    No lag whatsoever. This is THE BEST phone I've ever owned. Samsung has fixed all of the minor annoyances I had with the Note 2. They really hit it out of the park this time.

    I have no lag when it comes to opening apps and moving around the device but there is about a second lag when turning on and off the device. Sometimes it's shorter or longer but on average it's about a second. It's really annoying.

    No lag on this phone, the processor cuts through Samsung bloat like a hot knife through butter.

    haven't really noticed lag.... but I do notice some stuttering/choppiness in apps... mostly in the stock apps: messaging, email, and phone apps. Also the clock seems to not refresh itself when the screen is off. When you unlock the device you see the old time and then it quickly refreshes to the current time... same with some widgets.

    No lags at all. Just switched from iPhone 4 to note 3 and it is just fast. Samsung really got me into buying their product.

    Amen...except I don't know about the GN2 part. I just had a Razr Maxx HD that I loved until I touched this amazing device. No lag. No complaints except for needing a good stand-up case like I had for the RMHD.

    The note 3 is pretty fast. After hitting the screen on button, expect a second delay, but other than that is is one buttery experience considering the massive amount of pre loaded software. Go for it!

    There's definitely some lagginess in the stock video player with larger files that I didn't experience on the S3.

    Coming from a rooted note 2, there is a definite lag. I attribute it to the bloat from Sammy and especially Verizon.

    I am on Verizon. No lag.

    The only thing lagging is my thumb.

    To all of the Note3 owners, since there's no lag, how is the battery life vs S4?

    Im a sales rep @ Verizon and all of our customers have told us they get around a day out of the S4 with powersaving mode toggled on & moderate use. Our customers that have the note 3 have got up to 2 or 3 days with powersaving mode toggled on & moderate usage. I personally have a note 3 and have had it since It came out and I can easily get a day out of it. I consider myself to be pretty heavy user.

    I went from a s4 directly to the n3, the battery on the note 3 is significantly superior. I consider myself a moderate to heavy user.

    Never really took pics with my S4 as I only had it a few days but so far I enjoy the note 3 camera. In low light I get not so good pictures that looks grainy but besides that I have had a good experience.

    The NOTE 3's camera is superior to the S4's and you also get 4k and slow motion (120fps). But the S4's camera is still one of the best cameras on a phone today.

    As far as the lag goes, I tried all the recommended solutions but none of them worked for me. I then powered off my phone, waited a minute and turned it back on. My lag is now gone and the phone is fast. I do this about once a week and have had no problems with the speed of the phone.

    Me too. Had occasion to use my old max hd today. I never realized how slow it was. Note 3 flies in comparison.

    I'm satisfied with my Verizon stand up case.

    I have tested a Note 3 in a Samusng shop, no other non-stock apps loaded, it lags!
    - open the address book: slow
    - scroll up and and down: stuttering.
