    Pulling down the top of the screen to bring up the notification centre has an animation that seems laggy. Actually, there is no lag, but the way the animation is currently, that's what it looks like. I compared it to Android and iPhone and it just doesn't look smooth with the 3-step animation.

    Do you feel the same? Should the pull-down be a single animation?

    Same feeling..but I think it's a Lag problem...because sometimes (like now) is smooth as silk

    No issues with the animations as well? Nothing jarring? Like I said, it is not actually lag, and you probably have to really have a keen eye to observe it.

    Yes, I have experienced this, it's when there is more than a certain threshold of notifications. It's not part of the 2 stages of the notification centre either, it only stops/lags when there is more than the threshold there. You won't get this stutter/lag till then.

    I've sent a few diagnostics reports using their diagnostics application, so hopefully when it is released to the general public they may have addressed some of these things.

    I don't notice any lags on my 520. However, I do find the "sweet spot" for dragging down is too small. Wish they could implement a mechanical way of doing it. Like, two quick taps (up or down) on the volume rocker.

    Anyway, as I said, no issues here on my lowly 520.

    It's smooth till there is a certain threshold of Notifications. It could be an application issue, Skype seems to cause this the most.

    there is a small lag when there are many notifications. Because of the smotthness of the OS this is annoying. MS should fix it

    May I ask have you allowed notifications to fill up? What applications do you have issuing notifications to the notification centre?

    This isn't something that happens with just a few notifications. So try letting it fill up, and then get back to me. If you still don't experience, that's good, I'm only verifying that the OP's problem isn't something only he is suffering from, that's all.

    To clarify "fill up" isn't just 5-6, it's more than that.

    if that is your biggest problem...than...you're lucky...LOL...it ain't a problem, i think this is your 'problem'

    it's specially made that way...if you want, it's a 2-way step , to have access to settings,also viewing battery percentage, date,and 'toggles' without dragging it all the way down...if you don't want that...try swiping fast from up to down and if it lags...i'll order you 20 pizza's...but only if you tell me your adress...aaaaaa.....and pin card number...just joking(just at the end of the post...not with the 'problem')

    Where did I say that was my biggest problem? And no it's not this two step, I've said it before. If it were it wouldn't be smooth till a certain number was met. So your theory is incorrect.

    My theory is that at the point of the two-step - which I knew about on day one - is where WP8.1 loads the current notifications to show on the notification centre. Once this exceeds an optimized amount of notifications this lag/stutter occurs.

    NOTE: I'm not the OP

    Facebook, Hotmail, Market, Data Sense, Phone, Whatsapp and Wi-Fi. I already have a bunch of notifications (more than 20 i think) and still that, no lag at all.

    Thanks, I'll post a video showing the lag/stutter. It's looking likely an issue with the Notification Centre, and Skype given the details you've told me.

    Here is a small video of it. Admittedly it's low quality, and this is only showing minor lag, it gets worst as more appear. I can post the more severe lag later, but I'm busy using the phone a lot at the moment.

    I've experienced this also, when I had were a lot notifications. Hopefully this is one of the bugs that MS addresses before official release of 8.1.

    Will this issue be fixed or not? When I have around 80+ Whatsapp messages for example, the notification centre is SUPER LAGGY.

    Also, the underlining animation itself doesn't look fluid, so would love them to streamline it (my cousin's dual core Android phone has a smoother notification centre pull down animation!).

    its not lag, the animation has 3 steps really, but its only one when there are no notifications at all, but when you got a lot of them they seem to pause the drop down for a second
