Does KitKat still have lag?

On stock G2, lag is pretty easy to see. Kill all apps, open up Settings or Contacts. Then swipe between tabs, and you'll see a pause as its refreshed and drawn. After a few times its then cached and switching is smooth.

Is this kind of lag still present in the 24A rom?

Still a slight draw lag. You may want to think what this has to do with GRAM, and overall cache, app coding(cant say the best for some of stock lg crap), and memory management. If the app is not killed, there is no lag with battery savings due to GRAM and no draw/cache refresh. This is user error and misunderstanding. There is no need to kill all apps, it only causes harm. This is not an iPhone or some other POS phone. The only apps needed to be killed are "rouge" apps like crap ass Facebook.

The point is not about keeping apps in memory. On a phone this fast there should be no lag in a freshly loaded app like contacts. There's no lag on nexus 5, windows phone, iPhone, motox etc, even on Sense. This lag is due to Optimus I feel.

That's why I ditched it for an M8. This puppy is completely unlocked and buttery smooth. I shouldn't have lag on a flagship phone in 2014. Nope.

Camera for all purposes is superior. I don't blow up photos and crop, so I'm sure G2 is better there.

Haters gonna hate though. Dev community is full of some old faces from the GNex community.

I am on kit Kat and I don't know what you are talking about. All lag is gone from the lock screen, the dialer, the camera, and the messaging app. I get a very slight redraw on the stock launcher, but only when my 9 widgets are updating. This thing is way more responsive than my iPhone ever was.

The lag is like 1/3 a second, on a few stock apps. Like ECrispy, I assume it's something in LG's UI coding coupled with the way GRAM works. Otherwise, flawless in all other apps. On a side note, that same lag that was present in recent apps loading is now completely gone... *shrug*
I used the M8 for a week, nty.

My KK is running faster than 12B. It also feels like it boots up faster and the whole knock-on feels twice responsive.

Mine was a little laggy with 4.2.2 but since updating to 4.4.2, rooted with Google launcher, this thing flies

I just updated my mom's stock G2 to 4.4.2 via OTA. I compared it with my G2 4.2.2 stock rooted. here what I tested so far launching apps side by side.

*camera, gallery, knock on, dial pad, playstore, gmail, text massaging app, taking pictures, are all hair faster even pressing the power button wakes the screen faster.

same speed
*knock off(turn screen), launching hotspot(new icon),

*swiping down on lock screen for notification is definitely less choppy

Just a slight lag. Much better before the upgrade
