Default [Q] New Hangouts with SMS integration has slowed down my phone

Hey, I don't know if you guys have had this issue, but since Hangouts came out with the official SMS integration update, my phone has been behaving like my old Droid Incredible.

Things I have noticed:

Phone would freeze for no reason for 10-20 sec at a time.
Phone at times would require a battery pull
Camera would go on but show just a black screen
WiFi and LTE would seize up like it was being overworked (I know, SMS goes through cellular not data)

Once I uninstalled the update everything went back to normal. I also uninstalled the beta of the "Cover" lock screen just for good measure.

Anyone experience this?

I haven't noticed any of this. I have noticed a decrease in battery life since installing the new hangouts. Since installing new hangouts Google services is always my #2 battery drainer.

Exact same behavior on my SGS3. Phone is almost unusable at times, stock 4.1.2 Rom. Was fast an responsive before update. Now when phone rings some times I can't even answer! I am going to remove and see if performance improves.
