    The point behind remarking that so many are not having similar issues is that it's likely something the OP has done, tweaked, installed, or otherwise misconfigured that is causing the issue, that it's not indigenous to the hardware. Doesn't mean we're not willing to help, just means the user needs to take a close look at what he/she has done that might be the root cause.

    It's not blasting, it's being honest.

    People who come for help don't usually create a thread with a sarcastic title like Lagaxy. They don't usually use sarcastic scare quotes like "upgraded" in their very first sentence.

    We are trying to help, but it's not very rewarding when someone seems more interested in flinging insults about the phone rather than actually find out what's going on with it.

    And it's not our job to convince someone to like a phone that they're apparently predisposed not to like. Life is too short -- if a phone doesn't float your boat then just get one that does!

    They are talking about a phone, not a personal attack on you! Does it matter if they are teasy about the phone - which they spent a lot of money on??

    chill out people.

    exactly but some users don't know/understand or care to know how phones work - they just simply expect them to. And thats fine.

    As the right royal 'we' do know more (because we do have an interest in tech/Android) look through the haze and draw out their issues...

    These things can be prone to quirks which may be phone/may be user/may be app related. They ain't all perfect!

    A helpful piece of advice is to get booting the device into safe mode. If the lag goes away, it's something on the device and a factory reset could clear it up. If not, the device could be a lemon.

    As for the thread, how about we concentrate on helping the op moving forward, alright ;)?

    Wow.... all this cause the person is having issues, with the phone....... If i came across like i was trying not to help, did'nt mean to ..I dont blame you for being upset for the phone not working to the standards its supposed to live up to. If you read my post iam trying to say i still love my iphone, I am just feeling my note 3 a lil bit more.. Try to return the phone if your still having trouble, then see if that helps....Hopefully you can find the phone that suits your needs....... Good luck.

    No lag at all on my Note 3. I would start with page one of any trouble shooting guide and restart and see what that does.

    Is anyone else having lag issues? Almost everything I do on my N3 lags behind by about a half a second or more. It doesn't matter if its the up swipe to look at the magazine app or texting or whatever...there is a lag. Anyone else experience this and is there a way to stop/fix it? I would like my N3 to be as fast as I thought it would be and as fast as I hear/read others are.

    Thanks in advance!

    Are there any preinstalled apps from Samsung that shouldn't be disabled then? Ones that are known to be needed by other processes?

    Show me the "perfect" phone and I'll buy it. Until then I'll use the "best for me" I can find.
    OP If you have done everything the above responders have proposed, you have a lemon, it happens. Return and try another. If the problem follows you, the N3 is not for you. Move on to what your used to.
    Mods you have to admit the OP started with sarcasm and attacks that is difficult to respond to. I believe it's called trolling.

    You know I just commented on another post. When you talk Nexus be careful many are built by Samsung (IE Nexus 4 if I'm not mistaken) I have had Note2, Note3 and a s4 mini and liked them all.

    Well folks, my two day old Note 3 is VERY laggy too. I just started a post tonight looking for help including other issues. Also just noticed my screen is dimming on its own then going back to full brightness again, I do not have any settings currently running that would cause this to happen.

    Thanks

    All that is with the screen is a setting which you can adjust. Under settings,display, auto adjust screen tone. I have found with the notes there is a learning curve. Now being slow has never been a issue with me as both my note 2 and note3 have been among the fastest phones I have ever used. Everyone is different I return it or get it replaced this is not ment to sound wise but slow is one thing this phone should not be:thinking:

    For those experiencing lag, have you gone into settings- developer options & unchecked animations? I don't have a Note 3 but most *fixes* are the same used for the Note 2 which I do have.

    Every android I've owned I had to reboot at least once a week to clear out everything and get it back up to speed. The note 3 is no exception. After a reboot it's lag free at least for a couple days.

    That's never been true of any of the four Android models I've owned, including the Note 3. Maybe you're running some problematic app or service.

    Hi Rich, Thanks for responding. My auto adjust screen tone is off, my brightness is turned all the way up, I'm watching it closely, if it does it again it's getting swapped out.

    Hi ScandaLex,
    All of my animations are turned off but one keeps turning itself back on………Very weird. If it keeps up today I am going to have it swapped out. I haven't even installed an app on my phone yet.
