No other phone is able to open more than 10 applications and use them at the same time like the Note 4 does. Also, playing games and doing other intensive tasks is not a problem for the Note 4.

But even though it has such a powerful hardware, sometimes it starts to lag, stutter and freeze all the time. This is not expected from a phone with 3 GB RAM and octa core processor.

The reason why the phone lags is because of the Touchwiz firmware that it comes with. Even though the Touchwiz firmware is full of features and applications that many users appreciate, it makes every device lag and stutter.

It uses a lot of unnecessary processing power and RAM memory. RAM memory usage is high even when the phone is not being used. This comes as a result of many applications and services running on the background.
