So, Ive been wanting to try out Android for a while and I just made the jump to the G3 because I LOVE the screen size to form factor ratio.

So pardon the Android NOOB question but I notice a TON of scroll lag on the G3. In Facebook, Chrome, Firefox (though less), Tapatalk, Textra, Email. Just about everywhere you can scroll I have seen stuttering.

Is that what people mean when they refer to "lag" on this device?

Is this specific to this device or is this more of a general Android problem?

Scrolling lag is due to the LG skin that they put on top of android. Its not android itself but the OEM that put their custom interface on the device.

I disagree, I believe its because of the SOC used. The S801 is primarily a 1080chip. It is pushing its limits trying to render QHD screen therefore performance is taking a hit. To get the performance on QHD of a phone like say the M8 (probably the smoothest Android phone to date), you need the S805 as a minimum (check Anandtechs S801 and S805 QHD comparisons).
At the moment you'd be looking at 1080 Android phones like the M8, S5 and Z2.....even the Nexus 5 for IPhone like performance using the current generation of Qualcomm chips.

I also think you're wrong. Tapatalk and Facebook are both laggy apps, even on the 1080p phones. Firefox has scrolling that can also come off as laggy.

There are some simple fixes.
A.
1. Nova or apex launcher
2. Uninstall all of the carrier apps you can.
3. Enable ART in developer options (tap build number 7 times in system software menu)

And or you can do this to further help out:
B.
1. Root
2. Debloat (remove apps that you normally cant in titanium backup)
3. Enjoy
