    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.:thinking:

    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.
