I don't have any input lag really on my G3. I've uninstalled everything I can think of using TiBu after I ran the phone with them frozen for a few days... Plus I turned Animation Scales down to 0 In Dev Options.. .5 I didn't notice any lag either though.

I use Nova and I Swype with a themed Android L keyboard. Smooth!!!

I currently have the galaxy note II and the input lag is absurd, so I definitely do not want to get another phone like that. I'd be grateful for any response you guys could give me, thanks.

I've had my Verizon G3 a week now, and I've not had any noticeable lag on anything; I'm using Nova, turned down animations to 0.5x, and am stock and rooted. I use the Android L slide animations in Nova as well, and everything is quick and snappy. My G2 was great, but with a custom ROM, Xposed module, and a few other tweaks, I noticed that I would get some input lag, especially when hitting the "recents" key - it would literally pause for 2-3 seconds and then bring up my list of open apps. And I didn't have like 22 open running apps either. I would get SystemUI force closes periodically; think it was just Xposed not playing nice with my ROM (for some inexplicable reason)

Anywho, my G3 is by far and away the snappiest most responsive device I've had. The only thing that gave me input lag was putting the tempered glass screenie on...for the first few days I had to mash everything to get it to work. Now that its settled on things are back to normal.

It's not bad, but it feels like it's there to me (and yes I have all of those right now :/)

after searching, and reading numerous threads, i found @jntdroid almost sums up my question in a statement.
any perceived lag is relevant to your previous devices.
my current/previous DD is my G2, running slim rom (for many months, so i dont have reference to kk stock).
my G3 (got today new from swappa) seems (no doubt) way less responsive than the G2.

can anyone provide any more exact reference to help me decide if i should call this a lemon or accept it as common.

thanks for any input!!

It's common from every bit of my experiences around the g3, my own or the few around me that other people own. Granted there are a few who say they don't experience lag at all ans blast me for mentioning it (I call b.s.).

Couple that with the lack features, removal of features/options..and it's disappointing. LG kind of choked IMO. I'll be moving on to the Note 4.

I'm coming from a stock g2 and it is noticeable. It just lags throughout the launcher. I haven't tried another because I actually like the features on the stock one. Just hoping they come up with an update to fix.
