    Hi, recently had an AT&T update. Ever since, phone doesn't seem as responsive. For example, swiping from page to page, clicking on an app to open, etc. It seems to hesitate before engaging in the action selected. Is this coincidental to the update or could it be the battery is aging since it's probably 4 years old. The battery is holding it's charge and doesn't require charging except every other day. I don't want to spend $39 on a new battery if it's the daggone update! Please advise. Thanks.

    Try clearing the cache partition from the recovery menu, if that doesn't help you can try backing up your data and doing a factory reset. Both of these actions can be helpful after an update if the phone isn't performing right.

    Try to update the Google play services and the Google play store..most of the times when there's a mayor hold up or instability on the Samsungs is related to that..

    This forum has changed since I was last here and I can't find the help references/posts like before. Therefore, I don't know how to get to the recovery menu. All I find is where to do do a factory reset. Thank you.
