    Found this article this morning can't wait for it ! Now i don't have much lag/stutter issues but it's still nice to see samsung knowing there's it lag on their UI and trying to fix it. Anyone having lags on theirs ? Share your experiences

    My S8+ is the most lag free Samsung device I've ever owned. TouchWiz really seems toned down with this model.

    It's not toned down in any way shape or form. Bloated as ever if you look at the code. It's just been given a new coat of paint.

    I obviously didn't look at the code. I'm speaking in terms of how it feels. I've had the S4, S5, S6, S7 Edge and now the S8+ and in my experience, it seems to get less laggy with every new model. They're obviously doing something right.

    I keep asking 'what's this lag people keep talking about'? So I looked up a video:



    Well, thankfully, my phone has never done anything like that. Sometimes, though I'll be in an app and then press the home button and there is about 1/4 second delay like it had to wake up or something, but really that's not a big deal and it'll happen once. I can go back and forth between the app and the home screen instantly after that and even switch apps. It's like it was in a standby mode at first. That's the only time I think I've experienced any kind of "lag" and to me it's really not lag.

    A slow microsd card will do that like in the video yeah, although it's improved alot after a previous patch.
    In general my device isn't slow. But yes, it could be smoother. Like with iphones, which are very smooth.

    Can someone test this (I don't have my S8 right now):

    - Swipe down in your home screen to go to apps
    - Tap on the search bar

    Is there still a lag there? Like it takes few seconds to bring up the keyboard and the search suggestions?

    Is anyone else having problems getting the update?

    I have an AT&T S8+. The Play Store links take me to a page that says my device is not compatible. When I go to the Galaxy App store and search "Touchwiz Home", "Touchwiz", or "Home" I do not get results that include the launcher.

    I wonder if the lag issues are American...ie due to Snapdragon processor? I ask this because I have a UK model and it had exinos or whatever it is called processor and no lag at all.

    Minimal lag, less than a second.

    I have the version 6.1.09.2 and it was last updated on June 20th. Is that the update we are all talking about?

    I can only see it in my Galaxy Apps. If I go to Google Play Store, it says this app is not compatible with my device, which is S8.

    Canadian s8+ here had a bunch of updates on the samsung store,did them all and restarted. Had a bit of stutter on the app screen when swiping up but after updates seems there's no more stutter that i can notice.
