    Seriously considering switching to the s4 but I do notice lag/slow responsiveness on those s4 videos. Anyone else noticing this?

    I switched from the droid x to the iPhone because I was tired of the android lag time which I notice isn't apparent on iOS. I really want the s4 to be the one but I don't want that lag time back.

    I say wait till you can try it out before making your mind up.

    Bear in mind that it hasn't even been released yet:

    Those phones had pre-production OS.
    You gotta check out the final S4 when they are released.

    So a slight bit of lag here and there is your deal breaker? That's the number one thing you look for in an os? I'm asking because, if it is, and the iPhone already has that, why even switch?

    Well said.

    Anyway I too am looking to switch over from my iPhone 5. It'll depend on the price of unlocked version and reviews and hands on impressions. I think it has a great chance of impressing.

    from my personal experience all android phones, aside from the nexus line, have an ever so slight lag. I'm sure it has to do with the manufacture's skins (UI). Like someone else said, most of the videos of the s4 are not the final product, so the lag is nowhere near what you are seeing.
