Default [Q] i9505 lagging on heavy games

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..
