How to fix that annoying SwiftKey lag on Galaxy S6 and Note 4 (root req'd)
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 14, 2015, 3:57 AM
That delay is due to forceclosing and redraw of the stock keyboard that for some reason is connected to Samsung's much maligned SPCM service that also has been blamed for the overly aggressive RAM management on its recent Android phones.
In any case, you can get rid of the delay in the SwiftKey keyboard draw on your Samsung Galaxy S6 (also shown working on the Note 4, and perhaps others with the latest update). Here's what you need to do:
2. Open your build.prop file, and replace the line:
3. The SPCM servce culprit should be disabled now, and your keyboard lag should be cured, along with other nasty RAM management surprises the latest Samsung TouchWiz edition.

Lol what are you saying... build.prop info is loaded at boot at every boot... if I change something in the build.prop and reboot, the changes will activate as soon as I reboot my phone. I Should know since I have an S6 and have been modifying DHA in the build.prop these last few days

No. Because even with root, you've still got a locked bootloader, which means only TouchWIZ based roms. Regardless, on the Note 4, no TW means no S-Pen, which means no deal. Besides, CM based roms are usually super buggy with far fewer features.

I use the pen all the time. And despite liking more the Edge's design, I would buy the Note 6 if the next Edge comes out next year still without a pen. It's extremely useful and it keeps me from buying other brands (besides Samsung's amazing screens).

If you do what they said just remember thats No apps will be closed anymore and keep running in background.. So unless its a note 5 or edge s6+ then your battery life will become pretty crappy as its will lower it a lots because of all those app running in background. Still you will have the fastest possible phone!

Actually the 1st discovery of this switch was on Sept 25. No one cared about it for 20 days and suddenly it became a god sent? It seems to be a dirty trick that Samsung wants everyone to stick with its keyboard
