EVERYTHING I've read is indicative of it being due to CPU scaling - someone said their Note (using Exynos 4210) doesn't have home button lag on turning the screen on - this happens when the phone isn't sleeping fully. I therefore suggest that if you want to test this properly, you should also do a test with a locked CPU clock, and see if it's faster...
Most likely it will be identical, and you can decide between forcing up your clock speed (and having 10 minutes of battery life), or using the regular clock-speed governors and accepting a little bit of lag when ramping up.
I'm using No frills CPU control to see if this phone stay in high freq. longer or not, and see nothing abnormal about it. (smartassv2 , 14% 1.2ghz max, 45% 184mhz min)
I also report recent app list more snappy jump up when I'm using apps so it's not about ramp up lag. And the map really run much much faster than before, not placebo.
Just restart after seeder_v6 a few hours ago, it's been 3 hours from full charge and I'm at 95%, I used to drain about 10% / night (12am to 7am) before this mod so that's no difference.
Of course if can be less lag by another reason but I also doubt it because of higher freq. , at least in my case.
PS: I also have more free ram now, before max free is around 130, now it go up to 170 sometime, this script should not related to any of this, but I didn't do any tweaking to the phone lately.
