I had this problem with my I9195. Flashed a custom ROM and the problem went away straight away. All games are now really smooth.

I emailed samsung about this issue:: my email ::
Your question
hi sir,
this is Amit Chauhan, from Delhi, India.
I bought samsung S4 mini on 18 october 2013 and after using it for about a month have noticed certain anomaly with the handset, which is also observed by various other users, have read a lot of forums including xda.
the issue is:: with the processor.. i suppose.
its clock fluctuates a lot as is observed by me by using an app CPU-Z.
actually need to check this arrived when almost all games - light / heavy showed lag/ stutter for few seconds in between. also same thing is also observed while in menu , or watching videos . i.e video appear as if it is shot in slow motion,occasionally..
while playing candy crush saga too..sometimes candies explod in real slow motion.. so maybe the problem is with some code related to the use of processor, its clocking speed, which forces the processing to reduce to a level which causes lag in games/ menu/ video playing... maybe the issue is with graphic handling...
kindly fix the issue as its bugging the otherwise a good handset.
thanking you

Amit Chauhan
