    I have Lumia 520 , Windows phone 8 used used to be very fast no lag no blank tiles , than popped in windows phone 8.1 and that charm lost not completely but still Windows phone started to Lag, add to it low quality apps that never gets updates fixes. Will Windows 10 fix this ?? Will the UI, Sorted settings menu , efficient utilization of screen space will be fixed by Windows 10, Data settings, Equalizer for all devices , Better notification center , the interactive lock screen ever come to Windows 10 what will happen if windows 10 won't bring SUPER MAJOR CHANGES will windows phone survive and the way Microsoft focusing on other platforms are we windows phone fans , users will be treated fairly. ????

    My Lumia 521 also lags quite a bit and pages often freeze while web browsing. My mom's 635 does not lag however, and I will upgrade to something else soon.

    I recommend a hard reset to try to keep things running relatively smoothly.

    In handling my sister's 521 on 8.1, it doesn't seem to be running too badly.

    I am probably going to get a 635 as I have had good experiences with those.

    I have a 635. It's great, but it has 512Mb and 8GB of space. It's great, but storage/ram amount, not enough for me. (I'm a hardcore downloader xD)

    Have you tried an SD card?

    I have tried hard resets but the problem still remains.
    I am going to switch to AT&T and a better phone soon.

    I agree on the lag. My L920 lags quite a bit too now. A factory reset would be quite costly both in terms of apps and files, so I think I'll wait before migrating to an L930. Still it's troubling.

    8.1 introduced a lot of stutters and performance issues. My dad's 920 running the latest dp stutters like crazy in the games hub, files app, camera app, and the pictures gallery. My 820 in comparison is silky smooth.

    You can blame the new Runtime for this mess, actually. Even those 'loading' and 'resuming' screens that you see in Skype but not in Office.

    Since 8.1 for both PC and phone, Microsoft, while continuing to offer Silverlight, is ditching it mostly and adopting the WinRT model for universal apps. But there are a lot of things that Silverlight has that WinRT doesn't yet, such as 'running under the lockscreen'. You can see this behaviour when you lock your phone over a running app and then unlock it to see a resuming screen. They're working on converging these issues, from what I've read around the web, but I don't know when they'll come.

    In short, MS has a lot of bugs to iron out of the runtime but when they do you'll probably see the levels of smoothness that the Silverlight-heavy WP 7 and 8 had.

    Haven't had the blank tiles in a while. Not since I cleared my phone storage and moved everything that allowed me to, to SD card. No lag whatsoever. Lumia 625.

    When you use
    Music,Video and game hub then WP is the laggiest OS.

    In my opinion
    WP 8 was most fluid OS
    then WP8.1 is like a roller coaster
    and W10 .....let see how this OS perform

    I heard from many WP users that WP7 was even more fluid and faster than WP8.

    I have always had laginess and jitters (specially when swiping the notification center) with my test Lumia 520. I have no issues on my 928 or Icon so perhaps it's a low-end phone problem.

    Go to battery sense and only keep background services for things you REALLY need. Push notifications used for live tile information and IM notifications will still work. This improves the overall performance of my 520. But the 520 is still a low-end device and you should have seen that coming when you bought it. Don't expect WP 10 to run very smoothly on it.

    I solved the problem for my 521. I think it is a Dev Preview problem.
    I used the Nokia Recovery Tool and put the official, "regular" supported version on my phone and there is no more lag and no more resuming screens.
