Lag could mean a lot of different things to different people.....to me lag is slow responsiveness. I always loved how fast the nexus could switch between apps, u literally could press the button and quickly press the app and keep doing it really fast and it'd keep up....on the s5, that's not the case, it takes a micro second longer to display the recent apps and sometimes if u touch the app too fast it'll close the recent apps instead of going the app. Something I've noticed but everyone's different.

I certainly am not returning this phone because of a micro second tho... I made money switching to this phone so eff it haha. But also stock KitKat is way faster than sense or touchwiz so that's a big factor too

It's funny. I've been using a Note 3 for a few months, rooted with a custom TW firmware. I recently took out my old M7 and realized how much faster and smoother the user experience is. I am not talking about how fast a app opens, as I am comparing a S600 vs a S800 chipset. The Note 3 clearly has much more power. Yet TW still stutters, even with 3GB of ram. Hell, even overclock and it still skips.
The same is with the S5. People who claim there is no lag haven't used a M7/M8 or a Nexus 5. Its pathetic that people have to wait for a custom rom or kernel to get their device operating as it should be. This is why I am skipping out on the S5 all together (for the record I have used one, on several occasions). That and absolutely no development yet. Samsung continues to disappoint, and reminds me a lot like Apple.

Those little "hiccups" that so many people are actually accepting, take a look at this video. This ties into the fluidity of the OS, and how much smoother the M8 is. One thing not mentioned here is how much faster opening up the recent apps opens up on the M8. Also, the S5 will shut down apps in the background while the M8 keeps a lot more open at a time.

Thread cleaned.

Leaving open for now as there are always observations and discussions to be had on UI performance but flaming or allowing this to turn into a fan ("My device is better than yours") thread will not be tolerated. Please troll elsewhere if that is your intent.

Thread will be closed if gets out of hand again.
Thank you.
