    Hey guys!!!

    Ok so I have put up a few posts about the Note so far. Just to clear the water, I do not own the Note, YET!!! Im deciding weather to take the leap or just stick with the GS3. I want the note more because of the beautiful screen and just the overall sexiness, but what really draws me into the GS3 is its fluidity and responsiveness. Its the best I have seen on any phone.

    Now I know the Note is a bit weaker in the processor area, but I have noticed that most people's notes can be a bit sluggish. Its something that I put a LOT of stock in, and if I can find a ROM that will give me the fluidity (Not really overall speed) and responsiveness that I can get with the S3. Is this a possibility or is it more hardware limitations?

    I also want to keep the stock touchwiz 4 (Or 5 if possible!!!) launcher if at all possible.

    Hi OP,

    I have tried quite a few roms for the Note and I can say they pretty much run all fairly smooth.
    I am currently back to stock ICS, unrooted and all. I wanted to see what kind of differences between cooked and stock. I find that my performance is pretty much similar. I never benchmarked my phone, I just go with how it feels when I'm using it
    i still get the occasional lag every once in awhile, but this is probably due to the "launcher" progs that I'm testing
    The SG3 is a nice phone, nice specs and fast...but if you really like the size of the Note, then maybe you should wait a bit for the Note2 - Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - Full phone specifications

    My friend, you are in luck! My note has un smoother than any device I've ever held in my hands thanks to a new rom/kernel. Over at xda a ledgendary developer has released his version of CM9 and it freakin rocks. Added with his OC kernel which overclocks to 1.94 (1.83 safely) and you'll never think about that SG whatever thingy. Trust me, I threw an SG3 theme on ther and installed beats audio and S-Voice, and i've never benchmarked higher. Let me know if you're interested and I'll link everything for ya.

    I love the note but ill admit it lags a bit on ics stock roms, at least for me. Not horribly but its no gs3. I don't overclock though. Smoothest for me so far is a cm10 rom by quincyatt over on xda. The occasional reboot but runs great. There are also some nice snote alternatives on the play store.

    Edit: wow,just realized how old this thread is lol
