I still think your problems all stem from your phone being in the hands of an (ID ten T) error.
Yeah, I get it, Im being called an Apple fan boy right?
I have been told numerous times that this phones specs are 2012, hence being outdated.
I just wish the phones screen touch response time was not so damn slow, I am NOT the only one saying this, even with the fastest of the new Android phones out there, it is said that the Android OS is slower than iOS.
Just out of curiosity, have you ever looked under developer options to see what your windows and transition animation settings are set to? Mine are 1x, the higher you go, the slower its responds. I am pretty sure 0.5 is the fastest setting and the phone really flies at that. Maybe yours got changed somehow? Just a thought....
Even before I was rooted I would NEVER call this phone slow, by any means. Does it VERY occasionally stutter a bit when switching screens? Surely. Nothing I would call "so damn slow".
My problem isn't your constant whining. My issue is your inability to do anything about it. Multiple people have given you suggestion after suggestion but you flat out obstinately refuse because "I shouldn't have to do anything to make it run better". It is beyond annoying. It took me MONTHS to convince you to try another launcher. MONTHS. And there are 50 other launchers out there. Some of us think trying different launchers is one of the hella cool things about Android, yet you flat out refused to try one. Have you even seen Buzz Launcher? I played with that for months before I bought NEXT Launcher.
And many of us recommended a Cache Cleaner to try and help you, yet you refuse because you simply SHOULDN'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO MAKE MY PHONE RUN BETTER. So you prefer to be miserable instead of trying to actually learn about the phone and try some other options.
Even when someone with a legit issue comes here that can be fixed your reply? "It's cuz your phone sucks, nothing you can do about it...":
Yea, that's helpful.
You need an iPhone. Please get an iPhone. You can get one on Ebay for $200.
Checked my animation settings they are all at 1x. Even with the April 4 update of maps the issue continues. When I uninstall the updates I have no problems with maps. I'm still at lost what could be causing this issue though

The only problem I've ever had with Google maps is on longer - 2+ hour trips - I've had it black out. More an annoyance than anything
Who's up for taking a collection?
Are you using the newest app update? The Play Store reviews are kind of like thus Forum....works good for some and not so good for others.

Yes, I'm am using the latest update. Here's an interesting side effect I had yesterday: On my long drive up to see my Mom, when maps blacked out, it took iHeartradio with it. On the way back home, it took out TuneIn. Go figure.
That's kind of odd. Makes me wonder if the issue is not specifically with the Maps app and maybe it's an incompatibility issue with Maps and other Play Store apps? Could be why it works good for some and not so good for others. I don't remember what issues I had, I just remember that it works better with the stock (no updates) version. I have a business trip coming up in May & plan on installing the newest update and see how it works. At least I know I can always uninstall the updates if the app goes all "wonky" on me. Thanks for the update.
Of course there's always WAZE which Google liked so much they paid a BILLION dollars for it.
Actually that's not a bad Trouble Shooting step. Install WAZE and try it out. No problems? I think that would =certainly narrow down the cause a bit.
i.e. NOT a GPS thing, specifically that app if Waze works ok.
IF I get an iPhone, it will be the iPhone6 or iPhone Air, whatever they conjure up for marketing.
When I say want an iPhone it is just due to wanting something fluid.
For the past 2 months now, most of the time when I hit the home button, the bottom row of icons take a second to appear, and then the clock widget finally appears. I checked my friends phone who has the MAXX and it does the SAME thing on his.
I asked him does he mind, and he said "Mind what?"
So I guess to each his own. I need something more reliable, without rooting, I dont mean to be annoying and the phone is better with some aspects than the iPhone, but overall, I think its the best bet for me and the "premium" money.
Last night, my friend came over, and I was going to show him a pic of something, and it was just laggy, took too long to load of the SD card, where as, I believe, this is the reason some newer phones have larger internal memory and no SD slot.
I also messed around with some Developer Settings that Hodor pointed out, didnt do anything (did get excited that it might enhance the performance)
I know this will make me seem old school, but I really miss my old flip RAZR, cool phone, compact, etc. Camera blew, but so does the one on this thing (and yes, I know, as far as content viewing, internet, etc the phone was just a phone really, just saying)
