Default [Q] Lag when typing in whatsapp?

So, I've been having issues for a while when typing in whatsapp. When I first start typing everything is ok. But after a while, the keyboard becomes progressively laggier and reaches the point in which it is unusable because it doesn't register the letters correctly, it's like it can't keep up and only registers a few letters of the words or overwrites letters typed before. Deleting takes long too. Everything just stops working actually and I'm forced to go type somewhere else and come back and paste it in whatsapp.

Has anyone had this? I'm using the stock keyboard but have tried changing to google keyboard when I'm starting to see the lag and that keyboard just continues with the lag process. Any ideas?

I'm having input lag also. But not as worse as yours, but whatsapp just can't keep up with my speed of typing, while in Hangouts, I do not have such problems. It's just getting sluggish with typing.....Don't know the solution as neither whatsapp and swiftkey are responding to my mails....With another keyboard I do not have this problem
