the LG beats the Note. One of the most striking differeces is with Swiftkey. On the Note, there is a very noticeable lag when I type fast...both in the keypop animations and whats being typed on the screen. On the LG G2, everything seems instantaneous. I think it has alot to do with the governor/power management of the Note. I've looked at BBS stats and the Note spends alot of time at 250mhz. Between 1.9ghz and 250mhz there really isnt much activity. That tells me that for most tasks the Note sticks to 250mhz, and jumping straight to 1.9 only when pushed. Its great for battery life, but its probably whats slowing things down on this tablet.
