[Q] Why is Android still laggy?

Now before anyone attacks me for bad mouthing their favorite mobile OS, let me state that I've been using Android since the G1.

I know I'm not the only one who has this problem or has made this observation. I have only ever purchased flagship devices. Quite a few since 2009. Every single one has been laggy.some more than others but here I am on a brand new Note 4 having the same problem again. It was the same with the Nexus 6 before it and the Nexus 5 before that and so on and so on.

I thought things would get better over time but even with 5.0 the lag was there. It actually made my Nexus 5 worse and my nexus 6 ran like crap... so much so I had to switch to the bloat ware filled Samsung Note 4,which despite having its own lag problems,runs better than the N6 it replaced.

Someone please explain to me why this is still an issue all these years later and is there ever hope for a smooth running android device.

Please don't come in here and say I'm holding/doing it wrong or that your android device isn't laggy. That's BS.

I love the functionality of Android and I don't plan on ever switching.I've even bought an iPhone when the 5S was released and learned it wasn't for me.

Hope this is the right place for this post.
