    My original 7 lagged pretty bad. Even when doing a clean install of apps. This new replacement (Sprint) is very snappy even after restoring of apps/data. Its a relief though, I was so used to my S6Edge+ that was crazy fast too.

    This is disconcerting to me but noo real surprise that this thread exists. i was contemplating the upgrade fro my note 5 but when I saw that US Variants werent going to get the Dual QWuad core 1.6Ghz/2.4Ghz 8890 snapdragon configuration but would rather be ofeered a slower quad core model I was heartbroken. The Note 5 had the Octa-core (rather Dual-quad Core) configuration and I haven't experience lag at all in just under a yearunles employing a particularly taxing themer. Before I Buy I always check a different well known forum that gave me the low down on what to expect. If you're intersted check out the link below. The drop from a 16mp camera to a 12 mp camera wasn't a deal breaker but I was in the end like WHY? they invested in redisigning the camera app but downgraded the hardware it would use. then there are SpO2 detector and th IR solar level detctor weren't enough...not useless, but almost not used and yet expenmsivce hardware feature to add on, as if this weren't enough they come back withan iris scanner. Why? Only the top of the top security entrance s in the world use retianl ampping biometrics as a means of identification. Why on a smart phone. an approval on a smartphon will not lend the same credibility as the one the dept of Defense spent a million or so developing.
    What I guess I am saying is that they need to trime the whistles and focus on the bells.
    The OP had it right that the first few days are going to be phenomenal, and another subsequent poster sau=id that without these launches and hype the phones would not sell.

    I reccomend reading a little of the following article. It explains how large consumer a=rep bodies review the phones for a week and give them stellar reviews but when asked a couple weeks late their enthusiasm is quite lackluster.
    HERE

    I don't know but I expec that the INT'l users experience a lot less of these problems with lag. Also did you know that the Note 4 released in america for 80% or carrier markets, but certain markets got a dumbed down dual core slower than a Note 3.
    I wnat to upgrade for certain reassons, better s-pen, water resistance, USB-C, and edge features, but only if T-Mo will finance me an international version of the phone. Otherwise I will wait with my note 5 for the Note 8.

    I always do a clean install of all my apps and all my settings. I never transfer the setup from one phone to another.
    I use Package Disabler Pro, but can get a similar result just uninstalling/disabling bloatware.
    Always turn animations off - my preference.

    Original Note 7: perfect, no lag. Very snappy!
    Replacement Note 7: exactly the same: perfect, no lag. Very snappy!!

    There are so many user-specific variables that can introduce lag, it's really difficult to resolve remotely.
    Plus, it's altogether possible that some devices get into the wild that exhibit lag for whatever reason.

    As I said earlier, do your best to resolve given the info in this thread. If the lag is still there, replace, or move on.

    Got mine again yesterday. Installed everything after receiving the update and doing a hard reset. We'll see how it goes

    Already noticed some minor stutters, and slight delay when clicking an app to open it, just like the previous one, tho not as bad. I think it's just Samsung, it will never be completely smooth. I hope it's better than the last one/pre update, because that was unbearable. My games still load faster on the Tab S2 Snap Dragon 652, so maybe, few more updates and things will get better.

    I can tell you, even with a fresh install and transitions turned to .5, the $400 Honor 8 is still 100% noticeably faster in every aspect. Installing apps, loading apps, opening/scrolling web pages, and mainly switching between power intensive apps...

    I also know, that some people are just not susceptible to the slowness/lag. 2 co workers have the Note and when I asked them if their's lags they said no, and when I looked at their phones, they were sluggish, and when they played with the Honor 8 a week later after I returned my note, both noticed right away how much snappier it was. Too bad it has 5.2" screen. I really need a 5.5"+ phone. It's amazing what a difference that little amount actually makes in screen real-estate.

    I think at this point, I have to decide, if I really like the Note that much, I have to just deal with an overall slower phone / stuttering or buy something else once and for all like the Moto Z, which everyone seems to say is as smooth as a phone can get, and it has the option for wireless charging and Moto Display stuff, to trade off waterproof/always on display.

    Just to make some things clear.

    Lag is defined as a noticeable delay between an action or command that is being sent and the expected response that said action should reproduce.

    For instance, tapping an app icon but it not doing anything for about a second or two before the app-open animation plays is defined as lag. However, if you tap the app icon but the animation takes a while, that's not actually "lag" in that definition. It just means that the animation is just too long. Likewise, if the phone responds to the action of tapping the app icon with the animation quickly but the app itself takes a while to load, it's usually because the phone is loading the app from storage to memory and the processor is processing data in order to make the app work. That means if your phone has a weaker processor and a slower memory controller like eMMC that's below 5.0 or even 5.1, you will notice a delay in how long it takes for an app to load. Most flagship Androids of 2016 currently use the much-faster UFS 2.0 storage controller, though it's also worth noting that the iPhone uses an even-faster NVMe-based controller.

    That just makes the animations faster.

    It does speed up the device by making sure that the animations don't take longer than needed, but doesn't resolve the actual "lag".

    I also prefer to keep it standard before making it faster just makes it feel that the phone is rushing.

    On my original Note7, I would type and the keyboard would miss some key presses, resulting in extremely long times to type anything. I don't see that issue so far with the new one. I think the display has better sensitivity than the original. Probably part of the update.

    People really don't know the difference between lag and longer animations....my tmobile note 7 device so far has been lag free with only slight stutters during app installations which is typical on any Android device...both of my iPad pro's larger and smaller can exhibit stuttering at times and the new animations with ios 10 lag a bit now too....

    Same story on mine.

    My iPad (Pro 12.9) is fast, but does have its chugging moments.

    Wtf Samsung. It was nice for the first few days but now the lag is unbelievable.

    Once again, great hardware. Crappy software. Even typing this message was a PITA
    Once I deactivated the secure folder the phone became much better

    Have you gone into your setting, and device maintenance.
    And optimized your battery, ram and storage,
    i do this a couple times a week.
    and I cut my phone off and back on about 4 times a week also.

    I experienced lag with my first Note 7 (pre-recall)'s keyboard and was so annoyed that i wanted to sell the exchanged one once i got it but upon getting the new one there's no lag at all with my new Note 7. Try to update the software, reset, or have it exchanged.

    That's what I feel so too. Even some review videos demonstrating lags on Note 7 isn't really lag to me.

    My Nexus 9 is the mother of all lags, so I certainly know what lag is. I dun really feel there is any lag on my G4 and Note 7, but Note 7 is noticeably faster in loading than G4.

    My note 7 is slightly laggy at times. I know its lag considering when I restart my device the problem is fixed. I especially notice the lag in using the Facebook app or going through my list of applications.

    Its a hit and miss. Sometimes the device is perfect and other times its just slightly laggy but nothing frustrating. The device is definitely a great device nonetheless.

    I live out in the country. Used to use a iPhone, was running from one end of the house to the other to use the phone.
    Same thing outside.
    Got a Samsung and a lot of trying to find a signal left.
    So I can handle it taking a little while to process the information.
    Thing the Samsung gets a better signal to talk.
