    I have 32 tiles.
    And 12 are "live".
    But whenever I get a lot of time in an app appears when returning back to the screen.
    Apparently, the WP 8.1 "kills" to the Action Center and Start screen (occasionally reloads the icons above and the star screen) to give more memory to the app.

    But my biggest problems are the animations that do not look as fluid in 8.0 or other systems.
    Besides the Action Center kinda gets stuck to bring down. Always.
    Well, all the new apps that are upgradeable went bad.
    An application such as Calendar, should not even have time to show the Splash Screen. The Xbox Music, Video and Games (Why are done in Silverlight 8.0 yet?) Are time consuming to open, and buggy.
    Another bug I noticed that Microsoft has not solved until today, I've seen videos of up to WPCentral. It makes a noise when it backward or forward some video.

    Not complained yet because the hope Cyan with optimized firmware. But if it continues, it becomes difficult.

    But still, I am calm because I remember how GDR1 was very buggy (only the camera was good), and the GDR2 and GDR3 was very stable.
    So, I hope GDR1 and GDR2 fix this things.

    PS: I have a Symbian Nokia 5800 with 128mb RAM, 434MHz processor, and open the Nokia Maps faster than Here, among other applications.
    PS: My phone is lumia 720.

    I haven't read all the comments on this thread but I just logged in to comment and agree on the title-" WP 8.1 is too much laggy". Now please don't tell me I am a fan boy or Haters gonna hate or some bull... I have never used any phone other than a Nokia since old Symbian days and tried Lumia 610, 920 and is currently using 1520, and this current one is so laggy after 8.1 Dev Prev and even Lumia cyan that I am thoroughly disappointed with Windows Phone. Trust me, I tried hard reset, soft reset, started clean without using previous backup data just to see that loading screen right after i punch in the unlock code most of the time.. FIFA 14 game was way better in WP8 but now i can't tolerate the lag in the game with Lumia Cyan( NOT Dev Prev).. I don't have any thoughts of using android or iPhone, all I say is as Windows Phone enthusiasts we all deserve much much better...

    is the 925 and 920 cheap? Older yes, but underpowered no. I know a lot about phones, OSes and hardware. Do I care about the frame rate of an animation? Not so much, but I do care about delay in input. And the start screen is worse than the store app. What does that say. For me it is an optimization problem. And yes I hard reset everytime. If the problem doesn't happen for you. Congratulations, but some of us have and we are not dumb
    If you have to tell us, without any inkling of a clue, then ...

    What do you know about OSs ? Did you do a clean install or simply download the update ?
    Do you reboot, after the OS reboot, to allow things to settle out ?

    I installed Lumia Cyan, after falling back to WinPhone 8.0, let the system restart to ' ... complete the installation ... ', then hard reset the phone, to flush any issues. Only then, do I sign in & let the backup restore. Short of re-installing everything, that's how you do a clean install. You take the time to do it right. My Lumia 1520 runs smooth as butter - I install apps, then, if I don't like / want them, I un-install. I am @ approx. 45% capacity on storage - 16Gb internal & 32Gb SDcard (UHS1) - after overhead approx. 44Gb available storage (using ~ 20Gb). Oh, and I shutdown ~ once a week, to flush memory. If an app is running away (it happens), I soft reset the device. Treat it like a computer (which it is) & it'll run efficiently.

    There is NO logical reason for the lag you mention, unless everyone is experiencing the same thing. You're not going to tell me my optimizations eliminated the lag, quite the opposite ...

    Once apps have been updated for 8.1 these problems will disappear. Do you remember ios 7 when it first released? There were problems like blue screens of death! Lag on old devices like the ipad 2 and iphone 4. Even when the iPhone 5S first released, a blue screen of death occured when using certain apps. Stop complaining and wait for everything to be optimised first.

    From my own experience, it's far from all the time the software being the issue.

    P.S. Sometimes you need to look in the mirror.

    P.P.S. 22 live tiles? You serious? I barely imagine how many apps are running in background.
    I reset my phone few hours ago.
    Now I have only total of 23 tiles including 1 live tile.
    And only 2 apps are allowed to run in background.

    Problem is still almost same.

    Anything else you want to say?

    And you are running 8.1 OS with 8.0 firmware.
    Oh how quickly we forget the warnings and App Studio about DP.

    You are not running Windows Phone 8.1. So, work on something else to complain about.

    We will wait, no problem about that. What about others, especially those who want to buy a new phone, they obviously gonna opt for overhyped and gimmicky droids or iPhone and they boast about the features which they don't even use while we just keep waiting for enough features and snappier OS and app updates to arrive. What an irony!!!

    My 1020 has pretty good specs and lags the same way he is talking about. I don't think it has anything to do with hardware. I think there is some bug in the software that causes occasional hangs when transitioning to other apps, etc. My home screen is completely random. Sometimes its just fine, other times it has a horrible delay and all my tiles are blank for several seconds. That would suggest a software issue.


    The truth, not fanboy ramblings. Resuming, loading screens are not figments of imagination but real on WP 8.1. Just because we like the OS doesn't mean we should be blind to its shortcomings.

    And I've done about 6 resets! All for different reasons.
    Incidentally, my File Picker (yes, the API) is buggy .... I'm waiting for Cyan to give a full reset. I always do that after a OTA update.

    when installing 8.1 did you guys do a clean install? or did you guys install on top of? my 1520 with 8.1 dp cleanly installed, is really smooth. when the official cyan firmware comes out ill do another clean install. smooth as butter! my 920 with a cleanly installed 8.1 dp is as smooth as butter! this is with no optimized software!. when cyan comes for that i'll cleanly install it and I'm sure it'll be smooth too.

    at some point the choices we sew reap. you can't have a 2 year old BUDGET PHONE, With a crappy sd card, 512 Mb ram, loaded with 50 plus live tiles all requesting fresh data, varying SDK builds, some software designed for 8, some rushed to be in the 8.1 release window, poorly coded apps, and no space left and expect a perfect lag free experience. that's not fair and it WONT ever work on any os anywhere. smh false advertising. you guys need to learn how to use your devices. and save some money and buy better phones! complaining about 8.1 on a BumAss phone that wasn't even designed for what your doing to it!

    you sound like those trolls who are mad when windows 8 doesn't run well on their bumAss pc they bought when XP came out. well of course it wont run well it wasn't designed for it! sorry for the rant, ill sit down now.
    Ok,
    I don't know when Class 10 memory card called crappy but it atleast fulfill WP requirement.
    and
    It's not 50 it was 22 and now its only 1.(After hard reset , So now 2 hard reset in this month)

    Are you seriously complaining about 512MB RAM. (Can you tell me how much RAM L630 and L530 have? and When WP become specs hungry OS?

    My 2 cents on this....In the past 2 weeks I have gone from a Lumia 800 running 7.8 to a 925 on 8.0 and my yesterday my 925 officially updated to 8.1/Cyan. For me, 8.1 is quicker across the board than 8.0 and waaay quicker than 7.8. To be fair my Lumia 800 was getting a bit tired but it still wasn't what I would call lagging. 8.1 streets ahead of it though.
    I guess the take home point is that performance will vary a bit across devices and of course our own personal expectations / tolerance of any lag

    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?
    iPhones and iPads get OS updates longer than most devices do. The iPhone 4 got updated to iOS 7 this year, and it was released in 2010! So tell me again how you came up with Apple being "hell bent" on getting people to upgrade?

    They knew the 5 series needed more for people to update, so they updated the phones with the most people?

    Some people complain for the sheer sake of complaining. DP is just that, a preview. There will be bugs, freezing, apps not working correctly, etc. The Ativ S Neo has documented issues that will only be fixed with OEM firmware updates. To my hazy recollection there have been 3 updates to DP to fix a lot of the bugs. That's unheard of for a beta yet we find ourselves reading complaints. Does anybody here own a 630 which runs on the proper 8.1? If not, kindly STFU until you have the release version.

    Laggiest phone OS? Really? I haven't noticed my 2 phones that are updated to 8.1 lagging in the least. They're just as fast, if not faster than when they were on 8.

    But we all know that Cyan isn't going to be everyone's "fix-all" and we know that the Developer Preview is the shipping version of WP 8.1...

    I think it's safe to whine.

    By the way, has anyone tried unpinning the Cortana tile from Start to fix lag? Unpinned it and restarted the phone, now I don't see the resuming dots going to Start, Calendar and a whole bunch of system apps

    Of course I do, I always have a lot to say, especially when people rage.

    And yes, you didn't get my point. My statement was not obviously related to you, but it's for you to decide either should it or not.

    The most obvious example is the PC issue. Every and any single time, people start the complain with the words "My computer is not working, help me please", or "I got a virus, Windows is s#!t" etc etc. When you want to fix an issue, the very first thing you need to tell is WHAT did change right before the 'lags' appeared. You act pretty much like an average user, who is completely unaware about how they should use the phone properly.

    P.S. Yes, sometimes there are software/hardware/firmware issues, I don't deny this. But when people are saying that their phones work flawlessly on 8.1, then it might be your local issue, not a global one...?

    Yes. The DP is just a ' preview' like you're saying, but still the conditions of Xbox games, music, and video are terrible on All the phones, ie, on the phones such as 630, 930 running cyan update itself.

    So to sum it up.- OS problem, firmware fault, app problem, Microsoft's fault.
    The end.

    Only Android deserves the Title of the "Laggiest OS" . WP is way faster. If someone purposely tries to get a phone to lag then what can I say. Try it. All machines will lag. Open several net pages several office documents and keep a few graphics intensive games running in the background and transfer and copy data. Even a top of the line pc will lag.

    Yha its not going to be a fix for all
    But it will bring the firmware upto the mark to run WP8.1 for every one
    And yeah, it is the shipping version, but those shipped have Lumia cyan okay?
    Lumia 630 works fluidly with cyan on board and it is almost the same as the phone used by OP.
    It's dangerous to whine
