I haven't removed one piece of bloat and still on the stock rom (yesterday installed a custom kernel, but it was actually faster before that. i did it for battery life) and it's still running faster than ever. You might have a defective one.

No problems here, all bloat installed. Actually I have 752 apps installed.

I've used many different kernels and roms, stock and custom.

Only time there is any lag is when the apps are auto updating.

Try disabling any auto update, i.e. play store and Samsung apps.

Either set a schedule or do it manually.

Hope that helps, and I made the jump from s3 to the s5 as well.

DONATE TO ME
I would honestly try going back to pure stock and see if you get the same results.
It could be the ROM you're using may have an issue, going back to pure stock can help rule that out.
Alternatively, getting a logcat and seeing if there's a ton of error messages may also do the trick.

I'm on stock rom and rooted. No lag whatsoever. Your running a custom rom and complaining about lag?? There's your issue right there. Most people completely stock don't even have your lag complaints.

Walk that iPhone 5S into the nearest Apple store and ask them to reimage your phone to one without iOS 8 beta....

If you are looking at a replacement, the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5 with the latest updates is a very solid performing and non-laggy device.

My S5 works great and is:

1. A stock device with no root or customized ROM.

2. Loaded down with a lot of applications and widgets, but I've tested them over the years on an S3 or Nexus so I have a good idea of what is CPU heavy or battery heavy.

3. On the latest firmware (at least until 5PM PST when the VoLTE update is pushed) G900TUVU1ANE6.

4. Turned off S Voice as I primarily use Google Now.

An extra app I do use that I recommend is "AppMgr Pro III". It helps me determine what applications can be moved to SD Card. Some can be moved, but may impact widgets and what not, so it does a good job of letting you know if that is an issue or not.

Now that you are off your laggy phone, tell us how you love your S5

There are some bad S5's out there, got one yesterday. Lag was terrible, almost impossible to type because of the delay, scored low on Antutu, etc. Phone had other issues too - screen had uneven discoloration to it and bottom touch key buttons were unevenly lit.

Exchanged for another one and it was like night and day. All same apps installed, same settings and this new one has almost zero lag, typing is fine. If your phone has severe lag and stuttering, might be worthwhile to get it exchanged... My first one was a major lemon all around.
