The past week or so my phone has been noticeably laggy. I originally noticed while using Google keyboard. Then noticed occasional but frequent slow touch responsiveness issues. Performed a couple factory resets and even updated to 4.4.3 while continuing to see the problem. Has anyone else noticed issues? Are there any other fixes? Thanks for any tips or tricks.

You might want to try messing with CPU settings if you have root, (changing the governor, etc.), and see if that helps. If it doesn't, I would try a custom kernel like faux123's or franco kernel. If you don't want to try that, you might want to try and measure how much CPU the phone is using when its idle to help diagnose the issue.

I personally use stock 4.4.3 with faux123 kernel with the intillidemand governor and have no problems with lag.

If you do a factory reset and you're running the stock kernel and you haven't modified any system files and you don't have any user apps installed yet, that would sound like a hardware problem to me. If you have any user apps installed one of those might be the culprit. I'm running the stock kernel on 4.4.3 and performance is pretty damn good! And I haven't use a stock kernel in some time. Flashed the boot, radio and system images last night and everything is working fine. If you know how to flash the factory image you could try that, it can sometimes be more reliable than the results you get when doing the OTA. Otherwise... might need to do a RMA.

I've been using this rom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2633978 and stock kernel and I have no lag. I did have a little using stock odex rom from update.. Idk if your rooted & have recovery but if so try a rom.. I'm very pleased with the way this rom I'm on now feels. Its been great. Also not sure what all you have running app wise but reboot a few times a day may help..I'm quite sure you already know that..

Thanks for the help.
I am rooted with CWM. When I first noticed the issues I was on I believe Mahdi with with ROM kernel. I'm sure it's not the ROM since I use Mahdi quite a bit. Performed a few factory resets without resolve. Fastbooted 4.4.3. Without resolve. Unrooted and rerooted. Still lags. I don't recall a specific downloaded app that could have been the issue but did not Google recover this last reset and I think it may be better.
I'll post back after a bit.
Thanks again.

Perform a trim on your flash storage. Hopefully you know how to use adb.

adb shell

am broadcast -a android.intent.action.ACTION_IDLE_MAINTENANCE_STAR T

exit

Wait 30 seconds to a minute.

adb logcat -d | grep -i fstrim

It should now tell you that it trimmed your storage. Reboot and pray that it helped.
