I think it's because of the non final software, the retail version will be smoother I guess.

0.5 seconds of what you call lag bothers you that much? On a demo phone? Did you know that's just transition effects that you can turn off yourself under developer options?
Oh wait you been skipping Samsung since the S1

Do you have a link to the video you're referring to?
12. tech2 (Posts: 1787; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
I've seen loads of video and all of them have said its super smooth. Not even the slightest hint of lag. Unless you can give us a proof I find it hard to believe you.

Define lag? Making it unusable that you just given up on your phone? or just short lags that doesn't make a difference to your productivity, but it's just something to complain about Samsung?

unstable lags.. restarts..lags during navigate through menu and homescreens.. yes those r something complainabout samsung devices other departments such as camera storage options and special apps are good.

what is 'unstable' lag? Never heard of stable/unstable lag. How can a 'lag' be stable or unstable??
restarts -- restart is not same as lag.
decide first what is your problem with samsung phones, then type.

i used to have an S2, to this day its still an extremely smooth phone, obviously not smooth compared to more modern phones, but smooth for 2011.

They all asked for a link as a proof, and you failed to provide one. Clearly you never owned a S2 and neither did your sister own an S3. I've had the S4, and now I have the Note 3 and I am yet to face any lag. Again show us 1 damn video where the S5 stutters, just one!!

I've had the S1, S2, S3, S4, and the Note 2. The S1 (mine was a certified preowned) was crap. Constant rebooting, weak battery, slow, and laggy. I doubt it was like that when they first released it. The S2 was ok for me (often lagged) and was weak on battery, the S3 was solid with occassional hiccups, the Note 2 was and still is very solid with minimal-no lag, and the S4 I used had no lag either. It's unfortunate that you had bad experience with Samsung. For me, everything has been solid since the S3.

it takes 'seconds' to enter contact.

It's ridiculous to compare android and ios cuz there are many differences about the ability of multitasking and number of background apps

Are you really expecting maturity with a name like that ? A 10-year old can come up with a more mature name.
He/She/It is obviously trolling. No need to reply'em it just encourages them.

Man that Gear Fit is looking pretty damn nice.
