Question: Iphone x SLOW and LAGGY

i recently got my iphone x and im a little bit disappointed because the

device feels very laggy. a lot of times when switching between apps

, minimizing apps, and SPECIALLY scrolling down in safari , youtube, and even

in setting, you can see slow downs, lags, hangs, and low fps animations.


I tried reseting it 2 times and also restored it 2 times and but doesnt help.


I run some benchmarks with antutu and 3dmark and geekbench and results are fine -

like any other iphone x and even better.


Im running the latest 11.2.


Any ideas? thoughts?

iPhone X, iOS 11.2

Answer:
Answer:

I tried to restore the phone 3 times the normal way using itunes and it didnt help.


NOW, i tried restore using RECOVERY MODE and WOW it is finally

fast and almost no lag at all! big difference!


I just dont understand how come a device that just arrived from

factory is so slow, and why i need to wipe it and restore it in order to get

it work properly . very very strange.

Here's a fix that worked well on my iPhone 8 Plus and also my older devices.


Go into Settings > General > Accessibility > Increase Contrast > REDUCE TRANSPARENCY: ON


By turning this on, you will see your iPhone lag a lot less, but some of the menus will look less aesthetic. Not really a big deal.

Do you see the same on demo phones at your local dealer?


If so, it's just the way it works and you may be more sensitive than most to it (I certainly don't see anything like that.)


If not, take a look at what apps you have running; one or more may be using excess processor time.

I have my iPhone X and iPhone 6s Plus which just came back from battery repair. I have restored both phones from the same icloud backup. They are about as identical as they can be and yet performance isn't even close.


What's a little hard to describe is the circumstances needed to reproduce but it happens often and the most common use case for me is I get an update from Facebook or Twitter that something has just come in. If I click the notification then I'm brought to the App and often with the iPhone X I'm waiting for 30-40 seconds before the update is visible. On the iPhone 6s Plus it's about 1 second.


Sometimes on Facebook it's even worse, I just get brought to basic frame Facebook app frame and there's a blank white screen with a back arrow. It never loads. I don't ever remember this happening with the 6s Plus but I haven't tested this enough there to be sure.

Thank you, your advice fixed the problem I was having with my iPhone X lagging between apps, occasionally closing apps, and processing slowly. Now, I’ve turned “reduce transparency” on and it’s almost as fast as it was when I got it.

This is what he means by increasing contrast on certain things btw. No big deal if you’d prefer your phone to work faster

When things like that happen, it's almost always a runaway app.


Try to close any apps you're not actively using; that isn't normally necessary but it can be if an app is misbehaving.


You may also want to check using the Battery settings window to see if any app is using more power than it should, also indicative of a runaway app.

Thank you William,


I almost always close out my apps when I’m finished with them. I checked my battery usage, and nothing seems out of the ordinary (I do spend a lot of time on safari, which was 24% of my battery life, but that sounds about right).


I’ve also tried Settings>>>General>>>Accesibility>>>Increase Contrast>>>“reduce transparency” because I saw where someone said that helps, and I can say it has helped significantly. But the problem is still there, with the glitching/lagging and unresponsiveness. And now my display doesn’t look as beautifully seamless as the software is intended to make it look.


Any other suggestions? This phone was $1149, and for it to be lagging like this is definitely frustrating.


Thanks,

Austin
