Is anyone else's phone lagging like A LOT?????!!!!! Idk what to do... is it b/c I have almost 4 GB of memory left???
In a word: yes. Just got the phone new a week ago, upgraded to 4.1.2 & rooted, but have not unlocked the bootloader yet. Still using stock launcher. Lag is occurring within apps as well as on the home screens -- really weird for a phone that has only been running for this short a period of time.
UPDATE: I went into stock recovery & cleared cache partition & things are all better, try it!

Turn the phone off.
Hold power + volume up + volume down until you see a black screen with white letters.
Use volume down to scroll to recovery
Press volume up
At the dead android hold volume down and tap volume up
Scroll with volume and select with power.

I found this little gem:
It's a great app that always makes my phone run more smoothly. You do need to be rooted, but otherwise it's as simple as pressing a button. No restart needed.
It's essentially fstrim. Which is a Linux application used to trim the cache of the OS. Android does this on its own, but the processor cache doesn't get trimmed automatically. This app trims everything though making everything run more smoothly. I'm on the free version, but the paid version can automatically schedule trimming. I'd say you wouldn't need to do it more than once a day at most, but it seems to work instantly for me when I do use it.
Mine isn't laggy as of now. Running Nova Prime Launcher. Certainly not laggy when making phone calls. Have you tried a different launcher, Jimmy? Have you disabled all the bloat apps that you can?
There are all kinds of reasons for a phone to lag.
1. too many active widgets
2. too many installations and on installations of software that left junk behind
3. antivirus software that isn't keeping you informed of when it's scanning in the background
4. frequent checking of mail or weather updates
5. low disk space
6. and more.
Solutions, root and ROM, or factory data reset. However, nothing here will help an old phone. It's the same thing that's going to happen at some point with an old computer. Eventually you'll need to replace it.
