    no! you people are! just know my hd2 from 2009 came with 512 Mb of ram! this is 2014! I don't expect anything that couldn't run on my hd2 to be able to run in this post snapdragon era.
    But my Lumia isn't from 2009.
    It's from 2013. ..
    1.5 year old.

    Didn't MS said they optimized wp8.1 for512mb ram.

    Can you tell me exactly what is in difference between snapdragon s4 MSM 8227 and Snapdragon 400?

    Because only thing I see as difference is core.( dual core and quad core)..

    Just because it's optimized for 512 devices doesn't mean you can treat it like a 1 gig handset. I've owned 520s and 620s, you have to stay on top of your open apps. Forget about running more than 4 or 5 apps at the same time. Even a GS3 with 2 gigs of RAM will start plowing if you push it with graphic-intensive chores. You purchased a low-end device - don't expect a Cadillac if you paid for a Chevy.

    Sorry but I don't use the way you mentioned.
    I know how to use wp. You don't need to educate me.
    I am not talking about anything big
    But when simply playing music takes 22-25 seconds then I don't think I am saying anything wrong about lag.

    I never said you didn't know how to use WP but I think you have expectations beyond your device's capabilities. Video and audio are resource hogs and you should have known better. Thus endeth the lesson.

    Lol!
    I never thought you think so low for wp
    Tell me an smartphone phone OS which takes 22-25 seconds to play music on 512MB RAM devices

    no I don't think so. Audio and video is one of the things that doesn't need that much of memory or cpu/gpu power. As long as you don't take 4k or 1080p video you are good to go. The image is already rendered and has only got to be displayed. Audio is the same thing. As long as the device isn't rendering a lot of polygons or rendering really high res textures and bitmaps 512mb should be enough

    It seems to be a hit or miss issue, but my Start Screen lags like crazy on my 1020 with DP. Tiles are all blank as you scroll. I'm hoping final the Cyan update will fix it.
    My 1020 lags like crazy too. I have a 521 and notice no difference in the lag between the two. The start screen tiles are the worst culprit - second only to the gesture keyboard.

    It's funny - the dell venue pro running 7.8 still runs smoothe as butter

    i think you are alone :P. cause for me wp8.1 is also lag free and use onemusic instead of xbm for better experience. for lockscreen - it is in beta , as i think the public version will use less ram and lag free.
    are you on DP? I think perhaps he's using the official release.

    at some point during the installation process, it asks you whether you want to start fresh or restore a backup. you choose start fresh. those aren't the words exactly. and if you're not sure after you install the update you do a factory reset in "settings >about > where it says reset your phone
    So, everytime you upgrade your phone, you really need to do hard reset? Why?

    make sure you start fresh by not restoring.

    Why apps like instagram, facebook and messenger are slow on Wp compared to android and IOS? Developer's fault or it's just microsoft's API?

    I think that there is some runaway code in 8.1 that needs to be optimized. I wonder how this got past QC, but hopefully an update soon can fix this.

    Could be a little bit of both. But, they say blessings can be curses too. By Android having an open source code, developers all over the world are able to make it better/faster. It would be cool to have a program for devs to help with the software so that swipe/tap bugs and lags/resuming would get better.

    Now I'm afraid to update.

    First, I do not get the Music+Videos now it's laggier?

    Can someone please tell me if this lags with the 1520? What about the 920 as I will give the phone to my mom and would rather stay with Dev Preview if it lags like hell...
