Do samsung phones still lag after a while?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I used to own a Galaxy S5 back in the days but it was one of the worst phones i have ever owned. It started lagging after 3 months of use and i used it for about 2 years so i don't think i have had good a experience with samsung phones. I switched to ios after that and planning to switch back to the android. DO samsung phones still lag after sometime? Are they good for long term use?

i had an s8+ and yes it lagged like ass after sth like a year of use because of android's craptastic memory management

I ditched samsung after the S7 partly for that reason. No other phone brand I used did that.

The lags come from battery degradation.

Memory management doesn't suddenly get worse.

i replaced the battery, i blame memory management because samsung's implementation on the s8 was very basic(imo at least) at least compared to apple's wonders where i can go into an app i haven't interacted with in 2 days and its still open

Might depend on location too. Snapdragon chips might fare better than Exynos ones.

The notorious Touchwiz is gone

Slowdowns are usually due to flash storage occupied exceeding about 80% of total capacity

This affects all flash storage, regardless of phone model and brand

 

That said, Samsung flagships not made for the US or China, are given Exynos chipsets instead of Snapdragon. The Exynos ones are generally undesirable.

One strange exception is the S10 Lite, which does not have an Exynos model. Its remarkably good.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

The S10 lite was going head to head with the XR though at around the same price point. Without a Snap chip it would have lost even harder.

In Apple’s case, they’re probably using the absurdly fast NVME storage to mitigate the downside of using less memory to a degree. An app getting kicked from memory may not even be noticeable to the user if the app data (and saved state) can be retrieved within a split second.

Yup, phone storage, interfaces etc are fast nowadays. On my phone I copied a bunch of data at a steady 260MB/s from an external SSD to the internal storage... 

 

The S4 and S5 had terribly slow storage though. Still have my S4 but sold the S5 a month after getting it.
