    I've been with the Galaxy S series since the. Beginning. But the lag... even with the S7edge it's still there.

    ***lag occurs when:

    An app is updating in the background and I'm using my phone with another app

    When a text msg comes in.... The whole phone freezes

    In the messages app the keyboard starts to lag and freeze

    There are certain times the keyboard starts to lag for no reason

    The phone also stutters and lags with no apps in the background

    I absolutely love the hardware, the camera, display, battery, build quality, Samsung pay are the only things holding Me from switching to iPhone.. but the lag and the horrible software experience Samsung keeps outputting on their devices is becoming tiring and annoying. Get your sh#*t together Samsung because you are about to loose a loyal user

    Not just Samsung, I always faced terrible lags and bugs on my Xperias, Motos G and X, HTC, LG, Nexus, etc. Had more than 20 Android phones already, maybe 5 last year, and all of them occasionally freezes, crashes, slows down. Sorry to say, but most probably is this is an Android question. Right now I have a S7 and an iPhone 6 Plus. Incredible how a two years old iPhone can be faster and smoother than the more powerful Android out there!

    Yes, I changed to iPhone as my main gadget because of that couple of years ago.

    Android lags sometimes. Might want to get a iPhone if you can't make it work.

    This is my 2nd android phone, first was the Priv, and I am not experiencing any of the lag you are stating. I have had lag at other times but rarely, mostly when I multitask into or out of a game. I've also had some lag when switching between camera mode and some other app.

    It's funny how people say iOS never lags. At work we use an iPhone 6 plus and my wife's iPhone 5s also has lags and stalls too.

    Bring it back to the nearest Samsung service centre they have a dedicated counter just for the S7 Edge.

    I used to have this problem but it soon disappeared however I had other problems too like battery overheating and running out within 3 or 4 hours and some other app issues. Samsung recommended me to wipe my phone and the battery problem and some app issue went away. The rest is structural so I have to live with.

    Assuming you have wiped the cache & deleted old apps that you may have loaded on previous devices, though no longer use?

    God forbid I go to open my camera and a text message comes in at the same time. My phone will have a full blown our seizure and the moment I wanted to snap with the camera is long gone by the time it recovers. FWIW, I had lag issues with my iPhone 6+ prior to switching.

    Wasn't noticing lag until the Sept update. Really frequent and prolonged.

    Only time I experience lag with my s7 edge is in power saving mode or my phone is really hot from being on it for a while. iOS is very impressive when it come to lower hardware to software running as smooth as it does. I've used an iPhone 5,6,6s and I always go back to my Samsung after a week or 2. Both phones are good in there own ways. Just up to you yo decide. I use the US snapdragon CPU model.

    Just an attempt to help at least one person stop the confusion - "lag" is slowness ON THE INTERNET. A conmputer running slowly, whether it's a mainframe or a phone, is just "running slowly". People in the industry read "lagging" in the title and come to answer a question about the internet - only to find that the question has nothing to do with lag.

    Please, people - learn what words mean, especially very technical words like "lag", and use them properly. (Well, at least someone use them properly. One less person confusing us would be nice.)

    UNBELIEABLE? OH!! It's believable because TouchWiz is messy!! I love Samsung hardware.... I just don't want their software.

    Lag might mean something completely different, stutter or janky is a good alternative to "lag".

    lag
    verb
    intransitive verb
    Definition of lag
    1
    a : to stay or fall behind : linger, loiter b : to move, function, or develop with comparative slowness c : to become retarded in attaining maximum value
    "they stopped to wait for one of the children who was lagging behind"

    I guess all of the children in the above sentence were using the Internet and one was experiencing slowness?

    The word lag is being used correctly in this context.

    There would be no crossroads with me. If I had a laggy phone I would return it for something else.

    Fortunately my S7 Edge runs great!

    This is really annoying to do but you might try doing a factory reset and start fresh.

    Technical terms as defined by a non-technical dictionary are incorrectly defined. Look up "client". My email app doesn't fit that definition.

    Android devices need to be maintained to keep the lag away. There are several ways to do this I would suggest you clean your device from any unwanted crap then look at apps that might also be giving you problems. Devices just don't slow down for no reason there is some underlying issue causing it. My edge flies all day with no issues but I also reboot daily and keep it clean on a weekly basis.

    I switch back and forth between an iPhone 6s and my S7 Edge. I can't remember ever experiencing any lag on my S7 Edge but constantly on my iPhone 6S.

    My Edge flies from one app to the next and never pauses or lags behind when I give it a task to perform. When I click on an app icon it comes up almost immediately without hesitation.

    Now my iPhone on the other hand...totally different story. I can set them side by side and usually the iPhone is a tad bit slower. Not much but it's noticeable.

    Neither are slow enough that I'd get rid of one or the other but I will use my iPhone for a couple days and I always go back to the Edge after that.

    One thing I will say is that I do prefer some of the app builds on IOS over Android. Some have slightly more functions and some tend to run a little smoother on IOS. But I don't believe that has to do with the phone. Just the app build quality. My personal opinion...

    And I do try to restart at least once a week.

    The whole lag issue is ridiculous... I am currently using a three year old Nexus 5 that has minimum lag issues. Sure TouchWiz is gonna be worse than Stock Android for lag but I have seen high end Windows gaming PCs experience serious lag, freezes, and reboots. Why? It depends a lot on how the user maintains and configures the system but even worse is the crap programs people like to install. All modern operating systems run well but are NOT perfect.

    The comments that iOS is better is BS. My GF just bought a new iPhone 6s and I have seen lag using it day one and she has been complaining of late sometimes the messenger app freezes on start. LOL

    So did you start with a fresh clean install of all of apps you continue to use or just transfer over all of the problems from the last device? That is where I would start if you have seen the same problem continuously.

    Actually, you just might. Do a factory reset and start fresh.

    No lag time for me. Try not having more than one or two widgets running, disable background data, etc.
