Since there is no standardized definition of "lag", saying a device has lag or not, is merely stating a personal impression.
Agreed. Best explanation thus far. Every device has lag (period). However after saying that... I believe my S5 is under .3 sec in most operations. Impo, when you hit under .33 sec most people will not notice.

Placing my S5 next to my G-Pro and an S3, I can barely tell any difference at all. The S3 has more but I have to concentrate to see it and have them side by side

Speaking of lag...this is sort of related in a round about way, LOL

Can anyone running "swiftkey" pop into your running apps/processes and see how much ram it is eating. (as long as your runtime has not been changed) if you dont know what that is, then it has not been changed. I see something interesting and just wanted to confirm. thanks

Here is what iv'e done this far that would have an effect on perceived "lag"

1. Turned off animations. Biggest difference thus far in perception of speed "lag"
2. Debloated which in turn got rid of a few things running in the background http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2719325 . Made a noticeable difference, but not as much as # 1
3. Switched my runtime to ART. No perceivable difference so far but its only been converted over for a couple hours. I'll report back in a few days. May or may not have some very slight benefit in other areas.
4. Side loaded Google experience launcher (now launcher) what ever you want to call it. Seemed snappier but it may have been a placebo effect. Not enough difference in any case to cause me to keep it. I did not care for the overall look and resolution. I also tried Nova launcher; I think it is the best alternative launcher right now for the s5 although the perceived lag was only minutely improved if at all, there are other benefits to Nova. After saying that I'll admit that I did not keep Nova but not because of any inherent problems, only because I actually don't think that Touch Wiz is bad after turning off the bloat and the animations. It is a heck of a lot better than it was on the s3....that is certain.
5. Pray daily for root exploit...seems to help a bit

Default Art run time and "lag"

update to changing run time.

I completed testing today using a variety of methods.

ART is actually slower at the moment. Of course it is still young and should get better. ANTUTU shows lower scores and I see more lag time in opening apps versus Dalvik. Oddly enough though I see less ram usage in certain apps under ART. This is curious as the way ART is set up, you would think you might see more ram usage or at least the same.

At the moment I am back to Dalvik, animations disabled, touchwiz, and apps that I dont use disabled (at least the ones I can disable). Perceivable lag is nominal at most (to me)

I assume the delay that is present in TouchWiz is due to allocated resources for things like smartstay, multiwindow, airview... etc. unfortunately that is a trade off you have to make if you like or want those features.
