If clearing the cache doesn't do enough for you there is always doing a factory reset. I know it's a pain but it's well worth it. I had an app that was causing some problems on my device (like rebooting it randomly) even after uninstalled and a buddy of mine that has the same phone was complaining of major lag problems. We both did a reset and restored our apps and they both run like new again. If you have the time do it. It will be worth it in the end.

I cleaned the app data from Gmail and noticed after a couple of times dramatic improvement in performance in the app. I would suggest doing the same to other apps which are backed up in the cloud, especially those that have been installed on your phone for a long time and have item on top of item written, some of which may be conflicting. Do this before doing a factory reset (especially since Helium doesn't work with this phone. Why Motorola won't fix this to bring it in line with other Android manufacturers, I don't know).

Do you have apps grouped into folders on your home screen? See if removing the apps back into one app/no folders improves the lag. It did on mine and I totally tripped over it. Same apps as individuals? Works fine. As soon as I group the same apps into folders? Slows down.

Maybe it's just me, but ungrouping them helped a good bit.

Developer options... Change window/transition/animator scale from 1 to .5, you should see improved responsiveness

A few weeks ago I cleared the cache but it didn't show any appreciable difference in performance. Still very sluggish.

Bit the bullet and did a factory reset and the phone acted like it did when it was new. It was actually enjoyable to use it again.
