I have rooted it, is there a ROM to get rid of the nasty lag??
Also battery life has gotten worse it seems since ive had it, moderate use drains battery in 10-12 hours
Yes, there is. If you are rooted and have safestrap installed, or have a developer edition S5, there is a ROM in the Android Development by elliwigy that is heavily debloated and runs great. I've been running it for about a week now and it is as smooth as it comes, plus it is very lean in that most of the bloatware has been removed. However, if you use some of the Samsung "special features" such as Health or Fitness apps your out of luck because they have been removed, but you can always go back and install those apks if you'd like. And, unlike many ROMs, every primary function works (data, phone, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, camera etc). Give it a try, you're lag will be GONE.
