    Oh I'm on the s7 edge solely because of the screen and camera. I went from the note 4 to the v10 and I still find LG's screen tech unbearable next to Samsung's. Brightness and viewing angles were horrible on that thing lol. The camera on the v10 rocked, but the focus speed on the s7e makes it an awesome point and shoot phone camera without ever having to touch the settings.

    Even on the v10 though, I was surprised how snappy LG's ui was on a pretty dated processor. I'm now looking forward to see what the v20 is gonna bring (I'm one of those annoying replaceable battery people.) If it's disappointing, I'll either jump to the note 7 and buy a mophie case or hold onto the edge until next year.

    From what I can tell the snapdragon variant just isn't very optimised.

    He may just have a bad one or an app messing with his battery life. Look at the comments on the review and several are not having the issues he is. Maybe I am old and slow but I couldn't see any lag at all while he was flipping around the phone. Best thing to do is see how yours works when you get it after several days and decide then if it is worth you keeping yours or not. I don't think the battery life will be the greatest but if it gets me through the day I will be fine. But if he is seeing lag on that video I just don't see it.

    1st you should do is uninstall some of those apps I find it hard to believe you use 200 apps. I have owned multiple Android phones LG G3, Note 5 S3 &.4 and now N7 never had a problem with lag. I always set my phone up from scratch like I am new to Android no smart switch and it works for me. I think it's unfair to blame Samsung for user issues they can't be held responsible for the way people use there device's.

    Or maybe you have never tried a light ROM or Apple?

    They make this $900 phone look like a huge rip-off.

    Maybe you have had great luck but you list ALL Samsung devices. How can you have an objective opinion?

    Ever tried a Nexus device or iPhone for at least 1-2 weeks, as a daily driver?
    Samsung was the only relevant OEM in this discussion, but if you want me to elaborate on my list, so be it.

    Every iPhone except the SE and 5C. Every Nexus except the original. HTC EVO, EVO 3D, Thunderbolt, M7, M8, 10. LG G2 and G3. Haven't touched the Sony devices. Won't list Blackberry because they haven't been relevant for years.

    Pretending there's some massive difference in performance between the 6P/6S/10 and Note 7 is really amusing and just speaks to the semi-annual "OMG the new Samsung lags/TouchWiz sucks!" narrative people seem hell bent on continuing.

    Mine's going back and I'm sticking with the Moto Z Force. It's mind-boggling to me how much different the experiences are between two phones using the same Snapdragon processor. (Both on Verizon, btw.) Too bad too, because the Note 7 might be the best-looking phone ever.

    Think it may be the area you are in and how strong of a signal you are getting.

    As you know the better phone signal the faster the phone will operate.
    Try it with a good signal and while you are on Wi Fi with a good signal.

    I'm on At&T and if I have a strong signal my phone works great.

    Any idea why when connected to Bluetooth the audio skips if I'm on the phone?

    Have you gone into the developer options and turned all animation off? That is the first thing I do with every new phone.

    If it was half the price i would agree, but $1349 where i come from, i would expect it to be just as fast/smooth as its competitor for similar dollars, it is 2016 Samsung.
    But it's not like it's slow. It's plenty fast. I'm not going to nitpick over less than a second. All devices have their advantages and disadvantages. I mean look at the iPhone. It's expensive, it can't do half of the things most android phones can but people still find value in it.

    Have used N2, N3 and now N4 ( decided to skip the N5 and will wait a bit before getting a N7 ) and ok I have experienced the odd bit og lag but nowhere near to the extent some people are claiming, I wonder if the US carriers are a lot worse than the European ones for messing with the phones as my phones have all been unlocked versions.
    To avoid lag I do think it is a good idea to restart the phone on a regular basis ( maybe twice a week ) like you would with your computer ( it could be just in my head of course but I do it anyway )

    I think you should be able to have it all. The nice Samsung features, as well as a smooth, fast Android experience. My Note 5 was smoother than the Note 7 and, one of my favorite phones until the Nexus 6P came out. My S7 Edge runs smooth also.
    Well you clearly can't have it all. The nexus phones are clean, fast and get fast updates but they lack most of the features of other phones like galaxies. All phones have these weak points. The idea is to find a phone with the least compromises.

    This thread is relatively long, so I did not read every post, I searched and didn't find this, so here goes.
    When it was reported that the Note 5 wasn't going to have an SD card, I read several articles that the reason manufacturers were ditching it was due to performance issues.
    I'm wondering if the difference between those experiencing lag and those who aren't is the usage of the SD card

    There is absolutely no reason why the Note 7 would lag and the Note 5 does not.
    Just something to think about.

    Good point. I was watching a reviewer on youtube comparing cameras between motoz and note 7 and the note 7 was lagging like crazy. Everyone pretty much tortured him, so he made another video and figured out it was his sd card that was causing the problem. Note 7 cam glitching, lagging, etc. Check your sd cards folks.

    The SD is only accessed when it's needed, not all the time. If adoptable storage was enabled, that argument would hold weight. As it is now, I don't see any logic to it slowing the entire phone 24x7.

    And for those with AC app login issues. This is 100% fixed. Join the beta track in Google play and update your app.

    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
    Are you experiencing lag or slow animations? A lot of people mix the two up. I don't know you so I don't want to assume anything. Just a general question. I hated the animations on the phone and turned them down. I have enjoyed the phone much more since doing that.

    Good point about the sd card. I had a similar problem once(not on my note 7)... A corrupt file on the sd card was to blame

    How do you know when it is needed for other users?
    Can't some apps, even partially, be moved to the SD card?
    Perhaps many users have done that or are accessing pictures that they have stored there, or access notification tones, etc.

    Still not seeing the lag people are reporting. I do with my Lenovo Pro 3, since has 2G ram, of which 1/3 of that is allocated to the projector module. That tablet is a laggy mess, but I use it for multimedia and games (great for those things)- not as a tasking tablet. Have an iPad Pro for that.

    That's all fine and dandy, but I use an SD card (same one) in my Moto Z Force and no lag issues whatsoever.

    People who are changing their animation scale, I find that to do more harm and make the transitios have a jarring effect. Once I changed mine back to 1x, if felt ALOT smoother IMO.

    Every phone has some lag. The Note 7 does slightly lag more frequently than my htc 10 on normal situations.

    However I use my phone as navigation while fast charging in direct sunlight on my dash. In this scenario, the htc 10 battery got to 130°F after about 10 minutes and very very heavily throttled performance. The Note 7 in similar situation got to 105°F yesterday and lagged very little after this usage.
