I have a dilemma with my G300. It comes in the form of typing lag, ESPECIALLY when I'm using Whatsapp. It doesn't really happen via SMS or other inputs, Whatsapp is the main app I use where I notice it the most. Today I installed Viber as an alternative and the lag is there too.
The lag is most apparent with SwiftKey (my most used keyboard). It's so bad I decided to give various other keyboards a go including the new "Kii" which is very much like SwiftKey but suffers the same issue on my phone.
The lag becomes even worse when I'm running a background app such as TuneIn in my case. I've tried older versions of TuneIn thinking it was consuming too much ram but it's always the same.
I realise our G300s only have 512MB ram but I was using a Galaxy Europa before this with less than half of that and I never had this sort of lag with my keyboard. The lag isn't anywhere near as apparent when I use the stock keyboard but I have big hands and I simply can't use it!
CM9 R7 is the best build I've used on this phone - it fixes the volume issues and everything else, but this lag caused me to try Lightning rom today. I have the same problem there too.
I've been back to Gingerbread but there are so many issues with those roms it's not worth it. I feel I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place with the G300. CM9 ICS is actually really fluent at all other tasks but when it comes to typing it's so frustrating.
I've come to the conclusion its a problem with memory usage based on what I'm seeing, other people with other phones can be found complaining about ICS and keyboard lag via Google - https://www.google.c...iw=1366&bih=624
So does anyone else experience it this bad and what have you done to overcome it?
Edit :: I should add that I've messed with all the options in memory management / Performance in CM9 and they haven't really made a difference.
