Don't all phones lag from time to time? I never used a Note 2 but I notice lag on all my devices, nexus 10, iPad 3, iPhone 4S.

I can even take screen shots of it on my iPhone.



It was just hanging there for long enough for me to get frustrated, then decide to and take a screen shot. Then screen shot lagged to but was instant once the lag stopped. Ignore my goofy friend texting me.

Here is lag starting messages and Facebook.

Waiting for messages to populate



Just waiting on Facebook



Point being I've think we've gotten passed the point where device lag enough to care comparing. My Nexus lags the least BUT poor coding in apps make certain apps lag more then I notice on iOS. iPad 3 just sucks, I've found the 4 to be much better.

Do you guys on cleanrom use the ace all carrier edition or the ATT edition? What's the difference?

Well said! You've summed it up very accurately.

It's an awkward size, too big to be a phone and too small to be a tablet replacement. I dont miss my note 2 at all. I think I might give the 6.3 Mega a try, because if it's over 6" it may actually be a tablet killer

ACE is the International version. AT&T version is the AT&T stock version. So if you don't want any of the AT&T bloatware, go with the ACE version.

People keep going on about the difference in the screen size, but is this not the resolution of each device?

note 2 720 x 1280

iphone 5 640 x 1136


seems like as far as screen real estate, there is not a huge difference? Or am I missing something?

I'm curious when I read about bloatware slowing down a phone and causing lag and other issues, why is that? I mean with all the bloatware I have I don't believe any of those programs are running or memory resident so how would they cause slowdown versus something like Cleanrom?

I'm just curious if a custom rom would cure the lag the note 2 has and why.

Had the note 1 and now the s3.

Very happy with android and the s3 is the perfect size.

Android can run at different resolutions, iphone cant. In other words, android can have different screen element size. See here for example: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2123368

I didn't have any lag with the bloatware. I just didn't use those apps

So its just a space issue? I always get confused why people hate the stock roms so much. I just recently rooted and to my pleasant surprise it didn't wipe out my stock rom so I ended up keeping it. Its still laggy though and I get tempted to use cleanrom, but it sounds like it probably won't be less laggy.

It is a stock ROM. I've just always been in the habit of removing everything that I don't use. I've had 2 of these, my cousin has 1, my uncle and his wife each have 1, no lag. I have no idea why you have lag in yours.
