    I have been facing some lags or when I exit any app live tiles going blank. No difference whether apps are on SD card or phone.

    Which 8.1? 8.1/update 1 dev preview or Lumia cyan. Developers preview has some problems, so you could switch to cyan. Wp7.8 was faster than 7.5, 8 was faster than 7.8, 8.1(cyan) is faster than 8. If you have cyan, then try a soft reset if it could fix it.

    I'm using cyan. Not PFD. Lags I face occasionally.. But live tiles going blank is always.

    I find there is occasional stutter on my 920 with 8.1 compared to 8. It is bearable though.

    i agree wp8 was a bit smoother but on the whole WP8.1 with cyan has brought alot of improvements to the platform and there are more pros than cons
    i wish the camera performance was like Portico though,it is certainly better than before though
    as for resuming screen and load times,i dont understand why whatsapp is slow to adapt than even hike and make a wp8.1 update
    i hate hike messenger because they spam your contacts etc alot but they have done a better job than whatsapp on every platform including WP8.1
    there are many such apps like viber which still need a proper update for wp8.1 support and there arent any excuses for this delay

    I've seen that in many places performance has taken a hit in Windows Phone 8.1, but I would expect that because Microsoft didn't introduce any new performance improvements with the loads of the new features.

    But it's not a huge issue, I would easily take the newer functionality over the faster Windows Phone 8.

    thats not true,windows phone 8.1 is still very smooth,its just that wp8 was a bit smoother sometimes
    microsoft did revamp the OS kernel in WP8.1 to improve performance especially battery,ram and camera

    sadly these issues are because the apps arent properly optimised/updated for WP8.1
    especially whatsapp
    if you want an example of an app which runs with near zero resuming screens- try opera mini beta,one of the few apps compiled around wp8.1 ,a bit buggy yes but it proves that proper optimisation can get rid of "resuming" screen,even MS needs to learn from this to improve IE
