This could resolve the Lag on your Start Screen.

okey. after updating my lumia 920 with the GDR1 update I was excited to try the live folders (which I really adore). however...

I noticed Lag... It was not just a subtle and forgettable Lag. It kinda upset me since I really want to use the live folders.

So here are some tips that lessen or resolve the Stuttering of MY start screen.

1. Instead of using a background image, you can use the accent color(which I know you won't since it is not cool and boring. lol) It would really resolve the stuttering issue..

...... OR. try this. ⚠

2. since I don't want to follow the first tip I then tried to remove all my starts screen shortcuts/live tiles...

rearrange, added live folder and etc.
voila.. Lag free!

again.. it might work or not for your phone, just try it.

If it wont work Im sorry. I just want to share what I have tried and what worked for my unit.

The lag disappeared on my 520 after the Cyan update. The firmware really made the difference.
