Default [Q] So.. Is the Galaxy Note slower and more laggy than GS II?

Hi dear,

I just read some posts that said Galaxy Note has some lags when scrolling and opening some apps..

So I want to ask the owners of GNote, do you really feel it's slower and more laggy than GS II?

If it's because of the resolution of the screen, would it be fixed in the future with ICS?

I need answers today as I was almost gonna get Note tomorrow morning but these posts make me confused...

It has better spec (actually almost identical to GS II) but doesn't feel good when scrolling? That sucks! As a owner of iPhone 4, I do not like that lag feeling..

If you have any second thoughts, just wait a while. Don't go buying like crazy.

But, is a small lag (that will probably be fixed at a later date) a real deal breaker? Coming from the Apple platform i think you will be blown away by the device.

Cool man.
I got it. It's not a real deal breaker, of course.
I'm going to get it due to its beautiful display.

Not sure where you get these rumours from! I have both and I have no lag at all. If anything it feels quicker then the SII but its hard to tell because both are lightning fast.

All of them or the scroll in touchwiz? If its all of them I think that will not be solution.

Really?

I just read it today in one thread....
And some owners said when they scroll the screen on home screen it's kinda more laggy than sgs II...

By the way, how is the text on browser?
Is it crisp and clear which can read without zooming in?
Can it be comparable to iPhone 4 screen?
Please let me know about it before I purchase tomorrow!

Just now I went into the Dubai mall Samsung store and played around with the 4 galaxy note units on display for an hour. I was gutted to see how laggy they all were. Web browsing (once page was fully loaded) and gallery app were simply not as responsive as the SG2 next to them. Also the pentile screen as much as I hate saying it but it simply is not as crisp. The difference is visible

My experience is very different to some of the comments here

I'm so disappointed - the form factor is great, it really is thin and light. I thought this would be my next device.

Oh I see..

So do you think it's worth to get galaxy s II more than galaxy note?

I was worrying about the pentile screen on galaxy note but some said it wouldn't be a problem...

I can't see this device in real even if I really want to.

But, although it's not as responsive as sgs II, does it have any lags?
