Default Problem with Samsung Galaxy s4

Hello everyone,

I'm having really devastating problem with my Samsung Galaxy s4, so I decided to write here as it seems as official Android forum.
This device that is supposed to be the phone that got it all, simply disappointed me. I expected the most and what I got is... eh...
I have TERRIBLE lags on my phone. When i say terrible I mean it. It is not the lag i saw on videos on youtube, my device literally stop working for certain time. For example I press on the button to open applications and widgets my phone stop working for around 20-30 seconds, I can't do anything but I can lock the phone, rise and lower volume...
When I'm going through my applications in the menu it lags when switching pages, it lags when I want to open notification bar, when I want to close something I have to wait 20 seconds or so, to load simple applications I have to wait 10-20 seconds and so on...
Sometime phone is not listening to me properly, when I'm trying to swipe screen to the right it swipe to left and conversely...
Sometimes it even lags when I'm writing message, if I press some letter I have to wait 5 seconds or so for it to be displayed and if I press some letter while device was frozen it displays all together with the letter I wrote at the first place.
And so on...

This is really annoying. And disappointing. I mean, I installed maybe 6-7 basic applications on the phone, I have around 50 pictures and I'm using around 1GB of ram. How comes that device that is running 1.9GHz quad core processor followed by 2GB of ram can lag that much using just basic things? I mean, It's impossible to have 2 applications opened without terrible lag and I'm having currently the best phone on the world? Isn't that confusing? With those performance I'm supposed to be able to do ANYTHING without lag,I mean this phone have better performance than lot of PC out there. On geekaphone.com it gives me result of 237 points wjile other devices have 500+.

I have already done advices how to make device less laggy, but it doesn't help in my case. I've done this: How to fix lag problems on the Samsung Galaxy S 4 | Ausdroid
Except the last step because I don't understand what he means. And I have to disable basic features to make it less laggy, and I paid it bunch of money. Really...

What to do, what to do? Does anyone have the similar problem? Is there ANY solution? This is killing me. I'm really ashamed tho show my device to other people, and I don't know what to say when they ask me why is it so slow...

I bought device 6 days ago, and I started to notice this tomorrow after I bought it and with each day it is getting worse. This is i9505 version.

Just to notice, I'm new Android user, it's my first Android phone.

Thanks in advance
