    I am still using my tried and true Samsung S3. I love it and don't want to part with it just yet. But when I use it, the keyboard is lagging sometimes to the extent that I just don't even want to try it. Here is what I have done :

    1) unistalled and reinstalled Swiftkey &Gboard
    2) Tried to use the Samsung keyboard, still lagging
    3) rebooting, with and without the battery in it

    any ideas? I was wondering if I should
    1) Backup the phone and reset it to see if this would help?
    2) If I back it up, what should I use to keep all of my app/contacts etc?

    Do a soft reset of the phone by long pressing the off button until it vibrates and restarts.

    What does the Soft Reset do? Will I lose anything?

    It's basically the same thing as removing the battery. No you won't lose anything, but I doubt it will fix the problem either. But hey it's worth a try.
