Its been a great experience so far but touchwiz seems to be laggy at times especially when performing the simplest of tasks. Opening contacts is sometimes disgusting on the Note III. It takes a few seconds to open and for a phone packed with the S800 clocked at 2.3Ghz, 3GB of RAM its quite disappointing.
I posted this just to see if I'm the only one experiencing this if not I hope I can get a solution plus I've already downloaded the 27MB stabilisation update.
Thanks in advance.
Sent from my SM-N900 using xda app-developers app
al i can say i had many htc device's ( htc desire hd, htc one x and a few others )
i then( for various reasons ...eg ,mainly battery life ..heat ,bad customer service etc ) switched to note 2 and now note 3.(Very happy overall ).
first of all ,i never use Touchwiz ,been using Nova premuin all along and very happy with Nova.!...
I do not have any noticeable lag, on my n9005 ( as you summed it up .." S800 clocked at 2.3Ghz, 3GB of RAM " and I say its just the opposite of " disappointing. " )
My contacts etc opens fast,smooth .. ,No problems .
battery i get, + - 3 % drain overnight re 10//12 hours etc .etc
i am still on original stock ,not rooted and have done no updates,and i am enjoying my Spen features !!!!
i feel i have " tweaked " my phone just right !
So my advice is not hoping on some update ,but start looking at ways in how you can identify lag etc .(reading, searching, worked for me )
I will give you one tweak ,that worked for me( previous note 2 and 3 ) ..pressing home button normally resulted in a slight lag .,
I disabled Svoice( i dont use it ) my lag on phone home button is no more !
