I have been having lag issues since upgrading to 4.2
I been lurking around the post looking for answers but nothing I've tried has worked so far. There is lag everywhere- from the lockscreen to opening an app to closing an app to pauses and freezing in browsers (i use 4 diff browsers with no real preference), and tonight I was frustrated enough with the slowing buffering in the YouTube app that I'm now posting this.
If I don't fix this soon I'm just going to sell it. I put up with lag on my Samsung Fascinate for 2 years and I thought those days were behind me. Ugly lockscreens I can live with- lag I CANNOT.
I tried rebooting after update. I even shut down and let it sit awhile an hour later.
I tried clearing the cache from the new option in Settings
I tried some app from the market that adds blank files and delete them (cant remember what its called right now) EDIT: Its called Forever Gone and its in the Google Play store.
I don't have time to read thru tons of postings to find the answers- so hopefully I can get consolidated answers in this post.
I've never rooted or ROM'd this device. Its been flawless since the day I bought it until the update. I am not looking for people to chime in saying theirs works great. I just want helping on getting this device back to buttery smooth please.
EDIT: Thanks to idevice12345 post, I found that my lag problem stemmed from Google Current's sync feature. Turning that off in Google Current's settings and rebooting has fixed 99% of my lag. Hopefully that helps others-- getting help around these forums is a nightmare. Self appointed knuckleheads trying to derail our information highway.
