Default 4.2 Lag

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.

I like 4.2 I just don't like the lag. I looked thru the threads for a couple days now. Just haven't dug deep as it takes alot of time. I can google too. Your the one whos damn annoying right now- I'm just looking for help, not complaining. Look at my post, it even says I need help. Thanks for the worthless post tho.

p.s. I clicked your link. I'm not trying to downgrade- I'm trying to fix the lag. Can you google that one for me? I'm too lazy.

Hey mate, this isn't a "Post your question and we'll spoon feed you answers" forum. Saying that you don't have time to look for answers won't cut it.

As for lag, try to do a clean install.

This is XDA Developers, not XDA Lets create a new thread because I'm to lazy to look around for an answer.
I'm not going to spoon feed you. There are plenty of threads and posts out there that can be plenty of help. You just got to get off your ass and find them.
Here is your help.
Go.
Look.
For.
The.
Damn.

What are you guys the forum police?

I been around XDA a long time for a few of my devices. I came here for help. I don't know why I have to preface that with a bunch of stipulations (I did a couple, I HAVE looked for answers and listed what I tried for 2 days now). I don't have hours and hours to dig for weeks thru tons of postings. Like I said, I LOOKED for 2 days now.

I am genuinely asking for HELP. I don't want to downgrade- I want real post about what to try. I'm sorry that it is offending people. Your frustratred with my post and I'm frustrated just asking for help.

You guys are so uptight. Just want to hear from people with similar experience and workarounds or whatever it takes. I'm contemplating a factory restore but I have everything so dialed in the way I like it that i'm saving that as a last resort.

Do you know what backing up **** is? Use titanium backup to backup everything.
