I have had my European G3 for a couple of days and what's getting me off is the small (and sometimes bigger)
lags here and there. Its probably mostly up to LGs skin a and apps but I rather not starting out using Nova because I think the functions are pretty good.

Right now the darn keyboard is lagging precisely that the ripped variant did on my M8, darn lag....


Anyone got any tips. So far I've tried:
1. Reset. Works for a while ...
2. Root n freeze n grenify. Well, it's lagging

So? Anyone with the same experience and maybe a fix?

Edit. I think I've got some of of the lag away.
So far I've tried the following:

1. Root
2. Greenify
3. Changed read ahead etc with trickster
4. Changed minfree and applied som launcher tweaks
5. Developer settings stuff
6. Other than that adfree, probably at a cost

The launcher and apps is now feeling a bit snappier and the battery should not be worse at least.
Just give me a Nexus/Silver with a great camera/app...

Smart(er) phones:
iPhone 3, N1, Optimus 2X, Xperia Arc, iPhone 4, Xperia S, Motorola Razr, Galaxy Note, One X, Samsung Galaxy S3, Sony Xperia V, Padfone 2 + "New", Note 2, iPhone 5, HTC One S, S4, Xperia ZR, LG G2, N5, Z1c, HTC M7 & M8, S5, G3, etc...

Pads:
iPad, Asus T1+T2+Prime, Galaxy Tab 8,9. iPad2, Nexus 7, Padfone 2, iPad4. PadFone 4, New PadFone

If I helped you hit "thanks"

In developer's options either scale animations to 0.5 or off completely, see if it works

The phone reduces it's cpu clock speed when battery is low or cpu gets hot.

Weird. I haven't gotten any lags or stutters with mine.
Only bug happened was when I wake the phone it instantly locks it again. So I just restarted it and everything is fine.

Maybe try swiftkey? It's free and I love it with my Note 2 - especially the ability to control how long a long press is for numbers etc. Let me know how it is if you do, since I plan on using it with the G3.

Also, maybe something like Greenify will help hibernate more background processes and make it heat up less and free up the CPU?

I find lag on first day of use. Didnt install any app yet.

I think it was way over bloated with carrier app. Try disable a few with titanium backup. It seemed to help alot in my case.

Uninstall the bloat. I have zero lag after uninstalling it. When I first got the phone it did lag because of the unnecessary bloat. I use the google keyboard (android l) and it works fine.
