Unhappy anyone else getting terrible YouTube video playback lag? video comparison vs 3gs inside

3gs vs. Note 2 youtube video playback 1 - YouTube

3gs vs. Note 2 youtube video playback 2 - YouTube

3gs vs. Note 2 youtube video playback 3 - YouTube

3gs vs. Note 2 youtube video playback 4 - YouTube

3gs vs. Note 2 youtube video playback 5 - YouTube

These are side by side videos I watched on my 2+ year old 3gs iphone and my 2 week old Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

The Note 2 lags very badly, pausing multiple times throughout many videos.

It usually starts the video quicker, but due to buffering ends up finishing minutes AFTER the 3gs.

Is there something wrong with my phone?? I haven't heard too many complaints about this. Any advice?

Sorry in advance for the messed up orientation, I don't know how to fix it.

Ok, just checking. I know that sprints proxy has been shown in the past to cause a lot of buffering lag, and when rooted users stop using the proxy it goes away.

I'm not familiar enough with att to know if that's an issue

I think it's the youtube app itself. It's not the phone's fault.
