    Basically, what this tells me is that the iPhone leaves EVERYTHING running in the background. While the Note 7 shuts apps down UNLESS you decide to multitask. So, iPhone will munch down battery uselessly, while the Note 7 attempts to use its power resources more efficiently. Personally, I never race through apps like the video. So I never seem to have to worry about this "issue".
    I'm not sure the battery usage projection is accurate. That A10 Fusion sure looks like a beast.

    Here's another comparison between the iP7 and the N7. I don't know which variant the N7 is (SD or Exynos).

    If getting MM 6.0.1 (released December 2015) out to a Note4 in September 2016 is their idea of stepping up their game, then I must have an entirely different idea of what it means to step up their game.

    And the funny thing about OEMs releasing security updates is that apparently, unlocked devices aren't getting the updates.
    You're right about the Note 4, I was referring to their progress on their more recent flagships though. Every positive step has a date that it can't retroactively impact and so most changes are made with a "from now on" initiative.

    People should check their replacements and see if it still comes with a snapdragon processor...maybe some will luck up with a exynos. ...

    Might be placebo but my replacement n7 is much snappier with no lag. Hope it lasts.

    Don't make any difference.
    They already showed.
    With more pixels on the Note 7.
    And the larger screen
    YOu can't compare the 2 phones with each other.

    Went in my New note 7 and turned animations down to 1.5.
    Put a lot of apps I don't use to sleep.
    And turned the notifications to a lot of apps off.

    and optimizing my phone in the maintenance app.
    My new note 7 is running pretty good.

    You should set it to .5x or Animation off. 1x is default.

    I put all 3 to .5x. "Animation off" is one settings in "Animation duration scale"

    What does animations do for the phones operation.
    What does it change when you turn them off?

    Animations look nice when navigating your phone, but they can cause delays and even slow down devices. Disabling them can improve your Android device's performance.

    My replacement definitely seems to be less laggy. Not sure if its because I started from scratch this time or what

    I also encountered this for my first unit, very frustrating. Even after factory setup does not solve it completely.

    Do you know what triggered it? I did not enable heptic feedback.
    I wish I knew what triggered it. Well I've handed it back for replacement due to the battery problem. They say I should get it tomorrow fingers crossed. Had to hand it back really after Samsung sent an update limiting my battery to 60% charge capacity.

    I'll call it - this is nonsense.
    So is this thread.

    If you've got lag, there are a number of ways to resolve it.
    If you can't resolve it, move on to another phone.

    The drama here on behalf of the OP is so unfreakinbelievable.
    How would you resolve the lag? If you tell me, I can tell you I tried it then you can get another phone.

    I just wanted to add a very interesting data point here. I didn't do any official testing but I am fairly confident in the results. My wife and I both got note 7's and her's always lagged a little more than mine. You can see it in my previous posts. I complained about this. Both of ours lagged from the beginning and then mine straightened up and became decent while hers didn't.

    Fast forward to Monday and she received her replacement (I haven't yet). I was setting everything up on it for her and it is lightning quick! No lag whatsoever. Even now it works SO SMOOTH that I'm stunned. Blows away the smoothness of even mine when I had it. I'll give it a few more days and see how it goes.

    However the lesson of the story should be clear here.... The people that are super adamant about either acknowledging or not acknowledging the possible problem are being ignorant. Just because your works GREAT/TERRIBLE doesn't mean that all work that way.

    To me, that shows that there IS a problem. They should all work smoothly.

    I've handed my Laggy Note 7 in this morning due to Samsung updating my phone with the battery charge to 60% limit "feature". Now I'm using my old Note 3 and it's not quite as Laggy as my Note 7. Loving the nostalgia.

    So who else with a replacement notices a difference?

    There is a big difference especially if you have the tmobile version...nearly lag free, nougat like app notifications, some interesting options also pop up above icons if you hold one down on any of your home screens....you can uninstall, put to sleep a app, see app info, or add to secure folder which wasn't on my old device...the animations are much smoother and look really nice...i am not even scaling down my animations because feel I no longer have to and if you want ya device to speed up even more you have the option to switch to 1080p although it's not necessary.

    Much less lag/stuttering for me than my original Note7. No change in terms of setup or apps - fresh install both times, but still had lag on the first Note. Haven't adjusted animation settings down from 1.0 yet on new one.
