CyanogenMod 11 M5 is great, no doubt about that, performance is better, it's way cleaner and streamlined, less bloated and the latter...
It's been a few days probably, almost a week since I've been using CM11, it's somewhat stable, but after digging across the new features and whatnot, I came across one small hiccup.

Screen recording is VERY LAGGY.

For a phone that sports the following specs:
  • 1.4GHz Quad Core Exynos 4412 Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • Mali-400MP4 GPU
and the rest which I'm too lazy to type...

I find it difficult to believe that the phone would be so laggy, close to an unusable state in screen-recording mode, I've tried other apps like screencast (am I right?) and REC. (one of the most popular kitkat recording apps) but all seems to have the same very laggy results.

I've used the ADB method (which I believe is the one also used by REC.) in kitkat which is really laggy as well.

Tried workarounds:
- Rebooting
- Setting minimum clock to 1.4GHz

Video showing how laggy the device is in screen recording mode:

I also saw another guy using an S3, but a different version (SH-i747)
The only main difference between the int'l version and his version is that the SH-i747 has 2GB of RAM, a (lower) dual core processor, and (not sure if better or not) Adreno 225 GPU

I really really really hope you guys could help with this prob, I don't really see why screen recording is so slow with a phone at this arsenal. Please do help, much appreciated

Device Info:
  • Device: Galaxy S3 int'l [GT-i9300]
  • ROM: CM11 M5
  • Kernel: Stock CM
  • Android Version: Kitkat 4.4.2

I think its laggy because the Galaxy S3 doesn't have this feature enable by default. Plus we're talking about an experimental feature here. Hopefully this mod can be updated to perform better.
