I'm an Android fan, but I have to admit that IOS and WP8 are better than Android in term of smoothness, the "lag" is more obvious in mid/low end devices but rarely in high end devices.
Android OEMs keep pushing their devices with higher spec is the biggest proof on this. The "lag" is actually caused by something about the memory management of Android, which is very very hard to solve it but can only be optimized currently.
Another reason that caused the "lag" is because Android is way more "heavier" than WP and IOS, since Android is very customizable ,capable (widgets,multitasking and etc) and compatible with various hardware and software features. Thus, it is more hardware intensive than the others. And in fact, this is the main reason why many ppl like me have chosen Android because of it's customization and capabilities.
Perhaps, everything come with a price/tradeoff, as nothing is perfect in the world...
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2013I will believe it when i see itWe all know your s4 dont lag so stop being an apple fan boy and contaminating user real opinions.
S4 does lags.. all of my frnds have samsung smartphones s3 s4 as this smaryphones are very popular and they get very good resale at time of sellin so people in india prefer samsung or ipbone. But recently i got lg optimus g the reason to buy this smartphone was its display and camera they are real good and main thing i noticed it never lags UI is awesome.. recently my frnd bought an s4 and his onli compliant is tht its lags too much and same review was of my friend who is Usin s3 and they both have very positive review abt my lg optimus g #fast #beautiful #Ui but at last the samsung has the huge market share so ppl prefer samsung over any other brand. #popular #resale #many #option #fast #updates #better #customber #service #india :)
Samsung strives for the best, they dont stop for nothing. Every product they release is 100% better than the pevious, apple is far far behind now, lg and htc are close. Samsung users should be proud the company they use is always on the rise and doesnt take your money for granted. Innovation at its best. Good for you samsung.
kur, 19 Jul 2013how many cores need to put in android phone to make in run smoothly???? Enough to make you jealous. Success
kur, 19 Jul 2013how many cores need to put in android phone to make in run smoothly???? Probably an iphone or windows phone user. he hates to see his phone is longer in the golden age and needs to vent his anger at samsung. My GS4 doesn't lag one bit and i am proud to say i've invested 650 euros on it.
Aww man! This is crazy... Samsung putting a million different processors into their phones. I wonder how the Enchanced Exynos 5 will stack up to the S800 though!
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2013I also have to laugh at the comments about Android lag. I've owned an S3 and I never, ever on... moreI have seen my friends sgs III, and whenever he scrolls through photos - very big lag!! Don't lie! iPhone 4S (forget iPhone 5 - different level) does not lag.. How come all new androids still lag?
I assume it's the new 16nm technology
If it's true I'd be glad ^^
bruce.w, 19 Jul 2013" they are devices of reality full of issues and inconsistancies same as any other techno... morethats so wrong C++ and C are not better than java i am a programmer btw although a beginner tbh because my field is internet & E-security most of the new and practical devices are using java from ur pc to the ATM to the electronic doors ....etc android works great for me in my htc one no or minimum lag that cannot be noticed on a day to day usage i use wp8 too by the way i like it as well i am not saying that C++ is bad but its not more practical than java

You need to be a bit more informed about what they do share and what they can and can't talk about.
I also have to laugh at the comments about Android lag. I've owned an S3 and I never, ever once had problems with lag. Now I will say that I've seen both an LG Prada with Android 2.3 lag and the original iphone lag. However both phones had a large number of applications that were resident in memory and if you killed the background apps and rebooted they both worked fine.
I want to stress that most of the apps running while the phone's were running slowly were 3rd party downloaded from each OS' respective store. Out of the box both phones ran absolutely fine.
Have a Note 2, along with my ace and I must say it performed above my expectations, Minimum lag and the multitasking is a breeze...so for me I dont feel like i need an upgrade, only i wish the camera was better and the built quality aint so confidence inspiring. Hope it survives some drops lol.
