pretty safe to say that if you have good performance immediately after a Factory Reset, then it's an app (or apps) and not the phone. I know you have 200 apps ( maybe bears some consideration ), but systematically installing and testing the phone after each app or group of apps might help.

    I wouldn't be so quick to condemn the phone when it's clearly a software problem. (You might consider that putting the same piece of software on a different hardware type or software version and having the performance tank indicates poor software design and inadequate testing.)
