    Exactly.
    Even worse on my L620.
    That's what I am talking about.
    I pinned some webpages on my start screen. Those go black while scrolling.
    If you have a L620, that does mean you have a DP version of 8.1 right? Developer preview versions are the preview versions of the OS which MAY or MAY NOT have bugs, issues, crashes and what not. Sorry to say this, i think you have to wait till your phone picks up the official release. I have a L630 DS. I believe except processor, technically your phone has better specs. But mine is butter smooth in the inbuilt 8.1 Cyan version.

    Doesn't matter. 8.0 was fine with the same set of tiles. The minute I upgraded to 8.1 DP, lag. I'm really hoping the Cyan update fixes this. Or at the very least, update one this fall.
    I asked it because since I've grouped the apps and pinned the tiles on my start screen it lags....and when I remove some of them is back to normal.... I've like 100 tiles on my start screen

    No doubt Windows Phone 8 was great OS.

    The only good recent app which MS launched is 'FILES". Which they forgotten after launch.(Seriously no updates in 2-3 months)
    You said it is a Good recent app, then what update you want for that???!!!!

    DP is NOT Beta. However, it is possible it has bugs. But don't pass it off as a Beta build. That's not the case.

    I experienced lag on my 620 on 8.1. The only way to fix it is to do a hard reset. The start screen 'lag' is not actually lag is actually just the tiles redrawing because the way the tiles are displayed are different on 8.1 due to new styles like greying out when there is no SD card or colours filling up when restoring a back up. I'm sure people with a 1520 or 930 don't experience this. Just do a hard reset and everything will be fine.

    I have a 1520 on 8.1 dev preview and this happens occasionally when I scroll really fast. The graphics on the tiles don't appear for less than a second so it's not too big of a problem.

    When using a lot of RAM on my Surface Pro from programs like AutoDesk inventor 2014, the icons on my taskbar don't appear or flash for a few seconds - I think this start screen issue is a something similar to that.

    People complaining about lag. Most of you are using 2 years old hardware.

    I've used the 930, it's very very fluid. Now, can my 920 run Windows phone 8.1 like the 930? Of course not!

    My next phone is a 930 will have it within the next 10 days.

    I think you guys need to calm down, especially if you're on a low end phone (720 or lower) phone with the dev preview. It's not even optimized yet.

    Because it's good not best.

    Speed still need to be improved and some more features should be added.

    Fyi, start screen lag happens on WP8 on my Lumia 525 too which even has 1GB RAM often when the internal storage is filled completely with cache. Creating space in internal storage often solves the problem.
    I think it's unfair to call WP laggy when it is a more stable OS than android at least.

    People just expect WP8/8.1 to be as fluid as WP7/7.5 on low end devices. Its just not.

    I have a 920 and did find a few slow downs on DP, I remember a time Android ran OK on modest hardware, then things got fancy, I see this happening now on WP, 8.1 is gonna run $hit on these cheap 512mb phones, the thing about WP was it was buttery smooth on low spec hardware, this is gonna change now. Ever use one of those cheap low spec android phones running ICS or Jellybean? its painful, this is whats gonna happen WP

    Guess what iOS 7 lags on older iPads and iPhones. There is a reason Apple is so hell-bent on getting people to upgrade to the newest hardware - because they can't seem to make iOS run more efficiently, thus necessitating a huge new spend. Why does Apple not get hell for this?
