Default [Q] Severe wake up lag

I've had fairly severe wake up lag on my Note 3 since the beginning, 4-6 seconds is fairly common (6 seconds means it flashes the screen and blanks it out again, going back to sleep, but then I can wake it up again and it responds in 1-2 seconds). I've never seen this on my Galaxy SIII with the same set of apps, but as soon as I got the Note 3, I saw the delay. I've swapped out for a new one (different reason) and see the same behavior.

If it is not common, I'd have to attribute it to an app...but honestly this is a base OS function, no app should be holding the phone in deep sleep. Any ideas would be helpful.

Are you rooted? This MOD really helps the delay.

So you no longer use an sd card in your phone? Seems like there should be a better way around than that...

i had a 64gb class 10 sd card i got for 15 dollars. 64 is kinda over kill for me. but yeah i 32 gb is enough for me, i still got like 18gb of free space left lol or something like that.

edit: but apparently the the guy up there said kitkat fixes that.

Wow, good call! My first Note 3 had the proximity sensor go bad, and then stopped recognizing my SD card. I figured the phone was just a lemon, so I transferred the SD card into the new phone and it didn't recognize it either so I just left it in. After you said this I removed the SD card and it's vastly improved, so far it's back to the normal 1-2 second lag max (so far).

If you are rooted, i would advise you to use the Vulpix Mod. It works!

it has helped me greatly reduce the wake time. though, its been months since i flashed it and i believe the wake time to be gaining again.

The update to NB4 pretty much eliminated all lag. I can click the lock and wake button all day and it instantly goes on and off since the update.
