I've also heard that the V20 is water resistance. As in splash proof to a certain degree; not sure of the rating. I have yet to confirm this but it would definitely steer me away with the note. I've seen lag on the note7 firsthand. I've seen poor ram management with apps having to reload. Not sure if it's the case with every unit but it's non existent in the exynos variant. Also heard rumours there will be no more snapdragon variants on the S8 lineup.
I have a soft spot for LG's smart settings and if everything falls through with the better dac and waterproofing, I might go that way. I just hope they don't **** up the display in their greatest multimedia consumption smartphone ever. The G5's is horrible. I don't know how my friend is fine with it. If not for the screen, I'd have a g5 right now. It's current $400 brand new unlocked price beats everything out there.
Just received some promising batt stats with a consumer based lg v20 which dropped in Seoul yesterday. It's getting about four to four and a half hours of screen on time. Not sure how much that translate to camera on time and for the quad dac, which I also found out is two-ch so nit sure how the system works as of yet.
Lol. My 7plus on eBay is already at $1100. People are ****ing crazy for these things; it's not even jet black. And they obviously don't care about that processors noise or how apple is choosing to not address it. Let me tell you how bad it is- I recorded something and the noise is bleeding into the video in quiet scenarios. It's a great phone and all but it's not worth $800, let alone $1100.
So the updates are rolling in on the V20 if anyone is interested. I'd have assumed a barrage of yt videos from Korea where it has been released, but that does not seem to be the case.
Anyways. MKB reports that the earpiece will act as a second speaker and another video suggests you can have both wifi and cell service going at the same time.
Now here's what I've noticed between recent LG and Samsung devices- because of the amoled screens, Samsung has to pull back with ram management to save battery. This causes most programs to reload if you've passed it to the background and try to continue from where you left off. This can be taken as lag.
LG does not have this issue with the same exact components/soc/gpu. I'd be ok with a G4 if you don't need the newest gadget.

Hmm, thought AMOLED was better for battery life since black uses no power. My Note didnt have lag when I first got it. First 2 years really. Has only started lagging a bunch in the last year. Like it knew it was only supposed to be good for 2 years and now is designed to make me want to get a new one.
So, how do I get 7.0 without rooting?
Do you have your transitional animations turned off from Model Build Number in your options? You have to tap it 7 times and it will give you the option to do so. This will reduce your lag by tons. Also, why don't you just install nova launcher? That version of Samsung touchwiz ux is overloaded with crappy laggy functions.

If all this doesn't work,then trust me, a newer version of android won't help with anything other than battery gains. I'd look into a new device. Honestly, if I wasn't nitpicking screen color accuracy and audio dads, I'd have a LG G5 in my hand right now. Zero lag with all the latest specs/socgpu for $409 new/unlocked.
And it's simple apps sometimes too. Like messenger. Sometimes it takes a full 15 seconds, I know that is an eternity right, just to load after clicking icon. Also, while typing it lags for after few seconds then fills in words often many double words.

Power5, I just went through the specs and there should be no reason a smap800 w. 3gigs of ram should act the way your phone is. That soc can handle marsmallow update with no issues. How's your batt? Does it drain fast or is it very old?
Try using your phone while on charging jack to see if it exhibits' the same issues.
