[Q] Help with TouchWiz stuttering. :(
As the title suggests, I am experiencing a little bit of trouble with TouchWiz stuttering from time to time.
By stuttering, I mean when scrolling across home screens from time to time it will lag. Going to the app drawer sometimes lags and when scrolling in the app drawer it sometimes lags too.
It doesn't stop there; sometimes when I open/close a folder the animation is quite laggy, going into TouchWiz based apps suzh as Phone, Contacts, Messaging etc. seems slow to open (I know you can keep them in memory, but you should't have to on a phone as powerful as this).
The most confusing part is the camera app... When taking a picture there is shutter lag, and the S3 boasted 0 shutter lag, and so does the S4... But there is some lag there too.
Any suggestions on how I can improve performance?
Things I've tried
- FULL Reset.
- Regular RAM clearance.
- ROMs (which I don't like because they always have something wrong).
- Turning off ALL pointless features.
- Turning off animations.
- Overclocking, which somehow make everything worse on a different kernel.
So I've tried a lot, but not everything. A different ROM is out of the question.
And yes, I know that Samsung under develop TouchWiz which is why it is laggy, but has anyone tried to re-design it? Make it better?
Lag and/or stuttering on a phone that has a Snapdragon 600 and 2GB of RAM is just ridiculous. And I know, the best of phone experience lag... I've seen my mate's iPhone 5 lag; but that doesn't lag all of the time, and that's not even close to being as powerful as the S4 (taking many factors out of it).
Thank you in advance for any and all help, it's much appreciated!
