i noticed same thing on my i9000.
-ui constantly lags
-apps take 2s (ok) to 10s (very much meh) to load. and make ui suffer even more. i had no funky services in background.
-multitask menu bacground is sometimes missing.
-even the touch seems to lag, it sometimes feels like its one touch late. i never had this before.
-daily use of this v4 is like phone always telling you "heh f$$$ you, im busy doin' stuff in the background right now, come back later, dare to touch me again i will freeze for the next 5 seconds".
this is why i restored to v3. just my feedback. no offense or flame intended.

on the good side :browser seems a lot faster to display full web page than v3 and also blacklist calls works now and the phoning apk is much better than v3

i restored to v3 with everything about telephony and browser from v4. so far its gone smooth again

I had similar lags, flashing Mackay kernel helps but I am back on CyanAosp, and it feels better (even if it is not as beautiful as this one). Using stock everything and call delay is down to about 1 or 2 seconds but not a lot of people call me
This Slim kat is a great effort though, congratulations.

The best ROM would be a KK ROM which can show up the incoming call instantly. So far no KK ROM has managed that. Can any of our esteemed devs port incoming call stuff from 4.3 or even 4.2.2 to 4.4? Just saying...!


sorry for offtopic, but what kernels is best to use, is most uptodate for 4.3.1 slimbeam?

I will answer for part 1 only .

1a.To clear all; use 2 fingers and pinch

1b.For slow animation ; dont kill app, if you kill an app that have a service the service will restart and it is the worst thing to do.

Sorry for the long absence.

Two things:

1. THANK YOU, team, for another awesome release.

2. Regarding the dreaded Caller UI lag, for the life of me, I won't take that ”low end device” tripe again; it's simply not true. It's just bad coding on Google's part. Yes, SGS 1 has less RAM, but the exact same delay is present on all the newer/newest devices. I saw it on SGS 2, 3, 4 and Note 3.

Well, three.
What can we do to minimize the caller UI lag?
First off, keep your number of running apps at a minimum. Facebook is a major culprit, and so are most of the messaging clients (WhatsApp, Chat, SlimIRC & so on).
Avoid using Hangouts as an SMS app. It's a hog.
Disable/uninstall YouTube, Google Play (remanence), Google Plus, Google Now, Dash Clock and any other crap that wants to ”keep awake” your phone. Oh, also get rid of Greenify and manage your apps via permissions: it's much more effective.
In doing so, I now get my Caller UI faster than my son's SGS 4....

Cheers all!

Thanks for this informative post, but it would be great if you could explain the Greenify thing you said with an example.

Well, man, at some point I grew tired of seeing the „Superuser was granted to Greenify” toast message while being in another app - no matter what app. So I started a simple process of elimination: I wrote down (yeah, who does this anymore?) Greenify's list of background processes and dealt with them myself, one by one. That, and the „running apps” list (including the cached ones).

I only use Nova Launcher, so what business had Google Now launcher to be running? Or YouTube? Or Google Play? Or Google Plus? Or Hangouts? Or SlimIRC? Or DashClock? Notice these aren't „just a few innocent running apps” - they represent quite a lot for our veteran phone, if you are to add them up.

So I took them out - the above plus several more - by disabling, uninstalling or limiting them, whichever the case, including uninstalling Greenify altogether. The phone is now responsive as it should be.

In my subjective experience, at the very least.
