    It looks like a beautiful phone but I’m leery of Samsung devices. Everyone I’ve ever owned has always eventually had scrolling issues in apps like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and others. They always jerk when I scroll.

    Hmm. I have Samsung S5 that's just as fast as my iphones.

    I have seen what you mean in previous devices. Haven't seen it really on my note 8. Every once in a while facebook will act up but the phone is smooth. Heck I've had my iPhone 7 plus lag more than this phone.

    Personally haven't had that issue on a samsung phone in a few years, and it was usually caused by too much bloat being installed by the user. Themes, launchers, 3rd party keyboards, etc.

    I worked at Verizon 2012 to 2016 and having sold and handled thousands of phones I have no reason to believe Samsung lags more than other brands. The old TouchWiz glitched out and had to be reset occasionally, but other phones had their issues as well.

    So the new TouchWiz is good? I have a Note 4, so I only know this TouchWiz.

    I had the Note 3, lagged after a while.. Upgraded to Note 5, loved this phone, very little, if no lag and I'm a heavy app user. Hands on Note 8 for a few days and I purposely leave most of my apps running, including the stream heavy Facebook. No lag. Loving this phone..

    I've used Samsung devices for 8 years and never had one lag on me. My sister did though and on examination of her phones it was chock full of random apps and themes, multiple keyboards, etc. Basically she forgot to uninstall anything that didn't have overt app icons and they're just there. Occasionslly updating or pulling ads in the background using up CPU cycles but to no use. I'm not saying that's you. I'm just saying that's just the case I saw.

    Samsung phones always had janky scrolling and animations in the past. Even my s7 edge is noticably laggy compared to my v20. However, my brother has the note 8 and the first thing i said after playing with it for a while was "holy crap it actually doesn't lag" lol. I think you'll be pleased with the performance of the note no matter what phone you're coming from.

    What Samsung phones have you had? I've had the Galaxy S, Galaxy S3, Note 3, Note 5 and now Note 8. Last one that lagged noticeably was the Note 3

    As a extremely heavy user I can say that lag is no where to be found on the note 8. It a super fast device and has never failed me yet.

    Same, no issues here. Saw some on my N7 and S7E, then got better when I went to the V20. But the N8 is better than all 3.

    You could go to a carrier store or BestBuy to play around with it and test it out. It is a super smooth phone. You could also buy it and give it a try and return it within 14 days if you don't like it. It may end up costing you a restocking fee, but at least then you'll know if you'd like it.

    Every Samsung that I’ve had (from the S4 to the S8) has lagged given some time. I wouldn’t rule out lag on the Note 8 until a couple of months have passed. My S8 (now sold) took maybe 2 months before it started.

    Expect the occasional lag and stutters. It's much more prevalent than on a Pixel/Nexus or iPhone.

    I have the S8 and it lags at times for simple things like opening messages or phone or camera. Waiting for my Note 8, but I do expect the occasional issues after the initial period.

    I don't think it will be that prevalent on the Note8.

    XDA did an article and concluded that unlike past Samsung phones, this one actually does offer very solid real-world performance, keeping up quite well with a OnePlus 5.

    The note 8 an note 4 are not the same trust me . I've had them all going back to the note 1 , note 8 is a better phone in every way

    I have been using Samsung for years and I can say over time galaxy phones do start to lag when that happens I factory reset it, as for the lag on note 8 never seen any lag and I have tried to make the phone lag, there's no such thing as the perfect phone there will also be pros and cons live with it people

    They only start to lag if people don't do a little regular maintenance, IT is totally possible to avoid, having said that it isn't made easy by Samsungs updates and you really do need to become familiar with all sub menus and settings etc...
    Note 8 seem to have a lot of that solved or bettered very significantly

    My last Samsung phone was the S3 and it left a bad taste in my mouth, looking back I should have returned it because of the horrible battery life and slow charging. Did not even look at Sammy till now. Preordered a Note 8 and wow, this phone is amazing so far. Loving it. Just my 2 cents.
