I played with a tab pro 8.4 at Best Buy today for about 20 minutes because I was wondering if it could replace both my nexus 10 and my nexus 7 (2013). I think I changed my mind, given the sheer amount of lag I saw on any type of scrolling whatsoever. Changing home screens, flipping through the app drawer, scrolling in chrome, you name it. It was like using a device from 2010.

Boo on you, Samsung! Now I gotta shop some more.

Chrome works great for me. I haven't seen any delays in switching apps or opening magazine or multi window.

Then again, I have a clean install with a bunch of unused stuff disabled.

Don't go by the store demo. It's been discussed here before. The units in the store are running in an awful demo mode. It's very laggy and a terrible representation. I have the 8.4 and got rid of a Nexus 7 and an LG G Tab 8.3 and couldn't be happier.

I currently have the 2013 nexus 7 and have owned a nexus 10 both with custom roms and the stock 8.4 is faster then both, as mentioned you shouldn't base your opinion on a demo tablet

Well that's stupid. Why would they do that? It's got to hurt sales.

I doubt it matters. Most informed buyers buy based on reputable reviews from known sites.

People that buy based on playing with it in the store for a few minutes are either impulse buyers or are being sold by the salesguy.

That's the type of buyer that wouldn't know the performance difference either way...

Yeah I played with the 12.2, saw it lag numerous times and I love samsung products. I figured it was the demo software.

I never had any lag on my 8.4 with the stock OS. Now that I'm running crpalmer's CM 11, I can't remember what lag is.

Have you encountered any lag or skipping frames while watching HD videos using Mx player ?
