    I'm not sure if I'm the only one with this problem but has anyone experienced any lagging with SwiftKey? I am using the Nova launcher and the UI slows to a crawl when I flip screens with Swift Key being the default keyboard. If I switch to the Samsung keyboard or Swype, the lag goes away. Even when using the keyboard itself, there is an occasional stutter (doesn't happen all the time). I of course have the latest version of Swift Key and have this problem on both TouchWiz and Nova launchers, stock and custom ROMS. I also don't see this problem on my HTC One.

    Thanks!

    I get the same type of studder when I'm using something that requires the keyboard... there is a split second hesitation when the keyboard comes up. Kinda annoying.

    None, and I'm using Swiftkey with Nova. It's likely another app (or setting) at fault.

    Please try to disable smart rotation and see if issues still there?

    I keep hearing about this Kii keyboard! I just may have to try it out. I have Swiftkey on my HTC One and no lag. How do you like Kii's key lay out?

    Swiftkey with Nova...and I don't notice any lag at all...maybe there's a 3rd factor involved somewhere?

    I'm not sure what "Smart Rotation" is either...however I will add that keep auto-rotate and smart-scroll both turned off. As mentioned above, I do NOT have noticeable lag on my S4 with Swiftkey and Nova launcher.

    I m using the s4 LTE since 20 days and its driving me crazy, LAG LAG LAG. I have done all possible ways to fix this issue but still not working, i have swtiched off all Apps and i am using my S4 only for calls and smss and thats heart breaking to see such a beautiful device and can't use it.

    Any solution? the phone is not responding and very slow in all apps even when i send sms its just taking ages.

    Whats the solution? should i go back to Blackberry Q10?

    Sound like you have an issue. I would reset the phone. I don't have any of your issues.

    I think SwiftKey uses a lot of resources... I noticed my phone started being smoother ever since I started using the Google Keyboard.

    I have an s3 and definitely notice a SwiftKey lag if either Smart Rotation and/or Auto Rotation are enabled. The keyboard is very laggy, especially in landscape mode.

    It's such a shame because the prediction algorithms are superb with SwiftKey, rather than on the stock Google Keyboard (which is arguably smoother and lag free) and especially compared to the stock Samsung keyboard (the worst of the three).
