BB10 still lags not quite smooth?
I have recently been noticing in most of the demo videos out there that BB10 still lags a bit somehow, it doesn't seem to be as smooth as the iPhone. Anyone noticed this too? Or is it just cause it's not on the final hardware? I really hope it wouldn't lag not even a bit while scrolling and everything. I mean just look at the iPhone how smooth it is and works.

Re: BB10 still lags not quite smooth?
Haven't really noticed this, apart from the BB10 isn't an iPhone so why would it behave the same?
If it does behave the same, then Apple no doubt, will be taking RIM to Court

I haven't seen much if any lag in the video demos. I do, however, experience some lag on my iphone 5 specifically opening texts and sometimes loading games. Other times it takes awhile for the home button to register and the lock button can have lag when turning the screen off. I agree iOS is very smooth but I feel like its easier to be that way since the os is essentially an app launcher with not much else going on. I just hope the bb10 browser is as smooth as iOS.

I wouldn't draw any conclusions on the speed and smoothness of the OS until it's actually out on sale, as the videos you see on the Internet at the moment are almost certainly not final builds (although I personally haven't seen any of the lag you're talking about even in these videos). However, as DJM626 said, RIM knows that lag was a major issue in the original BBOS, and I doubt they'd allow BB10 to show any signs of lag once it goes on sale.Passport (10.3.1.2726) | iPhone 6 (8.3) | Lumia 1020 (WP8.1 GDR2, Lumia Denim) | Surface Pro 3 (256GB i5, W8.1)

Be best if someone that has the latest dev build would chime in.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

I haven't seen any lag in the videos, and all the transitions seem more impressive than the other platforms. I have seen issues with the Dev Alpha B's not getting the upward gesture from the bottom right on the first swipe, but as has been widely explained on the forum, the bulkiness of the Dev B's case to hide the L underneath is the cause of the missed gestures.

Don't judge the performance of the final build based on any developer build. There have been enough improvements during the life of the PlayBook and the Dev Alphas that everyone should have learned that lesson several times by now. For what it's worth though, the Dev Alphas already have minimal lag for most things, and we know they're not as fast as the final release will be.

Folks also need to remember that the dev alpha's got only 1Gb RAM. If there's going to be 2Gb RAM in the Z series as rumoured, then it's just going to get better. I don't really see lag on the dev alpha A right now (and way less lag compared to my dual-core, 1Gb Android phone), and my understanding is that performance on the dev alpha B is better. We should expect release candidate to be better if not WAY better than on the dev alpha B.

the demo videos we have seen of the devices are not final they are still just half assed versions of the OS to show some features that the devices have, i would put money that alot of the UI will change come unveiling

regards the lag generally speaking...its hard to really tune into this since nothing we've seen is final release software and hardware. However i notice alot of folk hoping or comparing to Iphone... I for one hope its nothing like ios i want it be above and beyond iOS in all aspects.
