    Some of you are reporting a considerable amount of lag on your Note 4 after rooting it and installing and using Xposed Framework. DroidForums member "rhcp011235" has put together a quick guide to eliminate this lag that you may be experiencing. You will need to download some sort of build.prop editor or have some adb know how to complete the first step. The rest of the steps are pretty simple. Just deinstall Xposed, open app manager find health services and clear data/cache, open app manager again find SHealth and clear data/cache, the reinstall xposed and reboot. This should fix your lag problem. Head to the original thread for the full tutorial.

    Hopefully this is isolated but good job to the dev.

    Is this because of root? If not then it's going to be a huge disappointment moving to a Snapdragon.

    I have yet to hear about any lag on this device....until this thread.... and it seems to be confined a single app (S Health) I wouldn't be too concerned. SHealth is a waste on the S5 imo. Skimble is a much better fitness tracking app.

    Yeah, just seems like a byproduct of rooting. No biggie. But good someone's looking out for those who still root.

    on the move..

    Must definitely be an only after rooting issue. Mine's stock and zippy as can be. No issues here. Best of luck to those that like to root devices. I'm sure the issue will be further solved as work is done developing ROMs and etc as this device is out longer.

    Ah good. I'm already hesitant enough about finally switching over to Snapdragon. Looks like I will revisit this thread in a month once I root.

    I want to call bull as rooting in theory does not effect the software side of the device unless you modify something. I am rooted but am running stock software and have yet to notice any difference.

    But I am then reminded this is samsung devices and Xposed framework mods could be the culprit and I must digress.

    I mean no disrespect to anyone, but if you read the first sentence you would see "Some of you are reporting a considerable amount of lag on your Note 4 after rooting it and installing and using Xposed Framework.". So it looks like Xposed is not playing well with parts of S-health.

    I am very interested in keeping up with the thread and others like it. I had the Note 2 previously and loved the size and pen. However, the UI and the lag from the overbearing and poorly optimized UI drove me nuts and I switched to the G2. I am thinking about try the Note 4 since they scaled back the UI and it sounds like its more optimized. I just can't decide between it and the Nexus 6.

    BTW has anyone seen someone use the Note Edge with their RIGHT hand. all of the videos and reviews I have seen show people using it with their left hand (even though they are right handed). I am just wondering how many button presses would be caused by the webbing on your hand.

    I don't have the link handy, but I read a thorough review of the edge yesterday. I believe it was on the verge. He said he didn't experience accidental presses on the edge screen, if I remember correctly.

    Found it. From the article: " You can put the Note Edge on a table without it rocking, you can hold it in your hand without accidentally triggering the touchscreen, and you can slip it into a pocket without difficulty."

    I am currently using the Note 4 as my daily driver and have experienced ZERO lag. This appears to be an issue only after rooting and using the Xposed Framework
