My phone was lagging on heavy games such as Dead Effect, End of tomorrow and asphalt 8. My phone also lags on 2d games such as virtual city (heavy volume objects). I thought that s4 was a good phone but now I had a bad impression in gaming.

Anyway, I am using Phoenix rom v8.

I have no idea if the "rom" affects the game because of some scripts or is it just my phone. I really have no idea what was causing.

Is it because of ext2sd? Greenify?

I optimize the ram before I play and see if 50% of ram and below is available.

I am a noob? Yes.

Sounds like it may be the DVFS introduced by Samsung that a lot of people have problems with. There is a way of disabling this, check the link below.

Thank you so much!! To be honest, I didn't know it was the cause of bottleneck. I tested some games including the ones I mention and yeah, it was awfully working now as it is..
