Well, seeing as I have my device in my hand, I can assure you that you're wrong about that. I've followed your instructions, scrolling by swiping from the top right to bottom left. I did it slow, moderately fast, and then as fast as I can physically swipe diagonally, and then even reversed direction. I did this multiple times across four screens of icons and the search page. And I found no lag or stuttering, just like when I scroll the way I normally do.

I DID come to two conclusions though:

1. Scrolling the way you describe is probably the most awkward way for me to scroll icons on my home screen, because it takes a lot more physical effort to swipe diagonally and still get the same speed as swiping horizontally. Even if my iPhone 5 were lagging using this method (which it isn't, I assure you), it's something I probably never do, unless told to by someone, and even then it's tedious. I'm already annoyed with myself at the amount of time I've wasted on this.

2. Really? THIS is what you're going to fixate on? Something that hardly anyone has been able to reproduce, using an action that is quite awkward, and has a totally insignificant effect on anything? Even when the OCD wackos on here have already found plenty of other, arguably more significant things to obsess over?

I mean even on the noticeably bad scrolling on Android phones, I might find the lag kinda disappointing, but not something worth even mentioning as a gigantic defect, insisting that EVERYONE make a big deal about. Again, there are plenty of way-bigger deficiencies I could obsess over if I wanted to.

No, smooth as expected by an Apple device.

This site causes this. I am 100% certain. Spend enough time at MacRumors and you WILL find something wrong with your phone that you didn't see before. :P

Drop your phone in a bowl of water and it will stop working properly.....I assure you.

You should all try it.

If you are swiping too much vertically when trying to do a horizontal scroll, perhaps the phone doesn't know what you want to do. You say it works much better when swiping properly, ie horizontally. Sounds like it is working when you give it a proper command.

It's not happening to my device. Maybe yours is defective. I'd take it to a genuis.

No you're doing it wrong . Swipe as fast as you can in a page in safari , up and down. It will stop responding to your touch after 10 sec.

This happens to ALL iphone 5's , trust me.

Tried it, you're wrong. Why would I trust you over my own eyes.

FACT, my iPhone 5 does not lag when I try your little tricks - dozens of others have told you the same thing. I'm sorry to break it to you; but you're wrong. It happens. Deal.

No no no, you're doing it wrong. You have to scroll up 5 times really fast, then down 13 times really fast. Repeat this 42 times. Now go run 3 laps around the block, come back to your iphone, and repeat until it begins to lag. Trust me it happens to ALL iPhone 5's.

I heard Apple's working on a fix.

No we are not stupid, but we don't care cause it is not an issue for normal use. If it did that during normal scrolling it would be a problem.

I'm sorry, but who scrolls that fast and diagonally and for 10+ seconds?

It's annoying that you're getting upset and telling these other iPhone 5 owners they are liars.

I "do" it how I use my phone every day. And guess what? No scrolling lag.

...because everyone totally visits web pages in Safari whose use case is for people to rapidly swipe up and down repeatedly for over ten seconds. All the time.

But it doesn't matter anyway, because I STILL can't get my phone to lag.

So, one other guy can make his iPhone 5 glitch while fervently stroking the screen diagonally for a certain amount of time.

Let's make you happy, then: You're right. Every iPhone 5 is defective and dangerously unsafe due to this glitch that hardly anyone else can reproduce by trying hard to delibearately do so, let alone in normal, everyday use.

Now, what have we accomplished? Well, since you insist that EVERY iPhone 5 has this horrible defect, returning it for another one won't help.

Guess that means you need to get yourself an Android phone! Oh, wait...

My iPhone 5 does not have a lag

People need to stop trying to make problems where there arnt any. Like when they said the iPhone 5 can't swipe diagonal fast. I have played fruit ninja many times and never had that problem either.

I'm not experiencing problems in fruit ninja but it lags when swiping diagonally in pages.

May I suggest: The iPhone 4 Antenna Song (substitute "lag" for "antenna" and "iPhone 5" for "iPhone 4").
