Default How long to turn on screen from sleep?

After your screen has been off a min ir so, and you press the home button or side button to wake it up, does it take a second for the screen to come on, or is it instant? Mine takes about a second..

I'd say under a second, but a slightly noticeable delay. I figure it's normal.

Mine is right about exactly a second. Noticeable delay describes it well. I was just more used to an 'instand on' so I noticed it. Guess it has something to do with the processor in the phone. Thanks for the reply.

Same here. Weird. After the phone has set for over 10 seconds or so it takes about 1second to turn on.i am just trying to figure out if its normal or not. Already had to return my first one for a dead spot on the touch screen. If this one needs to go back, i'm coming home with something else.

What I am concerned with is if they are all like this or there is something wrong with mine. Seems it is normal for the device. My friend also got one so I will see how his is later on. I can live with it if it is normal.

Does reducing the 3 Animation settings under Settings/Developer Options improve matters?

Found some info from the guys at xda. Looks like the processor takes about 800ms to wake from a deep sleep. They said if it does not lag, it was not in a deep sleep ie. It was plugged in or you had an app running keeping the phkne ffrom deep sleeping.

Apparently just how the processor works. And it does not look like there will be a fix for it. Like I said, I can live with it as long as it is all of the phones, not just mine.

I have read that these options can be changed to make wake up time faster. To me its not an issue, it makes no difference either way.

Same here, but it is interesting to explore these features.

I really dont like animations, so love the options to turn them off!

Also update, I just tried my friends note 2 and it does the exact same thing. Not going to worry about it. Thanks all for the help.

For anyone having the lag delay, did you disable S-Voice from using the center button yet?
Once you do that you'll notice a very slight increase.

The center button is set to double tap and launch S-Voice.
The delay when you tap the center button ONE time is due to it waiting for the SECOND tap.
Disable S-Voice from using that button.

Moving to Issues reported on the Note 2....subject is the screen lag.

While I didn't mind having the double-tap function for S-Voice activation, I really do prefer a faster response on the Home Button. I also prefer using Google Now over S-Voice, so I've just created that shortcut on my NOVA scrolling dock on all of the 5 docks I have set up. Works perfectly for my needs.

Thanks again for posting this info!

No problemo...but I can only comment on how to do it for NOVA launcher:

1st, to set up the amount of Dock Pages
MENU>Nova Settings>Dock>Select 1-5

2nd, to set up having Google Now search button on every dock page
Long Press on open Homescreen area>Nova Actions>Voice Search

Simple as that...Now, just for giggles, I used Homesmack to check out TouchWiz (to see how to do it on there) and it is possible:

Long Press on Homescreen>Apps and Widgets>Long Press and hold Google>Drag down to dock

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like you can replace icons on TouchWiz.

I don't know if I can really call this an issue, but it's something that I've noticed and a little annoying on my Sprint Note 2.

This would only apply for those of you that power down and swap batteries (rather than charging the phone via microUSB).

I noticed that every time I go through my routine of swapping batteries, certain Calendar settings don't seem to stick.

1) Notification chosen for Samsung Calendar (aka S Planner) reverts back to the default sound
2) Notification pop-up that wakes up the phone (for events sync'd) from Samsung Calendar gets enabled, when I typically have that disabled.
3) Notifications for Google Calendar gets enabled, when I typically have it disabled.

I don't mind going in and changing these back every time I change batteries, but obviously I'd prefer not having to do that.

Has anybody else noticed this?

1-2 second lag here too. All animations are off. S- Voice home button disabled but when it was enabled it was exactly the same, no difference.

My only real gripe that I can't stand is the cracking sound coming from the top area of the back cover.

Other browsers that are out already display pages normally, so this part really isn't a big issue.
I think I solved my browser formating problem. While in the browser I chose 'Settings', then 'Accessibility'. I set the 'Scale text up and down' sliding scale to 104%. That did it.

When I first bought the phone I had set it to a higher % because my eyes are 67 years old. Thank the gods for the zoom feature.

Solved

Only keyboards are English, Spanish, and Korean





Somewhat solved

Folders in App Drawer won't sort correctly for Alphabetical grid





Unsolved

Change Notification Bar Power Widgets





Standard vibrations for notifications are really long





Stock browser loads websites incorrectly

Anybody had the phone go into a random soft reset using multi-tasking window? It doesn't bother me, but wondering if it's a common issue that anybody else has experienced. It's the only time my phone has ever randomly rebooted.
