    The new Nova launcher upgrade has eliminated most of the lag however brining up Google Search still lags for me.

    Here's some tips to help get rid of lag

    1. there is some kind of RAM leakage from lollipop you need to restart your phone every few days.

    2. Get an app to manage the background apps , I use 'shut app' which allows me to close all apps that aren't White listed.

    3. Get an app that allows you to clear the cache easily from apps, I use 'cc cleaner'

    Most of the lag is completely manageable if you look after your device, it's kind of like cleaning your room.

    On very rare occasions I get just a hiccup here and there. But nothing drastic. 98% of the time phone is smooth.

    My S6 just all of a sudden started lagging really bad. Like I had the issue where I would take a picture and would want to check it out and click the gallery app. Man that took like a good few seconds, and it was bothering me really bad. So I decided to do a master reset, and then deal with the bs that the stock messenger would not restore messages from a back up that was done 4 hours before the reset. So yet again this phone is lagging really bad. It is rooted with Nova, and for whatever reasons apps open up slow, they switch slow, and I am irritated that my 2yr old M7 worked faster then this. I have done the developer scale back options as well as Greenify and Debloater and the lag is just unbearable on this new 2015 phone. I have a possibly 70 apps, and I am just wondering what you all have done to circumvent the lag.
    70 apps omg...I have over 300 :o

    Five weeks later. Smooth and fast. Still no noticeable lag. Stock browser. No third party homescreen launcher yet. Even better performance after the AT&T OTA update.

    The only very slight lag is going from flip board brief page back to home screen, redraws in a second...that's it otherwise always lighting fast.

    My phone lags brutally. S6 128gb edge , gold, verizon. I had a MOto X 2014 that so far just blows the S6 out of the water with performance. I get slow registers to tap, extremely slow keyboard, slow loading in apps, almost everything. I have to restart the phone 6 times per day and it is speedy for about 20 minutes then lags again.

    I have about 30 or 40 apps on the phone. Same exact loadout I had on my moto X. I'm not sure WTH is going on. I will try a clean wipe and see if that helps .. here's hoping bc this is extremely annoying.

    I am using GS6 with stock touchWiz. No problem on accessing Android Central. In fact very smooth.

    I am using the Android Central app anyway.

    I have been using the S6 for two months now. It takes a few tweaks but my S6 is 100% smooth with zero lag. Try these steps.

    1. Wipe partition cache
    2. Reboot
    3. Turn off power saver
    4. Install Nova Prime Launcher
    5. Install CCleaner (wipes cache of all apps, use this once a week)
    6. Close apps in multitask tab when you don't need them.
    7. Uninstall troublesome apps that a badly coded
    8. Disable any apps that you are not using

    This should make your phone super smooth and save battery as well.
