Default bad all around lag after 4.4.2 update

After taking 4.4.2 update last night phone has massive lag. All apps are affected. Have done factory reset, cleared cache, Uninstalled and disabled various things. No luck. Anybody else experiencing. Phone is not rooted.

I would factory reset everything. Start fresh without apps . I've noticed on 4.4.2 leak nc2 I had some lag if I froze some of the Verizon apps unfreeze them and had no issues after. Hope that helps only thing I turned off was caller ID but I'm rooted so factory reset is easier for me

Tried it. I had a brief few minutes lag free but then it came back.

Is this happening before all your apps restored, if you are restoring them? Or are they in the process of downloading and installing?

Thanks for the reply. After the update it ran its little app optimization process and then begin installing various updates. I assumed lag was normal then, but after several hours was still getting the lag. Last night the lag decreased before I went to sleep, but this morning it is back. I have developer mode active and I have the CPU process overlay and the one item I see spiking with high CPU usage is the the kernel process kworker. Did I get a bad dose of kernel?

The only thing I can think of is, if you want to try it, run a factory reset, do not restore any apps and see if things settle. It could be an app that is causing a conflict.

I know this may sound silly but take out your battery for about 30 seconds. I have this problem occasionally and when it occurs my phone is extremely hot. I have to shutdown... pull battery... and all is good until it happens again. Happens to me at least once a day.

Removed my Spigen s-view case and lag stopped almost immediately.

Same problem here. All around lag from typing to within app use, terrible slowness plagued my device. Removing s-view case removes all noticeable lag immediately. Using Spigen s-view case as well.
