People always say that Android was fixed at jellybean but this shit still happens! I've had the entire note line and everyone one of them has lagged after a few months.
Now before you talk about closing apps. Why don't I need to do that on iPhone and whats the point of 3gb of ram?
have you ever tried an Android phone for more than a month?
Pajeet your CM is placebo. Not only that, but it's probably even worse than stock roms
>have you ever tried an Android phone for more than a month?
Gonna need proof, not just "yeah huh cause I said so!"
>Pajeet your CM is placebo. Not only that, but it's probably even worse than stock roms
So you know it's a placebo but you've never actually used it yourself.
I smell troll.
real talk i was on the iphone 4, 4s, 5, 5s, and 6 and shit was cash money. moved to a motorola droid turbo for muh battery life meme and muh droid meme, got tricked by /g/ and linus. god damn shit sucks. shit is slow, screen blows, touch screen blows, apps fucking crash lol menus are fucktarded.
Both android and IOS have the same problem: updating to the next major release completely wrecks everything.
The new version always requires more ram and resource for basic things and the phone usually is not even designed for that increase usage unless it comes with that version by default.
On IOS it's devastating because you are forced to upgrade to install any app from the store.
Also IOS has more aggressivepolicies for closing down background apps, I'm pretty sure I remember there's some limit that prevents a background application to use the network for more than 10 minutes or something dumb like that, it also forcefully closes apps more aggressively than android.
Also the last trick: UI in IOS has a higher priority than anything else. Some apps will even stop doing their stuff if you start swiping a lot.
so here it is
Thats exactly it.
I dont get why people want samsung shit so much. Its nice at first but quickly goes downhill. samsung gives a bad name for android. Get Nexus, Sony, LG, HTC, or literally anything else. Cant wait to get my LetV One Pro.
Most people who say this either use touchwiz, have Facebook installed, or use a shitty chink Android "phone" because they can't afford the flagships. Get any flagship besides the GS5 and the HTC One M9 and you'll be golden.
It was just an example. The note line usually has the most powerful processor at the time of release.
Yeah they always have excuses. They tell you all the good shit but forget to mention all the shit. Just like Linux.
I just told you. Note 5 now.
Bro why would anyone like about this. Just search it up. Or just watch phone reviews. Go onto Android Authority and the s6 marshmallow review even mentions it. Android Authority of all places!!!
Galaxy s5 running cm13. 6 hours sot with google play services. Only lag I've experienced is on power saving mode while trying to play some CPU intensive game. Touchwiz was different, my phone would barely get 2 hours sot and would freeze apps after about an hour of use.
>Why do all Android phones lag?
>I've had the entire note line
Look for another similarity between your phones.
Its not the OS. Its Samsung.
Dont blame Android because you bought Samshit products.
>bought Note 3 2-3 years ago
>Never had lag issues
Though I'm not an autist and I know how to maintain my phone. Plus there are custom roms and kernels as well.
Though I'm looking forward to upgrading to my Nexus 6P in March
Why do I only see iPhone user going constantly into multitasking wishing their finger up the screen like an idiot to close apps every 5 minutes. Same with searching for fucking a fucking socket to charge their phone.
I never close any app in multitasking on my note 4 nor do I need to plug in chargers all the time like a faggot docking dick to Ass with their apple using friends. But what should I expect from an apple user ?
For you guys who say its Samsung, its not. I've used other phones as well like the htc one x and the original xperia Z. Also I've installed cm, miui and Dr ketan and they all eventually lagged.
Now you're warranty is void and you've lost all the Samsung features you initially bought your phone for. Congratulations, you've played yourself.
Read the above.
But iPhones are known to not lag. So I have reason to believe you're lying.
But fuck all that. Go look where I told you to look. Android Authority. Your own fucking camp. Go look nigga!
>proof that all android phones lag
That's a lofty claim that OP probably should not have made because it can't really be proven, not in whole.
The fact of the matter, and the reason that OP even made this thread, is that android phones do have lag. It's almost become a meme for the device but it is born of thruth; I have tried several phones running android over a few years and each one had noticeable lag under circumstances which didn't seem to warrent it.
Switching between apps, closing an app, opening an app, using an app and I have even experienced it while swiping the screen of one phone to unlock it.
I've experienced this on models both expensive and cheap.
I'm using an Xperia Z3 right now and I experience lag daily.
Truthfully, I'm not throwing anything substantial at you, other than my opinion. I have work now but if I remember to later, I'll come back, do some research and give you the results I find.
Of course, anyone else (including OP) could do that in the meantime.
>implying I use samshits warranty
My carrier covers my phone for everything for my phone unless I bricked it, even if I did brick it I can just smash my phone and warranty would cover that.
>fingerprint scanner is shit
>heartrate monitor is shit and gimmick
>hand gestures are shit and gimmick
>ir blaster works fine
>underclock CPU and turn on monochrome color for upsm
Any other feature i don't really need so I never bothered with it.
I know I am soon to order my Letv One Pro
When I got my note I installed google keyboard faster than a black man on fried chicken
Here's a country where people actually use iphones.
You're in denial.
It's the fastest most secure way to unlock. How is that a gimmick?
This is what all Android users say. But why don't I need to "take care" of an iPhone. Therefore it's superior.
That's like telling someone with an old el cheepo car that they don't take care of it because it always breaks down. How bout they just buy a car that works?
>it's the fastest most secure way to unlock. How is that a gimmick?
Because that was the focal point of the iPhone 5s and the Galaxy S 5. That was the thing that made them "different"
So how is the feature a gimmick.
Sorry mate the search was too broad.
a trick or device intended to attract attention, publicity, or business.
When a company focuses on a specific part of a device that makes it a gimmick, Jesus Christ.
Any car will break down if you dont change the oil when you should. Thats taking care of it.
Also My 4S froze all the time and I didnt even have it jailbroke. Even my ipad mini 2 lags.
>this shit still happens!
Because you are not capable of properly maintaining Android OS, get an iPhone.
>Why don't I need to do that on iPhone and whats the point of 3gb of ram?
Because the iphone was designed to be as simplistic as possible. The phone needs almost no interaction from a human to be maintained other than occasionally clearing pictures\music\movies\apps to free space. This is not for everyone. I would never want this in a phone. The last thing I would ever invest in is a peice of technology I just abuse with no emotional connection to. I enjoy knowing the inner workings of my devices. I enjoy maintaining them, I take pride in it. Fuck iphones\macs\ipads\iwatches and any other bullshit apple shits out.
Note 4 here. Previous iPhone 5 owner.
Honestly I miss the basic functionality of an iphone. Only with the note have I found constant crashing and sometimes extreme lagging between apps. I decided to add a custom Rom after being tired of the somewhat edited stock android. Even as a advertised fast Rom it ducks ass. Miserable with my phone.
But I heard ios8 only introduces new issues so I'm just led to believe everything sucks.
But the point is this car doesn't need oil changing.
Why do I need to maintain it though. That's retarded.
So you basically said iPhone was designed to be better. Because no one apart from you enjoys 'doing maintenance' on their phone.
>Brb closing apps
>Brb installing a new rom
>Brb waiting years for updates
>Brb buying a new phone
You're basically trash
True but they suck
A gimmick implies that it's a trick that doesn't work. Even in the example from the same dictionary it implies that.
So how is a fingerprint scanner a gimmick?
Had this for almost 2 years now. Stock ROM, unrooted, don't really do any maintenance, and it works just fine. Costs less than an iPhone, too. Webm related.
I used to have a Samsung S3 which eventually turned to shit. My dad currently has a Samsung something not flagship phone that is also shit. A friend of mine just had to replace his Samsung after it bricked itself.
Why do people buy Samsung phones again?
I've been using a 5X alongside my 6S since black Friday and I can confirm that Android does indeed still lag. My iPhone is buttery smooth and animations are 60fps while my nexus sometimes takes a few seconds to launch apps. Apps like Google Music and Chrome stutter and are chopp as fuck while navigating. For example, if I tap to open the menu in chrome the opening animation floors at like 5fps. Shits jank.
you still haven't addressed how it's a gimmick. Even by that definition it's not a gimmick, It's not a trick and it improves functionality, therefore it's not a gimmick.
Maybe if you used your brain you would be right ugly phaggot.
>hurr durr I used one android phone and it lagged so every android lags
My s5 doesn't lag at all, so does that mean that all android phones don't lag? Of course no.
Could you be lying?
910c, 5.1.1, non-american carrier. The phone is not at fault for carriers shoving everything they can into the rom. It's best to root and debloat. Even without root, you can do a lot to improve performance by undoing pointless shit carriers add that hog resources. Countless articles exist regarding the matter.
That's odd, my Note 3 didn't even have a hint of lag. Had it from release into about two months ago. Never had to return it or had any tech problems. I would still have that phone except it fell in concrete causing the oled display to break. Now I'm on an S6, I'd be surprised if the Note 3 we lagging now.
Of course it fucking lags. Google software is fucking shit, phone is filled with trash by default, user has shit permissions so the botnet controls everything for you, constant reconnections and connections attempts, constant scanning for wifi/3g signals, location updates, apps that secretly update even with automatic updates disabled(google chrome), apps that cant be disabled and reboot every 5 fucking minutes and general bloatware like g voice and g services
Root that shit or buy an iphone
Owner of a sony phone that's on 4.2 reporting in.
The battery drains over a week, but oh well...
I don't notice ANY lag, except it demanding games.
I have root access, have removed some bloatware and installed AdAway. I also run fstrim once in a while. That's everything. No kernels, no overclocks, no undervolts.
I've tried CM too.
It works unexpectedly smooth, but it is quite a drain on the battery. The camera quality goes down the shitter.
I'm not using any kernels because every single one has a very annoying problem with the date resetting. No custom launchers, either.
Well guys goodnight., I made two good bait threads today. This one and the console one and both made it to the top of g. Feelsgoodman.
Although they weren't bait in the sense that I was lying. All the points I brought up where valid
I just don't believe them.
>mfw my Galaxy S5 hasn't had a bit of lag in well over a year
You're just a dumbass, OP.
2/10 made me reply
